A Self-Optimizing IoT at Scale

Room: N-121 | Time: 1:30pm - 2:20pm

We don't just want things connected. We want them to be context aware and self-optimizing at the system level--optimized globally, not locally. That's not too hard when we're talking about the IoT in your house. It's much more complicated when we're discussing the IoT in an international airline network, a global supply chain, a nationwide rail network, or a regional healthcare system.

Using real-world example from GE's Industrial Internet, I'll discuss challenges and opportunities around creating a commercial and industrial IoT and making it self-optimizing.
