Edge computing: Transition, adoption and beyond
Edge computing is a way to streamline the flow of data from IoT devices and provide real-time local analysis and decisions. But why does edge computing matter, why is it different to fog computing and how secure is it?

Swarm robotics and its applications in agriculture
Swarm robotics is emerging technology that has the potential to revolutionise food production by enabling flexible, scalable, and reliable precision agriculture at low cost. Coordinating fleets of small autonomous robots can minimise soil compaction, increase farming resolution, and provide solutions that are intrinsically safer than larger agricultural vehicles. This session will explore ways in which IoT technology can integrate with robotic platforms to create the farm of the future.

Goods, persons, houses, situations and industrial processes all radiate data and create digital twins
These twins exist as connected, dynamic digital representations of their real life counterparts.

Data and analytics are spread across many stakeholders, often without clarity on ownership and control. This session address issues related to “agency”, ontology and tools in a fluid, fast changing environment.
