Human Face of Internet of Things for Smart Cities
Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW 2016) at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, where Dr. Kerry Taylor is speaking on Semantic Sensor Networks: The Internet of Things needs the Web of Data. IoT is normally seen as being about devices, but Dr. Taylor reminded us it is for people, including to make cities more livable. She showed a demonstration of a join of two sets of data using the semantic web. In another example the ontology of the data can be fragmented and embedded in sensors in the field. This has been proposed to W3C as a standard "iot-lite Ontology".
