Edge Intelligence for Connected In-home Healthcare: Challenges and Visions

Yuchen Zhao, Hamed Haddadi, and Payam Barnaghi

Over the coming decades, we will face an increasing number of challenges in the public health sector. Longer life expectancy brings a large aging population that requires more daily healthcare than before. Population living with long-term conditions such as dementia, which decrease their performance of daily activities, need not only extra medical resources but also social resources for their healthcare. Global-scale pandemics such as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can cause unprecedented challenges that overwhelm the healthcare system that we currently have.

Virtualized Gateways for Scalable Multi-access Networks

Saptarshi Hazra, Thiemo Voigt, and Chenguang Lu

Billions of devices are expected to be connected to the Internet through low-power wireless access technologies. Different wireless access technologies satisfy different service requirements in terms of coverage, data rate, responsiveness, etc. Upcoming applications like smart cities and the smart industry require combinations of these wireless access technologies to fulfill various service requirements.


Article 3IoT, Healthcare, and Medicine: Future Perspectives

Euclides Lourenço Chuma

We can say that the integration of IoT with Healthcare started with smartwatches monitoring some signals and storing this data in the cloud. With 5G and WiFi 6 networks accelerating the internet connection speeds, and at the same time, the Artificial Intelligence offering better analytics tools, sensors technological improvements more companies in the market are launching new IoT products, including healthcare IoT products.


Article 4Teaching Users New IoT Tricks: A Model-driven Cyber Range for IoT Security Training

Michalis Smyrlis, George Spanoudakis, and Konstantinos Fysarakis

As IoT ecosystems become mainstream, malicious actors routinely launch impactful attacks that affect both organizations and individuals - e.g., see the Mirai IoT botnet and its variants, and the intensification of these attacks in the COVID-19 era - ultimately corroding our trust in IoT applications and services.
