Fog Computing – Pundit Hype or Critical Foundation for the Internet of Things?

I will open by defining what fog computing is along with some of the rich history of the fields of distributed computing and remote monitoring/control.  Next I will give an overview of the OpenFog Consortium mission, organizational structure and .  I will finish with a introduction to the first major working group product of the consortium, The OpenFog Reference Architecture Release 1.0  published in February, 2017.  There will be time at the end of the session for discussion and I encourage asking challenging questions regarding any of the assumptions or statements made in the session.

Keynote: Brian McCarson, Intel, Extracting Business Value Across all Phases of the IoT

The Internet of Things is transforming the way we do business and the way we live our lives.   But this IoT transformation is an evolution, represented by three distinct phases: connecting the unconnected, creating smart and connected things, and building a software-defined autonomous world.  With an estimated 85% of devices still unconnected, we have a tremendous opportunity to accelerate major technology breakthroughs and innovations that accelerate this evolution across the phases in a variety of market segments.

Executive Panel: Meeting the Challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution along the Microelectronics Supply Chain

Due to recent advances in semiconductor technology, the world is on the verge of creating communication methods with unprecedented information exchange capabilities. The Big Data Revolution, or so-called 4th Industrial Revolution, fuses the physical and digital worlds, and has the potential to connect billions of people and dramatically enhance the productivity and effectiveness of organizations. Turning that promise into reality depends on collaboration and continued advances throughout the semiconductor supply chain.

Keynote: Katherine S. Winter, Intel, Big Data In Autonomous Driving

As autonomous cars prepare to hit the roads, a tidal wave of data will come with them. Today, the average person generates around 650 megabits of data per day. By 2020, an autonomous vehicle will produce approximately 4 terabytes of data per day. Autonomous vehicles will need to navigate new environments, continuously update high-precision maps, anticipate what other cars around them will do and learn from the collective knowledge of other autonomous vehicles, which will be stored in the cloud.
