IEEE IoT Newsletter - July 2020


Article 1

Cyber Risk from IoT devices and Networks

Petar Radanliev

Cyber risk and its associated economic impact are growing with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in human-computer interactions. Some examples include connected devices into more aspects of modern life, including banking, finance, and insurance. Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, and the severity of future attacks could be much greater than what has been observed to date. The critical question is how sufficient is our current cybersecurity to safeguard from such cyber risk.

 


Article 2

IoT and COVID-19

Ahmed Banafa

COVID-19 has impacted countries, communities, and individuals in countless ways, from business and school closures to job losses not to undermined loss of lives. As governments scramble to address these problems, different solutions based on technologies like IoT have sprung up to help in dealing with this worldwide health crisis. As a result, COVID-19 may well have been the ultimate catalyst of the Internet of Things (IoT) [3].

 


Article 3The Great Potential of Rural Areas in Spain and Portugal for the Implementation of New Technologies

Javier Parra, Javier Prieto, and Juan M. Corchado

The population density of the least populated regions in Spain is below 0.98 inhabitants per square kilometer, which is lower than in Lapland. These data cause great concern among European institutions. To solve this problem, efforts are being made to boost the technological potential of those areas through Precision Agriculture Solutions. IoT is often resorted to as a means of combatting this problem.

 


Article 4In-band Full-duplex for Enhanced IoT Connectivity

Leo Laughlin, Himal A. Suraweera, and Ioannis Krikidis

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to affect great change across multiple domains, with wireless connectivity being the key feature that unlocks the power of monitoring and computing in a plethora of applications. Whilst wireless is central to IoT, the predicted growth in traffic must be accommodated within the already crowded wireless spectrum, and IoT presents a wide range of differing wireless connectivity requirements.
