Talk Title:

Cloud Continuum for Distributed and Hybrid Digital Twins for Industry4.0 Applications

Abstract

The efficient exploitation of the cloud continuum (industrial cloud, edge cloud, 5G/6G base stations, fog nodes) is a key factor for future Industry4.0 applications, e.g., for manufacturing line control and reconfiguration, where QoS requirements on latency and scalability are crucial. The keynote aims at offering an overview of the state-of-the-art architectures and technologies in the field, with a specific focus on how to efficiently design and implement hybrid distributed digital twins over cloud continuum virtualized resources. Related and industrial-grade use cases from ongoing international projects will be depicted to practically ground the proposed architectural solutions

Talk topic: Data Science & Web Research: A Perfect Marriage

Abstract

Certainly, Data Science is the future because the world has trillions and trillions of unused yet very useful data, so world needs a lot of good data scientist to overcome this situation. Web development is forever as there will always be something called Face book, YouTube, Wikipedia, Google, etc may be with the same name as these or something new . There will always be a demand of good web developers. So let marry these together to get the best of the both world. We will present the integration of Data Science and Web development from every aspect and discuss how one can complement the other to help in development of web analytics. Real life examples using existing tools will be presented.
