8:00am-8:30am Registration, Breakfast and Networking

8:30am-8:35am Welcome from Board Chairman, Jeremy Udovich

8:35am-9:35am IoT Case Study - Badger Meter:

Badger Meter was a pioneer in wireless metering and one of the first in the US to push cellular as a broad option in the utility space.  Kristie Anderson, Marketing Manager for the Utility Services Business, will share how their connected metering journey evolved from being marketed as a SaaS product and into being called a NaaS (Network as a Service) product to remove some of the fear of adoption by their customers.

9:35am-10:35am Designing Trustworthy IoT

In a world of 25 billion connected devices and 450 exabytes of data, the lines are blurred between informative and creepy, smart and invasive, efficient and vulnerable. Even if you’re not breaking laws when designing or using IoT, the public relations consequences of mistakes by you or your suppliers can be significant. 

In this session, Sarah Alt, the founder and CEO of the Ethical AI Consortium (EAIC) will review the European Commission guidelines for trustworthy artificial intelligence, how these guidelines mirror those proposed in an Executive Order in December 2020, and where these guidelines are being used to develop industry standards for advanced automation, analytics and algorithmic decision making.

10:35am-11:00am Networking Break

11:00am-12:00pm Managing the Supply Chain in Today's Dynamic Markets 

Visiting from AVNET's Phoenix, Arizona location, VP of Operations and Supply Chain, Richard Diaz, and Bill Ogden, Director of Supply Chain Business Development, will share how global disruptions are affecting your supply in building your IoT products. How does this affect your business and how can you be prepared?
