  • Internet of Things
    what’s this all about ?
    In 2008 the number of thingsconnected to the Internet exceeded the number of peopleon Earth.
    And this things are not smartphones.
    They are everything…
    The third Age of the Internet
    In the beginning there were the machines (Web 1.0), and then there were the humans (Web 2.0 – Social Web). Now we have “anything” connected to the Internet. And here is Web 3.0
  • IoT … trends
  • Internet of Things
    what’s this all about ?
    A Dutch start-up, Sparked, started using wireless sensors on … cows
    When one cow is sick or pregnant, it sends a message to the farmer.
    Each cow transmits200MBper year.
    The third Age of the Internet
    In the beginning there were the machines (Web 1.0), and then there were the humans (Web 2.0 – Social Web). Now we have “anything” connected to the Internet. And here is Web 3.0
  • Internet of Things
    what’s this all about ?
    “The next logical step in the technological revolution connecting people anytime, anywhere is to connect inanimate objects. This is the vision underlying in Internet Of Things: anytime, anywhere, by everyone and anything” – ITU, November 2005

  • Internet of Things
    issues
    Unique addressability
    • RFID tags
    • Semantic Web
    • URI;
    • Powerful centralized “brains” acting as the human counterpart;
    • IPv6 -> identify any kind of object in the world;
    There are too many things in the world
    The shear amount of data that the IoT is going to generate is more than any conventional computing architecture can process.
  • Bio-inspired computing
    What’s so cool about that ?
    It is the use of computers to model nature …
    and, more important, …
    The study of nature to improve de design and implementation of computers, systems and algorithms
    Nature is our best engineer
    Most of the problems we face in the design and development of computer systems can be found in various systems from the nature, with solutions that work, too.
  • IoT and Bio-computing
    Emergent systems – modeling IoT specific networks as natural systems (ants, termites, bees, wasps);
    Neural networks – simple computations across a large number of nodes;
    Reliability and fault-tolerance – living things tend to get sick and heal almost by themselves. Large heterogeneous networks need similar mechanisms
    Our body is the biggest network of things
    The human body is composed of trillions of cells which work together quit well … most of the time
  • IoT and Bio-computing
    Artificial immune system – finding “strange” nodes in a deployment and fighting against intrusion in the network;
    Endocrine system – signaling across large networks
    Our body is the biggest network of things
    The human body is composed of trillions of cells which work together quit well … most of the time
  • What I want to do ?
    Investigate the applicability of bio-inspiration to the organization and management of IoT networks
    Design and propose a high-level standardization for the meta-data needed in my proposition;
    Validate the proposition -> custom software simulator ->millions of nodes
    points of extension for future development
    Use living systems to model IoT
    A worldwide IoT network at it’s peak can be a great challenge to design, deploy and maintain and the only tractable approach is that we seek inspiration in the natural world

    IoT holds danges, but it also hold promises
    When billions of thingsare connected, talking and learning, the only limitation left will be our own imagination [CISCO on IoT]
  • IoT “hot” topics
    • Intelligence
    • non-deterministic and open network in which auto-organized or intelligent entities will be interoperable and able to act independently (pursuing their own objectives or shared ones) depending on the context, circumstances or environments
    • Architecture
    • common standards would not be able to address every context or use;
    • predicting everything would be no more than defining a "global finality" for everything that is just not possible with any of the current top-down approaches and standardizations [Gautier 2010]
    • Complex system
    • the huge number of different links and interactions between autonomous actors, and its capacity to integrate new actors. At the overall stage it will likely be seen as a chaotic environment;
    • Size
    • 50 to 100 trillion objects, and be able to follow the movement of those objects. Every human being is surrounded by 1000 to 5000 objects [Wadner 2007]
  • IoT “hot” topics
    • Time constraints
    • There will be billions of parallel and simultaneous events, time will no more be used as a common and linear dimension; it will be based on massive parallel systems;
    • Space constraints
    • the precise geographic location of a thing—and also the precise geographic dimensions of a thing—will be critical;
    • IoT-centric geospatial standards will play a key role in the Internet of Things.
  • IoT implementations
    Frameworks
    • Interaction between things and facilitate the emergent behavior;
    • Current implementations: real-time data logging
    • Pachube
    • Software development environments: develop custom software for IoT hardware devices
  • IoT: state of the industry
    Alcatel-Lucent:
    touchTag -> RFID+QR
    ConnectedHome:
    AlertMe -> ZigBee;
    Pachube:
    largest OpenSource data management infrastructure for sensors;
    Nimbits:
    open source data historian server in the cloud;
