Genscape speakers will address Techfest Louisville Aug. 16-17

Conference held for professionals interested in technology advances

Techfest-Banner-Blue-and-Orange-300-ppi-e1484325913438TechFest, a biannual summit designed to bring together technology professionals for learning and networking, will be held Aug. 16-17 at the Pendennis Club, 218 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard, Louisville.

All attendees will have opportunities to explore economic development avenues for their businesses, connect with regional leaders and learn about emerging technology tools.

Three Genscape R&D scientists will participate in a deep-dive on the Internet of Things and explain what their company is doing in the energy space. Join our IoT Track audience at Techfest at 10 a.m. Aug. 16 on the third floor ballroom at the Pendennis Club.

Listen to “The Evolving IOT Ecosystem at Genscape” with the following Genscape speakers: Mike Frohme, Jason Fuchs, and Josef Spalenka of Genscape.

The Genscape team will provide the ‘real-world’ view of how to deploy, manage and maintain a global footprint of IoT devices requiring the exceptional talents of their Field Operations team. Genscape employs many sensor types each with its own unique capability to suit the use case under investigation and each with one or more unique environmental challenges which they will also review. The data acquisition phase is part of the curation process in turning their IoT data into market insights and this requires data analysts, numeric models and platform technology to deliver those insights to customers. They will walk through some of the Genscape products and software technologies that the company runs today and what is being built into the Next Generation platform.

Mike Frohme is an IT Enterprise Architect at Genscape, presently the Data Services Team Leader. Working for Genscape since late 2008, he has been instrumental in the creation, standardization, and evolution of centralized systems supporting Genscape’s key product spaces.

Jason Fuchs is an engineer and data scientist with over ten years of experience in sensors and telemetry. Currently he is responsible for the research and development of new monitoring technologies and data streams for Genscape. Some of his successful projects include using electromagnetic field monitors to gather data on infrastructure energy usage, installing camera systems to track rail shipments, and using satellite photos to gain intelligence on new asset construction.

Josef Spalenka is an R&D Research Scientist at Genscape, a role that essentially means he is a “new signals hunter.” He has been working at Genscape since 2014, to uncover market-relevant signals from raw datasets ranging from powerline flow data, infrared imagery, satellite photos, radio transmissions, and public NASA & weather satellite data, to build new data streams and analytics products.
