Rob Creemers has been active in the technology sector since 1980. After having worked as a production control and IT manager at Siemens in South Africa for some time, he returned to the Netherlands in 1987. After a few years as a Software support manager at Olivetti, he founded his own company TechnoTrends where he, as a trend watcher and market analyst, closely monitored all developments in the field of ICT, energy, globalization, population growth, aging and climate problems.
In seminars and conferences at home and abroad, Rob presents his views in a penetrating, original and contemporary (highly multimedia) way. He examines the consequences for today's society, in which no one can escape the super-fast developments in this extremely dynamic world because "far from my bed" no longer exists.
Challenge-Based Learning in TU/e innovation Space
Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) forms the core of the TU/e educational vision for 2030. It is an innovative type of learning where students work on real open-ended challenges that have a direct impact on our world, and where students become the owners of their learning. In addition to deepening disciplinary knowledge and skills in context, students learn to collaborate with various disciplines and stakeholders and deal with uncertainty in complex, open processes. TU/e innovation Space experiments with this new type of learning. The presentation will give a snapshot into the future highlighting some of the educational innovations on Interdisciplinary Challenge-Based Learning.
The EIT Digital Entrepreneurial Academy: Future of Education for leading the digital transformation
Leading digital transformation requires a new generation of professionals that can combine skills and competences to work international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral. In addition, innovation in digital technologies, in particular for deep tech innovation, is faster, dynamic and aligned to a business mindset. The presentation will introduce the vision of the EIT Digital Entrepreneurial Academy and how our efforts are aligned with the needs of Europe to lead the digital innovation.
Portfolio Management and Digital Finance
New and powerful software makes it possible to use more and more data in the organisation that can be involved in decision making. Decision support software like EY Realm is developed to make it easier for management to make substantiated, integrated and agile decisions in a transparent and accountable way. This means that organisation must take action to structure their processes, data collection and support a multidisciplinary approach to leverage the value of the software. Let’s explore how decision support software can work and how to assess organisation readiness.
Digital Enabler - Unlocking the potential of data and IoT
A Smart City is a city that can timely ‘sense’ its operations and act accordingly. If appropriately processed, sensors and stored data can enable a City to become smart and revolutionise its operations, from garbage collection to water consumption. Digital Enabler is a single point of knowledge giving value to City’s operation.
Designing a social robot to support health care professionals in elderly homes
The shortage of health care personnel is widely known. Nursing staff the domain of elderly care is experiencing a heavy workload that comes at the cost of the quality of care. Since January 2019, we are working on a robot that can alleviate the workload of healthcare professionals. The SARA robot is designed to act as a colleague to the staff members in nursing homes to support them in caring for their clients. How to design a social robot that can support health care professionals in their daily jobs? I will tell you about our lessons learned during this talk.
The MyBraincoach app: a new tool for dementia risk reduction
The prevalence of dementia is expected to rise globally in the next decades, with a doubling or even tripling of current figures. The G8 countries and others such as the World Health Organization state that primary prevention through lifestyle changes must be the key response to offset or at least postpone dementia onset. Maastricht University and the Alzheimer Center Limburg ran a 1-year campaign to raise public awareness for the link between lifestyle and dementia. For this, they developed the MijnBreincoach (‘MyBraincoach’) app to nudge people and motivate them to engage in a brain-healthy lifestyle.
Speech Analysis for Clinical Trials in Alzheimer’s Disease: Novel Digital Markers for Screening & Monitoring of Patients
Presentation the X-KIC EIT-Health & EIT-Digital project DeepSpA: Deep Speech Analysis for Clinical Trials in Alzheimer Disease. Demo of the remote use case: telephone-based clinician-supported neurocognitive testing with the ∆elta platform (www.ki-elements.de). Outlook towards the fully automated telephone-based testing for better scalability. Preliminary results from machine learning experiments to automatically screen for patients at risk will be presented.
Proces Mining in logistics
Vanderlande is the global market leader for value-added logistic process automation at airports, and in the parcel market. The company is also a leading supplier of process automation solutions for warehouses. In this presentation, Boris Nikolov, a Process Improvement Engineer will tell us about two case studies on how process mining can provide insights in logistics processes. The first one is from a leading parcel customer while the second one is from one of the world’s new aviation hubs.
Boris is an alumni of our very own EIT Digital Master School which he graduated from in 2015. His major was in Service Design and Engineering with an entry University of Trento and an exit Eindhoven University of Technology.
The use of data in maintenance and asset management
A few lines appealing my presentation: In maintenance processes a lot of that has been collected. With new sensors even more data can be collected. Since a few years, together with new algorithms this data can be transformed to information with can help to come to condition based maintenance. The foundation World Class Maintenance is performing projects (within field labs) to create smart maintenance whereby relevant data will be used.
Lessons learned with IoT & Blockchain in Digital Industry
We all know the promise from Industry 4.0 and are convinced it is an all connected world in 10 years from now. As a large, midsize or small company, how do I start? Where is the business case? Based on project examples we will demonstrate the status of the market and lessons learned.
The centralized internet - A blessing or a curse for security?
The Internet started off as a network of networks in the hands of many. Today, however, most of its infrastructure as well as its services are highly concentrated and under control of a few enterprises, often outside of Europe. One might think that this development is harmful for the security of the Internet, e.g. by creating single point of failures. We will discuss, whether this is actually the case, if this creates new opportunities, and how future security threats affect centralized and decentralized networks and services alike.
How Digitalized Certificates can transform the way we are doing business?
Why do organizations and people care so much getting certified? Most likely because it’s their license to do business. It’s their way to provide trust! Nowadays certificates are still based on paper or on an electronic pdf. We will explore how digital certificates are different from existing methods and how a digital certificate can be built? But far more important let us explore how digitalized certificates can transform the way we are doing business?
Edge AI - a key enabler for next generation IOT devices
Increased computing power of embedded processors, deep learning ASICs and optimized AI algorithms are enabling machine learning on embedded devices. This intelligent way of processing complex sensor data enables machine learning on intelligent devices and connection-less decision making. In this way network andwidth and cloud storage can be significantly optimized.
The EIT projects EMBAI and DRIVETRUST will be presented in this talk. Embedded AI has a key role in these projects.
