Edge-based video analytics will transform IoT to create new applications and business opportunities. Gorilla’s partnership with Intel and development of edge AI computer vision, utilizing Intel’s OpenVINO™ optimization - combined with Movidius and FPGA hardware, has seen vast efficiency and performance improvements on Atom, Core and Xeon based devices. Till now, most video analytics platforms have focused on government and commercial projects, and settings such as smart cities, offices and retail. There is still a huge area for innovation and development in ‘every day spaces’ to improve on things like unmanned transportation stations, work sites, factories, automobile, healthcare, home security and energy savings. More innovative use cases will come with better video analytics and business insights. It is apparent that continuing to develop and improve processing unstructured data analysis, such as video analytics on edge devices, will send the IoT market to the next level by presenting high-value and innovative applications and contributions to the entire tech ecosystem.Speaker(s):
Mainflux is an open source, Apache 2.0 licensed, high performance and scalable IoT middleware platform. Mainflux is designed to handle and process data coming out of your IoT devices, edge gateways, LoRa gateways and deployments. Mainflux is developed using the microservices architecture and Go programming language. Due to its design and technology choices, Mainflux can be deployed on gateway type devices on a single server or scaled using Kubernetes to multidata center systems. Mainflux is cloud-agnostic and can be set up on any public or private cloud.
This session will cover the main features of the Mainflux IoT platform and show how to create a fully featured IoT solution using Mainflux.
We will explain:
Computer vision has always become the most popular field of AI application. However, industry clients have been facing problems, such as not able to find suitable algorithms in the market or differentiate the quality of algorithms. This session will analyze the current situation of computer vision technology and how to use Intel acceleration toolkit to improve the effect of algorithm application.Speaker(s):

With insights from sensors and smart devices, physical stores are now able to challenge the established ways of doing business, offering more tailored experiences and incorporating digital elements into the shoppers’ journey. Digital transformation in the retail business answers the demands of customers by creating a new concept of connected stores to bring interactive and customized shopping experiences. This shift is crucial for bricks and mortar shops in order to address the synergies between the digital and physical worlds. Retailers can now leverage real time data that allows the prediction of customer trends in physical stores. Access to this data helps improve the shopping experience, by making use of available technological solutions, along with the efficiency and sales.Speaker(s):
While Industry 4.0 (14.0) is adopted by the global players with a high pace, there is a risk that the SMEs – the backbone for industrial innovations – would be left behind. In Germany, SMEs are responsible for 97% of all exports and make for 1300 of the worldwide hidden champions. Unfortunately, most of the available I4.0 solution does not match the SME requirements, such as independence of specific vendors, moderate deployment costs and data sovereignty. To solve this problem, the Industry Business Network 4.0 (IBN 4.0) created a joint SME-ready solution based on open components. This talk will present the requirements, architecture and current state of the implementation of IndustryFusion and will detail about StarlingX and the Open IoT Service Platform. The session is presented by Konstantin Kernschmidt (Project Lead, IBN 4.0), Martin Mohring (CTO of 5e EcoSystems) and Marcel Wagner (Software ecosystem enabler, Intel).Speaker(s):
The holy grail of the IoT is the ability to easily distribute the intelligence of your application across cloud and the edge. Being able to run analytics, AI or store data at the edge addresses many common and key enterprise IoT scenarios. Learn how to easily create deployments for IoT devices that include AI, machine learning, stream analytics, as well as your own custom code on devices smaller than a Raspberry Pi.Speaker(s):
