Blockchain in Fog Environments
T-03
Editor-in-chief RTInsights Co-Founder and VP of Engineering Xage Security Sr Director, Smart Software Center of Excellence Flex Enterprise Cloud Architect Oracle
Blockchain provides a security foundation that is autonomous, real-time, decentralized, zero-touch deployable, and adaptive - in short, that works well with fog. As a distributed platform itself, blockchain can be used for decentralized data storage and access control. By enforcing immutable records and sharing security data across all the nodes in its network, blockchain technology is tamper-proof and redundant. Through a process of continual reconciliation, autonomous consensus between fog nodes on a blockchain-protected security fabric secures the network when new or intermittently connected devices join it. The devices identify and isolate rogue devices and applications infected with malware. This self-healing capability delivers the data integrity and redundancy that the industrial IoT needs to thrive. Additionally, through this consensus, the more fog nodes added, the stronger the fabric gets, ensuring the secure storage, transmission, and analysis of data on a fog computing network. This panel will discuss blockchain-protected security technology as a novel approach to enable IIoT adoption and the best practices for implementation.

Getting Real: ML, AR & Fog Collide with Magic Leap (Live Demo!)
T-05
Ph.D., CEO & Co-Founder ActiveAether
This session will cover how fog computing architecture can make life easier for software developers and specifically DevOps engineers, eliminating challenges of deploying to traditional cloud computing infrastructure – like instance provisioning, load balancing and scaling, server maintenance, preparing for instance failure and more. It will walk through step-by-step what is different for developers deploying to fog architecture, what services and applications are particularly well-suited to fog, and how fog’s dynamic provisioning capabilities provide additional cost efficiency.

At the Edge of Analytics: Using Fog Technology for Real-time Analytics
T-06
Senior Director of Product Management Swim Inc. Director & head of IOT Product Management Teradata Labs
Real-time decisions and responses, privacy considerations and communication costs are causing a shift from the cloud to fog. This panel will discuss how to use streaming analytics techniques closer to where data is generated, for continuous input processing and on-time output delivery, in order to comply with the timing requirements of real-time response.

New Fog-based Approaches to Secure the Internet of Things
T-08
Director of IoT, CTO Group Cisco
IoT security and scalability are two of the main issues in IoT deployments. Today there are approximately 8.2 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet. By the year 2020 this number is forecast to grow to 25 billion IoT devices, and by 2025 IoT forecasts are expected to reach between 75 and 100 billion [source: IHS, IDC, Nokia]. Device security is the top concern across all IoT markets; consumers, small & medium businesses, enterprises, and the industrial sector. In particular, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have increased in pace over the last few years. These attacks have specifically leveraged non-secure IoT devices – examples of these attacks are Petya, Mirai, and Wannacry. The trends are for increased occurrences and sizes of DDoS attacks as there is an upsurge of IoT things connecting to the Internet.

The Use Cases for AI
T-10
Director of Engineering Plantronics Senior Director of Product Management Swim Inc. CTO Difuon
Together, IoT, AI, AR, ubiquitous connectivity, cloud and analytics are enabling all-new types of communications and engagement experiences. Some of these scenarios and use-cases will be mundane and others profound, but there’s an expectation that all will appear seamless as people move throughout their day. A key ingredient for success will be striking the right balance between enabling individual, discrete engagements from the edge -- edge computing / Smart-IoT / edge empowerment -- while simultaneously orchestrating a seamless user experience across a range of platforms, devices, and scenarios in a holistic, purposeful and secure fashion through the cloud.
