Energy - Sensing Trends and Disruptions Impacting the Energy Workforce
We're assembling an online advisory panel to explore the trends and disruptions impacting the energy workforce. Specifically, we'll discuss the technological, social, economic, demographic, environmental, and geopolitical shifts that are shaping the future workforce landscape within the energy industry.
The Future of the Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Workforce
As demand for skilled technology professionals increases, we want to explore the trends, challenges, and industry opportunities impacting the artificial intelligence and data science workforce.
The Future of LED Lighting and Control Systems for Industrial Facilities
As industrial and manufacturing facilities aim to maximize energy savings, reduce maintenance/installation costs, ensure safety and productivity, we want to explore what the industrial facility of the future will look like in the next 2-3 years.
The Future of Industrial Control Systems for Cyber Security
Industrial Control Systems Cyber Security
The Future of Cyber Threat Intelligence
Embedded threat intelligence for connected software and hardware with specific emphasis on IoT product developers.
The Future of Software-Defined Networking
The current and future networking landscape
Specifically, networking technologies -- high performance IP platforms for building comms and data networks in the enterprise. What trends, challenges and opportunities should vendors in this sector be aware of
The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Energy Workforce
Artificial Intelligence in the Energy industry - Implications for the Workforce
Adoption of Deep Learning for Industrial Inspection Machines
Adoption of deep learning and edge computing within the B2B Industrial inspection market.
Exploring the Future of Conversational AI
Conversation AI (think Chatbots), what are current chatbot capabilities, what is the future of chatbots and where can P&G leverage chatbots?
The Future of Cybersecurity in Smart Cities & Distributed Energy
With now millions of connected devices, it has become very tough for smart cities to defend from a cyber-attacks. Our goal is to build resilience into the system so attacks are identified early and their impacts are as mild as possible.

The focus is on protecting energy distribution systems of cities and where cyber attacks can occur so as to better identify how to create cyber-resilient cities. The two key aspects dive-deeper into to gathering insights
1. The major components of electrical generation and distribution (we can assume this is to generate 3MW of electricity, what assets, substations, etc.)
2. How are these components interconnected (if there are 20 assets, what level of redundancy is typical, what is their elasticity (ability to spread excess load from one to another), what is their breaking point etc.?

As a whole, the general business goal includes showing the current posture of real-time monitoring. The client seeks new ideas, understanding the energy landscape, and validating assumptions.
Future of Supply Chain in the Logistics & Transportation Industry
We are seeking to gain insights and perspectives in the specialty fuel services for the transportation and logistics industry (aerospace, marine, land transportation). We will explore the current market landscape of trends and digital disruptions; what's working for customers/what's not; and what needs to be true for a solution fitting of the future?
IoT Reducing Inventory Requirements
Leveraging the internet of things (IOT) to reduce inventory requirements across our supply chain
IoT and the Future of Supply Chain and Retail
Low cost sensor technology that can track displays in Retail stores – mass merch; supermarket; drug; dollar; convenience stores. Companies already worked with Shelfbucks company (Bluetooth tech.); Trax company (Software recognition); Also looked at RFID’s and QR codes /Bar codes. All technologies have cost issues when scaled but I do like Bluetooth as this is a passive technology that can be picked up by phone but sensors are too expensive.
Ship over 1MM displays a year so can’t afford an expensive sensor.Current technology solutions in market too expensive for large scale application. Sensors need to be below $2 and potentially picked up by smartphone.
Medical Device Knowledge Management System
How can Smith & Nephew capture, analyze, and retain knowledge to create a positive ROI?
Gas Pipeline Innovation for North Africa and the Middle East
What are market requirements for GE's cloud software solution for pipeline event detection and what are go-to-market approaches?
