IoT Grand Slam Dec 2022

CBT’s IoT Grand Slam Sessions


The Future of Industrial IoT: Augmented Reality – Lonnie Ludwig, VP, Solution Development

Unlike Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) allows the user to see both virtual and physical reality simultaneously. Using a wearable, a worker can access data, dashboards, maintenance histories, and 3-D schemas while in a factory setting, creating a digital overlay. AR is part of the movement toward Industry 4.0, in which smart technology enhances and automates traditional processes. But with all the wearables and software available on the market, how do you ensure successful implementation and user adoption? Join Lonnie Ludwig, VP of Solution Development, as he takes you through the AR journey and how to deliver near real-time ROI and prove business value.

Leadership in IoT: It’s All About Intentional Cooperation, Collaboration and Communication – Kelly Ireland, Founder, CEO and CTO

IoT, for most, looks like the wild west and at times feels like what the pioneers experienced on their journey over the plains and mountains in covered wagons. You have to be adventurous, hardy and willing to make the investment to venture in to this new frontier. Without all of those, failure is almost guaranteed. Needed as well is a different (and for many a new) type of leadership style across all factions of a company. What is required in order to be successful in this new IoT world? How can management adjust their leadership style to ensure the best results for their company as well as delivering successfully to their customers?

SPTIoTCoE Panel – Security, Privacy, and Trust Implications of the European Data Act and Data Governance Act – George Young, Chief Information Security Officer, Chief Technologist

We hear that IoT ” is all about the data”, and expect hundreds of trillions of Gigabytes to be collected annually within a few years. But when people understand the potential value of data, they tend to want to exercise control, and limit its use. Personal privacy and corporate confidentiality issues increasingly become apparent, along with the security implications of the merger of the cyber and physical worlds, and the intrusiveness of trillions of sensors. All of these issues combine to keep us from realizing the enormous value of IoT data. Then there’s lack of clarity regarding who has rights to the data, under what conditions.  The purpose of the European data act, the Data Governance Act, the GDPR  and related regulations is to address these issues, and allow for:

  • The public and government sectors to have appropriate access to private sector data
  • Requirements for sharing private sector data in B2B relationships and value chains
  • Rules governing behavior of technology companies and third party data service providers and the ability of their customers to switch among them.
  • Means for increasing access to data and encouraging the use of data for the common good
  • The practical preservation of privacy rights

The panel will discuss implications of these statutes, and specifically explain how security, privacy, and trust management technologies can allow device makers, service providers, trusted third parties, and web3 distributed services to practically comply with the requirements of these statutes, achieve the potential of data sharing, and unlock the value people have been talking about for the last decade.
