Some Approaches to Wireless Sensor Networks, IoT, and the Internet of People

30 Sep

Fernando Boavida, University of Coimbra,Portugal

External Presentation (External Speaker)

Several challenges persist in what concerns wireless sensor networks, the Internet of Things, and the use of these technologies in human-centric environments. Some of these challenges pertain to devices and networking, mobility, construction of application-independent platforms, performance, and anomaly detection and handling. Others are more application-oriented and relate to human-in-the-loop approaches, user-friendliness, context awareness, and use of cognition models for ordinary or creative reasoning. In this talk the speaker will provide an overview of recent and on-going initiatives in these areas, developed in the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra.
