IoT & Agriculture: Precision Farming Challenges

Abstract: The United Nations predicts an increase in world population to over 11 billion by 2100. All of these people will have to be feed. Increasing worldwide demand for food, a changing climate, and a limited supply of water and fossil fuels. Also, unsustainable farming is having negative environmental impacts. Agriculture of the future has to be more efficient and reduce environmental pollution at the same time. IoT devices bring numbers of opportunities to agriculture. Precision farming is a new farming management concept and tailored to the specific conditions of every field. Sensor integration, automatic control, information processing, and network communications capabilities are a part of this concept. The real-time agriculture data contains knowledge about what farming industry needs, how to imply production more efficient and how to establish a better security and IoT market for the agriculture industry.

IoT & Medicine: Improving the Science of Medicine

Abstract: Applications of IoT to medicine have been increasing in recent years. IoT employed in the medical field mainly to perform an analysis of the data available from clinical examination to get a reliable diagnosis of the patient’s disease and proper decision support. Many modern medical inventions have been achieved by placing common medical devices which collect valuable additional data, give extra insight into symptoms and trends, enable remote care, and generally give patients more control over their lives and treatment. These new systems are inevitably going to be a part of our daily life. This talk will address the common challenges, security and ethical questions in medicine with IoT.

A Geospatial Analysis of Twitter Content During The 2014 FIFA World Cup

Abstract: It is hypothesized that non-political events become politicized through social media. The World Cup is one of the most significant international sporting events. It usually requires large-scale construction of sporting facilities, infrastructure projects: road, accommodation, stadiums. There has been increased interest on the impact of the World Cup on the socio-economic and political life of the host city, country, and world. The real-time social content can be seen as a sensor that shows what is happening. The tournament racked up 1 billion Facebook interactions. 
It gave us plenty of space to perform a research including the definition of political vs. non-political events, extraction of user-generated content from Twitter, data processing, spatial and statistical analysis, sentiment analysis.

The influence of social networks on DevRel Community

Abstract: Don’t use social network to impress people, use it to IMPACT people. Social networking has the potential to support DevRel to a great extent. The important thing is that both a DevRel team and management understand that social networks are necessary for achieving goals of building inclusive communities. When done in balance, social networking is neither a sin, nor a benefit, but a mechanism to transform our daily efforts for the improvement of the DevRel community. This talk is a walk through personal experiences of using different social networks. As an honest evaluation of how one woman in technology, new to developer relations, without a network around her, grew a tech community with more than 25,000 connections on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook in 2 years.

The future of cryptocurrency & blockchain in our reality

Abstract: The nature of blockchain is changing, and this change should be accompanied by an evolution of funds. According to research studies, people were more willing to donate money to a cause using cryptocurrency rather than money. Anonymous nature is a great support in cryptocurrency replacing traditional currency to help with philanthropy or businesses. Look at our the journey of developing crowdsourcing platform including integration process.

How much knowledge of math is required for being an IoT programmer

Abstract: That could be a boring talk about mathematics, ethics, and philosophy. From the programming point of view, daily practical skills of writing code help to accumulate your intuitive experience. There are ambitions and a desire to solve and program real problems themselves, and most importantly to create fundamentally new technologies. The fundamental knowledge of mathematics and good abstract thinking will be very important.

The role of Artificial Intelligence in the Internet of Things revolution (article)

Abstract: Predictions for 2020 promise us many connected devices per person, terabytes of data per second to process without including IoT connected dogs and cats.  At some point, the Internet of Things will become the biggest source of data on the planet. And IoT can let the machines point out where the opportunities truly are.  IoT is producing a big haystack of data right now. To be able to find needles in this haystack you would need an artificial intelligence.
Many organizations struggle to make sense of the enormous amounts of data. They collect a huge amount of human-oriented data associated with its customers including their preferences, purchases, personal info. In some years AI will be an essential part of any IoT system.

The future of delivery messenger channels with SMS-fallback (article)

Abstract: Probably everyone remembers earlier days when SMS was one of the most used means of communication. This times, the dissemination of SMS in private communication is decreasing whereas SMS is still used for commercial communication. Especially for one-directional distribution of info from the company to the customer. In the future, the SMS may also lose this position and then will only serve as the fallback. New channels, internet-based messengers like Facebook, WhatsApp or Threema, will become more and more important and will compete with SMS. Instead of sending SMS to customers, companies will start using the same channels for commercial conversation as their customers for private. SMS then will only be used in case an Internet-based channel is not available or for time-critical services.

Embedded C# in the Internet of Things applications

Abstract: In reality, IoT solves the same problem for communication points as software architecture tries to solve for many years – distributed computing. Different nodes on difference machines try to communicate as well different Microcomputers. These devices can report about their statuses and interact with the environment. The main focus of the talk is that C# could replace Java for small devices, e.g. Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

Alert System for Real-Time e-Health Monitoring (article)

Abstract: Healthcare monitoring become easier with the help of SIM card and GSM shield, the connection is not dependent on an internet connection. It can also use the mobile network to transmit data or trigger an emergency call if something happens while the patient is in the supermarket. We will discuss solutions, security features, and suitability of new IoT epoch, which potentially can give people the freedom to stay in their home longer without medical supervision

DevRel (Developer Relations) with Agile makes for a good Molotov cocktail (article)

Abstract: Most of winning the battle is managing the fight! How do you get employers to buy into Developer Relations when it’s something new and unknown to the business?
This talk is a walk through personal experiences of taking a product which had very little to do with the developer to execute a global strategy with leadership buy-in.
This is an honest assessment of how one company grew from one woman in technology to a growth strategy, involving everyone in social media activities, development and customer support.
During last 5 years, we established own agile style, where the main bases is a combination of a trust, a freedom, a thinking value, a sharing leads and of course DevRel focus. We would like to share it with the audience, receive a feedback and start discussions about the future improvements.

B2D Competition: How “Rivals” Shape Our Marketing Strategy

Abstract: By definition in a “perfectly competitive” industry the fight for position is unrestricted and entry to the market is very easy. We can observe a similar situation in our DevRel community. This kind of business structure, based on collective forces.
But who shapes our industry? What strategy would be appropriate for the competitive balance on the B2D market? The overview of competitors on the market provides the groundwork for future action. With this knowledge you can easily highlight the critical strengths and weaknesses of your own DevRel strategy, clarify the areas where changes may provide the greatest payoff, and highlight the places where trends promise to hold the greatest significance.
The talk will focus not only on the state of competition in DevRel marketing but also on its real effect on the current DevRel strategy and how does it shape a different developer persona models.

From IoT to Human interactions with different approaches

Abstract: Internet of Things is mainly about connected devices embedded in our environment. Typically, ‘interaction’ in the context of IoT means interfaces which allow people to either monitor or configure IoT devices. Some examples include mobile applications, embedded touchscreens for control of various functions at homes and offices.
In some cases, humans are an explicit part of the scenario, as in cases where people are monitored by IoT devices. The main focus is to show what kinds of interaction techniques could provide IoT to be more human-oriented, what is the role of automation and interaction?

Fraud Protection Services and Cellular Networks

Abstract: In 2017 fraud cases in online banking are six times as high as the year before. By distributing manipulated apps, criminals are now able to hack into smartphones and route incoming messages to different devices. We will observe different scenarios that popped up over the past years and come up with protection methods.
The focus questions are: How to detect a security issue with the SMS messaging service, that is an extremely high danger for your service? What the core function of mobile communication which cannot be switched off by the MNOs and dangerous to your phone? Is there a solution to detect the infected SMS?

Programmers Wanted By Government

Abstract: It’s no secret that governments of different countries hire technology specialists for testing the security of own infrastructure and foreign targets. High salaries, recruitment campaigns, strange vacancies on job posting sites advertise an ethical hacking as the perfect career choice for those interested in problem-solving. How governments search for experienced programmers, who are able to help with the challenge of building reliable systems at a worldwide scale?

A Universal Language for Robotics

Abstract: The development of relatively cheap and powerful humanoid and animal-like robots has been accompanied by the development of a variety of software, libraries and other interfaces to control the robots. The diversity and complexity of these interfaces can only slow down the development of robotics and there is a need for a standard which could be universal, powerful and easy to implement. What are the main needs and architecture of such a standard?
