ASM International fosters the understanding and application of metals and engineered materials and their research, design, reliable manufacture, use, and economic and social benefits. This is accomplished via a global information-sharing network of interaction among members in forums and meetings, education programs, and through publications and digital media.
The Minnesota Chapter of ASM International is located in the Twin Cities, Minnesota.
MinnTS is an annual joint meeting of area technical and scientific organizations.
This years topics are:
- The "Internet of Things" - Stefan Lindaval, Multitech
- What exactly is the “Internet of Things” (IoT), and what impact is it going to have on you and your organization? It’s a growing topic of conversation that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. IoT is growing at an astronomical rate and is getting bigger every day. To prepare for IoT, companies in all sectors must build a connected device strategy that makes sense-from both a financial and logistical standpoint-if they want to capitalize on the enormous opportunity IoT offers. This presentation will discuss business models around the IoT applied to specific industries, and explore the technologies available and device strategies to connect your “things” to the internet
- Cybersecurity - Noah Korba, General Mills
- Cybersecurity touches all aspects of our lives, from personal banking to national defense. Impacts from recent attacks are far reaching—from the exposure of social security numbers, health records and credit card numbers to intellectual property and national defense secrets. In 2014 alone, the US government spent $31B to defend against cyber attacks. Noah Korba will discuss who the attackers are, what they’re after, and how they monetize their spoils. He’ll draw on his experience as an ethical hacker to provide examples of recent cyber attacks effects on corporations and government. Finally, he’ll provide common ways for MinnTS members to protect themselves from these threats.
