Panel Discussion: Edge Intelligence
GS-03
What happens when Moore’s Law, Cooper’s Law and Metcalf’s Law converge? The answer is the edge gets intelligent and the network increases its capacity to transmit. Traditionally the goal has been to minimize the bandwidth use, but these goals may be a thing of the past. Find out how the ability to transmit more data faster, and process data closer to the edge changes the IoT’s use cases. Will legacy systems stay as is, or having it built, will new solutions take advantage of the dynamics?

Discuss: Smart Manufacturing Beyond Downtime
IIOT-01
Armis
OT has two simple rules. If it’s running leave it alone, if its not, get it running. Those two rules do not sound like innovation is welcome. Yet IoT is delivering on Industrial 4.0 by increasing the data coming from sensors and enabling the SoftPLCs. How does smart manufacturing take us beyond measuring uptime and bring us to a new level of efficiency and production?

Spotlight: Asset Tracking and Location
IIOT-02
One for the earliest and most diverse IoT markets is asset tracking. Whether you are tracking scooters or construction cranes, the principles are the same. Know where your products are and know where they are going. What are features that every Asset Tracking system needs? What is different ways location can be detected? What innovation is occurring?

Spotlight: Supply Chain
IIOT-03
Eye-Seal
Managing suppliers and distributors requires a chain of trust to be established. Keeping track of pallets, rail cars, shipping containers, and trailers is one way to trust but verify. Today using the combination of block chain and IoT is another way to ensure transfers of ownership is complete. How is the technology changing the capabilities to deliver the goods?

Discuss: Smart Building for Facilities Managers
IIOT-04
Lots of changes are taking place in the way buildings are connected and managed. LED lighting, HVAC systems, personal emergency response systems, and surveillance systems are part of the revolution. In addition, there are changes in connectivity that should be noted. Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi 6 and Private LTE are all bringing better security and bandwidth. Where should a Facilities Manager Start? What improves operations? Do all these opportunities have an RoI? What are the benefits to the employees?

Discuss: Industrial Smart City Infrastructure
IIOT-05
Many cities have been known for their industries, but their history is remembered by their football team names (e.g. Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers). Is now the time for collaboration between the cities and industry? What are the synergies? How can the cities support IIoT? What can they do specifically with infrastructure to spur development?

Discuss: Connected Transportation: The Truly Mobile Edge
IOTT-01
Nowhere does IoT have more applications and stricter requirements that in the auto industry. With mapping technology enablement being integrated into GPS, driver assistance, entertainment and diagnostics, we have more sensors and computing being packed into a single space. With all the complexity, the industry sees their implementation as a competitive advantage. This panel looks for the best practices that the industry can agree upon to implement, and the innovation that keeps them apart.

Spotlight: Will 5G Transform IIoT?
IIOT-07
Syniverse
As 5G continues to grow as a powerful enabler of technologies, the number of vertical-market use cases continues to increase and produce more practical applications, including robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data that will contribute to analytics. These IoT applications will all need different requirements in terms of data capacity, speed, latency, reliability, coverage, location accuracy, and, most importantly, security. In this session, we will address these challenges by examining the network benefits of 5G for the IoT, including deployment considerations and security. Specifically, we will focus on how 5G will change how we think about connectivity for home, enterprise, and industrial applications, and create a truly connected world through the IoT.

Spotlight: Predictive Maintenance
IIOT-08
If you have a cold you get a prescription, if you are told you will get a cold it is predictive. No one can predict the future but if its cold season and you are exposed to the cold virus, chances are the prediction will come true. Patterns in the way similar things work can be used to predict their failure. How can monitoring machines going from watching a failure to stopping a failure. What will it mean for mean time to repair if the machine can be repaired before breaking down?

Discuss: IIoT Security AI and ML beyond Identity
IIOT-09
Ice Miller LLP
For many companies industrial espionage is a real concern, for others the employees may bring in a virus accidentally. Regardless of the root cause, industrial manufacturers need to be prepared. While traditional networks were considered closed systems, today’s connected industrial capabilities must contend with brute force attacks. Hackers can use ML to support their attacks, so it’s clear that companies need to fight fire with fire. What security best practices will take us getting beyond identity and auditing?

The Next Intelligence: How Will Next Wave ML&AI Evolve Analytics/Predictions and Automation?
IOTT-10
We are right in the middle of the 4th industrial revolution, but is this like the phone network where 5G was right on the heels of 4G? Is the intelligence we are deploying at the edge, at the network and in the cloud bringing another revolution? Will IoT be able to become truly intelligent and move beyond raw statistical analysis.
