By Ken Briodagh January 24, 2019

Matt Vasey, chairman of the OpenFog Consortium, will deliver a keynote next week addressing fog and edge computing’s crucial role in enabling AI in enterprise ecosystems at IoT Evolution Expo. The conference takes place in Fort Lauderdale, January 29 through February 1. OpenFog, which is a sponsor of the Expo, will exhibit in booth #1303.

Vasey, who is Microsoft’s director, AI and IoT business development, will deliver his keynote “How Fog and Edge Are Enabling AI,” on Thursday, Jan 31 at 1 pm. He will also kickoff the Expo’s IoT@Edge Workshop on Tuesday, January 29 at 1pm. His workshop session,  “Where Edge Meets Fog,” will review how edge and fog are working together to advance the technology of managing critical data at scale.

“I’m looking forward to joining my colleagues at IoT Evolution Expo and the IoT@Edge Workshop to explore how fog and edge are delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling,” said Vasey.

Chuck Byers, OpenFog CTO and Architecture Chair, will present “OpenFog Reference Architecture and Beyond,” on Tuesday at the IoT@Edge Workshop at 2:30pm. He is also a panelist for the session “Putting Intelligence at the Edge,” to be held on Wednesday at 4:15pm. The other presentations in the workshop track are:

  • “Fogonomics,” by Tao Zhang, Huawei Technologies (USA);
  • “No Time but the Present: AI,” by Michael Campbell, Machineshop;
  • “Edge Computing: Remotely Acting on Mission-Critical Decisions in the Field,” by Giuseppe Mascarella, EKATRA IoT, and Jim White, EdgeXFoundry and Dell Technologies; and

On December 18, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the OpenFog Consortium (OpenFog) announced that they have agreed in principle to combine the two largest and most influential international consortia in Industrial IoT, fog and edge computing. The move will bring OpenFog members into the IIC organization at a time when their complementary areas of technology are emerging in the mainstream.
