Intelligent Infrastructure - The Opportunity of Our Time

Intelligent Infrastructure will enable mobility 4.0 & reach vision zero, eliminate the digital divide, accelerate economic growth, create millions of jobs, and build stronger more resilient communities. This Build-Out will be the most significant transformation of our infrastructure since Eisenhower's Interstate Highway program in the 1950's

Panel Session : Bringing Intelligent Infrastructure to Life - Roadmap for Optimizing Ancillary Revenue to Fund Infrastructure: The Ohio Opportunity Corridor

The Ohio Opportunity Corridor is a prime example of how digitization and electrification could be built into new infrastructure while presenting a robust return on investment for private financiers. No longer a cost center, when it is finalized the digitized and electrified 83-mile platform will have seven highly robust revenue streams – from high voltage electricity to rural broadband, to 5G and sensors for autonomous trucking.

Data Spaces: Enabling New Era of Data Sharing

The term “data space” refers to a type of data relationship between trusted partners, each of whom apply the same high standards and rules to the storage and sharing of their data. However, of key importance to the concept of a data space is that data are not stored centrally but at source and are therefore only shared (via semantic interoperability) when necessary. A data space is the sum of all its participants – which may be data providers, users and intermediaries. Data spaces can be nested and overlapping, so that a data provider, for example, can participate in several data spaces all at once. Data sovereignty and trust are essential for the working of data spaces and the relationships between participants. The software required to implement data spaces runs on edge cloud infrastructures.

Track A - Infrastructure Investment

Whilst the IIJA will release an unpresented $1.2 Trillion for infrastructure investment, these government funds will be further leveraged as seed money for infrastructure projects accross the country. These projects will utilize a variety of structures including public private partnerships to wrap in investment from private and other public entities. This session looks at the investment strategies and financing tools that will potentially be deployed to being intelligent infrastructure to life.

Responsible Intelligent Infrastructure - Clarifying Your Responsibilities in the New Data Age

As AI becomes more prevalent in the lives of citizens there are serious concerns about how AI applications should be governed and how transparency can be enacted. Mechanisms for accountability and recourse to remediation when algorithmic decisions cause harm need to be developed across industries. This presentation will look at some case studies of constructive measures to build trust that can also change the nature of AI applications, companies that are building solutions to address ethical issues and the possible futures that could arise from organizational or institutional changes that promote fair and just AI across numerous industries

The Edge Economy and the Future of Connected Communities

The first three generations of Internet growth, including the advent of cloud computing, connected people at home, then businesses, then people and businesses whether stationary or mobile. The result is an Internet that serves over 8 billion people and 13 billion connected devices. The Fourth Internet will be orders of magnitude larger. The consequence of this growth will result in the single largest Internet economy in history - the edge economy – eclipsing $4T annually by 2030.

To serve the projected market for connected things, the architecture of the Fourth Internet will be different. It will require unprecedented low-latency, high-performance compute and network capacity that are interconnected at the ‘Edge’ where delivery, utility and commerce must be securely decentralized. The era of IoT will power augmented reality, empower decision-making via AI and machine learning, operate cars and increase public safety. 

But to realize this vision will require both a fundamental re-thinking of the architecture of the Internet and, at the same time, a full embrace of Industry 4.0 infrastructure as a national priority. 

The keynote will cover these topics in the context of how helping secure our nation’s future is tied to the innovation that comes from public-private partnerships (P3s) - and why leveraging decentralized technology is essential to building the future of the Internet economy.
