A Smarter Brain for Your Train…
A Smarter Brain for Your Train…
Have you ever felt overloaded by too much sensory input? The results can be problematic, even risky if you’re driving at the time. The same holds true for trains, ships, oil rigs, and many other industrial assets. The data processing challenges on these complex machines are growing rapidly as the number of sensors increases; yet so are the opportunities to transform operations by using all the available data effectively. A modern locomotive, for example, has as many as 200 sensors generating more than a billion data points per second.

Improving Vending Machine Profitability with the Internet of Things (IoT)
Improving Vending Machine Profitability with the Internet of Things (IoT)
The vending industry is undergoing a sea change, taking advantage of new technologies to go beyond just delivering snacks to creating a new retail location. Intelligent vending machines can be found in many public locations as well as company facilities, selling different types of goods and services, including even computer accessories, gold bars, tickets, and office supplies. With increasing sophistication, they may also provide time- and location-based data pertaining to sales, inventory, and customer preferences. But at the end of the day, vending machine operators know greater profitability is driven by higher sales and lower operating costs.

Connected Transportation: A Smarter Brain for Your Train with Intel
Connected Transportation: A Smarter Brain for Your Train with Intel
A modern locomotive, for example, has as many as 200 sensors generating more than a billion data points per second. Vibration sensors surround critical components, video cameras scan the track and cab, while other sensors monitor RPM, power, temperature, the fuel mix, exhaust characteristics, and more.Most of today’s locomotives lack sufficient on-board processing power to make full use of all this data. To make matters worse, the data from different subsystems, such as the brakes, fuel system, and engine, remain separate, stored in isolated “boxes” that prevent unified analysis. The data is available, but the technology needed to process it in the most effective manner is not. As new sensors are added to the machine, the problem escalates.

Acquiring Quality Talent
Acquiring Quality Talent
The primary challenge faced by Intel was of employer brand perception. Being perceived as only a hardware employer, the need of the hour was to create career attractiveness for software professionals. With tremendous competition from multinationals as well as local players, it was crucial for Intel to develop a long-term brand awareness and recruitment strategy that would allow them to recognize, engage, nurture and finally bring onboard talented software professionals.Establishing a relationship with passive professionals and creating attractiveness and excitement for software openings was a challenge. Intel needed a solution to engage this passive pool of talent and make them aware of the opportunities that exist at Intel to create a proactive talent pipeline.

Higher Ambient Data Center Temperatures Reduce Costs
Higher Ambient Data Center Temperatures Reduce Costs
As a pioneering IT enabler and technology driver, Intel’s objective was to demonstrate to clients that the modern data center operating environment does not require the level of cooling traditionally thought necessary to guarantee reliable performance. Given the significant energy cost and capital expense associated with cooling technology, there would be considerable potential for dramatically reducing TCO by designing and building data center facilities that run at a higher ambient temperature.Demonstrating the validity of this approach required an accurate and straightforward way to scientifically prove how TCO could be reduced without business risk or compromising IT performance. Intel needed a dependable solution that would rapidly allow a detailed assessment of the entire data center environment under varying workloads and conditions, holistically and at an individual component level.

Eco-Friendly, Engaging SAVORTEX Transforms the IoT
Eco-Friendly, Engaging SAVORTEX Transforms the IoT
Of the 70 million corporate washrooms, 20 percent are equipped with environmentally unfriendly, inefficient, and unhygienic hand-dryers and around 80 percent offer expensive paper towels that create three million tons of waste. As such, reducing building management costs, boosting facility efficiencies, and cutting energy use is very lucrative. SAVORTEX has built the world's first IoT-enabled messaging hand-dryer to disrupt this inefficient sector and transform corporate washrooms into smart spaces. Built on Intel® technology, the SAVORTEX AdDryer* uses the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver waste savings, alert cleaners to washroom needs based on usage, and engage consumers with tailored, high-definition video messages, allowing enterprises to transform costly commercial washrooms into connected, hygienic, and sustainable revenue-producing assets.ChallengesIngrained issues: High costs, inefficient maintenance, and energy consumption in washrooms make them difficult to manage. SAVORTEX wanted to solve multiple problems at once.Excessive waste: The prevalent drying choice of expensive paper towels significantly impacts the environment in both manufacture and disposal.Status quo: Conventional brushed-motor hand-dryers are energy-hungry and have a short life-expectancy so are costly to run, but finding budget to deploy new solutions on the necessary scale can be difficult.

Wearables for Connected Workers
Wearables for Connected Workers
Together, Honeywell and Intel have developed a IoT proof of concept (PoC) for the Connected Worker. The Connected Worker can take many forms - factory laborer, mine worker, first responder, firefighters and more. For each environment and worker role, a different selection of sensors may be appropriate to provide the most meaningful IoT-fueled dataset to represent that individual worker asset.As with most IoT solutions, it is critical to avoid being overwhelmed by a steady stream of meaningless data. Rather, it is essential to send select actionable intelligence to the cloud for visualization and customized alert notifications.The downside is that data from individual wearable devices - if viewed independently - can potentially cause false alarms and contribute to inefficiencies in a manpower as a result. Fusing sensor technology with big data processing (hub/gateway), analytics - all in the cloud - is the key to improving local intelligence as well as remote visualization of actionable intelligence.

GenoSpace Boosts Population Analytics and Application Performance
GenoSpace Boosts Population Analytics and Application Performance
GenoSpace, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a fastgrowing company that offers cloud-based software services designed to be HIPAA-compliant and applied across research, clinical development, pathology, and clinical care. The company’s offerings include data integration, modeling, analysis, interpretation, visualization, and collaboration capabilities for genomic and other biomedical data. Since maintaining the confidentiality of human genetic data is of paramount importance to GenoSpace, the company has made security a top priority. In an environment where breaches involving healthcare data have reached alarming levels, GenoSpace understands the costly business impact of noncompliance with HIPAA patient privacy regulations and industry-leading data security practices. For example, the Identity Theft Resource Center’s 2014 annual list of security breaches points out that the medical/healthcare sector accounted for more than 42.5% of all the breaches listed, topping all other categories. Since reporting requirements began, the US Department of Health and Human Services has tracked 944 incidents involving approximately 30 million individuals. Along with the persistence and enormity of this problem comes financial fallout. For example, in its study, 2014 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis, the Ponemon Institute estimated that the average cost of a data breach in 2014 was $3.5 million, an increase of 15% over 2013. Additionally, the average cost per record across all sectors also increased, from $188 to $201—and the per capita cost for healthcare was the highest across all industries at $316 per patient. And the typical fine for a data breach runs up to $1.5 million per incident. The cost of breaches to the healthcare sector overall is estimated at $5.6 billion annually.
