NIDays Keynote

NIDays keynote presentations give attendees a first look at the latest, cutting-edge innovations for engineers and scientists using NI tools and technologies to accelerate productivity and drive rapid innovation across a wide variety of industries.

Morning Keynote: Impacting Today's Business

 

Presenter: To Be Announced.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Analog Data are no longer just trends, but are fast becoming a reality. We will present some of these new applications and technologies, and also show how these key themes are already influencing our businesses and economies today. We will take a look at how this gives rise to new trends like the convergence of technology, which allows innovative companies – like Tesla and Google in the automotive domain – to enter established markets with revolutionary technology. This keynote will highlight how you can ride the wave of this new reality for test, measurement and control.

Afternoon Keynote: A Glimpse into the Future

Richard Roberts, Academic Marketing Engineer, Tor Dam Eskildsen & Thomas Juul.

We are living through unprecedented times. The Internet of Things is profoundly impacting product design, manufacturing, education and infrastructure. However, contemporary technology must evolve to realise the true potential of the IoT. In this forward-looking keynote, we will be previewing future trends, demonstrating upcoming platforms, and celebrating tomorrow’s engineers.

Also, learn about Aarhus University's cutting edge research into ice algae. Not only are ice algae the main food source for life beneath the ice covered Arctic Ocean, they also significantly contribute to global CO2 absorption. Surprisingly, our knowledge of this important organism has been limited due to the need for bulky, high-budget research operations. Until now! Students from Aarhus University have designed and deployed DeepFreezeROV; a low-cost, aquatic robot, which navigates the harsh Arctic ocean whilst studying ice algae in-situ. The data collected by the robot is now helping to define sustainable fishing quotas and accurate global climate models.
