Optimizing the balance between edge and cloud in robotics
Robots, as embedded systems, are capable of local computation. However, different robotic systems operate in different environments under varied requirements and dynamic contexts. Robots might not always be able to lift the heavy computational load. Therefore, robot development should optimize the contention between reliance on cloud computation or on the edge (robot). In this talk, we will introduce these issues and suggest using a hybrid cloud-based paradigm.

“Beyond the (bounding) Box - Delivering value with video analytics”
Today, advances in Machine Vision and AI are creating entirely new product categories; things like vision-based parking sensors, underwater fish disease detection, media curation, construction safety intelligence, and threat detection -- just to name a few. For solution providers, however, the journey from an AI model to delivering business value is far from simple. From building and iterating on AI Models, to choosing the right hardware to run them on, to deploying them at scale in the field, to interfacing with cameras and vision sensors, and last but not the least - translating the bounding box output of the models to business logic and systems, solution providers must navigate a complex set of technologies to make it happen. This talk discusses the various building blocks, considerations and challenges in building and delivering end-to-end vision AI and video analytics solutions at the edge or cloud.

Combining IoT with NFTs, ZKPs and More
Many exciting technologies today that have their foundations based on key concepts of cryptography (e.g. blockchain, non-fungible tokens, smart contracts, zero-knowledge proofs, and many more). This presentation highlights the growing number of IoT use cases that combine advancing cryptographic-based technologies to deliver unheard-of value for their larger ecosystems and society at large.

Applied Scientometrics: Emerging Technology Scouting & Portfolio Analysis
The results of a bibliometric horizon scan of millions of publications, patents, and grants using natural language processing, probabilistic topic modeling, and other machine learning techniques to identify rapidly emerging research areas are presented. A comparative statistical analysis of research portfolios of various foreign and domestic government agencies demonstrates the value of scientific intelligence for planning future technology investments and forecasting technological innovation.

Agile Methodology for Embedded System Design
Embedded system development combines software, hardware, and mechanical engineering activities and thus has some characteristics and constraints which are not found in pure software engineering. Embedded systems always behave differently in the field than Lab testing and also there is always an end customer need other than designed products. So, Its development should be always close-loop instead. One should always deploy a simple basic feature proto instead of doing the final embedded system deployment. By adopting agile methods into embedded system development, All team members from different disciplines and different knowledge between the developers must be accepted and built upon, and the product progress must be considered & visualized at the end of each iteration. By applying agile in embedded, we always get multiple products, and the failure ratio of product deployment is always decreased. It doesn’t matter if the end product is the same as the beginning or not, but a successful embedded product will be there. In this topic, I am going to share my practical experience in how Agile technology will help Embedded system design

The Role of SBOMs & CVEs in Securing Embedded Products
The president’s cybersecurity executive order brought the Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) to the forefront of national security discussions. Join us for an enlightening look at what security risks and CVEs lurk in your products, using SBOMs to mitigate risk as part of DevSecOps, and how to efficiently deploy software security updates. The talk will present best practices to keep your products secure throughout their lifecycles.

Where Are You in the Product Development Funnel?
While there are as many product development methodologies as there are product ideas, the common situation is that people spend a lot of money and time without a coherent plan. In this presentation, Dave will walk through a few different graphic representations of the product development process and share common themes and mistakes he has seen repeatedly over his 20 years in business as an electronics product development consultant.
