SICS IoT day recap

On February 9th in celebration of their new Internet of Things Centre the Swedish Institute of Computer Science held an IoT day that featured talks by a wide range of leading thinkers in the field including Adam Dunkels and Mike Kuniavsky among others.

The new centre is led by Kristina Höök,(professor at KTH and research leader at SICS) and has collaborations with Ericsson, Microsoft, KTH, Mobile Life, Stockholm University, Wisenet, Swedish ICT and a number of small companies including Company P, Ant Micro, and Vendolocus that will focus on the IoT and the consumer.

Description: "To create the future's attractive consumer-oriented Internet of Things applications we need three basic competences: interaction design, handling of big data, and software to connect the embedded systems with the Internet. SICS has a long experience and world class expertise in all three domains."
