The concept of Intelligent Fusion takes advantage of IoT’s vast network of interconnected devices gathering real-time data from their environments, and AI’s ability to analyze, learn from, and act on this data intelligently. This synergy enables the development of systems that are not only connected and data-driven but also intelligent and adaptive to their operational contexts.
To delve into this dyamic topic, the EU Tech Chamber (EUTECH) Internet of Things (IoT) Alliance organised a webinar on February 07, 2024. The theme under discussion was, “Intelligent Fusion: Enhancing Systems with IoT and AI Integration”.
The webinar started off with a short overview of the organisation and a formal introduction of the panellists by Ahad Zaka, who is the coordinator of the IoT Alliance.
The speakers for today’s event were:
· Steve Carr – Founder of Market Traction International Ltd & Talkingiot.io
· Catharina Cerny – Sr Engineer Cslt-Ntwk Global Advanced Technology Support at Verizon
· Sahid Sesay – Founder of SmartConnect IoT
· Amy Niklasson – Project Leader, Ingenjörsbyrån AB
· Richard Niklasson – Co-founder, Elastic Move
During the Webinar, various aspects of using IoT and AI together, were discussed. For example, edge-computing and embedded AI, which, in the long-run tend to help manage risks such as security and privacy concerns like data breaches and manipulation. Another aspect is the quantum network that serves as an answer to quantum hacking. The need for developing these networks was highlighted, as one that be self-defining.
Furthermore, speakers debated the necessity of an alliance, one similar perhaps to NATO or other organisations- – thereby being able to serve as defence to its complexity and vulnerability.
Machine learning, generative AI and the recent capability of “reasoning” were also touched upon – whereby there is great potential that lies ahead in terms of presenting information to different people on different levels in accordance to their individual circumstances/environments. Other challenges included the weakness of the current mathematical models in use and how there should be specific and dedicated sources for different industries, going forward.
Despite the varying points of view, panellists surely agreed on one thing: this is only the beginning!
A sincere thanks to each speaker for their informed insights on this much-needed topic. To all our attendees – your comments, compliments, and questions made this session interactive and great.
The unwavering support of our Board Members, including Jorg Schiller, Ulf Seijmer and Alexander Raemisch, plays a pivotal role in the success of our initiatives.
A special thanks, too, to Ahad for moderating the webinar and distributing Tree-Certificates to the panellists.
