Welcome to our second U.S. Summit -- the TSensors (Trillion Sensors) Summit San Diego -- which will be held on November 12-13, 2014 at the resort Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, immediately adjacent to the campus of UC San Diego. TSensors Summit San Diego will bring over 30 presenters, and the expected attendees is 400.T
The unprecedented forecast for sensor growth is supported by the emergence of multiple global economic tides including Internet of Everything (the largest economic tide in history of humans with forecasted growth by $19 trillion by 2020), emergence of Exponential Technologies accelerating growth of goods and services above the demand growth rate, and the emergence of Exponential Organizations redefining business models and replacing traditional linear organizations. The expected outcome will be massive creation of new jobs and Abundance , and the elimination of major global problems such as hunger, lack of medical care, clean water and energy within one generation, in about 20 years.
We are pleased to announce two luminaries in the IoE world as our Keynote Speakers:
Our morning keynote speaker will be Flavio Bonomi, Ph.D., CTO of IoX Works, Inc. speaking on “The Distributed, Horizontal IoT Infrastructure, in the Perspective of the eHealth Vertical”.
Flavio will characterize the IoE market and will highlight the latest advancements of network architecture made by key providers in anticipation of massive sensor-based systems deployment: Fog and Swarm. These two standardized layers enable connectivity for TSensors, providing security, and saving startups and other user’s years and $10s of millions of development in deployment of smart systems.
Flavio was instrumental in conceiving and defining the Internet of Everything (IoE) strategy, while he was a Fellow, Vice President of Cisco. This lead to a current $19 trillion Cisco forecast for 2020 IoE, representing the biggest economic tide in history of humans on Earth.
Our afternoon keynote speaker will be Kris Pister, Ph.D., a professor at UC Berkeley. Kris is the world’s first visionary who in the 1990s conceived the TSensors wave coming in a form of smart dust: dust sized systems integrating sensors, actuators, computing and communications. He demonstrated working smart dust at US Berkeley, and went on to cofound a startup Dust Inc. focused on developing sensor mesh networking in challenging environments. Dust developed market most robust spread spectrum communication for multiple markets, including process control.
Kris will present important infrastructure developments paving the TSensors future in which he personally contributed, or UC Berkeley has been leading. Kris will conclude with his vision for forthcoming changes and opportunities for semiconductor industry resulting from the IoE and TSensors revolution.
