Episode 96

Okay, our blockchain discussion isn’t quite over yet. Let me ask the question again, is blockchain ready to transact IoT business? The answer is still a resounding “no” but let me caveat it by saying, there are newer technologies that address blockchain’s bottlenecks and deployment weaknesses.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Ashish Mehta about the options available for those who want to incorporate blockchain-like functionality into IoT today ...




Episode 95

Is blockchain ready to transact IoT business? That’s the question I’ve been trying to answer during this mini series. While the quest has been intellectually interesting and frustrating at the same time, the answer is a resounding “no.” Although the tech is cool, blockchain is nowhere near ready to be used for business within the budgetable future.

Analyzing athlete data has been performed in high-level sports for years but it’s only recently that wearables and IoT could be realistically used to deliver useful information to athletes and coaches alike.
Watch this video (or read this transcript) to see Mounir Zok discuss how today’s wearables combined with state of the art Internet of Things technologies are advancing sport ...




Episode 94

There’s an evangelical tone surrounding blockchain and if you believe some of its biggest preachers, blockchain will completely change how the internet, and by association, the Internet of Things, will work, and in the process, will change the world. When I find myself slipping into this worldview I shake myself back into reality by looking at it from a business perspective.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with David Snyder to better understand the tech in order to better understand the business opportunity blockchain represents ...




Episode 93

Want to incorporate blockchain into IoT? Well, that’s a pretty tall order but you have two ways to go about it. Go it alone to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol and hope it’s adopted or join others that have similar goals to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol in hopes that it’s adopted.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Zaki Manian about the technology and business advantages of blockchain in IoT and the approach the Trusted IoT Alliance is taking to make them a reality ...




Episode 92

Blockchain. One of the few technologies more hyped than IoT. Put them together and it’s a hypefest. But is it warranted? Honestly, I don’t know but I can tell you, for me, the decision is not going to be based on if it’s cool tech, it’s going to be based on, if that cool tech contributes to making more money.

Episode 89

The digital twin can be hierarchical – representing environments, systems, products and even parts. When digitizing supply networks with digital twins, the network can be a digital twin of its systems, which can be digital twins of their assets, which can be digital twins of their parts which themselves can be digital twins. Sound complicated? It doesn’t need to be. Start at the level of the hierarchy that returns the most value and proceed from there.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Dr. Lane Warshaw and Aaron Parrott about the digital twin and its profound use in digital supply networks ...




Episode 88

We’ve discussed the digital twin at length but what is the cognitive digital twin? Is it possible to develop cognitive computing models with our data to endow our digital twin with artificial intelligence? The answer is yes.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Dr. Ahmed El Adl about how this is done and the situations where an AI approach to reaching insights may be better than an analytics approach ...




Episode 87

The digital twin is a federation of data and models that can be analyzed or put into a simulation to create useful information about the past, present or future of the DTs physical twin. The type of model and the level of model can make or break the analysis or simulation.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I get down and dirty with Jim Tung, breaking the digital twin down in order to understand this most important tech at both the atomic and system level ...




Episode 86

The IoT platform is generally thought of as networking tech – middleware to connect all the IoT components together – and often it is, but a certain class of platforms, the so-called, application enablement platforms, or AEPs, also provide the development and execution environment for the digital twin.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), the third in a series on the digital twin, where I speak with Jason Schern and Jeff Miller about the dt and its relationship to the AEP ...
