Seminar 1: Data / IT, Iot

  • AM Session : DATA AND IT [moderated by David Lynch – ELM Solutions]
    • March 3, 2016
      • 9:15 am - 9:30 amRegina Reulbach - Commercial Development Manager at INSIGHTPresentation Title: Big Data – Where is the value? Presentation Synopsis: Data is everywhere. Sources are endless and data is growing massively on a daily basis. Though what data should I collect and why? This presentation will highlight opportunities, which derive from collecting the right data, analysing it and making better informed decisions. This creates value for people, business and government in a data-driven society. Practical examples of industry-research collaborations from the Insight Centre of Data Analytics will be shown. Insight is Ireland’s research centre for novel research in data analytics funded by SFI.

      • 11:20 am - 11:35 amDr. Michael McAuliffe - Researcher, CAPPA Centre Presentation Title: The added value of chemometrics for any industry through enhanced analysis of spectroscopic data. Presentation Synopsis: Chemometrics is the use of mathematical and statistical methods for selecting optimal experiments and a means of extracting the maximum amount of information when analysing multivariate (spectroscopic) data. This talk will focus on the application of chemometrics in the food and pharmaceutical industry and ways it can support root cause analysis of product contamination through spectroscopy measurements.
      • 11:35 am - 11:50 amProf. Fionn Murtagh - Professor of Data Science, University of Derby, and Goldsmiths University of LondonPresentation Title: New Challenges and Opportunities in Data Analytics, including Evaluation of Research and Innovation Presentation Synopsis: Burgeoning challenges in Big Data and data analytics include the following: ad hoc data collection; selection bias in social media, in biomedical research and elsewhere; not quantitative aspects alone but also qualitative; and the need to rehabilitate the individual. In various domains of application, we address these issues in promising and productive ways, through both narratives of lives and the lives of narratives. Thus we consider qualitative as well as quantitative data and information. It is recognised how the synthesis of data and information plays a major role in inductive reasoning, involved through and through in what can be characterized as the visualization and the verbalization of data. Attention is focused, here in particular, on the assessment of research and the innovation that can and should be hand in hand with research. This is motivated strongly by our editorial and related roles in many leading research journals, and our assessment work for research funding agencies in the UK, and many other countries globally.

      • 12:20 pm - 1:20 pmLunch and Networking
      • 1:20 pm - 1:35 pmNikolas Pearmine – Partner, Insight & Innovation Director, Black Swan InnovationPresentation Title: Open Source Innovation. The data science of Innovation. Presentation Synopsis: “ Why do 98% of product innovations fail?” Why? Especially when the landscape has changed so significantly; never before have we lived in an age where so many have shared so much, or have we had this information so readily available… Harnessing the power of data science and people, we will explore how it is possible to deliver robust innovations and ideas driven by real demand, through the exploration and prediction of trends, shifts in sentiment, and the development of live profiling trackers. Using real world data case studies, we will cover how big data can be used to derisk innovation, identify influencers and bring incremental and breakthrough ideas to market faster.
      • 1:35 pm - 1:50 pmProf. Theo Lynn – CEO, RendicityPresentation Title: Appetite for Disruption: Rendicity Presentation Synopsis: The talk will discuss how to identify whether your idea is disruptive and will provide a case study on how Rendicity is positioning itself to disrupt the HPC market.
      • 1:50 pm - 2:05 pmElaine Kelly - ELM SolutionsPresentation Title: Using Data to drive Sustainability
      • 2:05 pm - 2:20 pmRichard Hamerton-Stove – Senior Principal, Digital Transformation, Infosys ConsultingPresentation Title: Making sense of the increasingly complex digital enterprise Presentation Synopsis: What do we mean by ‘digital enterprise’ and how do we get things done in an increasingly complex and inter-dependent enterprise IT landscape? The amazingly fast pace of change in technology is creating a tidal wave of disruption across industries. There appear to be few limits to what technology can do today and no limits for tomorrow. Amidst all this excitement and opportunity its vital that corporations keep things simple if they are remain grounded and in control of their own destiny. It’s therefore important to develop models of what needs to be done, how it might be done and who is going to help it get done. Such models need to account for people, processes, technology, data and customers.
    PM Session : IOT
    • March 3, 2016
      • 2:25 pm - 2:50 pmCoffee Break and Networking
      • 2:50 pm - 3:05 pmChristine O’Meara - Commercialisation Specialist, TSSGPresentation Title: Wizeoni. “The connect self” Presentation Synopsis: Wizeoni believes that a customer-centric approach to personal digital data makes sense for individuals and organisations that serve those individuals. Wizeoni’s person-centric Data Platform-as- a-Service for the Internet of things enables organisations to seamlessly, collect, store and manage personal data in a privacy-preserving, transparent, data locker. This technology helps companies fulfill their compliance obligations in a resource-efficient, customer-friendly manner. Individuals can access data and manage permissions through granular user-based-access control. This presentation reveals the disruptive forces creating a demand for new ways of managing personal data and looks at how Wizeoni is solving the problem in the IoT space.
      • 3:05 pm - 3:20 pm David Goodstein – Connected Living Project Director, GSMAPresentation Title: Enabling the Internet of Things
      • 3:20 pm - 3:35 pm Dennis Muldoon - ICT ForgePresentation Title: Internet of Things – Convergence between MRP systems, ERP systems, Big Data Analytics and physical sensors. Presentation Synopsis: Internet of Things and the convergence between enterprise management solutions such as ERP systems, manufacturing requirements planning solutions such as DDMRP, and the physical sensors actually measuring the presence or state of objects. This convergence, allied with the multiplicity of data sources within and outside an enterprise will allow management software of the future to react to parameters which previously could not be detected. We already see some of this in the guise of Big Data Analytics, but in the very near future, this kind of analytics will need to be applied to an entire manufacturing process, to an entire business planning environment. To be successful, we need to make sure our Operations managers, our IT systems, and our technical planners are all working at the same pace and in the same direction.
      • 3:35 pm - 3:50 pmBrian Cahill - Programme Manager, Litmus Trialling CentrePresentation Title: Fail to Prepare, Prepare to Fail : Litmus – providing IoT testbeds to prepare new products for new markets. Presentation Synopsis: Litmus is a service provided by the Nimbus Centre, Cork Institute of Technology, where new products and services can be tested in a number of testbed environments. Litmus testbeds include access to numerous Energy related infrastructure on the CIT campus, water and sewage treatment infrastructure in collaboration with Cork County and City Councils, and the Urban and Rural Community Testbed based in Mallow Town and surrounding region.
      • 3:50 pm - 4:05 pmMichael D'arcy - CEO, Hal SoftwarePresentation Title: The use of prototyping to reduce time, cost and risk in pharmaceutical industrial automation and MES projects. Presentation Synopsis: The use of prototyping is standard in many industries. Clay and wooden models of cars are built at every stage of development for everything from conceptual design review to wind tunnel performance. Websites are rarely designed without the use of prototyping software such as Invision, and software development teams use products like iRise for prototyping. However, prototyping is not commonly used in Industrial Automation and MES projects. Michael discusses the pros and cons of prototyping these types of projects and shows where these projects can gain from the normal benefits of prototyping e.g. enhanced collaboration, better documentation and the use of standards and models.
