Amit Sinha and Heidi Riley will lead us through a workshop exploring how university life will change in the future, providing an interactive opportunity for participants to showcase their own ideas on how we can turn our university into a Smarter Campus.

Amit Sinha
Vice President & Executive Director - Europe, Co-President - SFSP York, Students for a Smarter Planet

Amit Sinha, the Co-President of SFSP at York is now in his final year of a Computer Science degree. As well as being Co-President, Amit splits his time between his duties as Vice President and Executive Director – Europe, for SFSP and serving on SFSP’s Global Advisory Board. Indeed, since arriving at York, Amit has made quite an impression on both the student body and faculty. Even in his first year, he became both the Computer Science Board of Studies Representative and the first Faculty Representative for the Core Sciences, roles in which he pushed through important changes. Outside of York, Amit has seen great success, gaining an award as one of the Top 20 Student Contributors in IBM’s Smarter Planet University JAM in 2009, and participating in IBM’s EMEA Best Student Recognition event 2010. He is also currently a Student Partner for Microsoft.


Heidi Riley
Secretary - SFSP York
Heidi Riley serves as Secretary for the York chapter of SFSP, and is a first year Theoretical Physics student here at the University of York. Having a particular interest in nanotechnology, she feels particularly drawn to the idea that by applying innovative design and intelligent thinking, we can transform the seemingly mundane into tools and machines that can shape our future. To support this, she is also actively involved in Physics Soc at the University. Outside of her studies, Heidi is a keen musician, and is part of a variety of musical activities on campus.

    • INSTRUMENTED
    • We now have the ability to measure, sense and see the exact condition of everything.
      • Today, there are 1 billion transistors for each person on the planet. 1
      • By 2010, 30 billion RFID tags will be embedded into our world and across entire ecosystems. 1
    • Everything will become instrumented: supply chains, healthcare networks, cities and even natural systems like rivers.
    • INTERCONNECTED
    • People, systems and objects can communicate and interact with each other in entirely new ways.
      • The internet of people is 1 billion strong. Almost one third of the world’s population will be on the web by 2011. 1
      • There will be nearly 4 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide by the end of 2008. 1
    • The Internet of things—cars, appliances, cameras, roadways, pipeline, pharmaceuticals and even livestock—is headed to 1 trillion.
    • INTELLIGENT
    • We can respond to changes quickly and accurately, and get better results by predicting and optimizing for future events.
      • Every day, 15 petabytes of new information are being generated. This is 8x more than the information in all U.S. libraries. 1
      • An average company with 1,000 employees spends $5.3 million a year to find information stored on its servers. 1
    • New computing models manage the massive amounts of data generated by the proliferation of end-user devices, sensors, and actuators. Combined with advanced analytics, these technologies are making us smarter.

  • The reason Smarter Planet is being realised is not only because we can . It is because we must .
  • The need for progress is clear. 6x Increase in global water usage since the 1900s, twice the rate of human population growth. 1 Cost of weather related events around the world from 1980-2003. 1 Annual consumer product and retail sales lost due to supply chain inefficiencies. 1 £25,000,000,000 £650,000,000,000 Source: IBM Presentation

  • The Smarter Planet. NEW INTELLIGENCE SMART WORK GREEN AND BEYOND DYNAMIC INFRASTRUCTURE German supermarket: Uses smart RFID labels to manage inventory with real-time sales data, improving product availability and enhancing the consumer experience. 2 Stockholm, Sweden: An intelligent toll system in the city center resulted in 20% less traffic, 40% lower emissions and 40,000 additional users of the public transportation system. 1 1 Approved Smart Planet Client References 2 Smarter planet sales deck Source: IBM Presentation British Airways: Uses mobile device check-in and other self-service technologies to help facilitate a trouble-free travel experience and save the airline $3.50 per passenger. 1 River and Estuary Observatory Network: Will create the first technology-based real-time environmental monitoring and forecasting network to guide better policy, management and education for the Hudson River and estuaries worldwide. 2
  • We’ve only just begun to uncover what is possible on a smarter planet.
    • The world will continue to become smaller, flatter and smarter. We are moving into the age of the globally integrated and intelligent economy, society and planet.
    The question is, what will we do with it? Source: IBM Presentation
