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.

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.

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.

Despite the growth of the IoT, ever approaching ubiquity, most devices are still unconnected. And many enterprises are either reluctant to buy all-new, smart equipment, or not in the position to make such a capital outlay. The answer, of course if aftermarket add-ons. LPWAN can be a critical piece of that solution. Delegates in this session will learn how and why.

Keynote Presentation by Microsoft: How Fog & Edge Are Enabling AI
K-06
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.

The landscape of IoT Devices continues to shrink in form factor, bandwidth, and power consumption. These attributes demand an endpoint to be super-efficient in onboarding, software delivery mechanisms, as well as security constructs. Often, the devices are addressable through non-Internet Protocol naming and require data delivery to be handling in payloads meant for signaling traffic. Most solutions look to provide a way to retrieve data in proprietary methods and consider the endpoint to be disposable if modifications are required on the embedded software. Introduced in this session will be methods and procedures for retaining the endpoints with a software management lifecycle approach to maintaining and improving the capabilities for the full mechanical age of a device.

The IoT market in South America is projected to bypass $19 billion by 2023, according to a market research report published by P&S. The region's IoT boom is largely attributed to the number of governments increasing their efforts across the region and the development of smart cities across the continent. How are major organizations in this region preparing for and contributing to the flourishing South America IoT market, and how is the global IoT market responding?

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.
