McKinsey Global Institute partner Michael Chui will present findings from a new, comprehensive research report that analyzes where and how value can be created through IoT. Over 150 use cases were studied in various settings (e.g., human, home, city, factory), mapping the value potential in regions around the globe. We will also describe groundbreaking research on the value of interoperability. Read more.

Typical IoT applications must “do what the user expects” based on contextual data, instead of direct commands from users. These constraints mean that IoT designs are only powerful and intuitive to the extent that their data architectures are capable of expressing user intent. Drawing on experience at Jawbone and Metta, this talk shares principles for building intention-based data architectures. Read more.

The 20-teens will be defined as the years when we gave over control of the world's systems to the machines. Elon Musk has described this as the greatest existential threat to humankind, but we all recognize the tremendous opportunities afforded by this change. In this session, The Data Guild's Cameron Turner will walk through several approaches to getting the most from your IoT data sources. Read more.

IoT data is best collected and analyzed through the full lifecycle–from prototyping and manufacturing through usage and RMA. Adding data analytics to the stack is challenging for IoT companies, who are already spread thin between hardware, firmware, mobile, and web apps. I'll discuss diverse tools and case studies for tracking the IoT lifecycle. Read more.

In 1859, a coronal mass ejection erupted from the sun and, just 17 hours later, hit the earth’s magnetosphere, allowing some telegraphs to transmit messages even after being unplugged. If a geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) of this magnitude occurred today, the US alone would face up to $3 trillion in damages. Fortunately, we now have the data and ability to identify and explain anomalous behavior. Read more.
