  • It’s great to be in Red Wing—thanks for inviting me to speak about the Who, How, and What of US Ignite over the next 30 minutes.
  • To accomplish our mission, we aim to develop 60 transformational / disruptive applications and deploy them on 200 community testbeds where the applications can be researched, developed, tested and refined. We are not the actual developers of the applications nor of the testbeds, rather we are educating stakeholders on next-generation technology and connecting all the people within the ecosystem that are needed to really move this forward. We serve as an incubator of great ideas and best practices, and a clearinghouse for our stakeholders.
  • How is this playing out in communities? Although the partners and coordinating entities are slightly different depending on the location – for example, Lake Nona has a coordinating entity similar to US Ignite that brings stakeholders together; in some cities that is done through local government such as a mayor’s office; in Flint it is Mott and Kettering University - the process looks similar.Communities:Mobilize stakeholders to deploy next-generation testbedsWork with end-users to set priorities and define challengesConnect with developers and partners to create applicationsLeverage US Ignite to do all of the aboveMost of our communities are in a phase in which they are connecting to/working with developers. This engagement is typically happening through competitions (Mozilla-Ignite and Chattanooga), university/students, corporate partner labs (US Ignite is working with partners to mobilize developers and connect them to communities), and some are community driven (Chattanooga).
  • We officially launched in June of 2012 and here are some of our partners. We’ll touch on this a bit later, but the names give you a sense of the myriad of stakeholders required to really move this initiative forward. We work with carriers such as Hiawatha Broadband, Verizon, Comcast and AT&T; equipment providers such as Cisco, Juniper and NEC; Research and Education Networks such as FloridaLambda Rail and Merit in Michigan; communities such as Red Wing, Lake Nona, San Francisco and Philadelphia; and foundations such as Mott.
  • I love this one called “Remote Surgery” – based on an application called “Surgical Theater” we demoed at the White House during the June launch of US Ignite.Applications like this save lives.Surgical theater allows a surgeon to take enormous amounts of data from a patient prior to surgery, and essentially “practice” on that patient before stepping foot into the operating room – using the patient’s real body as a “test bed.”To date the app has been used for brain surgeries, allowing surgeons to experiment with different “clip” sizes on aneurism patients. In a procedure where the difference between getting it right the first time, and trying to find the right size if you don’t get it right on the first try can cost a life, this type of tool is simply invaluable to the medical community.
  • SEVA is essentially a way to have semi-automated primary care terminals, like bank ATMs, that can be operated by non-medical professionals in rural areas where there aren’t enough doctors. It’s a great innovation, but it must be supported by high data rates to communicate the high resolution videos and imaging performed by the devices attached to a terminal in real-time.Studies have shown that people in rural areas have very limited access to health care despite their ability to pay for it.The solution:Due to a strong economic incentive for trained medical practitioners to move to urban areas, rural residents are left without enough access to health care notwithstanding their ability to pay for it. A solution to this problem is to have semi-automated primary care terminals, like bank ATMs, that can be operated by non-medical professionals. These "Seva" terminals have no dependence on physically present medical practitioners, as such, they can be operated by aptly qualified residents within the rural community. Patients who visit for treatment will be expected to pay a fee to cover maintenance costs for the terminal, the salary of the operator, and fees for the remote care giverhttps://mozillaignite.org/ideas/8/
  • In apps coming out of the Mozilla Ignite competition, a cloud-based complex event processing and monitoring system using existing equipment for signal input will create value for both the patients and their providers. The solution: With the emergence of biomedical signal monitoring devices, many people identify the importance of self-monitoring in keeping with good health. To stay fit, runners use mobile device applications to keep track of their heart rate and speed, which they can analyze after completing their exercise. Advances in modern biomedical signal monitoring will allow for deeper and more informative description of one’s health state at any given momentNext-gen networks will enable us to fence off a logical network for individuals’ real-time health information.
  • Few initiativesrequire more bandwidth than human genome sequencing. Genome testing can detect more than 2,500 medical conditions so far, some 500 of which are treatable. With enough bandwidth scientists have the ability to search all 21,000 or so genes at once for mutations that could increase the risk of disease. What cost $2.7 billion for the mapping of the first human genome has now dropped to $7,500 and is falling fast; thus the rise of “evidence-based personalized medicine.”
  • Another is the “SimCenter” out of the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. They’re creating an application that would allow first responders and government leaders to have an up-to-the second analysis of an emergency situation across a city, and be able to make better decisions based on real-time data from tens of thousands (even hundreds of thousands or millions) of censors – all powered by next generation infrastructure. This same application that can allow a city to be truly “smart” in evacuating its people in the midst of a “dirty bomb” strike or chemical spill, can also be used to optimize traffic flows for something as simple as our morning commute.
  • One of the best ideas we heard in Chattanooga came from a college team called “Gallery”“We’re college students, and we can’t afford expensive tools like Photoshop and Pro Tools”“Wouldn’t it be great if we could put that on a GENI rack on our campus and have access to it?” This isn’t just a college dorm thing… this is actually something that all the public could use.The public library is one of the greatest Civic Commons ever created – and in the 21st century, knowledge sharing and education is as much about our ability to work with information, not just consume it. Making advanced tools available to the public through advanced networks is a way to democratize the tools that shape our society and allow innovation to bubble up from anyone, anywhere – just like libraries always have.
  • When we boil it all down, this is essentially why we think we have a good deal for everyone. Applications are where the value of any new technology lies – and we’re driving apps that solve problems and create new opportunities in business. The resources we’re assembling through US Ignite can be applied in a multitude of ways. Communities can work with us to create a new vision and strategy that delivers a higher return on the broadband investments they’ve already made - and as new applications proliferate, it will drive the need and desire for new infrastructure investment. Companies who engage with us have an opportunity to be on the real cutting edge of the next-generation Internet, which is clear win for both future-thinking, as well as direct need as the path of technology and data continues to grow exponentially. And one of the things we see as both a current challenge as well as an exciting opportunity, is the ability to train new developers and startups in “gigabit thinking.” The technology sector has trained a generation of developers to build small and efficient. We’re asking technologists everywhere to open their minds to new possibilities, and we can’t wait to see what comes as this new generations of thinkers and doers come of age.
