Intelligent factories of the future
Brian Bailey is teaching a free week-long online class called "Intelligent Embedded Systems for the New Era of Industrial Apps" at EE Times University.
Just when you think you understand a new concept it seems to already be blasé and replaced by something else. For those of you just catching up on the concept of cloud computing, I have news for you. Cloud computing was just a small part of a much bigger trend that encompasses the Internet of Things. The world is moving from a concept of computing being the center of attention to communicating computers and everything that entails. It has to do with sensors driving data to computers, about the intelligent use of huge amounts of data to create knowledge or intelligence and to use that to drive modern factories, power distribution, and even deliver to us ever more useful smart phones and autonomous cars.
I'll be giving a class on that subject in a couple of weeks titled "Intelligent Embedded Systems for the New Era of Industrial Apps" as part of the EE Times University. Each class will consist of a 30-minute lecture followed by a chat session.
Part 1: Introduction: Understanding the Connected Factory of the Future & Next-Gen Industrial Apps
Part 2: Four Pillars of Intelligent Industrial Apps: Security, Manageability, Connectivity & Performance
Part 3: Rethinking Embedding Processing: The Bridge to Ivy Bridge
Part 4: Apps Development Utilizing the Partner Ecosystem of Intelligent Solution
Part 5: Case Study: Highlighting a Successful Design Example
November 26th through 30th at noon eastern time, 9am pacific. Sign up click here and I hope to see you in the chat sessions.
