Revolutionizing IoT with Machine Learning at the Edge | Perceive's Steve Teig
In episode 88 of the IoT For All Podcast, Perceive Founder and CEO Steve Teig joins us to talk about how Perceive is bringing the next wave of intelligence to IoT through machine learning at the edge. Steve shares how Perceive developed Ergo, their chip announced back in March, and how these new machine learning capabilities will transform consumer IoT.Steve Teig is an award-winning technologist, entrepreneur, and inventor on 388 US patents. He’s been the CTO of three EDA software companies, two biotech companies, and a semiconductor company - of these, two went public during his tenure, two were acquired, and one is a Fortune 500 company. As the CEO and Founder of Perceive, Steve is leading a team building solutions and transformative machine learning technology for consumer edge devices.To start the episode, Steve gave us some background on how Perceive got started. While serving as CTO of Xperi, Steve worked with a wide array of imaging and audio products and saw an opportunity in making the edge smart by leveraging machine learning at the edge. “What if you could make gadgets themselves intelligent?” Steve asked, “that’s what motivated me to pursue it technically and then commercially with Perceive.”At its core, Perceive builds chips and machine learning software for edge inference, providing data center class accuracy at the low power that edge devices, like IoT, require. “The kinds of applications we go after,” Steve said, “are from doorbell cameras to home security cameras, to toys, to phones - wherever you have a sensor, it would be cool to make that sensor understand its environment without sending data to the cloud.”Of the current solutions for device intelligence, Steve said you have two options and neither of them are ideal: first, you can send all of the data your sensor collects to someone else’s cloud, giving up your privacy; or second, you can have a tiny chip that, while low power enough for your device, doesn’t provide the computing power to provide answers you can actually trust.“We fix that problem by providing the kind of sophistication you would expect from the big cloud providers, but low enough power that you can run it at the edge,” Steve said, saying that their chip is 20 to 100 times more power efficient than anything else currently in the market.Steve also spoke to some of the use cases that Ergo enables. Currently, the main applications are doorbell cameras, home security cameras, and appliances. “As we look forward,” Steve said, “being able to put really serious contextual awareness into gadgets opens up all kinds of applications.” One of the examples he gave was a microwave that could identify both the user and the food to be heated, and adjust its settings to match that user’s preferences. Another example would be a robot vacuum cleaner that you could ask to find your shoes.Changing gears, Steve shared Perceive’s philosophy on machine learning, saying that - because they were looking to make massive improvements - they had to start fresh. “We had to start with the math. We really started from first principles.” That philosophy has led to a number of new and proprietary techniques, both on the software and hardware side.Moving more into the industry at large, Steve shared some of observations in the smart home space during the pandemic. Those observations highlighted two somewhat conflicting viewpoints - while there has been a broader interest in smart home technology, with people spending more time at home, people have also become more sensitive about their privacy. Steve also shared how Ergo handles data, in order to meet these security and privacy concerns.To close out the episode, Steve shared some of the challenges his team faced while developing Ergo and what those challenges meant as he built out the team itself. He also shared some of his thoughts on the future of the smart home and consumer IoT space, with the introduction of these new machine learning capabilities.Interested in connecting with Steve? Reach out to him on Linkedin!About Perceive: Steve Teig, founder and CEO of Perceive, drove the creation of the company in 2018 while CTO of its parent company and investor, Xperi. Launching Perceive, Steve and his team had the ambitious goal of enabling state-of-the-art inference inside edge devices running at extremely low power. Adopting an entirely new perspective on machine learning and neural networks allowed Steve and his team to very quickly build and deploy the software, tools, and inference processor -- Ergo -- that make the complete Perceive solution.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(00:50) Intro to Steve(01:25) How did you come to found Perceive?(02:30) What does Perceive do? What’s your role in the IoT space?(03:37) What makes your offering unique to the market?(04:49) Could you share any use cases?(09:41) How would you describe your philosophy when it comes to machine learning?(11:37) What is Ergo and what does it do?(12:39) What does a typical customer engagement look like?(14:57) Have you seen any change in demand due to the pandemic?(20:47) What challenges have you encountered building Perceive and Ergo?(22:24) Where do you see the market going for smart home devices?

Managing and Protecting Data for IoT | Veeam's Rick Vanover
In episodes 87 of the IoT For All Podcast, we sit down with Rick Vanover, Senior Director of Product Strategy at Veeam as he shares some insight into data management and protection in IoT.Rick Vanover is the Director of Technical Product Marketing & Evangelism at Veeam Software. His experience includes system administration and IT management; with virtualization being the central theme of his career. To start the episode, Rick gave us a bit of background on Veeam. Veeam is a leader in backup solutions that deliver cloud data management; it provides a single platform for modernizing backups, accelerating hybrid cloud, and securing data.Rick also shared that, for most companies, the management and protection of data tends to be a huge oversight. Besides compliance or performance measurements, data backup can be vital to operations. “If you’ve ever deployed an IoT solution, you know that if something goes wrong, it could put the whole ROI in jeopardy.” Rick said, “and the data can be the saving grace there.” He referred specifically to log files, which can give a clue into what has happened with a solution or a piece of machinery and give key insights into what went wrong.For many companies, Rick said you have to start by looking at the data and determining where it is, and what needs to be kept. “Think of an IoT solution you have in your organization, where is the data lake, where is the data you care about - how do we protect it, how do we manage it, do you even have visibility into it?”Changing gears, Rick spoke to some of his typical customer engagements. Most customers, he said, come to Veeam with a solution that’s already been built and a clear purpose in why the data needs to be kept - often compliance issues or to troubleshoot. “It becomes a laser-focused discussion on where’s the data that matters and how do we protect it,” Rick said. But the outcomes are best when they get to be involved in the earlier processes - thinking about data before the solution has been built or deployed. Ultimately, though, Rick said that Veeam is there when companies need them, regardless of the stage of the project. “The reality is, we have the opportunity to come in and be the hero and provide the tools that scrape up even the minimum amount of data to keep it protected.”One of the biggest challenges associated with backing up data for IoT is how custom the solutions are. “Veeam software can deploy very consistently to very different environments, but the opposite is true in the IoT space,” Rick said, “there’s very few consistent deployments - it’s a very fragmented industry with a lot of home-grown solutions.” That means sometimes implementing some extra steps to both find and backup data.To close out the podcast, Rick shared his advice for companies building IoT solutions - what to think about when they’re considering what data to back up and how, as well as some of the considerations they should take into account when deciding between cloud and edge computing, in relation to their data storage and management.Interested in connecting with Rick? Reach out to him on Linkedin!About Veeam: Veeam is a leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management. Veeam provides a single platform for modernizing backup, accelerating hybrid cloud, and securing data.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:37) Intro to Rick(03:00) Intro to Veeam(03:57) How often do you think companies aren’t thinking about the ability or need to back up and secure their data?(05:43) What does a typical customer engagement look like? At what stage do companies typically come to you?(08:46) How do you approach the unique needs of IoT solutions?(11:02) How do your customers view the importance of collecting data and engaging with data on the edge?(13:55) What’re your thoughts on 5G and the role it’s going to play in IoT?(17:25) What are the benefits of a cloud-based solution or approach in terms of long-term security?(21:58) Why is now the time to implement Cloud into your IT infrastructure or your solution?

Transitioning to the Internet of Intelligence | Zebra Technologies’ Drew Ehlers
In episode 85 of the IoT For All Podcast, we sit down with Zebra Technologies’ Drew Ehlers to talk about the shift from the Internet of Things to the Internet of Intelligence. Drew shares his experience watching IoT mature for the past two decades and some of the top considerations in adopting and scaling IoT in enterprise.Drew Ehlers serves as the Global Futurist and the Global General Manager of SmartPack™, Office of the CTO at Zebra Technologies. He oversees the integrated SmartPack™ team and is responsible for producing advanced machine-learning models and algorithms for predictive analytics to solve critical business problems for both Zebra and its partners and customers. Drew has more than 19 years of experience within the B2B technology industry and previously served as the Senior Vice President at Gallagher Bassett and Vice President of Channel for the North America region at Zebra.To start the episode, Drew gave us some background on Zebra Technologies, which has been instrumenting on the edge for the past five decades. “When it comes to IoT,” Drew said, “we’re ground zero - especially in the enterprise space.” What really sets Zebra apart is its methodology. Drew said that, in every customer interaction, they work hard to identify and clarify the problems that IoT can solve, and work backwards from there. By clearly defining a problem statement, Drew said that Zebra is in a much better position to help customers ensure ROI and really understand the value of the solutions they’re building.The current state of ecommerce, Drew said, is a great example. With people unable to shop in-person, ecommerce has exploded in the past several months and the supply chain has struggled to keep up. Drew said that, through SmartPack, companies have been able utilize trailers and planes to their greatest extent, expediting shipping and enabling real-time insights that save both labor and time by alerting crews if a trailer is being packed inefficiently.Drew also offered his thoughts on the maturity of the space overall, and how he’s seen it grow over the past twenty years. He said that, if the past twenty years have been focused on instrumentation, we’re moving onto the next layer of implementation - intelligence. From predictive measurements to prescriptive analytics, he said that intelligence would be key to unlocking the true potential of IoT.Drew also gave some advice for companies just starting their IoT journey - from really solidifying their problem statement to ensure ROI, to vital considerations on privacy and security to include in the planning process.Interested in connecting with Drew?

Considerations for Remote Monitoring with IIoT | Hark’s Jordan Appleson
In episode 84 of the IoT For All Podcast, Hark Founder and CEO Jordan Appleson shares some of the key considerations in remote monitoring and asset management in the industrial space, including the importance of partnerships and some of the obstacles companies should account for when planning their proof of concept or pilot.Jordan Appleson has spent the last ten years solving problems through software and hardware expertise. He founded Hark after seeing many pharmaceutical and life science companies using pen and paper to document and monitor the storage conditions of drugs and other perishable assets.Since its founding, Hark has been building an interconnected cloud-based sensor platform to allow users to monitor and gain insight into their environmental data in real-time. By leveraging key hardware partners, Hark has enabled factories, offices, supermarkets, and more to monitor assets, ensure compliance, and reduce energy waste.Jordan started by giving us a bit of background on Hark and how they do things differently. Jordan said that Hark’s greatest advantage is their expertise both in hardware and software - although they don’t manufacture the sensor technology themselves, anymore, their unique understanding allows them to create a truly end-to-end solution for their customers, and one that can operate with the hardware they already have.Speaking to his own expertise, Jordan also mentioned the importance of partnerships. “We don’t manufacture hardware, and we don’t use specific hardware,” Jordan said, “we work with the customer to use their existing hardware and systems.” That’s only possible, he said, through a large ecosystem of partners and businesses - each an expert in their field. “That’s very specialized knowledge and it’s very important.”He also gave a couple of examples of where their platform really shines. In the supermarket space, they do a great deal of real-time energy monitoring - from lighting, HVAC, to freezers, they’re able to gather both real-time and historic data to ensure compliance and reduce energy costs. In life sciences, Jordan said, the same technologies are used for refrigeration units, freezers and incubators. “If something goes down, there are samples and tissues that could be at stake.”But the needs have really changed since the pandemic. No company had planned for the sudden need to evacuate and no one had answers as to what to expect. “When it comes to what we do and the IoT space,” Jordan said, “we assumed that everything would go on hold. But if you look at what has happened, everyone has gone remote.” From office buildings to factories, even really mission-critical operations, have gone completely virtual. Visibility into what’s going on on-site has become exponentially more important and enabling companies to ensure that their assets are operating efficiently and reducing waste is paramount to their success right now.To close out the episode, Jordan spoke to the IoT landscape as a whole - he shared his view on the space and where it’s going and some of his best advice for companies looking to start their IoT journey, especially when it comes to ensuring ROI.Interested in connecting with Jordan? Reach out to him on Linkedin!About Hark: The Hark Platform is an interconnected cloud-based sensor platform that allows users to monitor and gain insight into their environmental data in real-time.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:21) Introduction to Jordan Appleson(02:19) What inspired you to found Hark?(04:39) Introduction to Hark(10:30) What does a typical customer engagement look like for Hark?(12:53) Are there any use cases or specific examples you can share?(15:09) Have you seen any changes as a result of COVID? Both on your business and on the industry as a whole?(18:49) How do you view the current state of IoT and where do you think it’s going?(22:18) What should the start of a company’s journey into IoT look like? How important are a pilot or POC?(26:33) Along their IoT journey, where do you see companies make the most mistakes and how can they avoid them?

How IoT will Help us Find the New Normal Post-COVID | Lenovo's John Gordon
In this episode of the IoT For All Podcast, John Gordon, President of the Commercial IoT business unit at Lenovo, joins us to talk about IoT’s role in the new normal - specifically, in enabling employees to safely return to work.John joined Lenovo in 2019 and is responsible for driving innovation across the company as a whole. He has more than 20 years of experience in strategic digital transformation and, as the former head of Consumer Electronics at Bose Corporation, he launched the world’s first audio augmented reality platform.John joined Lenovo in order to play a role in maximizing the potential of IoT, but said part of what made his role at Lenovo so attractive was the dedication to creating real-world solutions today, instead of getting stuck on what IoT can be. “Frankly,” John said, “we’re probably deployed at one percent of what IoT’s potential really is.”Lenovo takes a different approach to creating solutions in the IoT space. Rather than building custom solutions, Lenovo empowers companies to scale using existing components and solutions. “If you get it from Lenovo, the whole thing is turnkey - we validate the whole thing, we install it for you, and we monitor it to make sure it’s working. You don’t have to go through and piece stuff together yourself,” John said.John said that, before COVID, their focus was on optimizing the number of people that companies could get into a workspace. But now, the challenge is bringing people back in safely. John said that, as technologists, their role was creating a framework that would enable companies to improve the safety for returning employees.Phase 1 - How do you control who gets into the building? John said that this could mean measuring and monitoring the temperatures of people entering the workspace or ensuring that the space remains at a safe capacity.Phase 2 - How do you manage behavior once they’re in the space? That could mean encouraging employees to maintain safe social distancing practices and wash their hands.Phase 3 - When there’s an incident, how do you respond? “No one was planning to do this,” John said, “the timing of when all of this stuff happens, it has to happen pretty quickly.”John also spoke to the ROI companies hope to achieve through the use of these solutions. For some, the ROI is pretty clear - many manufacturers can’t operate without people in the building. So anything that gets them up and running again is going to be worth the investment.But for other companies, they can save on cost and improve the morale of their employees by automating processes that previously required employees’ dedicated attention. Jobs like standing at the door of a retail store and counting the people going in and out or security guards who monitor spaces to ensure that employees are far enough apart. “That’s the kind of crappy job that has to be done,” John said, “but is perfect for technology.”Changing gears, John spoke to us about a survey that Lenovo conducted on the return to work for many employees in North America. One of the key findings was that 88 percent of employees expected employers to make the workplace safe using technology.John spoke to the opportunity that this meant for IoT. “This is our opportunity to help our colleagues, our customers, and our families make the world a bit safer.” And in proving that we can roll out IoT at scale, John said that we get closer to the other life-changing innovations IoT has promised for so many years.To close out the interview, John shared with us some of the challenges he sees companies face as they begin to return to work. And his biggest piece of advice for companies looking to adjust to the new normal: start now.Interested in connecting with John? Reach out to him on Linkedin!About Lenovo: Lenovo recently announced IoT solutions for businesses returning to work after the coronavirus pandemic – ThinkIoT Back to Work Solutions. Lenovo has assembled an ecosystem of IoT solutions to help make it easier for customers to get back to work in offices without dealing with the hassle traditionally encountered in IoT projects. To that extent, Lenovo validates, deploys, and manages these end-to-end solutions globally in a set of turnkey offerings, especially important for large businesses with distributed locations. These are the first solutions from Lenovo’s Commercial Internet of Things Business Group, established in 2019 to help drive the company’s service-led transformation.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:02) Introduction to John(03:09) Introduction to Lenovo(04:57) What does a typical customer engagement look like for your team?(08:25) What are some specific use cases in the smart building and retail spaces, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic?(10:19) How does the development process for solutions like these work?(11:58) How are companies measuring the ROI of these projects, since it’s all so new?(14:32) What shifts have you seen in companies’ focus as far as IoT projects go post-COVID?(16:36) Can you speak to the survey Lenovo conducted recently?(20:48) What are some of the biggest changes companies are going to have to make to adjust to this new normal?(22:02) What advice do you have for organizations realizing that they need to get started on their digital transformation? What mistakes can they avoid?(25:14) What are the biggest contributors to widespread IoT adoption, in your opinion? Where should our focus be?(28:38) What are you the most excited about going into next year?

How IoT is Revolutionizing Maritime Shipping | Canscan Tech’s Jennifer Ivens
In episode 82 of the IoT For All Podcast, Jennifer Ivens, CEO and Founder of Canscan, joins us to talk about the transformative power of IoT in the supply chain. She shares some background on how Canscan is helping companies automate the inspection process using machine learning and IoT, as well as some of the challenges of working in the maritime shipping space.Jennifer Ivens worked for several years as an analyst for one of the largest ocean carriers in the world. After seeing the problems in tracking and tracing shipping containers, she founded Canscan to utilize leading edge technologies in solving these issues. In 2019, Jennifer won the “Best of Fest” as well as the “Best Onstage Pitch” from the Montreal StartupFest, the first woman to do so.To start, Jennifer gave us some background on the industry as it currently is, including the scale. 80 percent of everything we buy, Jennifer said, travels in a shipping container either from manufacturing to warehousing or on its way to distribution centers. These containers are difficult to track, often traveling between ships, trains and trucks on their way to their destination, and it can be difficult to determine their condition.Often, as these containers arrive at ports, a dedicated employee must stand at the dock and count containers, as well as record any damage to them, even when environmental conditions are particularly inhabitable. These inspections include climbing on top of containers and viewing them from all sides to record any holes, damage, or missing locks. Not only is it costly and time-consuming, it’s tedious for employees and highly prone to human error.Canscan tackles this problem by leveraging existing cameras, like security cameras, on-site and applying machine vision algorithms to identify damage or missing locks and dispatching an employee to examine and report the damage. “After two years of accumulated data and experience, our AI is operating above the abilities of a human being,” Jennifer said.To round out the episode, Jennifer shared some of the challenges working with an industry that has historically been slow to adopt new technology, some of the key drivers for adoption in the space, and some exciting news on the horizon for Canscan.Interested in connecting with Jennifer? Reach out to her on Linkedin!About Canscan: Canscan has developed a system, based on artificial intelligence, machine vision and data analytics that uses existing cameras and infrastructure to automatically inspect containers transiting into or through a terminal. Our system will automatically clear containers that are fully compliant and can be safely fast-tracked, whilst isolating non-compliant ones that require your full attention.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:07) Intro to Jennifer(01:50) Intro to CANSCAN(07:14) What are some of the unique challenges that come with maritime shipping?(09:57) What’s your role in the IoT space?(12:24) Have you found the industry to be slow to change?

The Value of Data Democratization in Manufacturing | MachineMetric's Graham Immerman
In episode 81 of the IoT For All Podcast, VP of Marketing for MachineMetrics Graham Immerman joins us to talk about data democratization and its role in manufacturing. He shares how companies are using data to improve ROI and some of the trends he’s seen in the IoT space, where data is concerned.Graham joined the marketing industry as the digitization of the field began and was excited to take part in the evolution of the manufacturing industry. He quickly became an authority on digital transformation and the application of IIoT technology for the manufacturing industry and is an accomplished leader and start-up veteran with extensive experience in marketing, growth strategy, and business development.To start the episode, Graham introduced us to MachineMetrics, a company that is accelerating industrial digital transformation by providing a platform to collect data from any piece of manufacturing equipment and transform it into actionable applications to reduce downtime, optimize capacity and drive increased throughput and profitability for factories.Companies that come to MachineMetrics, Graham said, come in various stages of their buyer journey. Some have no idea what the capacity of their machines are, or know where there are problems and are looking for greater transparency to solve them. But even for companies that think they know how their machinery is operating, Graham said that they’re often a little off. “The most prevalent surveys in the industry say that manufacturers are operating closer to 75-80% of their capacity and machine utilization. But MachineMetrics can tell you, because we’re connected to thousands of machines across the world, that that number is closer to 25%.”That’s where MachineMetrics can help. One of the most common use cases Graham said they tackle is merely helping companies understand what’s going on in their manufacturing processes and figuring out accurate measures of the cost of manufacturing parts. “The objective,” Graham said, “is to make more parts better, faster, and for less. Being able to see when that’s not going to happen, or when it’s failing in real-time is essential. You can recalibrate your expectations.”Or, in some cases, a better understanding of machine capabilities and capacity can lead to huge cost savings. Graham said that one company he worked with had just placed an order for $14 million worth of equipment, but when they realized that their existing equipment was only at 22 percent capacity, they were able to cancel that order and focus on the processes instead.What MachineMetrics really focuses on is data democratization. “The value of data can not be understated,” Graham said, “especially in our current times.” The goal of data democratization is to enable anyone to use data to make better, more informed decisions, without barriers to access or understand what that data means.One of the top challenges facing data democratization is the existing structure, the way data is stored and consumed, means that it’s often in silos. Gathered and accessed by IT departments, traditionally, when it could readily benefit marketing, operations, and supply chain as well.“That data,” Graham said, “is now made not just available, but consumable. And the value of data democratization is not just opening a data lake - it’s transforming that data into usable models.”To close out the conversation, Graham shared some of the challenges that come with data democratization and how that and automation will affect the labor force long-term. He also shared his views on the current state of IoT, some of the trends he’s been seeing, specific to manufacturing, and some of his advice for companies looking to start their IoT journey.Interested in connecting with Graham Immerman? Reach out to him on Linkedin!About MachineMetrics: MachineMetrics is accelerating industrial digital transformation by providing an intuitive and flexible platform to easily collect data from any piece of manufacturing equipment machinery and transform it into powerful, actionable applications that reduce machine downtime, optimize capacity, and drive increased throughput and profitability for factories.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:07) Introduction to Graham(02:26) Introduction to MachineMetrics(05:00) What does the typical customer engagement look like?(11:05) Can you share any use cases?(15:11) What is data democratization and how is it driving new business and increasing revenue for organizations?(21:53) What challenges come with this trend toward data democratization?(28:03) What do you believe is the current state of IoT?

Best Practices in Developing Pilots for IIoT | IIC's Jacques Durand and Bassam Zarkout
In this episode of the IoT For All podcast, Bassam Zarkout and Jacques Durand join us to talk about the Industrial Internet Consortium and share some of the recent findings in their Enabling Digital Transformation with IoT Performance and Properties Measurement white paper. They speak to some of the differences between developing IoT for industrial and consumer products, the role that standards play in the IoT ecosystem, and the importance of defining and redefining measurements and metrics throughout the stages of IoT development.Between them, Jacques and Bassam have more than fifty years of experience in technology, from software engineering to executive C-positions across Canada, the United States, and Europe. To start the episode, Jacque and Bassam gave a quick background on the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The IIC is a global, membership-based organization whose focus is to accelerate the adoption of the industrial internet. Members belong to a variety of companies in the ecosystem and all focus on developing best practices and architecture guidelines for the industry.To develop and design these best practices, like the ones found in the whitepaper the IIC published back in May, the IIC developed thirty test beds - mostly to replicate manufacturing conditions and processes - to test and examine the importance of metrics and measurements in different stages of IoT development.One of the most surprising findings, according to Jacques, was the importance of partnerships. No company, he said, can develop an IoT system or project on their own and that’s a big part of the value of organizations like IIC. Access to an ecosystem of partners can be vital to the long-term success of an IoT deployment.Jacque and Bassam also shared some of the differences in approach between industrial and consumer IoT. For industrial, they said, it’s vital to understand the existing processes and architecture and to figure out how to work within those frameworks to create something that doesn’t disrupt legacy processes. And, Bassam said, safety is a huge consideration. Industrial IoT implementations naturally present a higher risk than most consumer deployments.And in terms of technology, Jacque and Bassam said that the technology connecting the digital and physical spaces are much more diverse in industrial ecosystems. That diversity comes from a need to integrate with legacy systems. “You don’t really have to add sensors to an old fridge, with consumers,” he said, “you just get a new fridge.”To wrap up the podcast, Jacques and Bassam spoke to the role of standards within the IoT ecosystem - why they’re important and what purpose they really serve. As well as giving some advice for audience members looking to start their digital transformation - including how to ensure efficient and effective communication between the people on the ground and upper management.Interested in connecting with Bassam and Jacques?About the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC): The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the industrial internet by identifying, assembling, testing and promoting best practices. Members work collaboratively to speed the commercial use of advanced technologies. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations.Key Questions and Topics from this Episode:(01:19) Intro to Basam and Jacques(04:04) Intro to the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)(05:40) Are there specific use cases or industries you’re focused on for these test beds?(06:20) Were you able to find any surprising or new best practices?(09:54) How is the approach to solution development different between industrial and consumer IoT?(12:08) What differences are you seeing in the technology stacks in enterprise and industrial IoT versus consumer?(14:39) How do standards play into the overall strategy of building into an existing infrastructure?(17:14) How does IIC look at the different standards that are out there and determine which ones to focus on and utilize?(20:01) What advice do you have for audience members who are looking to start their journey in digital transformation?(23:32) How often do you see confusion or contradicting views between the people on the ground versus upper management? In terms of what is needed and what the organization on the whole is trying to accomplish?(29:03) What advice do you have for companies looking to get started, in terms of building partnerships?
