Mitsubishi Electric: IIC Approves Factory Automation Platform as a Service (FA PaaS) Testbed ProposedEdge computing via local Edge controllers allows uniterrupted, high speed collection, filtering and processing of real time data line side. Initial fast reactions can be initiated with the full data sets also being sent to associated cloud systems for further analysis. This processing at two layers respects the data integrity but allows the collected data to be processed as live and historical instances. The challenge is how to collect the data from diverse sources without interrupting the existing processes but also being able to span "brown field" systems where there may not even be any existing communication or data capture functions.

Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Watson received the first place prize of $1 million. Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of disk storage including the full text of Wikipedia, but was not connected to the Internet during the game. For each clue, Watson's three most probable responses were displayed on the television screen. Watson consistently outperformed its human opponents on the game's signaling device, but had trouble in a few categories, notably those having short clues containing only a few words. In February 2013, IBM announced that Watson software system's first commercial application would be for utilization management decisions in lung cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in conjunction with health insurance company WellPoint. IBM Watson's former business chief Manoj Saxena says that 90% of nurses in the field who use Watson now follow its guidance.Emulate 3DEmulate3D develops cost-effective software products that facilitate the demonstration, understanding, and sale of Automated Material Handling Systems, and their efficient market deployment, support and maintenance.Year founded: 2004ME-Automation Projects (Mitsubishi Electric)ME-Automation Projects delivers turnkey I&C systems, consisting of the entire field instrumentation, the switchgear, the remote control and control technology with the process management system PMSX pro and the relevant services such as project management, engineering, installation, commissioning, service and maintenance.ICONICS, INC.ICONICS is an award-winning independent software developer offering real-time visualization, HMI/SCADA, manufacturing intelligence and a suite of analytics solutions for operational excellence.
