    Talk Title: Research Challenges and Solutions for IOTT/CPS

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: As the Internet of Things (IOT) matures and supports increasingly sophisticated applications, the research needs for IOT also expand considerably. This talk discusses several major research challenges for the future IOT where trillions of devices are connected to the Internet; call it the Internet of Trillions of Things (IOTT). Research topics covered include new systems of systems problems, the impact of massive scaling, and IOTT for healthcare. Smart cities are used to present examples of new system of system research issues and their solutions. Scaling and long time maintenance problems give rise to the need for runtime validation. Why this is important and how to accomplish this is presented. We use the Internet of Healthcare Things to identify the realisms that must be addressed in real home deployments. We also discuss the problems and solutions for using speech as a major sensing modality for smart healthcare based on an emo2vec (an extension to word2vec) and LSTMs. The list of topics is not meant to be comprehensive, but does address some of the main research issues in IOTT/CPS.

    Biography: Professor John A. Stankovic is the BP America Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia and Director of the Link Lab. He served as Chair of the department for 8 years. He is a Fellow of both the IEEE and the ACM. He has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of York for his work on real-time systems. He won the IEEE Real-Time Systems Technical Committee's Award for Outstanding Technical Contributions and Leadership. He also received the IEEE Technical Committee on Distributed Processing's Distinguished Achievement Award (inaugural winner). He has seven Best Paper awards, including one for ACM SenSys 2006. Stankovic has an h-index of 115 and over 58,000 citations. In 2015 he was awarded the Univ. of Virginia Distinguished Scientist Award, and in 2010 the School of Engineering's Distinguished Faculty Award. He also received a Distinguished Faculty Award from the University of Massachusetts. He has given more than 40 Keynote talks at conferences and many Distinguished Lectures at major Universities. He also served on the National Academy's Computer Science Telecommunications Board. He was the Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Distributed and Parallel Systems and was founder and co-editor-in-chief for the Real-Time Systems Journal. His research interests are in real-time systems, wireless sensor networks, smart and connected health, cyber physical systems, and the Internet of Things. Prof. Stankovic received his PhD from Brown University.
