Infotech Oulu Lecture Series

Lecturer: Professor Arkady Zaslavsky, CSIRO, Australia

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2015
Time: 10:15
Room: TS101


The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the major disruptive technologies and is on top of Gartner’s hype curve for 2014/2015. IoT will connect billions of "things", where things include computers, smartphones, sensors, objects from everyday life. IoT will be the main source of big data according to predictions of many experts. This talk focuses on challenges of the IoT and disruptively big data it generates. The talk will also showcase a CSIRO IoT technology which brings together sensing and cloud computing and is an efficient open platform for handling IoT data streams of high volume, velocity, value and variety. A case study built on the basis of the OpenIoT platform will also be presented.


Dr Arkady Zaslavsky is a Senior Principal Research Scientist at Data61 @ CSIRO. He is leading the scientific area of IoT at Data61 and leads a number of IoT-related projects and initiatives. Before coming to CSIRO in July 2011, he held a position of a Chaired Professor in Pervasive and Mobile Computing at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden where he was involved in a number of European research projects, collaborative projects with Ericsson Research, PhD supervision and postgraduate education.
