Day 1 - 23 September 2021
IoT Digital Infrastructures – Chairperson’s Welcome
Opening talk – overview of sessions and key highlights.
Applying Sensors for Smarter Living
- The future of the cognitive city with AI and IoT sensors.
- Utilising edge and 5G capabilities for immediate response connectivity.
- How to move from legacy infrastructures to a digitally optimised eco-system.
Living at the Edge for Optimum Response
- Edge processing for optimum IoT deployments – how this resolves latency and connectivity barriers.
- The advantages of running on quicker response rates through a de-centralised system.
- Cloud analytics Vs Edge analytics – which allows for better data capture?
Barriers to Adoption
- Barriers of legacy systems hindering digital progressions including, highly granular data, data protection and security, connection standards and products sold.
- The need for growth in new business models to enable digital progressions – the modernisation model.
- Cyber security as the afterthought – how to protect this from the start.
Panel: Unlimited Connectivity – IoT for Smart Infrastructures
- How are IoT and wireless solutions enabling greater connectivity for enterprise infrastructures?
- As 5G allows for heightened connectivity and efficiency speeds, how is the adoption of this disrupting smart infrastructures?
- Ideas on where to start – what needs to be implemented early on in the process of digitising infrastructures?
- How to understand the data and glean insights through IoT and AI.
- IoT’s role in building sustainable infrastructures.
Digital Twins – the Connection Between Digital and Physical
- Are digital twins the best starting block for building an optimised product/ system?
- How this technology enables AI, ML and IoT to work together to build concepts into reality.
- Using digital twins at scale to optimise the enterprise as we move passed a single asset limitation.
- Understanding the results to then put optimised solutions in place.
Living on IoT – Technology for Buildings and the Smart Home Experience
- Building connected devices – understanding the value and what solution is needed.
- Interoperability for connected buildings – sensors, systems & data.
- How cyber security and standards are evolving for smart homes.
- Buildings of the future, what are the next steps? A look at connectivity options and fully intergraded systems.
Cloud for the Infrastructures of Tomorrow
To follow soon …
Women in TechEx Panel: Innovating for the Future – Where are the gaps?
- What are the latest innovations and solutions across the IoT landscape?
- Knowing the gaps across industries – where can you make a difference by innovating?
- Looking at the shift in the ways we innovate and what this is for – no longer just about ROI, but the ethical considerations.
- Moving from the idea of PoC’s ‘proof of concept’ to MVP ‘minimum value products’.
- A look at the opportunities disruptive technologies provide to create a more sustainable future – the shift to Society 5.0.
The session will cover the key considerations to look at when choosing the best IoT solution for a project.
Innovative Application Development
- Developing for the consumer – understanding the market need first.
- Key focuses when developing – security, privacy, compatibility and connectivity.
- Ready for market – where to look for investment and funding opportunities.
Testing and Regulations
A look at the challenges and opportunities from a testing and regulatory perspective when developing an IoT solution.
Prepare to Succeed – The Importance of R&D
- Research – What are the initial steps in researching and how to utilise the data gathered to understand your consumers.
- Innovation – Discussing the careful execution of a Proof of Concept (PoC) and managing expectations.
- Adoption – Industry use-cases of pilot adoption and acceleration.
- Outcome – How to determine if it was a success and how you can alter to succeed.
