Enabling the Next Generation of IoT-enhanced Smart Communities


Buildings, homes and other spaces are becoming smarter and interconnected with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and their supported technologies. Current IoT-enhanced ecosystems include IoT devices to sense physical phenomena, data exchange systems to collect, process and exchange data between devices (sensors/actuators), and IoT applications that provide services to improve, among others, life quality and public safety. While such applications can leverage Edge-based infrastructures to exchange data, IoT ecosystems need to dynamically evolve over time due to additional IoT sources/recipients, new IoT applications, workload spikes, failing nodes and lossy network channels. In this talk, I will present PrioDeX, a middleware-based solution for prioritized data exchange during emergency response situations, as well as the TIPPERS real  deployment at the University of California Irvine. In addition, I will describe my ongoing and future research agenda that is related to the next generation of IoT systems for smart communities. In particular, I will provide an overview of the following research directions: (i) AI planning-enabled smart spaces for optimized data exchange; (ii) publish/subscribe federation for wide-spread IoT applications; and (iii) IoT planning for infrastructure placement.

About the speaker

Georgios Bouloukakis has been an Associate Professor in the Computer Science department of Télécom SudParis (TSP) / Institute Polytechnique de Paris since Nov. 2020. His research interests relate to Middleware, Edge Computing, Internet of Things and Distributed Systems. Before joining TSP, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California Irvine, USA in the Distributed Systems Middleware group. He obtained his Ph.D. from UPMC/Sorbonne in 2017, conducting his thesis at the research center of INRIA Paris, France in the MiMove team. He has received funding from IP Paris, INRIA@SiliconValley and CORDI-S to conduct his main research projects. His research has been published in a number of top-tier conferences, including ICPE, Mobiquitous, ICSOC, ICDCS, Middleware, Buildsys, VLDB and IoTDI, as well as the TIOT, FGCS and JISA journals.
