Metaverse – threat or opportunity for the French-German industry? – Panel Discussion at Bits&Pretzels in Munich, Sept. 25, 3:55pm

Besides having a booth at Europe’s leading founders festival Bits&Pretzels 2022, the GFA is joining the La French Tech Munich Stage on Sunday September 25 with a panel discussion on “Metaverse – threat or opportunity for the French-German industry?

When talking about the Metaverse most people immediately think about Facebook and their rebranding to “Meta” in early 2022. And indeed the company announced working on a VR social platform. But that is the keyword, VR or virtual reality! Metaverse is a term that is still vague and complex and can be brought into context with virtual reality, cyberspace and smart spaces, because the Metaverse is still being built and therefor still to be defined in detail. “The Wired” states, that this is because the term doesn’t really refer to any one specific type of technology, but rather a broad (and often speculative) shift in how we interact with technology. And as you may guess, this opens the door to a lot of opportunities and dangers in the process. In our panel discussion we want to share some of these pros and cons to help Germany and France shaping the future of a (European) Metaverse.

Therefore, we invited three wonderful speakers that will join our moderator Paul-Guilhem Meunier (GFA) on stage:

You are cordially invited to watch the recording!

Abstract

The purpose of the keynote is to give the audience all the keys to understand the AWS cloud and the associated value proposition regarding information security. Guillaume will first introduce AWS and it’s peculiar vision of cloud computing. He then will explain how to build resillient and secure applications on AWS while presenting the key security principles of cloud security. Guillaume will talk about self-healing systems, high-availibity, serverless,

Abstract keynote: In a context of industrial evolution, reorganization of production means, a need for industrial agility to meet increasingly unpredictable customer demand, and the transition to Industry 4.0, it is becoming important to be able to adapt production according to demand and to anticipate issues.

The Digital Twin has been designed to overcome such issues by providing a clone of the real factory on which we can perform tests and try new designs digitally. This talk will focus on the use of Digital Twin in industry and its pairing with VR and AR, and an exemple of implementation in a boiler factory.

About Pierre Bégout

Final year PHD student at the campus Brest of IMT Atlantique. He is working on Digital Twin in industry for the training of operators.

[#WisdomWednesday] GFA Winter School on Future IoT with the Keynote “Prototyping on Oniro” by Philippe Coval

On Thursday, Dec 2, 2021, at 9:00 am CET, Philippe Coval gave a keynote entitled “Prototyping on Oniro” at the 4th Future-IoT.org PhD school that is under the motto “IoT meets Cyber and Security”.

You are cordially invited to watch the recording!

ALSO CHECK OUT THE FUTURE IOT SUMMER SCHOOL 2022, AUG 29 – SEPT 2 IN BERLIN & ONLINE: https://school.future-iot.org/

Abstract

Based on his experiences, Philippe will explain the gap between a maker prototype and a sustainable ecosystem that would match market’s standards.

Publishing a code under “FLOSS” license is a good start but it’s usually not enough for project sustainability, like grabbing some component for “free” will have a cost soon or later.

The opensource philosophy is to not reinvent the wheel, so your value will probably work on common base, but choose wisely!
What does this platform provide in term of terms of security, IP compliance? What is the cost of hardware enablement or just software maintenance ?

Talk will be illustrated with some demos from previous Automotive “CampOSV” sessions in Rennes, the Oniro project will be also introduced and how prototyping can be essential for the development of foundations of a bigger ambitious ecosystem.

Oniro project is a decentralized Operating system which aims to defragment software development by using the best components and practices already adopted by community and industry
(like Linux or Zephyr kernel and Yocto’s bitbake tool).

Starting by doing is a good way to learn, working alone can be quick but working together will bring you further.

Everyone is welcome now to join the oniro project at https://oniroproject.org/

About Philippe Coval

Philippe Coval is a professional OpenSource Engineer,
who has been supporting FLOSS communities since late 1990ies. Over decades, he has contributed to many projects from Operating Systems (Debian, Tizen) to IoT frameworks (IoTivity, WebThings) and more.

He also advocated for FLOSS at various occasions (FOSDEM, ELC…), or shared proof of concepts online.
Currently contributing to the Oniro project he is always open for potential cooperation.
