Mark O’Neill, VP of Innovation at Axway recently wrote for Silicon Angle, “Welcome to the future, where smart meters monitor your home appliance usage, where fitness devices on your wrist track your heart-rate, and where electric vehicles can take commands from your wristwatch. What does all of this have in common? These innovations are all part of the Internet of Things (IoT). While the Internet of Things is going through a rosy honeymoon period at the moment, security issues are slowly creeping to the surface. There’s a growing awareness that IoT devices are riddled with vulnerabilities, and securing these weaknesses will soon become one of the major priorities for both manufacturers and the people who use them. Let’s examine the top 10 things to consider in detail.” Read more

John-Paul Rooney of the Guardian recently called on readers to make way for the Internet of Things. He writes, “Growing interest in the interoperability of household appliances and the difference this could make to our everyday lives, is leading to calls for new ‘standards’ to be introduced to accelerate the way to the internet of things. Much like those used in other areas of industry where technology sharing is important, such as the telecoms sector, innovators in the consumer electronics sector and other hi-tech industries believe that the use of Europe-wide ‘standards essential patents’, could help to protect innovators’ routes to market and encourage research and development (R&D) investment.” Read more
Applying semantic technologies to IoT, however, has several research challenges, the authors note, pointing out that IoT and using semantics in IoT is still in its early days. Being in on the ground floor of this movement is undeniably exciting to the research community, including people such as Konstantinos Kotis, Senior Research Scientist at University of the Aegean, and IT Manager in the regional division of the Samos and Ikaria islands at North Aegean Regional Administration Authority.
