Keynote: Building a Fully Connected, Intelligent World

  • We are witnessing an unprecedented technological revolution happening before our eyes, faster than any other in history. We know it as the “Internet of Things (IoT)” which is a network of interconnected intelligent devices that will make our lives more efficient, safer, and more sustainable. A technology that is promised to change our lives for the better. It was further proved in the pandemic year 2020, where we witnessed how our dependency on technology has evolved from just smartphones to smart devices in every aspect of our daily lives.
  • This keynote focuses on how the world’s largest telecommunication leader, Huawei is driving this change in the IoT industry to make people’s day-to-day lives better and smarter. Huawei is making giant leaps in the IoT industry, by offering a smooth user experience and seamless connectivity among billions of connected devices. Huawei’s vision is to offer a secure, scalable, easy-to-use infrastructure, and most importantly make significant contributions to the open-source ecosystem.
  • Come join us for this keynote where Suhail will show you how Huawei is building a fully connected, intelligent world.

IOT – Learnings from the Field

Recently, buzzwords like “Digital Twin,” “Industry 4.0,” “Industrial IoT,” and “Edge AI” have dominated the conversation around IoT and sensor data. Oftentimes we envision equipment-fixing drones, 4-D models of factories, and workers in Iron Man suits. At Palantir, we have a different view, and we’re excited to share it with you. Our exploration of IOT will cover the following topics:

  • How to avoid rebuilding commoditised solutions, instead building solutions that generate Alpha.
  • Why “good security” isn’t good enough.
  • Why starting small and growing with your organisation is optimal.
  • How to avoid building a point solution Frankenstein.
  • Why being predictive and proactive is more achievable than first thought.

Build Digital Twins for Your Industry

Digital twins are a vital tool that allow teams to visualize not just how things work, but how they will perform and react in the future. They can help transform data into decisions and drive new innovations. 

Airline manufacturers use digital twins to test different components. 

Automotive companies create virtual vehicles for performance and crash testing at minimal cost.  

Cities are simulating traffic patterns. And medical research is trying out new techniques on virtual organs.  

But to take advantage of this ever-evolving technology, you need the right toolset to build, process, and envision your simulated world. Join Robert Cowham to learn how to: 

  • Transform your tool stack to build digital twins. 
  • Integrate real-world data with your virtual world. 
  • Leverage game technology for rapid results.  
  • Build the future of technology.

IoT as a Service: Accelerate the Journey from Connectivity to Business Transformation

IoT is the fusion of technologies from sensors, connected through networks, extracting, and processing the data for multiple applications.

The complexity of adopting IoT solutions increases further as applications use multiple layers of technology sources, requiring varied skillsets for integration, operations, and maintenance. Also, the uncertainty on the RoI for the upfront investment and the scale of operations is among the top reasons organizations do not embrace IoT.

Delivering ‘IoT-as-a-service’ makes it possible for organizations to benefit from state-of-the-art technology by minimizing the cost of ownership and eliminating the complexity for businesses seeking new applications. Enabling organizations with a single pane of view dashboard to Deploy, Enrich & Manage customized IoT solutions will increase the adaptability of IoT to make it the next megatrend!
