Industrial IoT and the new manufacturing2016-07-22

This is a private set of presentations to the Council. One-hour virtual session with 3 speakers. After each video presentation, Council members can ask questions, share best practices, and interact through chat. One of the hottest areas of investment last year was Industrial IoT, which racked up more than $1 billion in venture funding across nearly 100 deals. As the entire industrial process gets wired up, manufacturing and logistics is getting even more efficient and costly errors can be detected early or even predicted and averted.

Smart Things, Smart Data2016-09-07

As more and more things get connected, IoT will create networks of trillions of connected products and devices. How does that change the rules of competition, product life cycles, and the capabilities of individual products? In this session, we will explore how companies can thrive in the Age of Trillions, and get a sneak peak at startups starting to re-imagine how to build smart products, such as Israel-based OrCam, which is making it possible for companies to embed machine-vision AI directly in their products. Speakers: Mickey McManus, Author, Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology, Charman, MAYA Design Amit Man, VP Product, OrCam Technologies
