In this talk Dr. Dario Pompili from Rutgers University in the USA introduces a general mobile computing framework, along with a cyber interface, to enable futuristic Internet of Things applications.
In 2003, there were approximately 6.3 billion people living on the planet and 500 million devices connected to the Internet. With the next evolution of Internet, Internet of Things (IoT), by 2020 50 billion “things” are expected to be connected to this enormous network. IoT is taking a huge leap in the evolution of the Internet by connecting things, places, sensors, actuators, and other smart mobile devices to enable person-to-object and object-to-object communications. Real-time, in-the-field processing of data generated by IoT is crucial for enabling novel ubiquitous applications and IoT apps need to collect and analyse relevant data from an enormous number of (likely wireless) sensing sources to generate accurate and timely results in the field. Therefore, they must be aware of the non-idealities in data and resources as well as of the changes in the context (environment) so to acquire and process only the high quality relevant information.
In this talk, we will introduce a general mobile computing framework to enable futuristic IoT applications as well as a novel cyber interface that utilizes it. The mobile computing framework is uncertainty (i.e., in data quality, quantity, and resource availability) and context (i.e., location, time activity, and identity) aware. Both context-aware and uncertainty-aware computing improve each other by providing and exploiting the context or uncertainty information.
Dr. Dario Pompili
Dr Pompili is an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Rutgers University, NJ, USA, where since 2007 he is the director of the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory (CPS Lab) and the site co-director of the NSF I/UCRC Center for Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC). Since 2012, he is also associate director of application collaborations for CPS of the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2). Dr. Pompili published more than a hundred refereed scholar publications: with about 5,500 citations, he has an h-index of 28 and an i10-index of 42 (Google Scholar, March'16). Since 2014, he is a Senior Member of both the IEEE Communications Society and the ACM.
