Edge Computing: Creating New IoT Applications
With billions of connected devices in use today, it has become inefficient to process the volume of IoT data in the cloud or data centers. More data is now being stored, analyzed and acted upon at the edge of the network. Artificial Intelligence at the edge allows companies to make real-time, data-based decisions that will improve operational efficiency while also creating new revenue streams. Looking ahead, most IoT applications and use cases will rely on edge computing to deliver value.

IoT in Retail: The Shopping and Purchase Experience
Thanks to the rise of IoT, the shopping and purchase experience will change forever. Increasingly, sensors keep track of items placed in shopping bags, eliminating the need for check-out. Smart shelves reduce inventory error and ensure that in-store items are where they say they are. Robots and beacons create a more personalized shopping experience that encourage loyalty. And payments are becoming automatic, no longer feeling like a transaction. What does the store of the future look like? What experiences do consumers want? What does this mean for businesses and their employees?

IoT in Healthcare: Changing Treatments and Changing Lives
Advancements in IoT have transformed the way patients, or potential patients, are treated. Wearable and implantable devices have the capability to transmit potentially life-saving data to doctors. High-speed and reliable connectivity enables remote surgical treatments. Cameras in homes allow elderly populations to age in place. Further integration of IoT in healthcare can dramatically improve lives, but there are understandable concerns around personal privacy and security. With technology powered by data, can we help and protect patients in a secure way?

IoT in Manufacturing: Automation, Optimization and Robots
With its market size expected to exceed $45 billion by 2022, the manufacturing industry was one of the early and most successful adopters of IoT. Companies integrate analytics solutions to predict the machine maintenance in factories, minimizing downtime. Augmented Reality goggles give technicians in the field real-time guidance on work orders, ensuring quality of work while empowering employees. Robots and sensors track and move inventory in a safe and efficient way. IoT has already proven its value in manufacturing, and new opportunities to create additional value continue to appear. What does the factory of the future look like? Are there any humans workers?

Smarter Cities, Smarter World
The world is becoming more urban, and people are moving to cities at a rapid rate. While many US cities already have integrated IoT solutions to improve the lives of their citizens, the expectations of a “smart city” are constantly evolving and changing. How are cities keeping up with citizen demands today while also preparing for smart city demands of the future? Will the constant digital transformation of cities mean remote communities can never catch up?

The Internet of Safe Things
The level of confidence in IoT security could have enormous business implications for organizations large and small. Emphasis is often placed on securing the device alone, but each player in an IoT ecosystem must do their part to help create an end-to-end security solution. This session will bring together IoT ecosystem players to discuss privacy, security, public safety and regulation.
