Tools for the Future of the Digital Infrastructure Lifecycle - #COMIT2016

  1. 1. Digitally Building Britain #COMIT2016 28th/29th September 2016. London, UK. Francis Rabuck, Principal Research Consultant Tools for the Future of the Digital Infrastructure Lifecycle As a new era of Digital Infrastructure arrives, we have to ask ourselves are we prepared? How will we design, build and measure Infrastructure through the 4th Industrial Revolution? How will government, industry, jobs and society change to adapt? Like Godzilla gods we plan to build and destroy cities with budgets we can’t even imagine, and maybe can’t afford. The machinery of past eras, our construction equipment, our digital planning and collaboration, even our current digital drawings and methods will not be enough. We need to create a new era of ideas, tools and applications for this Era of Mass Construction – and do it quickly! Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, VR/AR, NextGen Computing, Sensors, Image capture, Data Tracking and Collaboration, User Interfaces (UX) and Measuring Tools are just a few of the technologies we’ll discuss that are emerging to conquer this Era.
  2. 2. “Great” to be back for Year 5! • “Make America Great Again” • “Great Gatsby” • “Great” Britain
  3. 3. Mobile Future • COMIT roots are Mobile • Mobile is still central to IoT • Future of Everything Digital • …but “Mobile” is being Redefined
  4. 4. Mobile is NOT…
  5. 5. Mobile is Sensors…
  6. 6. Mobile is Adaptable – Moto Z
  7. 7. CHIPS of the FUTURE – AI • Artificial intelligence (AI) has relied on energy- hogging fast processors and large datasets for training neural networks – both of which presupposed centralized computing architectures. But today, more powerful chips are lettingAI escape from centralized, cloud- based systems and move out to devices at the edge of the network. Among incumbents, Intel spent a whopping $16.7 billion on AI chipmaker Altera; Google is developing an AI chip called Tensor and working with Movidius to put AI on a USB stick; and Nvidia has dropped $2 billion so far on itsTesla graphics chip for machine vision and other AI tasks. At the same time, startups like krtkl, KnuEdge, Nervana, MIT’s Eyeriss, and China’s Horizon Robotics are all developing new chips to bring AI to robots, self-driving cars, and other things in the Internet ofThings (IoT) that have to operate independently with an intermittent network connection – an IoT without the Internet.
  8. 8. Watson- AI Video

  17. 17. Collaborative Robotics, Cooperative Robotics =CoBots • Collaborative Robtics – MainstreamTrend for robots safely working with Humans (who also typically train them on a task) • Cooperative Robotics – FutureTrend – Robots working with each other, swarming, ground-air, etc. • Merging of these to define CoBots era
  18. 18. Components of CoBots (NSF) • Cognition • NLP • Resiliency • Dexterity • Mobility • Interoperability • Safety • Emotional Awareness
  19. 19. Sensors/Robotics
  20. 20. Senses/Sensors Sight or vision Capability of the eyes to focus and detect images, color, light, brightness and shapes. Hearing/Auditory – Voice Recognition Ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure over time. Touch Touch, or somatosensory, is a perception resulting from activation of neural receptors, generally in the skin and includes pressure sensitivity. Taste Olfactory (Smell) Capability of the eyes to focus and detect images, color, light, brightness and shapes.
  21. 21. 6th Sense and 7th Sense Vestibular The vestibular system explains the perception of our body in relation to gravity, movement and balance. The vestibular system measures acceleration, g-force, movements and head position. Source: http://www.7senses.org.au/ Proprioception Proprioception is the sense of the relative position of neighboring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement.
