Dr. Hamid Menouar animera une conférence sous le thème: “Internet of Things for Smart Living” Le lundi 25 juin 2018 à partir de 14h00 au niveau du Bloc C.

Short summary: 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not a new but a still emerging topic of constant interest to technologists, business leaders, policymakers, and the world at large. Even though there are many consumer products, durable goods, vehicles, industrial and utility components, and other everyday objects being already connected to the internet we are still in the early stages of what will become a highly connected world. When most of objects around us will be enabled with Internet connectivity and powerful data analytic capabilities the way we live and we work will drastically change. There are many and different projections for the impact of IoT on the Internet and economy but they are all impressive, with some anticipating as many as 100 billion connected IoT devices and a global economic impact ofmore than $11 trillion by 2025. 
In this presentation we will provide an overview of the IoT technologies and applications along with related challenges and opportunities.
