    Please NOTE: you should register here to get your unique GoToWebinar link: http://paas.ly/2rR50gx Integrating AI into IoT networks is becoming a prerequisite for success in today’s data-driven digital ecosystems. The only way to keep up with IoT-generated data and gain the hidden insights it holds is using AI as the catalyst of IoT. Join this webinar to understand how IoT and AI may work together. Overview Businesses across the world are rapidly leveraging the Internet of Things to create new products and services that are opening up new business opportunities and creating new business models. The resulting transformation is ushering in a new era of how companies run their operations and engage with customers. However, tapping into the IoT is only part of the story. To realize the full potential of IoT enablement, companies need to combine IoT with rapidly-advancing Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. Such technologies enable ‘smart machines’ to simulate intelligent behavior and make well-informed decisions with little or no human intervention. By applying the analytic capabilities of AI to data collected by IoT, companies can identify and understand patterns and make more informed decisions. This leads to a variety of benefits for both consumers and companies—such as proactive intervention, intelligent automation, and highly personalized experiences. It also enables us to find ways for connected devices to work better together and make these systems easier to use. Why attend the webinar • Understand the potential that IoT and AI may bring together • Find out the key benefits of using AI in IoT-generated data analysis • Discover what we need to improve to harvest the full benefits of IoT data • Explore the key challenges facing AI in IoT Who should join the webinar This webinar will be of interest to data scientists and those who would like to understand how to analyze terabytes of IoT data effectively with the help of Artificial Intelligence.

  • A Secure Model of IoT Using Blockchain - Online event
    PLEASE REGISTER HERE TO GET YOUR UNIQUE GOTOWEBINAR LINK: http://bit.ly/2mIFg2I IoT applications and devices is the next wave of technology, but security is a big concern. This webinar will explain the convergence of IoT and Blockchain technology. Overview As the Internet of Things (IoT) adds more and more devices to the digital fold every day, organizations of all sizes are recognizing the IoT’s potential to improve business processes and, ultimately, accelerate growth. Meanwhile, the number and variety of IoT solutions has expanded exponentially, creating real challenges. Chief among them: the urgent need for a secure IoT model for performing common tasks such as sensing, processing, storing information, and communicating. But developing such a model involves overcoming numerous hurdles. Of course, there are multiple ways of looking at the IoT. For instance, the system view divides the IoT into blocks, such as connected things, gateways, network services, and cloud services, while the business view consists of platform, connectivity, business model, and applications. But one common thread connects all these views: security is paramount. You will learn: *Why and how to use the blockchain model to secure IoT *Key benefits of using blockchain for IoT *Challenges of blockchain in IoT Who should attend? *C-level executives and technology evaluators who want to understand blockchain and IoT *Managers of IT, Innovation and Digital Officers, Business Development Managers, and business people interested in blockchain adoption *Information architects, Security officers About the Presenter Ahmed Banafa (http://bit.ly/2maHEMP)has extensive experience in research, operations and management, with focus on IoT area.
