The State of the Internet of Things: Opportunities and Roadblocks - Expert Panel

The Internet of Things (IoT) has now become a mainstream term but much of the attention is focused on the latest gadgets rather than its potential in super-charging efficiencies of every industry sector. Whether it's using connected devices to monitor the health of a patient or an elderly relative in their homes, GE"s smart jet engines that transmit terabytes of data on its condition in-flight or ensuring miners' safety and productivity with integrated communications, tracking and real-time analytics; Internet of Things can have a monumental impact on global economy, with the forecast of over $14 trillion in the next two decades, according to latest research by Accenture.

But what does this all mean for IT professionals? Beyond the trade show gadgets, IoT initiatives require immense support from all IT functions. Collecting, storing and alayzing immense amounts of data, which can be easily accessed in the cloud at any time and securely shared across connected devices is no easy feat. Moreso, a standardized set of guiding principles is essential for governance and proper implementation of every supported initiative.

Join this expert panel session, featuring some of the leading industry minds, as they share unique perspectives and vision into into the future of IoT and join the conversation in an interactive Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

Panelists include:
- James Hogan, Managing Partner, Vista Ventures
- Mac Devine, Vice President SDN Cloud Services and CTO, IBM Cloud Services Division
- Stephen Mellor, CTO, Industrial Internet Consortium
- Jeff Smith, CTO & EVP, Numerex
- Darin Andersen, CEO, CyberUnited

  • Semantic Natural Language Understanding w/ Spark, ML Annotators & DL Ontologies Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    David Talby, CTO, Atigeo
    A text-mining system must go way beyond indexing and search to appear truly intelligent. First, it should understand language beyond keyword matching. (e.g. distinguishing between “Jane has the flu,” “Jane may have the flu,” “Jane is concerned about the flu," “Jane’s sister has the flu, but she doesn’t,” or “Jane had the flu when she was 9” is of critical importance.) This is a natural language processing problem. Second, it should “read between the lines” and make likely inferences even if they’re not explicitly written. (e.g. if Jane has had a fever, a headache, fatigue, and a runny nose for three days, not as part of an ongoing condition, then she likely has the flu.) This is a semisupervised ML problem. Third, it should automatically learn the right contextual inferences to make. (e.g. learning on its own that fatigue is sometimes a flu symptom—only because it appears in many diagnosed patients—without a human ever explicitly stating that rule.) This is an association-mining problem, which can be tackled via deep learning or via more guided ML techniques.

    David Talby leads a live demo of an end-to-end system that makes nontrivial clinical inferences from free-text patient records and provides real-time inferencing at scale. The architecture is built out of open source big data components: Kafka and Spark Streaming for real-time data ingestion and processing, Spark for modeling, and Elasticsearch for enabling low-latency access to results. The data science components include spaCy, a pipeline with custom annotators, machine-learning models for implicit inferences, and dynamic ontologies for representing and learning new relationships between concepts.

    David Talby is Atigeo’s CTO, working to evolve its big data analytics platform to solve real-world problems in healthcare, energy, and cybersecurity. David has extensive experience in building & operating web-scale data science and business platforms, as well as building world-class, Agile, distributed teams.

    Bhagvan Kommadi, CEO, Architect Corner
    As businesses begin to rely more on data-driven Artificial Intelligence applications, the new applications lead to new business issues, security, and privacy concerns. Each bank also needs to have a transparent system for total audit-ability so one can see who did what, and when. Bank can use AI Deep Learning techniques to identify erroneous or incomplete data to avoid misleading decisions.The new AI applications introduce a number of business, security and privacy issues which will have to be addressed. Neural Network, Natural Language Processing, Image Recognition, Speech Recognition and Sentimental Analysis techniques are Deep Learning techniques used in Banks and Financial Services. AI Deep Learning techniques are used to help with anti-money laundering programs, know-your-customer checks, sanctions list monitoring, billing fraud oversight or other general compliance functions, artificial intelligence can:

    - Improve efficiency
    - Weed out false-positive results
    - Reduce costs and increase profits.
    - Make better use of workers’ time and company resources
    - Help banks handle their compliance monitoring
    - Automate some legal and regulatory work

  • Will AI agents secretly plot to kill us? Apr 11 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Charles Vestur, Consultant at Eleven Strategy
    In October 2016, two scientists from Google Brain published a research paper explaining how two AI managed to communicate in an encrypted way, leaving humans and other AI agents unable to decipher what they were telling each other.

    More recently in February 2017, DeepMind (another Google subsidiary) presented how two AI agents that are competing in a game could develop "highly aggressive" behaviors.

    I heard many people quoting these two facts, some excited, some scared, but both having no idea of what these research experiments were really about.

    Far from the clickbait articles, we'll try to get a better understanding of what was the approach of the scientists, detailing the objectives and introducing Adversarial Neural Networks and Deep Reinforcement Learning principles.
