Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
On October 18, the annual Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) will focus on the intersection of big data analytics and wireless. In its 11th year, TWS brings together wireless industry leaders and entrepreneurs, engineers, academics and students, to discuss research, brainstorm innovation, and collectively work to move the wireless space forward in Texas and beyond.
Co-hosted each year by the Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), in the IC2 Institute at The University of Texas at Austin (UT), and UT’s Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), TWS will be held all day Friday, October 18, on the UT campus in the O’Donnell Building for Applied Computational Engineering and Sciences. Registration is now open at http://texaswirelesssummit.com/.
TWS continues its tradition of providing a forum for industry leaders and academics to discuss emerging wireless technologies and business models that will shape the industry over the upcoming two to three years. The Summit has direct access to cutting edge research and innovations from industry leaders, investors, academics and startups. The Texas Wireless Summit is a keynote and panel driven discussion that enables the speakers and audience to engage and drive the conversation forward.
With a theme of Disrupting Wireless with Big Data Analytics, the 2013 TWS features keynotes from Tasso Argyros, CTO of Aster Teradata, a leading global big data analytic technology company, and Per Enge, Director of Stanford's GPS Laboratory. Mr. Argyros will discuss how data analytics are used to gain an advantage over competitors. Professor Enge will forecast the role of reliable location data in wireless analytics.
Other speakers exploring the possible disruptive effects and limitations of big data analytics on wireless represent Deutsche Bank, Huawei, Phunware, Verizon, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Cambridge, as well as speakers from UT.
The morning panel on Data Analytics and Wireless, Managing the Tradeoffs, includes panelists from Cisco, Deutsche Bank, IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center and National Instruments. The afternoon panel on Location and Data Analytics, What is Disruptive, includes panelists from IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center, Ixia, Privateer Capital, Stanford University and University of Cambridge.
This year’s TWS sponsors include the Austin Chamber, Empirix, Gemalto, RCR Wireless, and Rohde & Schwarz. Mobile Monday Austin again participates, hosting its fourth Startup Showcase during the Summit. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available.
