    When machines have a conversation, what do they talk about?  But to even have the conversation, they must first connect.  For flexibility in deployment of massive numbers of sensors, the future network will be wireless.  Wi-Fi already carries half the Internet traffic, and with the explosion in the number of devices, that fraction is only set to grow, especially with the latest developments in the IEEE 802.11 family.  New devices place new demands on wireless networking expertise.  They outnumber users, but many of them do not impose the same performance demands on the network.  Building automation, physical security, and many wearables will result in higher-density networks, and the convergence of facilities with IT will place further stress on creaking wireless networks.  To cope with this new wave of demand, wireless networks must support higher density while enabling differentiated security models to support connecting everything you can image to the Internet.

    Matthew Gast is Director of Technology at Aerohive Networks, where he leads investigation into emerging technologies and their incorporation into the Aerohive network platform.

    Matthew has actively contributed to the development of Wi-Fi technology through multiple industry groups. At the IEEE 802.11 working group, he served as the chair of the 802.11-2012 revision and as a task group officer during the development of 802.11u. At the Wi-Fi Alliance, he has led multiple task groups the past eight years, and currently leads all security-related activities at the Wi-Fi Alliance.

    A noted author on networking, and Wi-Fi in particular, Matthew has written six books for O’Reilly Media that have collectively been translated into seven languages. In addition to the landmark 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide, now in its second edition, he is also the author of the companion volumes 802.11n: A Survival Guide and 802.11ac: A Survival Guide. Most recently, Matthew published Building Applications withiBeacon about location and proximity services. Matthew also contributes to O’Reilly’s emerging technology blog, the O’Reilly Radar.

    An avid pilot, Matthew is often found somewhere in the vicinity of an airport, and always looks forward to the summer soaring season in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

  • Emerging Technologies - Manufacturing USA with IoT, Data Analytics and AI

    Time: 10/11 (Thu) 19:00PM - 21:00PM(Registration starts at 18:30pm)

    Venue: ITRI International - 2870 Zanker Road, Suite 140, San Jose, CA 95134

    Registration: https://mfgusa.eventbrite.com

    Abstract: The speaker will discuss advanced manufacturing and the strategies being used by the U.S. government to regain manufacturing leadership,

    This presentation focuses on Manufacturing in the USA based on the following emerging technologies:

    ·       The Internet of Things

    ·       Big Data Analytics

    ·       Artificial Intelligence

    Microprocessors, micro control units, and MEMS are embedded in every mobile phone. There are other hardware and software that drive the Internet of Things (IoT).  The speaker will discuss briefly the IoT and Big Data Analytics in the following areas and smart everything such as smart cities:

    ·       Anatomy

    ·       Ecosystem

    ·       Taxonomy 

    The speaker will also discuss what is Machine Learning and the dangers of artificial intelligence. Impacts of global warming and sustainability are highlighted.
