Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, has been quoted as saying "change is the only constant" in life. Technology is certainly no exception and continues to rapidly shift and advance every day. As business leaders and experts in professional disciplines, it's incredibly important to stay up-to-date on what is new and on the cusp of the cutting-edge. These areas of technology, and being among the first to implement new ideas and solutions, are often where organizations can realize advantage over competition. LiveWorx 2020 featured many of these new concepts and technologies as part of the Emerging Tech track. Below are links to the video recordings and presentations for some of the top viewed sessions to-date from the Emerging Tech educational track.

Using AI and IoT for Business Continuity
Clara Hustad, Director Channel Marketing - Manufacturing, Transportation, & CPG, AT&T Business | Jason Inskeep, Director - 5G Center of Excellence, AT&T Business | Bradley Miller, Lead Product Marketing Manager, AT&T Business
In today’s new normal, business leaders are prioritizing staff and customer safety. Using computer vision, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, see how you can harness near-real-time situational awareness and data analysis to efficiently monitor assets and proactively manage day-to-day operations.
Why You've Got it All Wrong: The Human Connection
Elizabeth Bieniek, Director of Innovation, Cisco Collaboration, Cisco
There's a fundamental flaw with the reasoning that computer vision (CV), machine learning (ML), and AI will revolutionize how humans communicate. And it has to do with the word "human." While human-to-AI interaction will change drastically as technology evolves, human-to-human interaction will emerge as the single limiting factor to revolutions in how humans communicate and do business with each other. There are certain tenets of human interaction such as body language, gestures, eye contact, involuntary reaction to micro-expressions, the ability to establish trust, and more that have remained impressively constant through the onslaught of technological advancements. Yet, despite the overwhelming importance of this single criteria, human behavior often takes a backseat to the technology itself. Watch this session recording to explore these unwavering interaction tenets, and what user behavior shifts we can realistically expect to see over the next 5-10 years as CV, ML and AI take the limelight in communication advancements.
Robots to the Rescue It's a Tough Job But Somebody's Got to Do It
Nicola OByrne, Strategic Marketing Manager Connected Motion and Robotics, Analog Devices, Inc.
Concerns about robots replacing human jobs are widespread. But aren’t they also saving humans from dangerous and undesirable tasks? Global trends are commanding more automation than ever before, not only in manufacturing but also in new markets and applications. While robots are able to take on more complex tasks, they still don’t match the power of human cognition. They excel at repetitive and non-cognitive tasks and can perform physical work for extended periods. Since they don’t get sick, they’re perfectly suited for healthcare settings where injury or illness are risks. These dangerous and unstimulating tasks free up humans to perform the cognitive tasks they do best.
Enabling the Next Generation of Connected Robots
Eugene Demaitre, Senior editor, The Robot Report, WTWH Media and Dev Singh, Sr. Director, Business Development, and global head of Robotics, Drones, and Intelligent Machines, Qualcomm Technologies Inc.
The world of robotics is rapidly changing, with connectivity and computing ability becoming as important as autonomy. Technologies like 5G, on-device AI, and heterogenous computing are poised to transform the way robots think, operate, and behave – all the way from small consumer robots that fit in one’s palm to large-scale industrial machines on factory floors. Learn about the future of robotics in the 5G era.
