IEEE IoT Newsletter - July 2021
Wireless Time-Sensitive Networking (WTSN)
Time is a precious and scarce resource not only to people, but also to most machines, computers, and IoT devices. Precise time and computing/communications with strictly bounded, usually, low latency are the foundations for emerging IoT applications and new user experiences. Future flexible factories, mobile and collaborative robots, autonomous systems, and virtual/immersive reality are a few examples of the next wave of applications that rely on accurate time and bounded (low) latency computing and communications.
Practical Artificial Intelligence for the IoT
Danilo Pietro Pau
This article proposes a practical methodology and associated tools for next-generation IoT developers who aim to productively conceive and deploy IoT applications with interoperable artificial neural networks (ANN) into resource-constrained microcontrollers (MCU).
IoT and 5G Convergence
The convergence of 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) is the next natural move for two advanced technologies built to make users' lives convenient, easier, and more productive. But before talking about how they will unite we need to understand each of the two technologies.
Global IoT Spending in the COVID-19 Era
Key Insights: i) overall enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) spending grew 12.1% in 2020 to $128.9 billion; ii) Asia-Pacific (APAC) saw the fastest growth (17%), followed by North America (14.9%) and Europe (9.7%); iii) 2021 IoT spending for enterprises is expected to grow 24% in 2021, led by investments in IoT software and IoT security; iv) Beyond 2021, it is expected that IoT spending will grow at 26.7% annually.

IEEE International Conference on Omni-layer Intelligent Systems 2021 (IEEE COINS 2021)
23-25 August 2021 // Barcelona, Spain
IEEE COINS includes a multi-disciplinary program from technical research papers, to panels, workshops, and tutorials on the latest technology developments and innovations. IEEE COINS will address all important aspects of the IoT ecosystem from smart things to the circuit and system, design automation, Edge-Fog-Cloud computing, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, blockchain, security, and smart products/services as well as business models. IEEE COINS solicits papers and proposals accompanying submissions for presentations in the Vertical and Topical Tracks. Please visit the website for more information.
The IEEE Internet of Things Magazine solicits high quality articles that: a) describe in depth and/or breadth the state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary IoT-centric research and deployments, b) present groundbreaking novel practical contributions and insights into emerging IoT hot topics and futuristic applications, c) develop/share best practices, vision and lessons learned on integrated IoT environments, and d) establish guiding principles for the advancement of IoT-centered research as well as for the technical, operational and business successes.
