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. How does the ability to transmit more data faster and process data closer change the use of IoT? Will legacy systems stay as is, or having it built it, will new solutions take advantage of the dynamics?

Discuss: Smart Manufacturing Beyond Downtime
IIOT-01
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?

Discuss: Security for Open Source IoT
OS-04
It’s unfortunate that so many companies believe that security obscurity is the right strategy. Security communities have embraced open source to monitor, secure and test IoT solutions. Does open source security run the danger of being mastered by hackers without the community noticing? How do you integrate open source into your existing security plan? What standards group are leading the way in protecting IoT?

If you have a cold you get a prescription, if you are told you will have a cold it is predictive. No one can predict the future but if its cold and you aren’t wearing a jacket 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
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 tradition 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 fighter fire with fire. What security best practices that take us getting beyond identity and auditing?
