Shidler College of Business Seminar Series - ITM Shidler Speaker


This talk explores the research challenges in the systems and software engineering domains from multiple angles and reflects on the urgently needed collective efforts in IoT and software engineering. Our approach fundamentally challenges the current thinking and understanding of scientific, technological, and political paradigms in tackling the engineering of IoT systems. We discuss technical paradigms and research challenges in the domains of Cloud and Edge Computing as well as the requirements of people in such systems. We will explore how these novel approaches impact application composition utilizing AI and Edge Computing
