Stephen Miles is a Research Affiliate at the MIT Auto-ID Labs, and a Principal Consultant in Auto-ID Serialization and Event Management Systems. His primary research interests are in leveraging Automated Information Data Capture (AIDC) advanced wireless telemetry and web technologies to communicate about events in shared business processes. At MIT Steve lead the Future ENEL project to design a Safety Event Management system for a $4B Euro (4000) worker plant construction project in Slovakia with functions including an open framework for integration of real-time telemetry data, generation of a steam of standardized metadata associated with the content source, and design and demonstration of an open scaleable system that supports queries and event/alert notification based on rule sets. The Future ENEL project is collaboration between the Senseable City Laboratory, the Media Laboratory and Aero-Astro at MIT. An early prototype demonstrates how space can be annotated collectively and shared in real time for safety alerts:
At a more abstract level, introducing standardized metadata can be seen as restoring structured data to the web. Today when we create web portals to publish information that has been stored as structured data objects in relational databases, the use of HTML, an unstructured language, eviscerates the very data relationships that we had to share. Video is now the largest and fastest growing data source in enterprises and over the internet, computers have not been able to add value to the indexing and retrieval of this information. In current research with Brian Anthony, PhD, in the Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity, computational videography is used to abstract scientific events from synchronized high speed video and sensor inputs.
As an entrepreneurial leader and visionary with a passion for building successful network services, Stephen Miles track record includes concrete accomplishments in customer driven product development, marketing, sales, customer service, mergers & acquisitions and business development. His experience includes two private companies and two venture backed start-ups in the Boston area. He now assists technology companies with strategic planning, innovation acceleration, rapid strategy implementation and performance improvement initiatives including:
Stephen Miles background includes migrating legacy data systems to secure web applications platforms including Voice over IP, MPLS Quality of Service and web services tagging infrastructure. Extensive international experience collaborating with industry, government and academic interests in creating services environments around serialized ID's for products (serialized linear and 2D barcodes, RFID et al) and for people. Interested in opportunities to integrate social networking dynamic and "bottoms up" knowledge creation with proprietary secure distributed computing infrastructure required to manage information about real things such as product histories and patient records.
