  5. 5. Looking ahead to challenges and opportunities [I] • The rapidly changing world of computing and communications • A global Internet • Internet users, broadband Internet, super computing • A more connected world • Mobile phones, mobile Internet, Internet of Things • Towards an innovative China • Dominant maker of computers and consumer electronics; readily able to adapt and improve on technology innovations made elsewhere; but innovation limited by government controls and the relative lack of IP protection • FInES has a long track record in cooperating with China (INTEROP-VLab) • Raw materials for innovation • Concentration of science and engineering talent • Venture capital (China 2nd largest VC market in the world) ••• 5
  6. 6. Looking ahead to challenges and opportunities [II] • “Big data” era: • How to meet growing data storage, analysis and management demands (e.g. parallel file systems)? • How to utilise enterprise-wide, scalable, fully web- enabled distributed processing systems across a wide variety of industries and applications? • How to automate the understanding of large complex data by eliminating the requirement for taxonomy/ontology and combining a number of formerly point solutions into an integrated entity-oriented analytics solution? • More data about the data  metadata • Levelling and commoditisation of knowledge as a shared, common resource  a new wave of intellectual value creation • Social nature of the Web  instant global consensus on major issues with little time for filtering, comparison, critical analysis ••• 6
  7. 7. Looking ahead to challenges and opportunities [III] • After silicon • Self assembling circuits from carbon nanotubes • Towards a programmable universe • Sensors can send out streams of data about their surroundings, anonymously transmitted to remote data centres (“clouds”) • … but who are the EU Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo and Apple? • Convergence of biology and computer science • Designing chips that have structural resemblance to the brain • Deconstructing the interface (Macintosh, Windows) • By 2070, our brain connected to the Internet? • From GIZMOS to SPIMES to BIOTS (B. Sterling) • “Halo of data”: personalised descriptions of what and who is around you are available at the push of a button on your smartphone • The whole brain can be synchronised to the cloud (2100?) – humans can restore and backup their memories to the system; the system can restore memories into a new body • Collective learning (2200?) – only new knowledge needs to be created, learning becomes obsolete; all known knowledge is contained on a supercomputer (on a chip?); all known knowledge pertaining to any subject can be downloaded directly to the brain ••• 7
  8. 8. Towards the Sensing Enterprise? • 2009: FInES began to explore Science Based Interoperability; 2011: FInES explores the new concept of “Sensing Enterprise”. • Sensing Enterprise: an enterprise anticipating future decisions by using multi-dimensional information captured through physical and virtual objects and providing added value information to enhance its global context awareness. • WYSIWYG Enterprise: “With massive quantities of real-time information becoming pushed rather than pulled on a global scale future enterprises will be (a) context aware, (b) dynamically configurable, and (c) multi-identity oriented virtual entities that manifest themselves in many different ways and re-invent themselves over and over again.” • Sensing Factory: smart, adaptive, autonomous, and ambient machines.

  10. 10. FInES commitment to excellence! • Research projects must strive for excellence • Increase activities on communicating results to the most prestigious conferences and journals • ERA Conference Ranking • ISI Web of Knowledge • Special Issue of the Computers in Industry Journal ••• 10
