That crazy future we were promised in the science fiction stories is slowly starting to show up.

More than half of major new industry, military, consumer processes and systems will incorporate some element of inter-connectivity by 2020. “Instrumenting” physical things with sensors and connecting them to other things — devices, systems and people. By 2025 the global worth of this tech is projected at $6.2 trillion, with the maximum value from healthcare ($2.5 trillion) and manufacturing ($2.3 trillion).

This interconnected technology, leveraging advancements in unmanned systems, sensors, machine intelligence and artificial intelligence will covert data to actionable intelligence in ways never anticipated – both with rewarding potential, and increasingly, uncomfortable risk.

The NMTC Disruptive Tech Summit 2.1 brings together the expertise, examples and education to best comprehend how to navigate profitably and securely through these evolving technologies, while understanding the future skill sets.

The summit will address these swiftly emerging technologies:
(These topics dovetail with the Army’s Internet of Battlefield Things (IOBT))

  1. Application of Video Analytics Through Artificial Intelligence – Keith Riser, US Army, RDECOM CERDEC I2WD
  2. Recognizing Faces in the Dark – Dr. Sean Hu, US Army Research Lab
  3. Super-Resolution Image from Low Resolution Cameras – Dr. Susan Young, US Army Research Lab
  4. Existing Cameras and Sensors used for Enhanced Surveillance – Eran Jedwab, Jedvice, LLC
  5. Detection of Gases and Volatile Organic Compounds – Dr. Abhishek Motayed, N5 Sensors, Inc.
  6. Internet of Things (IOT), the latest and where are we going – Todd Marks, Mindgrub Technologies
  7. APG Tech Transfer offices opportunities available for technology transfer – Tom Mulkern, US Army Research Lab

as they increasingly converge under a single digital disruption umbrella, so rapidly, their   potential uses are beyond the reach of speculation.

Of immediate concern, as one example describes, is exploiting the sensors (e.g., accelerometer, gyroscope, microphone, light sensor, etc.) on an IoT device, attackers can extract information from the device, transfer malware to a device, or trigger a malicious activity to compromise the device, or the autonomous vehicle not sensing a pedestrian in the roadway in Arizona.

On the positive side, a mobile app using specific sensors along with an embedded machine learning model, analyses the sound waves of a baby’s cries to detect asphyxia, a pre-cursor to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Darker futures will likely prevail. Internet-connected offices/battlefields/operating rooms, autonomous vehicles (air, sea, land, space), pacemakers, dialysis machines, and robots all producing data captured on an ever-more granular level — would become our currency, and threats such as hacking would extend to even more intimate areas of our lives.
