May 9 – Expert Speaker Series:
NETWORKS FOR THE IOT
Networks are at the heart of the IoT architecture – and Ottawa is the networks technology hub of Canada. From 5G to long-range low-power connectivity, the network technologies underpinning IoT are rapidly advancing, spurring diverse and ubiquitous IoT applications and deployment at an increasing pace. Learn about the latest network technologies and trends that must be considered to maximize your IoT product, service or solution.
CULTIVATING PRECISION AGRICULTURE WITH THE IOT
We all eat, and as the global population continues to rise so does the demand for food. In a time when traditional farming is faced with vast agricultural challenges like a changing climate, diminishing arable land and environmental damage from intensive farming practices, the need for precision agriculture has never been greater. Learn how IoT supports farming of the future and why it is the cornerstone of precision agriculture innovation – improving efficiency and cutting costs while bringing environmentally friendly, sustainable and quality food to your table.
PANEL: IOT IN CANADA
IoT is a global phenomenon delivering economic and societal benefits wherever it’s deployed – but what exactly is the state of IoT in Canada? This dynamic panel session, made up of industry, government and academic experts will explore this and other questions including: What are the IoT trends? What sectors and regions are embracing IoT, and what are the benefits for businesses and citizens? How does Canada’s IoT ecosystem compare with the rest of the world and what business and policy challenges do we face? Attend this session for the opportunity to ask questions and have your say too!
YOU & ME IN THE AGE OF IOT
History has always seen an interplay between humans and new technologies, and IoT is no exception. In other words, the IoT has incredible potential, but it’s about us…it’s always about the people. Disciplines like behavioural analytics have shown us that products and services see more traction when they are designed to support human psychology. So, what does this mean for you and the Things in your life? How can the IoT be leveraged to change human behaviour in a positive way? Join this session to explore these questions and more.
CYBERSECURITY & ASSURANCE OF THE IOT
How can organizations encourage innovation while effectively managing the risks presented by the IoT? Cybersecurity challenges top the list of IoT concerns – not only are Things at risk from false control data, jeopardizing physical infrastructure integrity and human safety, but they also collectively provide a massive platform from which to launch sophisticated attacks. Learn the latest trends to combat IoT cyber threats and the new norms and standards afoot in the IoT ecosystem that are encouraging the move towards an integrated risk philosophy.
The 613 Showcase, taking place during the Networking Reception, is THE place for the local IoT community to gather while highlighting the IoT innovations, applications, and initiatives in the National Capital Region. Hear a series of lightning talks from local start-ups, companies, academia and other organizations to learn about their play in the IoT space. Join us for the opportunity to interact, connect and appreciate the robust IoT ecosystem in the Nation’s Capital.
