From IoT Data to Services

Speaker:  Athman Bouguettaya – Sydney, NSW, Australia
Topic(s):  Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science


The Internet of Things (IoT) is fast becoming a reality with a range of everyday “things” becoming sensor-equipped and internet connected. Ultimately, everything that we see and don’t see will be connected to the Internet. These Web-enabled “things” will be continuously streaming data whose size and volume will dwarf anything we have witnessed so far. This is called Big data. It is here to stay and in a big way. It is coming from all sorts of sensors, including instruments conducting deep space exploration from earth or satellites, highly sensorized high-energy physics, social media, smartphones, genomics machines, etc. The cloud has been instrumental in supporting the storage and processing of the ever increasing amount of data. “Domesticating” IoT data, i.e., making it useful, however, has been a major challenge. Service computing is the next major evolution of computing that aims at transforming massive data into artefacts that are acted upon and made “useful”, i.e., turned into services. In this talk, I will first overview the big data trend produced by human and physical sensors. I will then motivate the need for a uniform service management to service IoT data. I will then describe our latest research that focuses on servicing IoT-based sensor clouds.
