Headline Keynote – AI – From Edge to Cloud to Edge Again

Session Abstract: Although AI has achieved celebrity status today, the record of its mid-century origin shows early application in what today are called the 3 PC’s of the edge and IoT –“perpetual connectivity, pervasive computing, and precision control”. After a period of contracting into the datacentre, today AI is experiencing an unleashed ascendency at the edge, supported by the connectivity and smart things in the IoT. Join Dr. Tom Bradicich, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Fellow, and his special guests as they share deep insights into the technology of how AI operates at the edge and IoT, and its societal and business...

IoT Community Diamond Member Panel – Now, What is Your AI Strategy

Session Abstract: In the past, boards of directors would ask management, “what is your big data strategy”?, then later, “what is your cloud strategy?”, then “what is your mobility strategy?”, then “what is your IoT strategy?”. Today the question is, “what is your AI strategy?”. From consumer behavior to predictive analytics to supply chain management to drug discovery, AI is everywhere. Hence vendors are racing to comprehend AI in their offerings and operations. Join Dr. Tom Bradicich, HPE Fellow, as he leads a panel discussion among the IoT Community Diamond Members, as they discuss how they’re embracing AI to stay...

Panel – The Revolution of the Technology Ecosystem — How IoT is Influencing Enterprise Collaboration to Reduce Complexity, Improve Time to Market and Deliver End-User ROI

Session Abstract: Technology experts and analysts have described the Internet of Things as the second industrial revolution with an explosion of connected devices set to deliver the sequel to the dot-com boom from the late 90’s. The hype at the onset of this data revolution was palpable with almost every technology provider seeking to stake their claim within the vastly growing IoT ecosystem. The economic potential was ripe, and still is, but initial ROI for global industries has fallen short. In the current age where we expect instant gratification and results, we have forgotten that it takes time and knowledge...

How OSS and Cloud-Native Development Drive Change in the Automotive Industry

Session Abstract:  The decades-old strategy automakers have used for platform development has resulted in long development cycles, increased complexities, and a long time-to-revenue. Conversely, faster advancements are often attributed to the adoption of a modernized infrastructure platform and cloud-native technology. As the industry evolves toward the software-defined vehicle, it’s clear that the automotive value chain is also changing. In this session we will discuss how open source software and cloud-native development are becoming a pivotal part of the automotive value chain, how it can help to bring the software-defined vehicle to life, and the need for software-centric in-vehicle architectures.

AI Evolution – Not a Revolution – in Industrial IoT

Session Abstract: The Industrial IoT (IIoT) eco-system continues to recognize the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) and as a result, we spend large sums of money in AI work where we may be disappointed with the results. To be successful, we have learned that deploying AI in an IIoT applications needs to be an evolution and not a revolution especially when used in a Operational Technology (OT) environment. Today’s talk will share our experiences in developing AI based solutions including successes and challenges and then a recommendation how to evolve your IIoT solutions with an AI component. Using AI in...

IoT Empowered Predictive Maintenance

Session Abstract: When milliseconds matter, IoT empowers companies and governments to optimize the performance of their machinery, fleets, infrastructure, and buildings. Organizations that use IoT for predictive maintenance keep high-capital assets running at maximum efficiency and achieve greater production targets, lower operating costs, and minimize environment, health, and safety risks. Using data mining, advanced analytics, and data visualization, they detect hidden patterns in their data, allowing them to troubleshoot performance issues faster and more effectively – so that corrective action can be taken quickly. Jennifer Robinson will lead a panel discussion on the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) for predictive...

From Zero Trust to Full Trust

Session Abstract: The IoT has been under attack since its inception. This trend has accelerated recently with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, with Russian backed attackers targeting German wind farms in a bid to increase that nation’s reliance on Russian oil and gas [1]. The critical weakness of the IoT security, even when it is implemented, has been its network-centric focus. This historical focus on communications worked well enough when end points could be trusted. And for a long time, they have been to a degree. Computers and smartphones are typically in the possession of their owner. They’re protected by buildings...

Analytics on Patrol

Session Abstract: The world remains a dangerous place. Much of that danger is the result of forces outside of human control, but there remain human-made illicit activities which pose health, economic, and life risks to peoples local to and far from the activity. These activities, such as drug trafficking, often occur over vast areas that are only lightly monitored and often obfuscated by dense foliage and lack of any uniquely defining features, making the task of detecting and identifying both the existence and source of these activities very difficult. Aerial surveillance of these areas provides some security against and prevention...

Reducing Food Deserts with the Internet of Things

Session Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a system where the Internet is connected to the physical world via ubiquitous sensors. Over the years, IoT has evolved from simple computing and short range wireless communications to powerful data processing and the ability to monitor and control objects from long distances with minimal to no human intervention. Leveraging IoT, we successfully implememted a solution to provide urban communities access to affordable and nutritious food in areas considered to be food deserts. This solution enables the community to grow their own supply of healthy food all while reducing water consumption (a...
