Transcript of "Tafazolli io it_rcuk_tsb_11_july_2012"

  1. 1. RCUK/TSBTowards a Shared Agenda for IoT Professor Rahim Tafazolli Director, CCSR University of Surrey, UK
  2. 2. UK focus RCUK (ESRC, AHRC, EPSRC, Digital Economy) TSB Most Catapults (CDE, SatAPPs, High Value Manufacturing, Offshore energy, Future Cities?) Industry Academia
  3. 3. IoTWhat is it? Inter-networking [1] of every things[2] that make sense • Economic value [3] • Help solving societal problems [1] Inter-networking: connected, not standalone [2] Things: Objects (including machines), Humans, Animals, vegetables [3] Value theory concerns the value of objects. When it concerns economic value, it generally deals with physical objects. However, when concerning philosophic or ethic value, an object may be both a physical object and an abstract object (e.g. an action). source: wikipedia
  4. 4. The Internet of ThingsWhy Important Efficiency; Management of scarce resources Simplicity; Managing complexity on our behalf and improve our quality of life Fundamental in tackling the Societal Challenges  Health, Inclusion and Assisted Living  Intelligent Transportation Systems  Smart Energy and Environment  Security, safety,…. Applications  Industrial applications, Smart cities, Smart homes, creative industry, business intelligence gathering, as well as help in smart communication systems …  Real and Digital World integration  only limited by own imagination
  5. 5. IoT theme (s) Convergence of many scientific themes, including:  Pervasive computing  Ubiquitous networking  Cloud computing  Ambient intelligence  Machine 2 Machine  Sensors devices  Actuators devices  Identification  Internet  Web  Arts, sports ..  ……….and different disciplines Main justification for Future Internet Research
  6. 6. Important applicationseasy to justify business case E-Government Health, Inclusion and Assisted Living Intelligent Transportation Systems Smart grids, Energy Efficiency and Environment
  7. 7. Can IoT change human behaviour?
  8. 8. Question: Can we use “IoT” to persuade users formore energy efficient attitude Multidisciplinary research problem Influence Observe human human behaviour behaviour Understand human behaviour
  9. 9. Persuasive utility networks Optimised resource utilisation by behavioural change Persuasive technology 5. Provide 1. Measure Automatic Meter behavioural Reading, data mining Multi-modal feedback feedback consumptionOptimised resource Understanding ofutilisation for situations consumptionnot requiring consumer patternsintervention 4. Automate 2. Understand WSAN, WSAN, where consumption context control loops appropriate context composition A set of actions Understanding of leading to increased consumption context 3. Choose and consumer intent resource efficiency appropriate actions Reasoning, autonomous decision making
  10. 10. Major General Issues Technology  Heterogeneous systems and networks-  No single standard (e.g., different sensor and actuator technologies, and wireless and wired interfaces)  Billions of devices  Resource constraint (most often)  Often low information integrity Questions…….  Who/how to make money?  What should be network architecture?  How to handle so much data?  How to energise them? How much energy required?  How to manage them?  Incl: Privacy, ethical issues?  Numbering and identifications, Internet Governance models appropriate?  …
  11. 11. Tsunami of Data
  12. 12. IoT – Current UK Scene Fragmented domains  Many domains see, and seek, the benefits of interconnected devices  However, they tend to look only within their domain Diverse Technologies  Different interpretations of the research area result in highly fragmented and heterogeneous technologies  Developers are driven to develop independent solutions to meet the short term need Uncoordinated research activities  Many research projects deal with IoT applications and technologies  Many research teams are involved in IoT world-wide No clear ideas on market size, business opportunities, ethical implications Benefits of IoT are still to be “sold” to the end-users » There is a need for an inclusive UK debate on all aspects of IoT
  13. 13. Inter-relation Culture, Technology Creative and Design Science Social, Economics, Legal and Business Ethical
  14. 14. IoT Roadmap Workshop Not to provide solutions Grand Challenges and Future Directions But identify opportunities for the UK (plc and citizens) Research, Technologies, applications, ethical/regulatory issues and Business  Short term: < 10 years …..TSB, Catapults  Long term: >50 years …..RCUK  EPSRC themes:  Towards an intelligent information infrastructure (TI3)  Many-core architectures and concurrency in distributed and embedded systems,  Digital Economy: “IT as a utility”  ESRC Theme: True economic models of new technologies  AHRC Theme: Creative Economy, include design and creative arts communities - Future directions. Feed into 4 Knowledge Transfer Hubs.
  15. 15. Breakout Themes  Technology and Science  Information, Communications, Networking, Infrastructure  Cloud Data  Future Internet implications  Social, legal and ethical  Economics, Business  Culture, Creative Design
  16. 16. Breakouts Breakout 1: Technology and Science  Hamid Aghvami Hamid.Aghvami@kcl.ac.uk Breakout 2: Culture, Creative Design  Rachel Cooper r.cooper@lancaster.ac.uk Breakout 3: Economics, Business  Colin Upstill cu@it-innovation.soton.ac.uk Breakout 4: Social, legal and ethical  Bill Dutton william.dutton@oii.ox.ac.uk
  17. 17. Outputs One white paper from each Breakout  Each white paper will be limited to less than 10 pages  Structure of White papers  List of Contributors  Executive Summary  Rationale  Research and Development priorities  R&D Roadmap  Summary and Conclusions  Recommendations UK Strategic Research Agenda  One consolidated report, edited from all White Papers  Same structure as the white paper
