The Fog is the new AI Infrastructure
IV-01
Director of IoT Business Development Microsoft
Advances in AI are already demonstrating the potential to augment what humans are capable of, and they are already fundamentally changing our lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined even five years ago. As AI becomes a critical part of mainstream products, services and other innovations the deployment of these technologies becomes critical. Fog Computing is a deployment model for AI that is already revolutionizing the way that we think about the intelligent edge. In this session we will explore how Fog Computing is delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling as well as enabling new scenarios impossible with the Edge and Cloud paradigms.

Smart Fog In the Digital Workplace
IV-02
Founder & CEO Integrative Technologies LLC
The growth of IoT, cloud computing, changing work styles, and digital work processes have resulted in the growth of the Digital Workplace. The Digital Workplace is an interactive environment, in contrast with the traditional office, which was a passive container of human and physical assets. In order for the Digital Workplace to be effective, it needs to be fully-connected, with a galaxy of sensors, edge processors, and intelligent network connections. Multiple systems must be integrated, including mobile devices, environmental systems, and security infrastructure. This session will discuss the major trends and implications of the Smart Workplace. Given the multi-billion dollar combination of commercial real estate and technologies involved, anyone interested in the Fog movement should consider this major emerging market for Fog technologies and approaches.

The Social Impact of Emerging IoT/Fog/AI on Society Part I
IV-07
Director Strategy and Planning, Chief Privacy Office, Security & Trust Organization Cisco Director, Technology Ethics Santa Clara University COO UberKnowledge Researcher Warwick Business School Professor of Strategic Management & Head of Strategy and International Business Group Warwick Business School Corporate Responsibility & Human Rights Manager Intel
“AI is far more dangerous than nukes”, claims Elon Musk. So, what happens when AI starts to converge with other emerging technologies such as IoT, Fog, AR/VR, blockchain, and 5G? What does it mean to prepare and be prepared for both risks and opportunities? On the other hand, cities face the daunting challenge of figuring out how to serve 60-70% of the world’s ~10B population by 2050. There is strong consensus that cities, supported by companies, will need to rethink how they procure, manage, utilize and secure smart devices and services to scale delivery of transportation, energy, healthcare, education and environmental sustainability systems. So far, a convergent set of technologies starting with big data and cloud computing followed by AI, IoT, Fog, blockchain and 5G are shaping the landscape of smart city concepts. Yet, as cities and citizens rush to evaluate and adopt these technologies to address their challenges, it is also important to examine the broader plausible social impact and implications of such technologies, whether they be negative as well as positive, in a holistic way. For example, for autonomous driving, who gets to decide what the car’s algorithm decides in a life-death situation? Who gets to decide who owns and controls the massive amount of passenger data being created within and around an autonomous car (25x more per day than mobile phones)? Who is responsible for securing an autonomous car from hacking and who is liable if it does? In short, how might we proactively promote the benefits of these technologies as well as mitigate their risks? In this panel, we will explore latest thinking around these and other hot topics and trends.

Using Fog to Enable AI at the Edge
IV-10
Senior Vice President of Devices Product Marketing and Management Western Digital
There are billions of computers all around us, many of which function at a mere fraction of their computational capacity. Fog computing offers an architecture that can leverage those untapped resources to run software services that used to be run only in the cloud. As a result, we can source processing power for today’s traffic-heavy tech like IoT, AI, Machine Learning and more on computers that are better suited than cloud in terms of geography, speed, and scalability, reducing the distance data has to travel and the overall strain on a network, and eliminating single points of failure. However, building a fog computing architecture that involves computing resources owned by different parties would be impossible without a marketplace. This session will talk about a blockchain-based payment mechanism with a fog computing architecture, called the FogCoin Marketplace, which performs two essential functions: a) incentivizing computer owners to make resources available to the network by paying them and b) routing demand for processing power to appropriate computers, based on criteria that includes price in addition to geography, availability and more.
