The Industrial Internet is going to transform the industry by making industrial machines more intelligent and enabling services using real-time data coming from sensors and machines. The intelligent machines will be able to take actions based on insights generated from real-time data and analytics. This requires connectivity and interoperability across machines, fleets, plants, and cloud-based systems. The industrial communication standards will play an important role in providing seamless connectivity and integration between heterogeneous systems.

In this session we will discuss GE’s vision of the Industrial Internet and intelligent machines, as well as how to make them a reality. The presentation will cover the importance of real-time analysis of large volumes of data to optimize processes, improve efficiencies, and reduce costs. It will include use cases across vertical industries and a demo of running real-time analytics of an edge device.
