Slow and steady development is accelerating – Interview with Stijn Grove, Dutch Datacenter Association

Stijn Grove, CEO Dutch Datacenter Association is giving on June 8 his keynote speaker speech during the 7th edition of the Internet of Things Event at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Here he gives an impression what it will be about.

“The possibilities and chances of the Internet of Things are by far greater than most people can imagine,” according to Stijn Grove, managing director of the Dutch Datacenter Association (DDA). “In the past years more and more electronic equipment got connected, that is what started Internet of Things to grow. For instance, the once so much used mobile phone has become a smartphone with an app for calling someone. But the device itself offers far more possibilities with many different apps that can be used for a great number of different things. These developments are going faster and faster nowadays and offer a host of possibilities and challenges.” Continue reading “Slow and steady development is accelerating – Interview with Stijn Grove, Dutch Datacenter Association”

Trustworthy IoT for Industrial Applications – Presented by Mario Drobics, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

IoT can be a major driver for the digitalization of industrial environments. When applying IoT technologies in such environments (factories, energy networks, traffic, etc.), specific requirements regarding safety & security, reliability, and resilience have to be addressed. These requirements have to be considered along the whole product life cycle, i.e. from the specification and design of the product, along the production process, and during the actual usage of the products. In this talk, we will give an overview on these challenges and present results from different European research projects addressing these challenges.

IOT behind the scenes – Presented by Ed Zalmstra, MRV Communications BV at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

How can (IOT) applications and data transport in general be handled in such a way that up time and availability is “guaranteed” on the highest level. One of the way to organize that is through multi data center technology aka Optical technology. In the presentation it will be presented what the added value of this technology is.

“How to make an IoT solution come true?” – Presented by Peter Simkens, DSP Valley at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

In order to make an IoT solution come true, a lot of different competencies and technologies are needed. From a technology point of view, IoT solutions become possible thanks to Moore’s law for semiconductor technology, bringing miniaturisation, low cost volume production, low energy consumption and compute performance. From a value chain point of view, the semiconductor technology needs to be applied tot he embedded sensor nodes, and to be combined with other disciplines including wireless broadcasting, app development, smart data analysis and cloud technologies. This introductory presentation will highlight some technology evolutions and trends, as well as the need for partnering in an ecosystem context.

About Peter Simkens
Dr. Peter Simkens holds a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering (1984) and a PhD (1990), both obtained from KULeuven. During more than 10 years, Peter Simkens was involved in development projects for the European Space Agency, including the development of training and simulation facilities for European astronauts, and the development of real-time IT-systems for space applications. In 1998, Peter Simkens became managing director of DSP Valley, the cluster of excellence in Smart Electronic Systems, headquartered in Leuven (Belgium). He developed DSP Valley to an outstanding business and innovation. Over the last 3 years, he has been transforming the DSP Valley eco-system from a cluster of micro/nano electronics technology providers to a full value chain cluster in smart electronic systems and IoT solutions, including applications in smart health, smart industry, smart cities and smart vehicles. Currently, he is also pioneering in stimulating cross-disciplinary innovation, by combining different Key Enabling Technologies.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution – Presented by Prof. dr. Ben van Lier, Centric

The Fourth Industrial Revolution – Presented by Prof. dr. Ben van Lier, Centric at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

As an individual, organization and society we undergo a technological revolution.  Our postmodern society is increasingly based on people, organizations and objects that are linked in networks. These networks allow us to make new interconnections and exchange and share information between random people, organizations and objects, regardless of time and space. Also the worldwide industry cannot escape from these developments. As a consequence of this, terms like industrial internet, advanced manufacturing, smart industries and cyber-physical systems become more usual. This fourth industrial revolution as the World Economic Forum appoints this development, forms a new challenge for companies and organizations and also a necessity to reinvent their (production) processes. Living, housing, working, producing and creating in networks requires a fundamental change in the perspectives with which we live, organize and produce.

Security by Separation: the future for connected devices – Presented by Tim Mace, Imagination Technologies

Security by Separation: the future for connected devices – Presented by Tim Mace, Imagination Technologies  at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

We live in an increasingly connected world  – TVs, gas meters and cordless drills, you name it. The consequences of having a device hacked can be devastating, and worryingly, most consumers don’t know just how vulnerable their devices actually are. Many connected products have been designed with little thought to security. For those devices that do employ hardware security, applications are often placed into a single zone, where it is possible they could compromise each other. What is needed are embedded solutions that are built from the ground up with a separation based architecture rooted in hardware, where each application and operating system works independently in its own trusted and isolated environment.

IoT & big data: end of privacy as we know it?– Presented by Nicole Wolters Ruckert, Kennedy Van der Laan  at the Internet of Things Eventwhich takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

My name is Nicole Wolters Ruckert and I’m a dedicated data protection & privacy lawyer of the Dutch law firm Kennedy Van der Laan (which recently opened an office at the Microlab in Eindhoven). I have more than 10 years of experience in the field of data protection. I’d be delighted to contribute to the Internet of Things-event at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven by sharing my thoughts and experiences regarding the privacy & data protection challenges IoT-innovations are facing, especially in relation to big data. Is the IoT and the use of big data, the end of privacy as we know it?

My contribution would  focus on the following: the use of big data analytics, specifically in the context of IoT, is proliferating large data sets. Companies across all industries are leveraging big data analytics to enhance their products and services (e.g. health care, the development of eHealth apps, etc.), improve marketing efforts, and e.g. prevent fraud and abuse of their services. Although big data offers substantial societal and public benefits, complex privacy and regulatory challenges must be thoroughly evaluated when analyzing aggregated purchasing behavior, consumer online activity, or medical information for secondary uses. My session will highlight the legal bounderies and focus on the legal especially the data protection issues when analyzing big data collected via IoT.
