IEEE IoT Newsletter - November 2014

Article 1

Riding and Surviving the IoT Rodeo: Helping Users Stay in Control

David Rogers

There is little doubt that more devices are becoming smart. Major electronics retailers are marketing the smart home to consumers, with items on sale from connected door locks, through to baby monitoring systems and plant growth monitoring solutions. Product vendors and retailers are actively encouraging users to open up their homes to the internet.

 


Article 2

Discovering Potential Communities of Practice with Social Intention in an IoT-based Smart Home Environment

Dongman Lee

With the proliferation of IoT, multiple smart homes equipped with IoTs can interconnect with each other and form a community which we will call a smart home community. With the aid of a smart home community, we can discover potential social proximity among users and generate communities of practice that increase the quality of life for community members. In this article, we introduce the current state-of-the-art and identify some remaining research issues.

 


Article 3

Social Internet of Things:
Turning Smart Objects into Social Objects to Boost the IoT

Luigi Atzori, Antonio Iera and Giacomo Morabito

There is scientific evidence that a large number of individuals tied in a social network can provide far more accurate answers to complex problems than a single individual (or a small group of – even knowledgeable – individuals) [1]. This principle has been widely exploited in different internet-related domains, and has been investigated in recent years for the implementation of IoT systems [2], which are expected to integrate a large number of technologies and connect tens of billions of objects in the short term.

 


Article 4

The Intersection of Analytics and the Internet of Things

Aapo Markkanen and Dan Shey

The business case behind most Internet of Things (IoT) deployments relies on collecting data and gaining actionable insight from them through the right types of analytic tools. Mere connectivity already allows valuable enhancements such as remote service, but ultimately the value in IoT can be found in the ability to expose detailed and comprehensive (yes, even "big") data from assets and processes that have traditionally been more or less opaque to accurate analysis.
