Keynote Speakers Address the Trends Currently Shaping the IoT Landscape
With the rapid evolution of the IoT, developers and IoT leaders need to be regularly updated on the latest development techniques across emerging technologies. This year, Works With covers everything from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to Matter and LPWAN and explores the latest developments in security and AI/ML. As listed in the Works With agenda, the keynotes are:
- Opening Keynote: Silicon Labs CEO Matt Johnson will share what Silicon Labs is doing to equip developers to accelerate their designs to market, including a sneak peek at Silicon Labs' next-generation platform and improvements to the developer experience.
- Matter Development is Accelerating - What's the Latest?: Join Parks Associates' Director of Research Jennifer Kent as she moderates a panel of experts from Amazon Alexa, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), Google Nest, Samsung SmartThings, and Silicon Labs to discuss the growth of Matter and where it is going. Now in its third iteration, this candid, no-holds-barred panel will share statistics, examples, and lessons learned since Matter's launch late last year.
- Charting the Connected Future: Daniel Cooley, Silicon Labs CTO, will discuss what's needed to achieve the full potential of cloud-connected embedded computing – and the challenges ahead. Daniel will be joined by guests who are experts in building the trust, teams, and governance needed for the IoT to flourish.
- IoT for Good: Silicon Labs Senior Vice President Manish Kothari will showcase real-world examples of the IoT being harnessed for the greater good, whether caring for the planet, our health, or other novel uses we would never have imagined ten years ago. Join us for this crowd-favorite keynote.
Session Tracks Educate on LPWAN, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Matter, AI/ML, and IoT Trends
Silicon Labs' breadth and expertise covers the entire spectrum of wireless technologies, and developers can learn from that expertise across six tracks comprising over 40 technical sessions. Works With 2023 attendees can self-select sessions from all six:
- LPWAN: Attendees will enhance and build new skills around Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN), with sessions on developing smart city and large-scale outdoor applications, advanced features to look for in sub-GHz networks, and more.
- Wi-Fi: Sessions on interoperability, power management, and security will help developers learn new techniques to build new devices and applications for one of the most common wireless technologies.
- Bluetooth: This track features technical courses for Bluetooth developers interested in implementing location services with high-accuracy distance measurements (HADM), developing secure, user-friendly medical devices, and more.
- Matter: Matter was released in the Fall of 2022. This track will feature sessions from the developers, manufacturers, and brands driving the standard forward.
- AI/ML: With the rise of generative AI, the IoT is poised to become much smarter. This track will host sessions on developing successful AI/ML applications, predictive learning techniques, and building ML into IoT applications.
- IoT Trends: The explosion of IoT has created several trends that affect every IoT application, whether for a smart home, a medical device, a commercial office building, or any other application. This track will explore topics like security, energy efficiency, and the supply chain.
All sessions, including the keynotes, will be available on-demand shortly after their premiere.
