  • IoT Device Management
    IoT Device Management Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Mar 23 2017 64 mins
    In our final class, we will look at the “Things” of the IoT – our nodes and devices – and how we can effectively commission, monitor, and detect problems in them throughout their lifecycle. We will look at methods for adding device management capabilities in our devices from the design stage as well as ways to add these capabilities in the legacy devices we looked at in the previous class. One topic we will look at is effective commissioning and decommissioning of devices in the network – how can we add or remove a node from the network without adversely impacting the rest of the network? Another area we will look at is security assurance and testing: how can we be sure of the device security – and how can we test it? And lastly we will look at maintenance. What methods can we use for testing devices or paths within the network and how can we effectively and safely perform system updates? To conclude our class, we will review our checklist and see what other issues we may need to be aware of in our IoT design. Day 3 sponsored by Wind River

  • Monitoring and Securing IoT Data and Communications
    Monitoring and Securing IoT Data and Communications Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Mar 22 2017 61 mins
    In our second class, we will begin at the heart of the Internet of Things – the sending and receiving of data to our “things.” Whether it’s collecting a simple room temperature reading or capturing a video frame for analysis, the IoT enables us to collect huge amounts of data for analysis then send out data in the form of commands or as human-readable data. The diversity of end devices makes this task difficult at best, as it involves myriad data types and protocols. This is key as we want to ensure the safety, security, and integrity of that data from its source to its intended destination. We will look at various methods we can use in our device design to effectively monitor and secure our data flow throughout the entire IoT network. Also, we will look at ways that we can approach communications issues with different protocols and physical layers in our network, which often consist of legacy devices that were not originally designed for the robustness required in the IoT.

  • IoT Overview and the Major Issues
    IoT Overview and the Major Issues Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Mar 21 2017 61 mins
    In this lead-off class, we will briefly review the principles of the IoT and some of the basic configurations that we may encounter (star with gateway, tree, and mesh) and how the devices are best connected to maximize efficiency. We will look at the major issues we face as these networks and associated “things” become more complex, including data issues, communication issues, device monitoring and troubleshooting, and system security. We will identify potential weaknesses in each of these areas and compile a checklist of features that we need in a management system that will carry out these needs. We will also look at ways to prioritize the criticality of the devices and/or their data to help us in assigning levels of security and monitoring capabilities (for example, a temperature sensor used to sense a fire versus a temperature sensor for outside ambient temperature).

    Customer support: Unleash your superpowers with AI Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Apr 13 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Flawless customer support directly translates to bottom line success. And that means reading customers' minds by offering real-time, reliable responses wherever they are—a feat that's not easily accomplished with call centers or even Live Chat.

    To help companies get it right every time, AI has stepped into the breach, cape blowing in the breeze. AI is impacting just about all areas of company activity, and now enables cost-effective, efficient, and superpowered solutions that turn customer agents into heroes, helping them assist more customers, more quickly, in the channel they're most accustomed to using—messaging platforms. Or maybe not using agents at all, but bots.

    Data in movement trumps data at rest. That’s why there is increasing importance on data rivers, ways to deliver the value of big data while in motion. But like any river, the big data river is made up of multiple feeds, coming from multiple sources. A true data river needs to support open protocols, multi- and hybrid environments from cloud to datacenter and handle conditions from drought to flood seamlessly.

    During this webinar, Sumeet Puri will discuss data rivers, lambda architectures, how event-driven architectures flow into data lakes and how microservices enable and are enabled by data rivers. He will illustrate the value and limitations associated with these technologies standards through case studies that draw upon his experience working with customers in the financial services, manufacturing, telecom and transportation sectors.

  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, Chief Technology Strategist, Cisco Apr 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, Chief Technology Strategist, Evangelist of New Frontiers Development and Engineering at Cisco, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.
