Keynote Presentation: Asset Tracking and Data Management Without Limits

How can you transform your IoT data strategy to deliver more efficiencies — from edge-to-endpoint — with Smart Data? 

We’ll review customer challenges in data management and what you need to consider for employing an end-to-end data strategy that utilizes smart data: 

  • Edge computing sets a new efficiency standard for delivering relevant operational data — providing more reliability, better latency, lower bandwidth, increased data security, and reduced operation costs.
  • Smart data generated at the edge equates to cost savings with greater efficiencies – transmitting only the data you need that’s more secure, accessible, informative, and actionable.
  • IIoT and Application Enablement Platforms smart data equates to less data volume to improve reporting with a manageable flow that provides faster reporting and reduced operational costs.

Presentation: Autonomy – The New Age of Agriculture

Farmers are constantly challenged to provide a growing global population with the resources needed to feed, clothe and fuel the world sustainably, all while facing a major labor shortage. Agriculture and technology have been intertwined for hundreds of years – from the introduction of the steel plow all the way to self-driving tractors. Up next? Autonomy. This session will explore:

  • How an industry as old as agriculture has adopted the IoT and integrated a powerful combination of connected technology, from GPS to sensors and AI, to enable farm equipment to work more efficiently, precisely and now autonomously, than ever before.
  • The technologies driving autonomy, including stereo cameras, sensors, and ultra-fast GPU processors to detect and interpret 360-degree changes and learn more information to grow smarter with each pass over the field.
  • The ways that autonomy enables farmers to face their challenges head on so they can execute their plans, increase productivity and take advantage of the flexibility of remote management solutions to confidently run their operation from anywhere.

Presentation: Wearable IoT Devices and AI in Pharma – Digitalizing drug trial outcomes and disease severity reporting

During Drug Trials, the efficacy of a drug is currently measured through endpoints of disease severity. Such endpoints are calculated using patient or physician-reported scores of severities. These scores have inherent subjectivity and face noise due to inter-observer variation. Medical sensors capture extensive raw data that can be refined through AI. Such AI can predict the disease severity scores using just sensor data. This System has been helping our Pharma clients in: 

  • 24/7 Patient Condition tracking – Some diseases require condition tracking all the time and manual recording is impossible. Wearable sensors present a temporal picture and rich data for causality analysis.  
  • Quantitative approach to Endpoints– Subjectivity in self-reporting of conditions is minimized. It also helps avoids physician-to-physician variance. 
  • Improved visibility to adherence – Patients and clinical staff are prone to omissions in the regimen. Wearable sensors make it easy to prune the clinical data that need to discard due to non-adherence to the protocols.

Presentation: Low-Code IoT Automation to enable Healthy, Safe and Sustainable buildings

The building industry is going through a major transformation. Post Covid-19 the buildings are becoming occupant centric as opposed to fixed schedule centric. With the proliferation of IoT sensors the buildings will be able to listen, learn and communicate with different devices, their human occupants and building automation systems. The data overload from these sensors and other systems need automation that can not only allow new usecases to be built and deployed quickly but also scale across different buildings while reducing operational costs and providing a healthy, safe and sustainable environment.

  • Current challenges with existing buildings and building management systems
  • Empowering citizen developers (domain experts, IT admins, operations managers) to deploy new usecases at scale
  • Examples of automation building functions (indoor air quality) for healthy buildings
