  • Packaging Software at the Edge + Digital Twins

    Hacker Dojo, Large Event Room

    Your First and Last name, email and company name are REQUIRED for this meetup, so please proceed to RSVP at EVENTBRITE.COM (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sv-meetup-packaging-software-at-the-edge-and-digital-twins-registration-35452111219). Agenda: 6:00 - Doors open. Networking. Members meet each other. 6:20 - Welcome. Members to share topics of interests for future meetings. 6:30 - Talk #1. Digital Twin Robert Benson (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rbensonpaloalto/), Director of Marketing for Mitek Analytics will present a brief overview of the concept of Digital Twin and describe several of the research implementations of Digital Twin that Mitek Analytics has developed for the Air Force and NASA under federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts. Digital Twin is a concept that has been in existence for about 10 years which has gotten more visibility in the last few years as GE Digital has been promoting the concept as a centerpiece of its efforts to deliver value via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Gartner has included Digital Twin on its Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017 list. Gartner’s definition of Digital Twin starts as follows: “A digital twin is a dynamic software model of a physical thing or system that relies on sensor data to understand its state, respond to changes, improve operations and add value.” The talk can be tailored to target audiences ranging from unfamiliar with Digital Twin and IIoT to those familiar with Digital Twin and IIoT. 7:00 - Q&A break. 7:10 -Talk #2. Packaging Software at the Edge Overview: In the Asset Performance Management space, we need to supply an edge to cloud solve that resides in both on-premise and in the cloud. Our current edge solutions are relatively simplistic, and consists of transmitting time series data into the cloud for further processing. As our technologies mature along with our customers’ needs, we’re finding that we need to grasp a more fog computing-based approach where we include more intelligence, more computing power, at the edge. Along with this computative power, we need to better remotely manage these systems – to be able to monitor progress and diagnose problems. This functionality would also include managing software updates and their deployments. We found that Windows Docker seemed to fit the bill -- much of the technologies that live at our edge solutions are Windows OS based (as the customers’ main platforms are Windows OS based). I would like to review the approach that we took to replackage one of our main APM on-premise solutions using Windows Docker. Some of the pros and cons of the approach. As well as a live demo of the system running on my laptop (will use a virtual machine to simulate). Bio: With over 25 years of experience in the computing industry, Peter (https://www.linkedin.com/in/peterngai/) currently works for GE Digital in San Ramon, California as a Software Architect. He was born and raised in New York City, and is a graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology located in Rochester, NY.
