INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION, IIoT, AND AI: HOW THESE PARTNERS IN PRODUCTIVITY ARE BOOSTING PERFORMANCE
Implementing IoT devices has already proved to improve processes and reduce costs across various industries, including energy, healthcare, manufacturing, supply chain, transportation, cities, construction, and telecommunications. However, as the field becomes more competitive, how can you use automation and artificial intelligence to strengthen your productivity performance even more? How can you avoid setbacks that can cause massive delays? How are companies utilizing sensors to track pinpoints and measure OEE along product lifecycles to save time and money? How are intelligent technology and robotics learning to correct, adapt, and make decisions?
11:00AM-11:15AM: Editorial Keynote with Stanley Black & Decker's Saip Eren Yilmaz
11:15AM-11:30AM: Editorial Keynote with Cisco's Bryan Tantzen

PARTNER KEYNOTE WITH CHECK POINT: INDUSTRIAL CONTROL SYSTEMS (ICS) CYBER ATTACKS - REALITY
Deploying Connectivity continues to increase across industrial control systems (ICS) which ultimately helps to ensure that critical industrial processes are smooth and up-to-date. However, what’s often overlooked are the threat actors targeting the expanding and increasingly interconnected network surface across manufacturing and critical infrastructure facilities. While there are ways that automation, IIoT, and AI can help boost performance, there are ways those same beneficiaries can expose all of your OT-related devices and facilities to risk – causing major disruption and damage to processes over time.
Check Point provides the industry's most comprehensive cyber-security solution for Industrial Control Systems, keeping connected assets, including Industrial controllers, SCADA servers, and sensors on the OT network secure and protected.
Join this short discussion to discover how Check Point provides:
- Industrial Automation, IIoT, and AI
- Best-in-class threat prevention to block attacks before they reach critical OT systems
- Auto-generated policies to minimize risk exposure
- IT/OT network segmentation
- Comprehensive risk analysis

THE IoT-ENABLED FACTORY: ADVANCES IN SENSORS, CONNECTIVITY, AND INTELLIGENT DATA
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is introducing higher levels of interconnectivity, autonomy, and energy conservation across the manufacturing world. Smart sensors that are being embedded into machines throughout the supply chain are generating more efficient production, less down time, and higher quality products. But understanding how to integrate these systems into your infrastructure in a way that utilizes their full capacity is tricky. How can you envision and execute the assimilation of your workflows? How do advanced wireless networks like 5G improve connectivity, capacity, and reliability? How are IIoT devices being implemented on the factory floor to keep employees safe and healthy as we transition to a post-covid work environment? How has the pandemic impacted the integration of robotics and AI?
2:00PM-2:15PM: Editorial Keynote with Antmicro's Michael Gielda and The Linux Foundation's Kate Stewart
2:15PM-2:30PM: Tech Talk with Kinexon: Location, Location, Location: The Missing Piece of the Automation Puzzle
2:30PM-3:15PM: Panel Discussion

FROM PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE TO REMOTE MONITORING: NEW AND EMERGING IIoT USE CASES
While IoT has the potential to excel productivity and efficiency, it also has the ability to minimize down time and prevent issues. New technologies can use data to identify unusual patterns that lead to equipment malfunctions, and then alert personnel before incurring a significant loss of time and money. What are the inefficiencies in your operations, and what kind of data do you need to correct these inefficiencies? What are some of the innovative ways IoT is being used to monitor occupancy and presence and therefore ensure safe social distancing practices?
11:00AM-11:15AM: Keynote with Schneider Electric's Roger Manus
11:15AM-12:00PM: Panel Discussion

THE EVOLUTION OF CLOUD AND EDGE COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
As IoT-enabled architectures are becoming more complex, the use of cloud and edge technology is evolving. The low bandwidth and speed that comes with long distance cloud computing can prevent real-time data processing, making the case for several companies to extend their computing power to edge. So where should your company dedicate their computing power? What data should you sent to the cloud and analyze at the edge? What is the impact of IoT Edge on the digital transformation of industry, infrastructure, and cities?
2:00PM-2:15PM: Editorial Keynote with Verizon's Erik Varney and Technology Consultant and a Contributing Tech Journalist, Eric Taub
2:15PM-3:00PM: Panel Discussion
