Peggy Smedley, IoT Industry Expert, Specialty Publishing Media

Peggy introduces the topic of quantum computers, as it relates to the cloud. She says quantum computers can perform complex molecular modeling that we can’t perform today due to computational limitations. A quantum computer can process all possible solutions at once to come to an answer. She ties it into the cloud, saying cloud-based quantum computing is being pioneered by many large companies and also startups. The cloud can provide access to quantum processing.

Weisong Shi, professor of Computer Science, Director of the Mobile and Internet Systems Laboratory, Cyber Physical Systems Program at Wayne State University

Peggy is joined by Weisong Shi, professor of Computer Science, Director of the Mobile and Internet Systems Laboratory, Cyber Physical Systems Program at Wayne State University. He says cloud computing was introduced around 2005 and is widely recognized today. However, in the last few years, because of the Internet of Things, there is a huge amount of data being generated at the edge of the network, and some people are looking at how to process this huge amount of data. He adds that the cloud providers are trying to move services as close as possible to the end users.

Segment 3

Phil Renaud, executive director for The Risk Institute at Ohio State University

In advance of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, Peggy interviews Phil Renaud, executive director for The Risk Institute at Ohio State University, who says distracted driving is a behavioral challenge. Research shows that people believe they are good drivers, and therefore believe it is OK to look down at their phones. He says recent research shows the worst group of drivers is between 19 and 24, addressing the reasons why these drivers tend to justify the behavior.
