IoT IT - BI and Machine Learning (Grand D)
Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics
At a simple level, predictive analytics tells us what to expect, while prescriptive tells us how to manage it. How do IoT information streams tell us about the trends of our machinery? How much data is needed for analytic systems to spot trends? If trends can be spotted, can analytics data make it so that IoT failure rate is minimized? How can analytics add to the availability of systems?

Utilizing the Wireless Lighting Control Network as a Platform for Enabling Industrial and Enterprise Applications
Lunera Lighting Inc.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) needs to connect several devices to a common network enabling efficient, reliable data transfer. For most industrial settings, connecting sensors and equipment to the facility network is difficult and tedious; particularly in retrofit applications, where installing new wiring is troublesome, if not impossible. On the other hand, data shows that building owners who have upgraded their lighting infrastructure to wireless lighting controls are easily able to take advantage of additional IIoT opportunities and use the wireless lighting system as the backbone for enabling other IIoT technology applications.

Driver Assisted - Insurance Reduced - Connected Cars
Swiss Re Management (US) Corporation
Octo Telematics North America
If we want to talk about convergence, we don’t have to look beyond telematics and the automotive industry. Connected vehicles are making humans better drivers by delivering alerts and alarms concerning our surroundings and our driving behavior. How does this impact insurance? Have we seen an improvement in Highway safety? Are there lessons are to be learned that can be shared with other industries?

SIMs, ESIMs and IoT Opportunities
Oasis Smart SIM
Interoperability, in cellular networks, was achieved with the use of SIMs to manage identity, authorization and roaming. For IoT, SIMs often represent a costly addition to the modules and overall deployments. Hear how the use of ESIMs has become an alternative to providing the network’s requirement for security and a value ad for an IoT network

Testbed Use Case 2: Asset Efficiency and Landing Gear: Keeping up with What Comes Down
The Aircraft Landing Gear use case stems from challenges to enhance flight safety and reduce operational and maintenance costs. The current practice of scheduled maintenance increases the cost of maintenance steeply, especially in the case of an aircraft operating beyond its designed service life. Hence organizations need to adopt Condition-based Maintenance (CBM) which is possible only with an effective health monitoring system. This aircraft landing gear use case, which is based on the Asset Efficiency Testbed, enables automatic detection, diagnosis, prognosis, and mitigation of adverse events arising from component failures; ensures flight safety and reduction in the overall operational and maintenance costs.

Enabling Voice Driven Smart Home Experiences with Amazon Alexa
Pivotal Software, Inc.
Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV, provides a set of built-in abilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with smart home devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Examples of these skills include the ability to control lighting and temperature. Customers can then access these new skills simply by making a command to Alexa. This session will walk through the Smart Home Skill API and showcase what is possible today.
