Smart Industry is where industry professionals will be able to connect with the companies and individuals utilizing the Industrial Internet via interactive exhibits, testbeds, and demonstrations, as well as through expert-led content sessions.
In his keynote, "The Industrial Strength Internet," William Ruh will discuss the notion of the Industrial Internet, emerging waves of industrial-strength innovation and technology, opportunities for big gains in productivity and efficiency by reducing unplanned downtime, and GE's strategic decision to focus on software and analytic-based services.
