Kolloq. Dr. Xiang Su, topic: Semantic reasoning for IoT edge computing

Thursday, 13th of July 2017, 4:00 pm FMI 01.09.014 (MI-Building, Campus Garching)

Edge computing is a new paradigm enabling to move the computation from the central high powered Cloud or server machine to the edge of the IoT networks. It benefits IoT systems with the proximity to data sources and end users and addresses important IoT challenges such as low and predictable latency, secure and privacy-preserving services and applications, long battery life and low bandwidth cost, and scalability.  Aiming to take the advantages of edge computing paradigm for realizing intelligent functions in IoT systems, this talk focuses on semantic reasoning in IoT systems with edge computing devices. To demonstrate the benefits, we developed an experimental IoT system enables distributing reasoning tasks to the mobile devices, balances the workload in components of IoT systems with various computing capabilities, and improves user experiences.

Dr. Xiang Su is a postdoctoral researcher in computer science in the Center of Ubiquitous Computing at the University of Oulu, Finland. He has been working in Technical University of Munich, VTT Technical Research Center of Finland, and Aalto University as a visiting scholar.  He has been involved as a co-PI, project manager, scientist, and a deliverable leader in several research projects funded by Tekes Finland, Academy of Finland, H2020 and FP 6 EU programs, and National Natural Science Foundation of China, and industry. His research interests cover Internet of Things, Industrial IoT, stream processing, knowledge representations, and context modeling and reasoning. He has published more than 40 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles. Su received a PhD in technology from the University of Oulu.
