Speech Topics

Long Term Care Technology

By 2030, all baby boomers will be 65 or older; but is technology in the long-term care industry keeping pace with growing demand? This keynote will focus on eight technologies that could reshape long term care: augmented reality, robotics, virtual reality, telemedicine, telepsychiatry, wearables, artificial intelligence and smart homes. What are they, how are they being used, and what does the future hold?


The World Economic Forum has said “In the next 10 years the Internet of Things revolution will dramatically alter manufacturing, energy, agriculture, transportation and other industrial sectors of the economy which, together, account for nearly two-thirds of the global GDP.”  So what is the Internet of Things?

In this talk we’ll first go thru a five-layer framework to help business and technical people understand the current and future state of the art in IoT software.  While technology is interesting, how will it reshape enterprises that build machines and those that use machines? We’ll discuss how implementing an IoT strategy could easily double the revenues and quadruple the margins of any company that builds power, healthcare, agriculture, construction or transportation machines.  Finally, precision machines promise to reshape our planet. Developing economies around the planet have the opportunity to leapfrog current solutions and build the farms of the future, or a distributed energy grid or a next generation healthcare system.


You can’t go to thru any airport, or watch any sporting event without seeing the word “cloud computing”.   So what is cloud computing and why should I care?  This talk will start by describing cloud computing in a way you could explain to your Facebook friends.

We’ll cover six major categories starting at the network and moving our way up to the application layer.  While it’s good to understand cloud computing more importantly we’ll focus on how cloud computing will affect every industry from financial services to retail, from agriculture to power generation.


Over the last year as consumers we’ve seen some significant advances in artificial Intelligence.  Whether that’s Alexa voice recognition, Facebook facial recognition or seeing AlphaGo beat a human at Go, ten years earlier than anyone predicted the change is faster than many ever expected.

So why is this? and what does this mean for the enterprise computing.  This talk will start by identifying three significant changes that have enabled these amazing leaps.  We’ll then give you a short tutorial on neural networks, deep learning and the machine learning lifecycle (which by the way is not the same as a software development lifecycle).  Finally we’ll show you how the next generation of enterprise analytics will be based on AI and not BI.


While software and hardware technology has evolved at a meteoric rate over the past three decades, the more significant changes have been driven by economics and the resulting creation of new business models.  This talk will start by showing you seven key business models.

These models have completely reshaped the software industry.  As increasingly every business is becoming a software business we’ll conclude the talk to showing how these business models might change every industry from transportation to construction.“What makes Timothy special, is his deep know-how about manufacturing industries, the software business and the impact of analytics. I’ve seen dozens of IoT keynoters mostly contemplating about the impact of IoT using B2C examples. Tim instead meets the pain points of industry executives and professionals by offering well-founded insights on the mechanics behind the tremendous change in the industrial space. Tim’s keynote created an exciting atmosphere and a great basis for in depth discussion between all attendees.” ~ Thomas Rohrmann,
