The 2016 Impact Factors were just announced.
The Internet of Things Journal's (IoT-J's) Impact Factor = 7.6! This is huge, especially for a new journal. The IoT-J started publishing in 2014, so, this is the initial impact factor. (New journals don't get an IF before the 4th year.) In addition, the most downloaded paper in all of IEEE Xplore, i.e., out of >4.2M articles, is an IoT-J paper. It has had 228K downloads and 316 citations.
IEEE Talks IoT: George Corser
Read our latest Q&A with George Corser, assistant professor of computer science and information systems at Saginaw Valley State University. In this interview, Corser explores some of the key considerations and challenges for security in a variety of IoT applications, including autonomous ones.
Interoperability in the Internet of Things
The original IoT vision is of a hyper-connected global ecosystem in which "things" communicate with other "things" whenever needed to deliver highly diversified services to users. Yet, today, vendor-specific solutions have created local IoT silos. To address this situation, many IoT researchers and industry leaders are now focusing on interoperability.
