HIPEAC 2022 | DL4IoT: Workshop on Deep Learning for IoT @ Budapest, Hungary
Jun 20 @ 2:00 pm – Jun 22 @ 5:30 pm

The HiPEAC 2022 conference will take place in Budapest (Hungary), as a F2F event, from the 20th to the 22nd of June, 2022.

 

VEDLIoT workshop DL4IoT: Workshop on Deep Learning for IoT – 20 June from 14:00 – 17.30 CEST.

The use of AI in IoT applications dramatically extends the capabilities of IoT systems and their application areas. These new, next-generation IoT architectures allow for processing vast amounts of data collected in distributed systems, affecting areas like transportation (e.g. self-driving cars), automation (e.g. robotization or predictive maintenance), and our homes (e.g. assisted living). Teaching the IoT to learn imposes a number of new challenges. New hardware and accelerator concepts are required for efficient data processing in a distributed environment. Also, significant improvements on the toolchain are required to bridge between AI and IoT developers. Furthermore, security, privacy, or robustness for such systems becomes a critical challenge, being essential for most application domains. The workshop aims at discussing challenges and solutions related to the exploitation of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) for handling the large complexity of IoT applications.

EU-IoT IDEAthon/Hackathon 2021/22 @ Munich, Germany
Jun 27 – Jun 28 all-day

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The EU-IoT Hackathon focuses on “sustainable next generation IoT applications”. We invite you to bring your ideas and to develop solutions that address IoT skills training, IoT sustainable business models, IoT novel technical solutions in the context of 6 challenge domains: IoT interfaces, far Edge, near Edge, infrastructure, and also: a specific challenge domain of the European Factory Platform (EFPF), with focus on manufacturing. It will take place between 27th-29th June 2022, in Munich (Germany). The hackathon is co-located with CONASENSE2022.

The aim of the EU-IoT Hackathon is to disseminate new business ideas, experiments and prototypes as first step to best support next generation sustainable IoT solutions.

The teams shall have the opportunity to develop their ideas within an international flagship environment being mentored by several international experts from the Next Generation IoT (NGIoT) community and being in contact with NGIoT community flagship events.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”22px”][vc_btn title=”Register your project and check the Hackathon here” style=”flat” color=”orange” size=”lg” align=”center” css_animation=”fadeInUp” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Feu-iot-hackathon.devpost.com%2F|target:_blank”][vc_empty_space height=”22px”][vc_column_text]

IoT Interfaces

Augmented Reality Interfaces based on the Smart Mirror concept

Smart mirrors are a common tool in environments such as home automation, or even retail. The starting point for this challenge is the use of a smart mirror as an IoT hub to the real world.
The aim is to integrate new features (feedback to the user) that can improve efficiency and provide a better quality of experience for the user in different environments, e.g., at home, at retail stores (example01 , example02) , in the car (example03) , on the go.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]

Far Edge

Sustainable IoT via TinyML

Tiny machine learning (TinyML) relates with the application of ML on constrained devices with low power, to perform data analytics without necessarily being connected to the Cloud.
TinyML projects focusing on this challenge are expected to address IoT solutions on the far Edge that could improve detection of collective health abnormal situations, for instance, persons without a mask on a room; abnormal temperature levels in a school; abnormal environmental situations, e.g., a potential fire; analysis of plants health, etc.
The application domains are varied: agriculture, industry, buildings, healthcare, etc.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]

Near Edge

Sustainable MEC applications

Specifically, you will be working with the fortiss ns-3 deterministic wireless/wired framework, and have the possibility to develop a concrete use-case.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]

Data Spaces

Sustainable, user-centric smart mobility

The focus of this challenge is to, based on the analysis of mobility data, come up with ideas and apps that may assist a better functioning of a smart region.
This may relate, for instance, on the development of a solution that can provide real-time information about points of interest in a city.
It may also relate with a platform, such as a dashboard, that, via data fusion and analytics, can benefit a smart city services.
Relevant to address are solutions that can improve sustainability and a green lifestyle.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]

EU-IoT and OntoCommons Workshop @ Online
Jul 7 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

EU-IoT and OntoCommons Workshop – Ontological interoperability, standardisation recommendations discussion

This online meeting is jointly organised by the Cooperation and Support Actions EU-IoT and OntoCommons. EU-IoT is working together with different standards developments organisations and supporting different Research and Innovation Activities (RIAs) to derive research recommendations and a fine-grained mapping of knowledge areas to standardisations with focus on IoT and Edge computing across different vertical domains. OntoCommons is collaborating with existing European and international initiatives which focus on the standardisation of documentation based on ontologies. The project aims to establish synergies with all relevant bodies and initiatives to ensure that it represents the interests of their stakeholder groups and that it carries over their key recommendations, roadmaps and requirements as part of the OntoCommons activities.

The meeting theme concerns semantic interoperability and specifically, the role of ontologies in providing interoperability. Semantic interoperability is one of the key pillars of open and flexible IoT systems. Ontologies are a key component of semantic interoperability, as they provide the foundation and capability for machines to interpret, infer knowledge from different data sets. Ontologies are, however, often vendor or protocol-based, and therefore, building universal ontologies or addressing mechanisms that can support an adequate interconnection across different ontologies is time-consuming and error-prone.

To assist in overcoming the mentioned challenges, this online workshop shall be dedicated to the discussion on the current status of ontological interoperability, provided by different key stakeholders and also provide a panel discussion for recommendations that can facilitate a better deployment of ontological interoperability across different vertical domains.

The expected outcome of this meeting is:

  • An overview of key priorities and challenges being addressed by different SDOs, e.g., AIOTI, BDVA/DAIRO, IAOTA, NIST, etc.
  • Feedback on recommendations that should be addressed in projects.
  • Additional suggestions for the coordination of standardization efforts.
