Topic Abstract

Context Awareness in Cloud and IoT
According to industry estimates, 50 billion devices are due to come online by 2020. With so many connected gadgets all sending, receiving and processing instructions to operate, the sheer amount of data due to come on-stream could come with huge costs. The nature of data sources that provide insights do not necessarily contain adequate environmental context for generation of subjective judgments automatically.

This begs the following question – will the Internet of Things really lead to a world of “enchanted objects”, where our possessions gently anticipate our every need - our living and work spaces become well-oiled machines? Or is the internet of things just another excuse for rampant consumerism, whose only contribution will be to clog basements with yet more unnecessary junk?

For IoT to become useful in the real world, devices must be capable to derive context. Context, about users, environment, location, etc, allows devices to infer meaning from streams of data from disparate systems. When devices and applications talk to each other without human intervention, it will multiply the opportunities for IoT, and society will be able to move beyond smart consumer appliances to smart communities.

Our presentation focuses on techniques used to derive useful and actionable insights from this multitude of data sources, to build real-world and practical applications for IoT engagements, and the design elements that enable key characteristics required for people-aware IoT solutions:

- Adaptive: where devices learn as information changes, and are able to resolve ambiguity and tolerate unpredictability.

- Iterative and stateful: wherein devices may “remember” previous interactions in a process and return information that is suitable for the specific application at that point in time.

- Contextual: They may understand, identify, and extract contextual elements such as time, location, domain and users’ profile.

Topic Abstract

Digital revolution is sprawling in our day to day life to bring fundamental changes in the way of doing and understanding the things. Digital data is now everywhere and the ability to harness the data to deliver transformative results is critical to all the industry sectors and business therein.

Agricultural industry is at the cross roads of the digital revolution and sustainable practices. The role of IoT in enabling the shift from traditional heuristic agricultural to technology led precision agriculture is paving the way for innovation in this industry. The future of farming relies on the efficient use of agri resources to elevate the yield and farming productivity. This concept is at the heart of precision or smart farming, an emerging wave of technology led farming practices. IoT and Big Data can bring transformational change in the way agricultural operations and decision systems work today. The shift from traditional, gut feel or heuristics based agricultural industry can transition into more sophisticated and streamlined operations driven by sensor based remote monitoring, control and predictive algorithms.
