Some More Perspectives on the Internet of Things

Our lives are constantly being driven by decisions supported by data generated by myriad of
devices (or things) connected to the Internet. These “things” as they are called, come in various shapes, sizes, and capabilities. In this talk, we will revisit some of the core concepts related to the Internet of Things. In the latter portion of the talk, we will revisit some relevant National Science Foundation programs pertaining to the various domain topics discussed.
