Data Intelligence for IoT

Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly deployed to enable smart manufacturing, smart transportation, smart healthcare, smart building, and other smart world applications. Various types of data are accumulated continuously during the running of these applications. How to manage and make use of these IoT data to derive intelligence for making the smart world a reality is attracting both industrial and academic efforts. E.g., tremendous amount of surveillance videos is collected and to be mined for knowing the road status, security situation, and so on. It is still challenging to efficiently trace people across cameras, esp. in bad weather conditions. New efforts have constantly arise to make maximum use of these IoT. E.g. some latest endeavors are the combination of deep learning with stream processing directed to facilitate the intelligent processing of smart manufacturing data to enable the analysis and prediction of industrial equipment faults.

Though quite some progress has been made in this area, there is still a need for high data intelligence for IoT applications to make a real smart world. Examples include, but not limited to: efficient management of both high volume and fast speed IoT data; streaming cloud-based IoT data intelligent processing; IoT data analysis platforms that provide data mining services; various machine learning approaches to perform IoT data processing and analysis in a more accurate and efficient manner; edge and fog computing infrastructure for IoT data processing; mechanisms to preserve IoT data privacy and provide secure services for interconnected users; graph computing for IoT data processing; social computing for processing Internet of People; crowd sensing to provide more intelligent IoT data solutions; and so on.
