4:30–5 p.m. The Network Effect: The Service Provider Strategic Platform
The service provider plays a crucial role in the evolution of IoT. We are about to have a new form of responsive network that detects the nature of devices with which it communicates: a network that incorporates and embraces many different forms of radio systems, enabling the use of devices with a much wider range of power and connectedness. How should leaders think about the potential of 5G, LP-WAN, and other emerging technologies? What are the early trials, and when will full support emerge?
5–5:10 p.m. BizTalk: Co-Innovating in FinTech
5:10–5:45 p.m. Securing Our Future: Managing Risk and Privacy in the Hyperconnected World
"What is our privacy worth? To marketers, your personal information, your likes and dislikes, and online behavior can mean profitable new revenue streams. To employers, keywords in your communications can tip them off to rogue insiders. And to governments, correlating whom you communicate with online, the web sites you visit, and your online searching and reading habits, may help identify potential criminal activity. And at the same time, strict personal privacy and data residency laws are being enacted in different parts of the world that will curtail who has access to an individual’s data. Can an IoT-adopting society stay safe, economically viable, and maintain individual privacy? Or has IoT adoption come at the cost of privacy?"
