IoT and the Smart Connected World

Track Description
Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are increasingly permeating our lives. IoT forms the fundamental building block of autonomous vehicles, wearables, robots, drones, smart homes, and smart cities. As a result, the interplay of people, computing, data, and things is evolving. We connect to friends, family members, colleagues, and communities 24/7, and we interact with objects surrounding us, such as our fridge, car, drones, or even robots. Indeed, receiving data from embedded sensors and other similar devices that monitor health conditions and other aspects of life has become integral of our everyday life and routines. In addition, IoT is transforming business strategies (e.g., GE), product design, product development, operations, supply chains, healthcare, environmental monitoring, security, and other services.

IoT is already ubiquitous and is expected to exponentially grow in its usage. Further, with 5G technology and its ability to connect millions of IoT devices, innovation in products and services is expected to only go up. With IoT and connected world, data are expected to grow exponential requiring new ways to collect, store, process, secure, and analyze for insights and prediction. McKinsey Global Institute expect the global economic impact to be as much as $11 trillion per year by 2025 across various sectors. With the growth of IoT and connected world, many interesting research issues arise that span data science, organizational, behavioral, design, and economics.
