Title Future Technological Directions of Smart Communities – CCC View
Date Tuesday 04/07/2017, 12.00- 13.00
Location S3|20 Rundeturmstr. 10, Darmstadt
Room 111
CCC (Computing Community Consortium) is a subcommittee of the Computing Research Association (CRA) that catalyzes the computing research consortium and enables the pursuit of innovative, high-impact research in USA. As a member of the CCC, over the last three years, I actively participated in a discussion about future technological directions in our communities and intelligent infrastructures in USA.
In this talk, I will discuss the research agenda for smart communities, intelligent infrastructures, and smart cities that the CCC’s “Computing in Physical World” task force captured in a series of white papers. I will present technical challenges and recommendations to federal agencies that Smart Communities face, including (a) city-scale and rural intelligent systems and platforms, (b) system challenges in the Internet of Things, and (c) safety, security and privacy threats posed by accelerating trends in the Internet of Things.
