Panel: Smart Infrastructure as the driver for truly connected living

  • The world around us is becoming smarter, with a record number of connected devices being utilised every day, but how truly smart are these individual technologies if they are un-interoperable?
  • Moving away from just maintenance to modernisation, how can we guarantee that this infrastructure will allow for improvement?
  • What can we do to ensure that we are ethically collecting this data, and that once it is collected that it is secure from cyber-attacks?

When Connected, Buildings Take on New Life as Digital Resources for IoT Ecosystem

As technology goes, we live in a world where smaller seems better. But imagine that a business’ most valuable computing asset might also be its largest asset – the very building that houses its operations.

Historically viewed simply as a place where people congregate or where things are made or stored, companies are taking the benefits of “going digital” much further to connect and manage their physical space, and tap into its process-improving and revenue-generating potential.

This session will address

  • Why now?  The trends and technologies making connected buildings an imperative
  • Why buildings?  The unique data and insights that allow businesses to better understand their own important populations
  • Which revenue-generating opportunities?  Applications for all businesses – from retail, healthcare, airports and warehouses to commercial office space.
  • What’s in it for IoT ecosystems?  The opportunity for application developers, enterprise system integrators, service providers and manufacturers.

Artificial Intelligence in Commercial Washrooms: a new frontier

Sensors are becoming common in washrooms and the cleaning industry. The deluge of data from the sensors opens up a new frontier for AI and machine learning algorithms to analyze and aggregate the data to make it actionable.

We will discuss some of the key learnings on how to transform the cleaning industry to be data driven and the challenges in infusing AI insights to a predominantly manual industry.

Designing IOT Systems for Lowest TOC

The purpose for developing any IOT system the transformation of a business for reasons of efficacy, cost savings, safety, process flow checking, or regulatory mandates. Ergo one can infer that the greatest value in the IOT system lies in what’s extracted from the data. Interestingly system integrators and engineers begin with the edge sensing device then design a system to send that data to the cloud on some cadence. In others words they sense most of the time what they can rather than what they should.  These design paths lead to a system with a higher total cost of ownership for owner, driven in part by high maintenance costs and a high false positive and/or set of false negatives in the outcomes.  The speaker will show case studies of integrated left to right designed IOT systems, contrasting them with right to left designed system in terms which lower TCO.

Minding the Billions: Enabling Wide-Scale and In-vivo Networking in Low Power Internet of Things (IoT)

Over the past few years, we have witnessed enormous interest in low power Internet of things (IoT). The low power IoT consists of tens of billions of passive sensors, which are annually attached to billions of items including pharmaceutical drugs, manufacturing parts, clothes, etc. Thus, by scaling cyber-physical systems to communicate and network these sensors, we would enable unprecedented sensing and interaction with physical world for applications ranging from logistic control, biomedical monitoring to prosthetic feedback and indoor navigation.

Realizing this vision requires addressing two key challenges: communication scale and application scope. First, the low-power nature of passive sensors fundamentally limits their communication range to within tens of centimeters to few meters. Second, the state-of-the-art low power IoT can only work outside human body, but is unable to operate inside human body where rich health-related information can be gathered.

In order to push the fundamental limits, we need novel software-hardware solutions to synergize innovations in physical layer, network layer and algorithms. In this talk, I will present two examples using this holistic design approach. First, I will present RFly [SIGCOMM’17], a drone relay which extends the range of existing low-power sensors by orders of magnitude and enables wide-area synthetic aperture radar imaging in indoor environments. Second, I will present IVN [SIGCOMM’18], the first system that enables networking with deep-tissue battery-free medical sensors inside living animals from a distance and deals with anatomical constraints.
