Environment-Aware and User-Centric Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to connect billions of objects and devices through global dynamic information exchange leading to diverse applications and services which will result in major cost savings, new revenues, and employee productivity enhancements. However, real-world deployment and use of IoT systems is very challenging mainly because of the Big Data generated, the large-scale deployment of sensors and devices, and the heterogeneity of IoT technologies. This talk will address these challenges and will present state-of-the-art strategies for building IoT architectures that are environment-aware, user-centric, and sustainable. The talk will discuss dynamic learning and adaptation strategies that are based on environment awareness and end user behavior. Several examples will be provided showing the impact of user-centric design on improving user experience and optimizing the IoT system performance (in terms of energy, bandwidth, sensing, computing, and data analytics).
