Let's Get Personal: Analytics for Patient Evaluation
Diagnosis has in the past been an eldritch art, combining patient data, studies and statistics, doctors’ professional experience, and symptom analysis in the supervising physician’s mind. Now, thanks to advanced machine analytics, doctors have better data available than ever before, and they are using it to inform ever more accurate diagnoses. We’ll show you how.
Industrial IoT Track
GE’s Digital Twins and Immortal Machines
Digital models of any object can seemingly live forever, but question we’re asking at GE is can those digital models, or Digital Twins, enable their physical selves to live forever? Can we meld service and design into a single process that allows us to transform jet engines, power generation turbines and more into immortal machines? This is the essence of the digital journey GE is on in the Aviation and Power industries, as we digitize our industrial assets and connect them from the Edge-to-the-Cloud. Digitization, along with GE’s technology leadership in additive manufacturing, is creating a new paradigm in how we operate and service our machines. Colin will discuss what the significant business outcomes this journey already has yielded and the ultimate path to machine immortality.
Small-Town LPWAN: Deploying LoRaWAN to Enable Infrastructure Efficiencies in Municipalities
Small- and medium-sized municipalities face huge challenges in getting smarter that include financial constraints, community concerns, infrastructure limitations and, sometimes most difficult, citizen buy-in. In this session, our speakers will talk about how an LPWAN connectivity strategy can check off all those boxes and let communities save money while serving citizens better.
The Smart Cities Track
Fleet Connectivity - Idea to Implementation
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) are market leaders in fleet management, and their Connectivity Division is setting the bar for quality and innovation around the world. The Connectivity Division has turned IoT technology into a key differentiator in their fleet management portal, Detroit Connect. Users are able to view vehicle fault events and performance data for insights into their overall fleet health, fuel economy and safety performance. The web, iOS, and Android Detroit Connect product suite is built to handle terabytes of data seamlessly flowing from trucks through 3G and WiFi telematics boxes located on-board the truck. In this panel discussion and Q&A, the audience will learn how fleet connectivity was taken from concept to implementation. The discussion will include the end user, business and IT perspectives, and will offer attendees insight into how this successful process can be modeled in their own digital transformation initiatives.
