Business progress demands that we deliver more with less. But what happens when we change the paradigm by applying transformational thought rather than incremental improvement. Maybe less actually turns into more and delivers in proportion. We all understand that our current construction processes are very inefficient and that we have to focus on digitization, following the path of manufacturing. Reaching out to the world of Digital Twins has provided the hope of a silver bullet, but should we put all our trust in this solution? What does implementation of a digital building lifecycle really mean? How do we test our predictions? How has the Digital Twin Consortium influenced this journey and what are the lessons learned from doing this in a company that develops technology that can be leveraged in the solution.
What does it take to build a new, user centric, open source multi-device operating system for all IoT scenarios? What does it take to initiate and foster an open source ecosystem of device makers, content creators, community supporters that takes it strenght from numbers and active participation? What does it take to build a global brand and compatibility practices that ensures application portability, user experience and a broad and fair successful ecosystemfor all involved players? What does it take to put us, the end consumers, first for once?

Quantum technologies are undergoing rapid change and will deliver transformational capabilities to many fields. Companies large and small are expanding the capabilities of quantum computers, governments are supporting quantum programs, and strides that are even taking the technology into space. This session will provide a practical overview of current state of the art of quantum computing applications. We will lift the hood and shine a light on show what quantum computing can deliver, its limitations, and what people should expect in terms of performance and progress in the years ahead.
There are problems that even the most powerful classical computers are unable to solve because of their scale or complexity. Quantum computers may be uniquely suited to solve some of these problems which could lead to new scientific breakthroughs such as better and cheaper medicines, methods to diagnose diseases sooner, new materials to make more efficient solar panels or other devices, and improved financial models that better capture value from the market.
But what exactly is quantum computing, what are the properties that make quantum computing advantageous, and at what types of problems are quantum computing best suited to solve? This session will provide a practical introduction to quantum computing concepts and applications.
NASA is broadly pursuing a digital transformation strategy across the junctures of its missions, technology, workforce, stakeholders and infrastructure. NASA is formulating its digital transformation strategy through six strategic thrust areas or digital building blocks of transformation. The digital transformation strategy is cross-cutting to escape silos and includes a thrust designated as “model-based everything” where digital models are integrated together and are projected to be the future standard of enterprise-wide functions. The digital twin methodology is foundational to understanding and integration of modeling and simulation across all of NASA’s ambitious thrusts of the transformation. The digital twin is interdisciplinary, integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines and using a synthesis of approaches to enable synchronized decision-making with increasing complexity, velocity, confidence, and adaptability. John Vickers, one of the originators of the digital twin concept, will discuss priorities, challenges and use cases for NASA’s imperative of a digital twin-driven ecosystem.

A decade ago, connecting IoT devices was relatively simple. You put a SIM card into a 2G/GPRS modem and the device could go almost anywhere in the world, connect on at least one network, and data flowed via the public internet to the client. Simple, but not very flexible or cheap. In the intervening time much has changed. New connectivity tools have become available, including 5G, LPWA and eSIM, while trusty 2G is on the way out. The network architecture has also changed radically with the growth of cloud services, edge computing, private networks and the arrival of the hyperscalers. The last few years have also seen radical changes in pricing models that will have significant implications for years to come. In this session we discussion what the global IoT connectivity landscape in likely to look like in another decade, and what implications does that have for decisions we make today.
