Robert Cohen spoke at several previous IoT Slams and is a frequent speaker at Cloud Expo and other conferences. He directs the Economic Strategy Institute’s project on the economic impact of the move to a digital economy that is focusing on IoT, AI, and ML. The project has won a Cisco university grant as well as support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Berggruen Foundation, Brocade and the OECD. Dr. Cohen has served on the Steering Committee of the Global Grid Forum and has written extensively on enterprise use of IoT. Firms such as Intel, IBM, Corning, Sun, and Juniper Networks have funded his work. Dr. Cohen founded the New York part of the academic Internet, NYSERNet, and is a founding member of the Internet Society. He holds a BA from Swarthmore College and a PhD from the New School for Social Research.View the profile
About the talk
As “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) said in Top Gun, “I feel the need — the need for speed!”. Today, smart factories are adopting 5G Private Networks. One of the biggest benefits it to fulfill firms that mimic “Maverick” — with today’s IoT sensor networks, firms can wait 20 milliseconds or more to see results from data analysis. 5G gives firms immediate — 1 millisecond — access to key variables. I will discuss how “knowledge synthesis” serves as a tool to understand the economics of IoT and how network effects within firms and between firms are likely to be supercharged once 5G is added to IoT. Once firms combine these two factors, 5G communications and IoT, they drive firms to extend IoT far more widely. At Scania, the Finnish truck and mining vehicle manufacturer, only 1000 of 10,000 mining vehicles are currently connected to wireless networks. This is changing quickly. One motivation is Scania’s hope to become a provider of connected vehicle services, where customers will subscribe to analytical reports that will help them improve preventive maintenance, optimize the coordination among groups of vehicles, and identify new services that they can sell to customers. In terms of new services, this would be an extension of Scania’s value chain beyond direct sales of vehicles. Moving in this direction would change Scania’s business model to a product-as-a-service model very much like Rolls-Royce, Michelin and FANUC. This presentation will examine why linking 5G and IoT will make Tom Cruise a ‘happy hot gun’. It will also explore how other firms like Mercedes, Ford, Daimler Trucks, Scheider Electronic, and BMW are beginning to link IoT and 5G. I hope to include a short video of Maverick to start the talk.
Hi, my name is Bob Cohen. I'm a senior fellow at the economic strategy Institute in Washington. And I've been involved with iot slam pretty much since the beginning over that time I evolve from looking at the emergence of Cloud computing and some of its dimensions and how it fits in the iot and more recently. I've been working on how smart firms are beginning to use iot in different ways and adding 5G networks or high-speed Network at the age that they can then use for compute storage
and Analysis of service slideshow summarizes some of the more recent work and I hope it contributes to the schwa de vivre that many of the people who are part of iot Slam have always had since the beginning. It's it's been a very collegial place to to meet a lot of opportunities to share knowledge and make make friends. So I hope this contributes to the Community as a whole also I'm in when private 5G networks get established at smart factories where the factories are running in a paperless stash
mainly depending on data analysis from machine learning. And AI one of the key things that happens is the ability to get access information and the results of data analysis speeds up dramatically. So today when a
