2017 Keynotes: Taking a closer look into future disruptive technologies
2017 Track 1: Future Industry
Ever wished for an operations crystal ball? Connected devices, data analytics and enterprise asset management (EAM) are changing the way maintenance is conducted in manufacturing. Join the session to explore real world solutions that use powerful analytics and cloud technologies to reduce downtime, improve quality and streamline operations. Let’s make the world smarter, cleaner and safer with IoT!
Managing motors and pumps within a large refinery
Creating efficiency on the plant floor
Enhancing operations within the machinery in the factors
Automating processes once data is reviewed, and using IoT devices to track data on the factory floor
In the digital age, the world is transforming at a rapid pace. That’s the same for Caterpillar customers and the industries we serve.
Caterpillar is merging their expertise in iron with new and evolving digital capabilities. Connecting entire fleets, and using that data to create solutions that help customers run, grow and innovate their businesses.
From stone tools to smart devices, humanity has come a long way baby. Technology drove our evolution. But now the cyberspeed tech acceleration is navigating us down the dead end path of DeEvolution. Why is it that the more we connect, the more we disconnect. As AI evolves to become more human, we DeEvolve to become less human - and more robotic. Our malfunctional relationship with technology brings us to a crossroads: adaptation or extinction. To #DecodeDeEvolution,we must together #FindYourMissingThink
Fortunately, there is hope. Four steps will save us:
To create a sapien-smart& sapien-safe IoT we must breach and torch our human firewalls.We must do more than merely connect the dots of tech... or even connect the bots. Instead we must fully collaborate and coordinate to instead finally #ConnectTheThoughts.o make
2017 Ecosystem Center Stage : Project Kairos (Free to Attend)
The Industrial Internet of Things is creating an entirely new era of manufacturing and supply chain management, with endless possibilities for increased efficiency, greater asset control, and autonomous shipping. Enabling this new era requires flexible connectivity and the ability to deliver multiple solutions and new services from a robust connectivity technology. But so far, issues of interoperability, scalability, and reliability have stopped IIoT technology from reaching its true potential.
In this talk, the Bluetooth SIG along with industry leaders like Silicon Labs and Smart & Green will discuss and answer questions, in a fireside chat format, about the many connectivity models required for the IIoT, including point-to-point, broadcast and mesh. Discussions will include how Bluetooth mesh networking, its latest industrial-grade solution for many-to-many connectivity, will allow IIoT developers to create a reliable platform for large-scale device networks - ideal for deploying location services, asset tracking, system monitoring, full-scale building automation, and more.
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to be part of the discussion about the future of connectivity for the IIoT.
