There is a lot of talk about the potential of the Internet of Things. But what is happening on the front lines? Where are the examples of real impact?

Enlighted CEO Joe Costello will discuss how the IoT is impacting commercial real estate, the largest asset class in the world, by giving buildings a “sensory system” akin to a human body. Once deployed, there are a multitude of new opportunities to improve business processes thanks to granular data that has never been available before.

Learn how this technology is currently being developed and applied, the challenges, along with predictions for the future of IoT in commercial buildings.

EDA has continually moved to higher levels of abstractions, changing how electronics are designed and created. Now we are seeing the need in the industrial world for further digitalization and virtualization.

In his keynote, Chuck Grindstaff, Executive Chairman of Siemens PLM Software, will discuss the global impact of this digital transformation. EDA pioneered this revolution and paved the way for today’s digital industrial revolution that is transforming and disrupting all industries. For system companies, their products are evolving into advanced system of systems. As a result, SoCs and application software are now the core differentiation and enabling technologies. This is spurring growth and opportunity for IC designers in the convergence of semiconductor and systems. Siemens and Mentor together are setting the vision for this new era of digital transformation.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has been hailed as the next frontier of innovation in which the everyday “things” in our homes, offices, cars, factories and cities connect to the Internet in ways that improve our lives and transform industries. The IoT market is poised to reach 70 billion connected devices by 2025, but several challenges remain in achieving the market’s full potential. Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs, will explore what it will take to accelerate the promise of the IoT. In his keynote, Tyson will consider the market imperatives and engineering challenges of adding connectivity to electronic devices, including cost, ease of use, energy efficiency, interoperability, future extensibility, and security. Addressing these challenges will unleash the limitless possibilities of a more connected world.


DAC 2017 | Keynote: Emotion Technology, Wearables, and Surprises

Years ago, I set out to create technology with emotional intelligence, demonstrating the ability to sense, recognize, and respond intelligently to human emotion. At MIT, we designed studies and developed signal processing and machine learning techniques to see what affective insights could be reliably obtained. In this talk I will highlight the most surprising findings during this adventure. These include new insights about the "true smile of happiness," discovering new ways cameras (and your smartphone, even in your handbag) can compute your bio-signals without using any new sensors, finding electrical signals on the wrist that reveal insight into deep brain activity, and learning surprising implications of wearable sensing for autism, anxiety, sleep, memory, epilepsy, and more. What is the grand challenge we aim to solve next?
