Connect-The-Thoughts for Sapien-Smart IoT
  • Speaker Robert Katz - Executive Director, Cyber Science Institute

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: 

  • Boost Your CyQto heighten resilience & repel threats.    
  • Mind The Cynapse to enhance cyber-human interfaces and protect networks.    
  • Disrupt The Disruption to instigate innovation and ignite people-power.   
  • Think Outside TheBubble to crush complacency and embrace change.

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

What’s Next For The IIoT and Supply Chain Connectivity
  • Moderator Chuck Sabin - Senior Director, Business Strategy & Planning, Bluetooth SIG
  • Speaker Kamran Shah - Director of Corporate Marketing, Silicon Labs
  • Speaker Peter Wildhorn - Managing Director, Smart & Green

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.
