Title: Internet to Things – Time to scale up!

The Internet of Things (IoT) has received an almost exponential growth in attention across diverse ecosystems in the past 10 years. Technologies have been rapidly emerging and evolving from research to industrial adoption. These technologies are now readily available to build IoT solutions for diverse industrial, enterprise and consumer applications. However, practices and solutions that are needed to design, deploy and operate solutions at a scale that meets the expectations of the value proposition that IoT offers are still missing. This seminar will provide a background to “why IoT”, go over the necessary technologies for IoT and continue by explaining the issues at hand, and how we have elected to approach some of them. We conclude by pointing at the remaining IoT-related research challenges.

For any further questions, please contact the local host.
