Planning Meeting for an Industry-University Consortium

ROOM: E141

Hosted By: Oregon State University & University of Colorado
3:00 – 5:00 pm


IoT marks the dawn of a technological revolution that rivals the industrial revolution. In this new era, intelligent computing becomes anticipatory, proactive, and adaptive. Whereas the current IoT version 1.0 consists of deploying sensors and actuators in the physical world, the next big growth in IoT systems will come from pushing pervasive personalized intelligence (PPI) to the edge of the network, where latency is critical, and mobility, privacy, and context awareness are essential qualities of the application. This will enable an entirely new class of applications by generating business intelligence that is predictive instead of reactive, thus making processes more efficient and saving time, energy, and money.

The major challenge to this vision is the existence of an ecosystem of IoT infrastructure, useful services and applications, and users using these in the wild. An industry-university consortium has the potential to significantly bring all of these together, and thus accelerate innovation in IoT. Large companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon are actively working on aspects of PPI with large research teams. However, this is not feasible for smaller companies. The center will make the PPI technological advances widely available to small and large
companies alike, and to communities. Furthermore, the relationship with large and small companies is not only about IP, it is about diverse thinking that broadens their perspective, and enables standardization and partnerships.

This 2 hour planning meeting brings together several industries and communities, researchers from the Oregon State University (OSU) and University of Colorado (CU), and government representatives to discuss about joining forces toward a new Center on Pervasive Personalized Intelligence. Participants will meet representatives from other companies that have similar needs and will give a lightning talk on the areas they need help, in line with the skills and expertise of the research teams at OSU and CU.
