|1:00 PM - 2:00 PM||
The evolution of an aging US electrical system has not come without its problems. Society is beginning to demand an energy system that focuses on greater resilience, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability – but can their demands be met? Digital technologies and innovations in the energy sector like microgrids, net metering, and stand-alone systems are all aimed toward effectively managing energy needs and costs, and may hold the key. Yet, with so much innovation, why are blackouts still happening? This session will aim to highlight the problems stopping the US from achieving a sustainable energy system to meet society’s new demands, and how innovation can help.

The Wall Street Journal Panel
Today we stand on the brink of the fourth industrial revolution where Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) wireless and mobile technologies, decentralized data processing in the cloud, and artificial intelligence (AI) will allow manufacturers to produce more cost-effectively and with fewer human interventions. IIoT is here and the goal is simple: increase productivity and efficiency. Along with thoughtful plant design, there is considerable potential for further automation benefits through implementation of technologies such as artificial intelligence for decision-making based on sensor-data, machine learning, and augmented and virtual reality. To some extent, the future is already here. So where do we go next? In this session, we'll discuss how IIoT impacts business productivity and efficiency today.
