There are four factors which signal a certain inevitability of the widespread change.I think it is the latter two points that are most interesting. Access to data that reflects your business is becoming increasingly commonplace and the volumes in which it is accumulated is increasing exponentially. The world of big data is here and just like your inbox, is unlikely to recede in volume in the foreseable future. Organisations that recognise this trend and develop the skill sets required to both harvest, analyse and synthesise such data will gain commercial advantage over their competitors. Extracting value from networks is a much more subjective activity requiring creative skills and the ability to view the world in a holistic sense. integrators are in the advantageous position to be influencers in this role.
Director of a new research institute in London started with UCL and Imperial College on Sustainable Connected Cities. Our purpose is to explore how technology can enhance the social, economic and environmental well being of cities. We are a mix of scientists, engineers, anthropologists and designers and have 3 guiding principles;- Design for humans as part of the solution.- Build for the long term by designing for the imperfections of the real world.- Deliver the triple bottom line – economic, social and environmental value.We have an "open IP" model to actively promote interaction with other businesses, research institutes, organisations and citizens. We are currently a team of 20 post docs and PhD's and my main job is to grow the institute through creating new partnerships and projects.
Our research focuses on three areas of:- cyber physical systems (IoT)- directed crowd sourcing- science of behaviour change
The London Living Lab will be at the heart of the work in ICRI Cities. We are deploying an "edge to cloud" system to test different architecture, design patterns and platforms (e.g. wireless comms, edge processing)The City as Platform underpins much of our work - it builds on years of work in the embedded / M2M domains where computing platforms have been deployed in systems for the purpose of control. The introduction of the internet of things shifts this embedded focus to one of cyber physical systems with shared assets that operate beyond traditional silos. CPS could be fixed, mobile or soft systems (crowd sourced) - issues we are investigating include:- manageability- reliability- trustworthiness- interoperability
