IoT Automation and the Modern Software Factory By Scott Willson For what feels like a lifetime, industry analysts and experts have predicted ‘this' will be the year the Internet of Things (IoT) finally takes off, both within industry and for consumers. But, as if by clockwork, each year of ‘guaranteed' IoT explosion has passed - the mass adoption and exploitation of the Internet of Things having failed to materialize. The IoT vision is almost utopian in its promise: a connected intelligent home or office, offering a simpler more convenient future. Our houses will be populated by smart ‘things'; thermostats that know precisely how warm we like our rooms, speakers that understand our taste in music and refrigerators that realize when we're running low on the essentials and act to replenish themselves. Our cities too will become more intelligent; our highways will be p... (more)

[slides] Data First Approach to Real Time Applications | @CloudExpo @MapR #BigData #Analytics

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Taking a Data First Approach to Real Time Applications To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources.

[slides] Powering Smart Cities with IoT | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #SmartCities

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Powering Smart Cities with IoT, Real-Time and an Agile Data Platform Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future business challenges.

Becoming Bionic - My Experience | @ExpoDX #DX #ML #ArtificialIntelligence

I recently became a bionic man. I have one good ear and one bad ear as a result of flying around while suffering colds and flus over the years, and with only one good ear it makes it difficult to hear a conversation in a noisy room, so I went looking for a high-tech digital solution. For the last couple of years I have been watching the start-up, Doppler Labs, as they developed their earbuds that were purported to have great sound, but also to enhance hearing.  This month after reading about their latest software release, I ordered a pair to try. There were three reasons I wanted to try Doppler Labs' HearOne Wireless Smart Earbuds. First because their goal was to enhance hearing for a few hundred dollars, rather than for many thousands of dollars that the hearing aid industry charges; second, they were building artificial intelligence (AI) into their earbuds; and thi...

[slides] The Hospital Concierge System of the Future | @ExpoDX #DX #IoT #M2M #SmartCities

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Building the Hospital Concierge System of the Future in the Cloud Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built an Alexa-powered voice application for both patients and nurses. Patients got answers for common questions, it provided service feedback and registered complaints. Nurses can register patient health metrics. They were only abl... (more)

Accelerating IoT Deployments to Achieve Business Goals Faster | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API

Accelerating IoT Deployments to Achieve Business Goals Faster The "Internet of Things" is an exciting area of tech, one in which industry experts estimate there will be more than 30 billion connected IoT devices by 2020. IoT is the inter-networking and instrumentation of physical devices - everything from streets, cars, factories, power grids, ice caps, satellites, and clothing to phones, microwaves, milk containers, planets, human bodies, etc. IoT creates an opportunity to measure, collect and analyze an ever-increasing variety of behavioral statistics. That being said, data, and more importantly insight into the data, is key for enhanced business value and achieving goals quickly. The proliferation of IoT devices and the sheer volume of large data streams have changed the data processing characteristics that we were accustomed to, forcing new architectures and inf... (more)

Should You Be Considering Web-Scale Networking? | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #Cloud #DataCenter

Should You Be Considering Web-Scale Networking? Web-scale networking, also known as hyperscale, is a concept that has been popularized by companies like Google, Netflix and Facebook, who adopted this model for its proven cost economics, resiliency, scalability, and in some cases, better performance for large companies. In recent months, the web-scale strategy has begun to gain the attention of enterprises in response to the changing data center landscape and growth of compute-heavy, complex technologies like AI, machine learning, and big data analytics initiatives. What should IT pros know about web-scale? Web-Scale Explained At its core, a web-scale strategy is a set of enabling technologies and practices that provide enterprises the same capabilities, cost structure and flexibility that the very largest Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) can deliver. The more realistic... (more)

Artificial Intelligence, Competition and Balloons | @ExpoDX #AI #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

W. Edward Deming taught that quality is achieved by measuring as much as possible and reducing variations, and reducing variation is achieved by improving the system, not just pieces.  Japan widely adopted Deming's philosophies in the 1950s and became the 2nd biggest economy in the world.  Quality improvement didn't decrease jobs in Japan, it increased jobs. AI now has the ability to expand and codify Deming's philosophies - to take them to the next level. AI can improve and standardize decision making based on logic, rather than the fear of missing objectives, bonuses or losing one's job.  It can continuously monitor for quality against specifications by analyzing streams of real-time data coming from embedded sensors connected to the IIoT, IoT and IoA (internet of agriculture).  This means companies that are aggressive early adopters of these digital technologies w...
