  • Diskussion großer Themen: Die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung und wie wir wissenschaftliche Innovatoren fördern können
  • Ideen entwickeln: Wie stellen wir sicher, dass der Wert der Innovation geschätzt und Investitionen getätigt werden

Wie fördern wir Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung? Wer finanziert sie? Fördert Geldmangel Erfindungsreichtum oder wird Innovation gebremst, weil alle auf Nummer sicher gehen? Und wie steht es mit den Innovatoren der Zukunft? Tun wir genug, um ihr Talent zu fördern und zu unterstützen?

In Zeiten schwieriger wirtschaftlicher Bedingungen darf die Innovation nicht geopfert werden. Sie ist das Herzblut der Wissenschaft, Technologie und der Wirtschaft. Der Fokus muss dringend auf die Frage gerichtet werden, wie Innovation am besten gefördert und entwickelt werden kann - heute und in der Zukunft.

Darum versammelt die Innovationsdebatte 2012 - organisiert und finanziert von Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. - einflussreiche und anerkannte Persönlichkeiten aus der Welt der Wissenschaft, Technologie, Medizin, Technik, Bildung, Regierung, Industrie und aus den Medien, um zu diskutieren, wie die wissenschaftliche Innovation am besten angekurbelt und gefördert werden kann.

Unter dem Vorsitz des Physikers, Autors und Fernsehmoderators Professor Jim Al-Khalili und mit Experten wie dem Nobelpreisträger und Physiker Professor Sir Andre Geim, dem Mitbegründer und ehemaliger Präsident des Technologieunternehmens ARM Tudor Brown, dem Fernsehsprecher und Physiker Professor Brian Cox, dem Gründer von Lottolab Dr. Beau Lotto und dem stellvertretenden Leiter und Leiter der Abteilung für Krebstherapeutik am Institut für Krebsforschung London Professor Paul Workman wird die Innovationsdebatte untersuchen, auf welche Art sich am besten verhindern lässt, dass der aktuelle wirtschaftliche und finanzielle Druck die Innovation für die heutige und für zukünftige Generationen in Gefahr bringt.

Ziel der Innovationsdebatte ist es, wesentliche Themen zu erörtern, positive Schlussfolgerungen zu ziehen und die Agenda nach vorne zu bringen.

Jedermann - Fachleute aus Wissenschaft und Technik, Studenten und die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit - wird Gelegenheit haben, über Online-Medien aktiv an der Innovationsdebatte teilzunehmen, so dass sie weit über die Mauern der Royal Society hinaus reichen wird.

"Die Innovationsdebatte ist eine zeitgemäße Veranstaltung", erklärt Professor Jim Al-Khalili. "Die Welt der Wissenschaft und Technik muss das Wort 'Innovation' selbst für sich zurück erobern. Wie können wir also in der heutigen Zeit der Entbehrung Innovation fördern - und wie stellen wir sicher, dass wir die Innovatoren der Zukunft haben? Wir müssen darüber nachdenken, wie wir die Chancen, dass unsere Wissenschaftler und Techniker innovative Ideen entwickeln, maximieren können und wie die nächste Generation von Wissenschaftlern und Technikern ausgebildet werden sollte."

"Wie jedes andere Unterfangen steht die wissenschaftliche Forschung unter finanziellem Druck - aber was wären die Auswirkungen z.B. einer Senkung der Finanzierung der Grundlagenforschung, nur weil ihr wirtschaftlicher oder sozialer Nutzen nicht unmittelbar ersichtlich ist? Und wie würde die Innovation im Ergebnis darunter leiden? Dies sind die Art von Fragen, die wir bei der Innovationsdebatte erörtern werden."

In der Expertendebatte am 20. November wird es unter anderem um die Frage gehen "Wie gestalten wir die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung?" und "Wie können wir Innovation am besten fördern?"

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
