Try IT! Congress

17 Mar

Santiago Andrés Azcoitia, PhD Student, and Claudio Fiandrino, Postdoc Researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain

External Presentation (IN Speaker)

IMDEA Networks will participate in the Try IT! congress organized by DA-ETSIINF in collaboration with ACM-UPM and the ETSI Informáticos and held from March 14th to 18th at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Informáticos of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, at the Montegancedo Campus. It is a congress aimed at disseminating current technological trends.

Santiago Andrés Azcoitia will give the talk “Towards a Human-centric Data Economy” on March 17 at 13:30. In it he will review the business models of these “data markets” and the challenges they face, as well as the preliminary results of some of the research work carried out within the PhD program that seeks to understand the value of data and provide tools to move towards a people-centered data economy.

On the other hand, Claudio Fiandrino, Postdoc Researcher, will give a talk on the “pillars of future 6G networks, challenges and research lines” on March 18 at 12:30. 6G will bring a paradigm shift from “connected things” (of 5G) to “connected intelligence,” supporting even more stringent KPI requirements than 5G, and global coverage. In this talk we will cover two important pillars of future 6G networks: explainable and trustworthy Artificial Intelligence and joint communication and sensing.
