Smart Cities 2.0: What Works Today Let's imagine a modern city in 2020. A Smart City. Urban planning, ecology, and information technology reach everywhere to improve quality of life. Sensor-based systems are already in place in many municipalities all over the world. Soon, smart cities everywhere will be generating tons of data to help us find a parking spot, conserve water, monitor transport, crowds, and pollution levels, and keep us safe. In Smart Cities 2.0, the citizens are driving. They demand quality-of-life indices. Lighting, energy, water, transportation are crucial; air quality and noise pollution touch everyone acutely. Sustainability has moved to the forefront and so has urban resilience, the ability to recover quickly from climate change risks or other disasters. Carlos Herrando
Closing the Loop with Enterprise Change Management Weatherford is a large global enterprise providing products and services to the oil and gas industry. The organisation is very geographically diverse and follows a design anywhere build anywhere philosophy. Building to order makes it hard to know the impact of a change, making change management particularly difficult and critical. The current Engineering Change process has been carefully designed as a result of many years of PLM and ERP experience, it makes use of some key business rules for data validation and revisions in PLM, as well as some minimal interaction and integration with ERP. The validations ensure data integrity is always good, the ERP interaction provides real time information and communication between Engineering and Supply Chain at various stages of the process. It also ensures that changes are implemented throughout the enterprise, closing the loop between design, manufacturing and inventory management, providing True Enterprise change. Lewis Lawrence

The History and Future of Wearable Computing and Virtual Experience Miniature electronics and global supply chains have us on the cusp of a new era of human experience. Early forms of wearable computing focused on augmenting the human ability to compute freely. As pioneer Steve Mann and calm technology pioneer Mark Weiser wanted, “to free the human to not act as a machine”. What does this mean for us as designers and developers, and how can we build interfaces for the next generation of devices? Who was here before us, and how can we best learn from them? These are the machines that will be a part of our lives in only a few years from now, and the best way to learn about the future is to dig into the past. This talk will focus on trends in wearable computing and VR as it developed from the 1960s to now, and then into the future. This talk will cover various topics on the history and future of wearables. We'll learn about Ivan Sutherland, human augmentation, infrastructure, machine vision, processing, distributed computing and wireless data transfer, a church dedicated to VR, computer backpacks, heads up displays, reality editing, job simulators and unexplored realms of experience that haven't yet come to life. We'll also learn about the road from virtual reality to augmented reality and what we need to build to get there. This talk is for anyone interested in how we can add a new layer of interactivity to our world and how we can take the next steps to get there. Amber Case

Blockchain Technology: Paradigm Shift or Pixie Dust: Separating The Hype From the True Potential In the past several years, Blockchain Technology has moved from something that – if spoken of at all – was relegated to conversations about bitcoin. Now, Blockchain is a dominant conversation topic, not only around finance, but as it relates to the arts, music business, real estate, and many other sectors.< The reasons for this increased level of discourse are many, but relate to three key components of Blockchain Technology: - It is a distributed ledger - Because of the distributed nature of the ledger, it is immutable, and accessible to all - A core component of Blockchain technology is the concept of Smart Contracts, which allow for transactions to occur at scale and without intermediaries Still, confusion around the plausibility and relevance of Blockchain Technology remain; with some viewing it as a panacea and others viewing it as without merit. Over the past year, I have authored dozens of articles on Blockchain Technology, conducted dozens of interviews with key thought leaders in the Blockchain Tech space, spoken at dozens of events on Blockchain Tech, and consulted with numerous companies and entrepreneurs in this space. This session will consolidate my findings and offer recommendations with respect to the future of Blockchain Tech, how to benefit from it, and how to separate the hype from the actual promise.

Internet of Sieves: Data Loss Prevention in the Age of IoT Enterprise-wise, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) has often been a means of "keeping honest people from doing dumb things". However, the advent of the Internet of Things and its rapid proliferation is straining the effectiveness of DLP. Sophisticated, embedded devices are permeating enterprise and home networks. Attack surfaces and data exfiltration opportunities are increasing in lockstep. The shortcomings of IoT security have been well covered, but there has been very little discussion on how to instrument and monitor the channels used by IoT devices in an effort to prevent data loss. In this talk, we will point out some of the possibilities for data exfiltration in various IoT products and the current (and possibly future) state of the art in defending against this problem.

USAF/ARMY – “Increase Readiness, Improve Warfighter Support” through Agile, Integrated Mission Planning The U.S. Department of Defense operates the most complex global supply chains in the world. The USAF is highly respected for managing one of the most complex supply chains with over 5,000 aircraft, 650,000 items, and supports weapon systems in 1,500 locations across a global theatre of operations. PTC Service Parts Management SaaS will enable the USAF to improve demand forecast accuracy, reduce planning workload, implement comprehensive supply planning with supportability, achieve near real-time supply chain metrics, improve logistics cost estimation and optimize aircraft availability by location. The U.S. Army established the Transforming Army Supply Chains (TASC) project to investigate the nature, causes, and consequences of demand uncertainty and supply variability. TASC identified and tested several catalysts for innovation, including mission-based forecasting (MBF), a new concept to support demand planning for military operations. MBF capitalizes on big data, the Internet of Things (IOT), and predictive analytics for condition-based maintenance (CBM). CBM extends predictive maintenance concepts through the use of sensors, Internet connectivity, and digital analytics to determine the remaining useful life of items and ensure replacement as needed prior to executing a particular mission. MBF testing has resulted in substantial reductions in forecast error, inventory savings of billions of dollars, and elimination of costly work-arounds. Greg Parlier

e.GO Life: Outcome-based Design for electric cars Electric cars that are fun, practical and affordable – e.GO Mobile takes a radically new approach to design, validate and produce lightweight e-cars for everyday use. Uncompromising cost efficiency and maximum flexibility are key to success in this highly competitive and fast-changing market. The traditional OEM-Supplier approach has been replaced with a collaborative research and engineering partner network. The agile product engineering process is characterized by small and fast iterations to get immediate feedback from prototype users. Rather than wasting time and effort by managing copious amounts of requirements and textual specification documents which quickly become outdated, a model-based system design allows for early system behavior validation through simulation, automatic generation of all necessary software elements for system connectivity and prototype-in-the-loop validation for constant improvement of critical performance parameters such as the e-car’s range. This session explains and demonstrates these techniques with PTC’s model-based systems engineering capabilities in combination with Thingworx as IoT platform. Christoph Johannes Braeuchle

Automation of Order-to-Cash Process in Oil and Gas Water Management Services Around 20 billions barrels of water are produced every year onshore US from more than 1.5 millions oil and gas wells. This water is stored in tanks, requiring about 100 million truck rotations to recycle it. Each rotation involves a full Order-to-Cash process including a Service Request, a Field ticket, an Invoice and a Payment between the water hauler and the producer. This largely manual, paper-based process is hugely inefficient and costly at at a time when the industry is in great need of efficiency through automation. We will discuss how IoT on water tanks combined with a central integration B2B cloud platform can save money and optimize operations. Jean-pierre Foehn
