Smart ICT - Smart IT

  1. 1. EEDC 34330 0 Execution Environments for Smart Distributed ICT Computing p g Master in Computer Architecture, Networks and Systems - CANS
  2. 2. The future is digital g world is becoming instrumented and interconnected Sensors are being embedded g across entire ecosystems Mobile phones, cameras, cars, cars shipping containers containers, intelligent appliances, RFID tags by the hundreds of millions All becoming interconnected. 2
  3. 3. The role of ICTs The resulting volume of ICTs traditional role data promises insight and intelligence to solve some of our biggest problems New role of ICTs but l b t only if we can process and make sense of it in real time. 3
  4. 4. Cloud Computing role p g "cloud computing," is a new way of looking at distributed computing environments digital i t lli di it l intelligence can be embedded not just in individual things, but things also across entire systems. Cloud Computing as p g platform for smart ICT 4
  5. 5. Sustainable EU Growth ICT will play a key role in the sustainable grown “ICT offers a significant toolset to build a sustainable future for the next generation of Europeans. To meet its ambitious climate change goals, the EU strongly endorses new technologies capable of improving energy efficiency and making transport systems, buildings, and cities in general smarter.” smarter. Viviane Reding, European Commission, 2010. 5
  6. 6. Sustainable EU Growth Smart Energy Grids – T d Today, up t 40 percent of to t f the energy produced might be lost on its way to the consumer, – but Internet connectivity, connectivity Foto: J T J.T. computing power, digital sensors, and remote control of the transmission t l f th t i i and distribution system will help make grids smarter, greener, and more efficient.

  7. 7. Sustainable EU Growth Smart Transport Systems – T ffi jams cost Europe €135 billi Traffic j tE billion a year, and drivers lose five days per year while sitting in traffic. – Making roads and cars “smarter” with intelligent transport systems (ITS) such as sensor networks, RF tags, and positioning systems offers a p promising alternative. The Internet g can interconnect diverse technologies and make mobility more efficient through the real-time real time management of public and private transport resources. Foto: David Carrera 7
  8. 8. Sustainable EU Growth Smart Healthcare Systems – C Current research i working t t h is ki to develop technologies for “ambient” environments capable of assisting patients by treating and monitoring them from a distance to reduce medical costs and improve p p patient comfort. – These technologies combine devices (sensors, actuators, (sensors actuators special hardware, and equipment), networks, and service platforms to harness information about medical conditions, i f ti b t di l diti patient records, and illnesses.
