9:00 - 10:00 CPS Week Keynote
The Brain fueling the Fourth Industrial Revolution
Victor Bahl, Microsoft
There’s a shift in the technology and business landscape that is gaining momentum. It is dramatically altering how data is created, ingested, processed and acted upon. Industries, ranging from manufacturing to space-exploration, healthcare to transportation, retail to telecommunications are infusing information technologies into their day-to-day processes and tasks. They are developing real-time control systems that use sensors and actuators along with machine learning and artificial intelligence to create new functions, improve efficiency and reduce cost. At the center of this new world is edge computing.
I will explore this exciting new computing paradigm from the perceptive of a researcher who has been working on this for over ten years. I will discuss the evolution of the intelligent edge, describe a few real-world applications, technologies and products that customers are willing to pay for. I will share with you the progress we have made and more importantly the lessons we have learned as we developed an edge-based, (hybrid-cloud) live video analytics system called Rocket. Rocket is deployed in a US city and it is used to reduce traffic-related fatalities and improve urban mobility. Video analytics will change lives and we are moving forward aggressively towards the democratization of this technology. Time permitting, I will peek into the future, who will be impacted and why. I will lay out some of technical and business challenges facing the large-scale adoption of edge-computing and the opportunities these challenges are creating.
