Welcome and Introduction to the 2014 Forum.
Hear IPaT's industry partners discuss their ongoing research.
Dual keynote presentation from Kwanza Hall, District 2 Councilman, City of Atlanta and Jia Chen, Director, Health Solutions, Smarter Cities, IBM.
Cities are becoming increasingly important in the lives of their citizens as well as economic engines for their regions as well as countries. As data is increasingly available from every minute aspect of city life, and ubiquitous connectivity can provide all of it to central locations, how will this impact the daily life of a city as well as the lives of its citizens. Traffic, municipal services, health, play; what aspects of daily life will be transformed by this change.

Beth Mynatt, Executive Director, Institute for People and Technology will describe the future of the "Connected Life" drawing examples from IPaT research programs.
The Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC) is an annual event produced by GT-RNOC and the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT). This unique competition is open to all Georgia Tech students and is run throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. Winners of the Fall competition will be awarded and highlights from the winners of the Spring competition will be showcased.

Welcome and Day 2 Overview
Panel: Technology for Patients at Home: A Global, Current Health Informatics Perspective
This panel will examine the role that patient-facing technologies can play in improving the outcomes and efficiency of healthcare in the US. It will explore how cutting-edge research and development in areas such as predictive analytics for use in care delivery, behavior imaging, the use of sensors and other data to observe and understand human behavior in the home, novel means of monitoring the status of patients using smart devices, and mobile personal health records are having an impact on the healthcare industry.

Lunch and networking.
Hear IPaT's industry partners discuss their ongoing research
Jeff Leddy, CEO, Verizon Telematics will deliver a keynote presentation.
Technology is increasingly becoming available in cars and in roadways to provide real time data of traffic and car performance and behavior. Data transmission inside the car already occurs between sensors, inter-car communications on an ad-hoc basis is coming soon, as well as communications up to the cloud. This is another step on the road to fully autonomous driving. What sorts of applications will this enable in the near term? Will the car become another node at an equal basis to your home and office? What infrastructure improvements are needed short term to support new applications? How to we get from here to autonomous cars?
Over 100 research demonstrations from Georgia Tech faculty, students, and staff.
Closing reception at Technology Square Research Building.
