Dr Zaslavsky is a Senior Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO Computational Informatics, CSIRO, Australia ( ). He is an Adjunct Professor at Australian National University, Canberra, and at University of New South Wales, Sydney. He is also a research professor at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden.


The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the pillars of Future Internet and will connect billions of "things", where things include computers, smartphones, sensors, objects from everyday life with embedded computational and communication capabilities and the list goes on and on. Each of those things will have their physical and/or virtual identity, attributes, intelligent interfaces, componentised functionality and standardised communication protocols. The Internet of Things will be generating massive amounts of data that will have to be stored, validated, processed and communicated to relevant services, applications and systems. This talk focuses on the challenges of dealing with the big data produced by the IoT, discovery of relevant and useful data for various services and applications, representing semantics and enriching IoT data with semantics, transforming IoT data into context and integrating these into knowledge. The talk will also present various CSIRO projects in IoT domain, including EU FP7 OpenIoT and SensMA which deal with enabling open flexible sensor-based information systems middleware. OpenIoT brings together sensing and cloud computing and is an efficient platform for handling big IoT data.
