KSEE 2018 Systems Engineering in the Digital Era

Keynote speakers

Dr Bhuvan Unhelkar

Big data Strategies for Agile Business

Big Data is characterized by 4 V’s : Volume, Velocity, Variety and Veracity. These characteristics in themselves are not sufficient to generate Value for organizations. Value is defined through Business Agility – the ability to make faster and more accurate business decisions based on the Analytics.

This keynote presentation argues for the phenomenal importance of a 5th V from Big Data, “V for Value” – and presents the outline of a Big Data Framework for Agile Business (BDFAB v2.5) as a holistic approach to adopting Big Data for business value.

Loek Vradenberg – CTO IBM

AI and Cognitive Technologies and how they are changing the way we work and live

Dan Mulholland

Safeguarding Legacy Control and Safety systems

Trinity Systems describes the challenges facing end users when considering how legacy systems can be protected against a new world threat. Baselining current process control and safety system functionality for upgrades or operational efficiency can allow the definition of normal operation patterns, to allow the identification of abnormal behavior for CyberSecurity monitoring support.

Maged Helmy

Big Data & Machine Learning in Computer Networks

In this seminar, we will discuss how BlueTree leverages the power of machine learning and advanced artificial intelligence techniques to predict when networks will fail and why they failed. Furthermore, with the advances in modern computing and development of smart algorithms, we will discuss how to utilize computer resources to process billions of data points in a matter of seconds.

Jason McFarlane

Autonomous Shipping – the technology, the challenges, and the journey ahead

Over the last few years, autonomous technology has frequently been in the headlines, mostly surrounding the automotive industry but more recently, and especially in Norway, surrounding the maritime industry. There has been a sudden explosion of autonomous vessel concepts and related initiatives starting with the announcement from Yara and KONGSBERG regarding the world’s first fully electric and autonomous container ship: Yara Birkeland. This presentation will give an introduction to the KONGSBERG perspective on autonomy and explore some of the important aspects of autonomous shipping including key technologies, challenges being faced, and a glimpse of some of the concepts that are announced.
