Talk title
Industrial Internet, Internet of Things, Big Data: Business Opportunites, Pure Players vs. Brick & Mortar
Talk abstract
“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially”. Behind Pearson's law hides the promise of the second digital revolution of the 21th century. This revolution is generally described under the concepts of Smart Objects, Industrial Internet, Internet of Things (IoT) or Big Data / Data Analytics. However, contrary to the Information and Internet revolution, the dynamic behind this transformation is slow and hidden, mainly due to the segmented market of traditional industries. During this talk, we will try to analyse the reality of the Industrial Industry market, the construction of the value chain and the adequacy and pertinence of the developped technologies regarding the needs of on-field engineers.
Guillaume Chelius obtained his Ph.D. from the INSA de Lyon enginnering school in 2004 and joined the INRIA as a Research Scientist the same year. Between 2004 and 2010, he developped his research in the domains of Wireless Sensor Networks.
