Industry Forum is an IES program for Industry to engage with research in a productive manner. Industry speakers are invited to discuss industry, technology directions, and, most importantly, challenges for the companies. We want all conference attendees to engage in the Industry Forum and listen to the presentations of our industry speakers so all communities can benefit.
Industry Forum Sessions
Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and its applications to Robotics and Automation
Practical applications of Artificial Intelligence have been increasingly demonstrated the last years especially in the domain of intelligent and autonomous cyber-physical systems. Especially in robotics applications for both industry and consumers, the advances bring us closer than ever to the machine intelligence visions. The aim of this session is to present, demonstrate and discuss key advances in AI and its specific industrial applications in robotics and automation.
Session 2: 5G and Smart-X applications
New communication paradigms such as 5G are becoming a reality. The new capabilities 5G introduction at scale brings such as Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), have the potential to empower a new generation of IoT relevant applications and services, collectively referred to as smart-x e.g. smart cities, smart grid, smart health etc. However, for 5G to succeed, key issues such as infrastructure setup, security, safety, privacy, full-integration of its capabilities to new applications, etc. need to be realized. This session aims at providing a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that 5G brings.
