Keynote Presentation by Cradlepoint: How Enterprise-Grade IoT Can Improve Deployment Success Rates
K-01
Cradlepoint
Although the number of IoT projects continue to increase, the failure rate of IoT deployments is still surprisingly high. With a blank check and unlimited corporate access, system integrators can make almost any combination of IoT devices, networks, and IoT platforms work together. But what if an organization must implement through their own IT department and do so within a defined budget? George Mulhern, CEO of Cradlepoint, explains how to build Enterprise-grade IoT solutions that meet the requirements of both the IT and OT teams and increase the success rate of IoT deployments.

Smart Street Lighting: The strategic Backbone for Smart Cities IoT
SC-04
Street lighting is ubiquitous, and therefore Smart Lighting controllers can potentially carry numerous sources of data. Once every street lamp is connected, cities can favorably exploit a wireless network canopy, 30 feet in the air, enabling interaction with a wide variety of assets such as smart edge-vision and sound-recognition systems, environmental sensors, digital displays, actuators, etc. The connected assets can then be controlled and monitored remotely through dedicated open, expandable and secure interfaces.

Keynote Presentation by Google: The Future of Tech - Machine Learning to Change the World
GS-02
Google
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence technologies are now widespread and it’s important to step back and consider how far we have come. What have we learned about creating models, experimenting with design, and ensuring fairness and representation of our users? The lifespan of a product is changing, and static products are no longer viable. Any devices coming out in the future must be able to learn over time and produce feedback. In this session, Ricardo Prada, Director of UX at Google, will discuss how creating models and doing experimentation in design has brought us to the current state of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and will continue to change the world.

Connected Governments as the Future of Innovation and Cultivators of Authentic Smart Cities
SC-08
The City of Seat Pleasant
The technology used in Seat Pleasant's Digital Transformation includes an operational data platform (i.e. command and control platform, smart city platform) that allows Cities to aggregate data from disparate sources and visualize that data in a single view. This allows the City to share data across departments, and the solution also allows for the development of KPIs for measuring productivity and SOPs for improving the efficiency of processes. The solution was developed by IBM and is called the Intelligent Operations Center. There is a Public Safety/Emergency Management Module/Add-on to the IBM Intelligent Operations Center that was developed by Priority 5. This component allows our public safety individuals monitor crime activity across jurisdictions, plan for emergencies by understanding the interdependencies of critical infrastructure and respond effectively to emergencies by improving communication and coordination.

Keynote Presentation by Mastercard: The Future of Retail IoT
K-05
Mastercard
Today, it is vital that retailers know their customers better than they know themselves. Success can no longer be defined as giving customers what they want, but by anticipating what consumers need before they need it. Moving forward, success will be measured by how well retailers can personalize, customize and digitize consumers’ experiences. This is why the in-store experience is ready for disruption. From the fitting room mirror all the way to the storefront window to browsing and buying in a self-service environment – consumers are looking for seamless, integrated experiences, regardless of the channel allowing them to transition effortlessly from their digital device to physical store and move between platforms such as apps to text messages. The next evolution of IoT will be about the collection of the IoT experience made possible by a group of devices — and making those devices work in concert to deliver a more fully IoT-enhanced experience.

Microsoft
Advances in AI are already demonstrating the potential to augment what humans are capable of, and they are already fundamentally changing our lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined even five years ago. As AI becomes a critical part of mainstream products, services and other innovations the deployment of these technologies becomes critical. Fog and edge are deployment models for AI that is already revolutionizing the way that we think about the intelligent edge. In this session we will explore how fog and edge are delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling, as well as enabling scenarios that are challenging with the cloud alone.

How to Make Smart Cities Stay Smart with Open Source Projects
SC-09
City of Wilson, NC
Siemens AG
Toshiba Corporation
Power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, communications and weather systems are ingrained in our every day life. Many of these infrastructure systems exist for decades, if not longer, so security and longevity are paramount. Currently, all of these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks, which drains resources, money and time. It also leads to fragmentation and duplication of effort. This is where open source comes in. Many of these critical civil infrastructure systems are powered by Linux or Debian, which offers a golden opportunity to streamline efforts. For example. Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP), aims to speed implementation of Linux-based civil infrastructure systems, build upon existing open source foundations and expertise, establish de facto standards by providing a base layer reference implementation, and contribute to and influence upstream projects regarding industrial needs.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County
LPWAN is a solution that extends range while lowering cost. The result is a solution that fits almost all network requirements for IoT transmissions. However, the vertical markets vary widely as to their needs and make it so solution selling can limit the discussion. How do LPWAN manufactures and service providers point to the opportunities.
