Industry Forum is an IES program for Industry to engage with research in a productive
manner. Industry speakers are invited to discuss industry, technology directions, and, most
importantly, challenges for the companies. We want all conference attendees to engage in the
Industry Forum and listen to the presentations of our industry speakers so all communities
Industry Forum Sessions
Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront,Vancouver
Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and its applications to Robotics and
Practical applications of Artificial Intelligence have been increasingly demonstrated the last years especially in the domain of intelligent and autonomous cyber-physical systems. Especially in robotics applications for both industry and consumers, the advances bring us closer than ever to the machine intelligence visions. The aim of this session is to present, demonstrate and discuss key advances in AI and its specific industrial applications in robotics and automation.
Talk 1: Automating Routine Operational Decisions: Using Sensors, AI and Connectivity (9:30-9:50am)
Mahdi Ramezani, Director of Core Research Development, from Motion Metrics.
Talk 2: How can we design ethical AI and robotic systems? Creating A Design Roadmap (9:55-10:15am)
Shalaleh Rismani, Director of applied design research and training, from Open Roboethics Institute (ORI).
Talk 3: Did You Hear That...? Augmenting Custom Vision AI with Sound (10:20-10:40am)

Session 2: 5G and Smart-X applications (11:00-12:10am)
New communication paradigms such as 5G are becoming a reality. The new capabilities 5G introduction at scale brings such as Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), have the potential to empower a new generation of IoT relevant applications and services, collectively referred to as smart-x e.g. smart cities, smart grid, smart health etc. However, for 5G to succeed, key issues such as infrastructure setup, security, safety, privacy, full-integration of its capabilities to new applications, etc. need to be realized. This session aims at providing a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that 5G brings.
Talk 1: Implications of 5G for Industrial IoT (11:00-11:50am)
Stamatis Karnouskos, from SAP, Germany.
Talk 2: Snapshot of 5G Standards Landscape and Multi-Access Computing (MEC) (11:00-11:50am)
