Most federal agencies, without realizing it, have already done half the work of developing Internet of Things-based applications.

That is to say that they have fielded innumerable connected devices that are gathering or generating data. Now the task is to put in place the policies, processes and technologies to leverage that data, making it possible to gain new insights into their operations or to develop a new class of services.

Much work needs to be done. On the one hand, agencies need to gain a better understanding of the data they are collecting and how to convert that into intelligence. IoT is not a solution itself but rather a concept that can be applied to develop solutions in any number of fields—from asset and supply chain management to natural resource management, facilities management, and national security.

On the other, they need to develop the infrastructure to make IoT applications effective and secure. Experts speak of an IoT ecosystem that stretches from the devices and processing power at the edge to the compute, analytic and management capabilities in the data center.

This event will bring together subject matter experts from government and industry to help agencies begin to develop their IoT playbook.

Potential topics to be addressed include:

  • Emerging IoT use cases in the public sector
  • Current and emerging IoT-related standards and guidelines
  • Operational and device-related security concerns
  • The role of AI in IoT
  • Infrastructure considerations
  • The application of mobile device management to IoT-based solutions
  • The Internet of Things vs. the Network of Things

    James St.Pierre is Deputy Director of the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL). ITL is one of six research Laboratories within the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with an annual budget of $150 million, nearly 400 employees, and about 400 guest researchers from industry, universities, and foreign laboratories.

    St.Pierre works with the ITL Director to oversee a research program that cultivates trust in information technology and metrology by developing and disseminating standards, measurements, and testing for interoperability, security, usability, and reliability of information systems. ITL develops and disseminates cybersecurity standards and guidelines for Federal agencies and U.S. industry. ITL supports these and measurement science at NIST through fundamental and applied research in computer science, mathematics, and statistics. Through its efforts, ITL supports NIST’s mission to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.

    Within NIST's traditional role as the overseer of the National Measurement System, ITL is conducting research addressing measurement challenges in information technology as well as issues of information and software quality, integrity, and usability. ITL is also charged with leading the nation in using existing and emerging IT to help meet national priorities, including developing cybersecurity standards, guidelines, and associated methods and techniques, cloud computing, electronic voting, smart grid, homeland security applications, and health information technology. St.Pierre coordinates ITL’s research on Internet of Things (IOT), and big data.

    Before joining NIST, in 1994, St.Pierre worked as a technical project leader within Loral Space Systems semiconductor design group and also worked for IBM Federal Systems on the development of hardware and software for Los Angeles-class submarines. In addition, he worked with several universities to develop their semiconductor design curricula.
