IoTWhat is it? Inter-networking  of every things that make sense • Economic value  • Help solving societal problems  Inter-networking: connected, not standalone  Things: Objects (including machines), Humans, Animals, vegetables  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
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
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
Important applicationseasy to justify business case E-Government Health, Inclusion and Assisted Living Intelligent Transportation Systems Smart grids, Energy Efficiency and Environment
Question: Can we use “IoT” to persuade users formore energy efficient attitude Multidisciplinary research problem Influence Observe human human behaviour behaviour Understand human behaviour
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
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? …
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
Inter-relation Culture, Technology Creative and Design Science Social, Economics, Legal and Business Ethical
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.
