This comprehensive text/reference presents a broad-ranging overview of device connectivity in distributed computing environments, supporting the vision of an Internet of Things (IoT). Expert perspectives are provided by an international selection of researchers from both industry and academia, covering issues of communication, security, privacy, interoperability, networking, access control, and authentication. In addition to discussing state-of-the-art research and practice, the book includes corporate analyses offering a balanced view of benefits and limitations, and numerous case studies illustrating the challenges and practical solutions. Topics and features: discusses issues of security and privacy in connected environments, with a specific focus on the impact of the IoT paradigm on enterprise information systems; examines the challenges of managing big data in IoT environments, and proposes cloud computing-based solutions to the limitations inherent in the IoT paradigm; suggests approaches to overcome service-level interoperability problems in the IoT environment; introduces a mobile IoT simulator designed to evaluate the behavior of IoT systems, in addition to a novel approach to manage hyper-connectivity in the IoT; describes the use of the Essence framework to model software development methods, and highlights the benefits of integrating data from smart buildings and IoT devices; presents an asymmetric schema matching mechanism for IoT interoperability, and explores the topic of automatic provenance capture at the middleware level; reviews emerging network topologies and communication technologies, and advises on the adoption of a data distribution service as a middleware platform for IoT systems. This practically-oriented volume serves as a complete reference for students, researchers and practitioners of distributed computing, providing insights into the latest approaches, technologies, and frameworks relevant to the IoT environment.
As innovators continue to explore and create new developments within the fields of artificial intelligence and computer science, subfields such as machine learning and the internet of things (IoT) have emerged. Now, the internet of everything (IoE), foreseen as a cohesive and intelligent connection of people, processes, data, and things, is theorized to make internet connections more valuable by converting information into wise actions that create unprecedented capabilities, richer experiences, and economic opportunities to all players in the market. Harnessing the Internet of Everything (IoE) for Accelerated Innovation Opportunities discusses the theoretical, design, evaluation, implementation, and use of innovative technologies within the fields of IoE, machine learning, and IoT. Featuring research on topics such as low-power electronics, mobile technology, and artificial intelligence, this book is ideally designed for computer engineers, software developers, investigators, advanced-level students, professors, and professionals seeking coverage on the various contemporary theories, technologies, and tools in IoE engineering.
