The IoT Digital Innovation Hub is organizing Community Day: “Cybersecurity in Industry 5.0”, an event that will take place in the framework of the DIH-World project in which it participates. The event is aimed at SMEs, industry experts, universities, students, public administrations, research groups and project partners.

The objective of the IoT Digital Innovation Hub and the innovation driving organizations that will participate in this event is to help companies, especially SMEs to be more competitive by adopting the technologies of the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, blockchain or cybersecurity in their processes, products or services.

The event will be held online on May 6 and will feature the presentation of Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE Research Group and president of the AIR Institute, who will discuss IoT DIH and some of the projects the hub is developing. In addition, there will be a second session during which Juan Manuel Corchado will analyze the importance of cybersecurity in the so-called Industry 5.0.

During the event, the DeepSIEM platform will be presented, a solution that centralizes the logs of an organization and analyzes them in real time in search of threats.

Afterwards, a round table will be organized with short presentations of projects and success stories from AIR Institute and other collaborating companies.

Success stories on IoT and cybersecurity-based projects

Among the projects to be presented are the following:

UPPER project (aUgmented reality and smart Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for intelligent pRevention of occupational hazards and accessibility): an initiative through which smart personal protective equipment (PPE) has been designed with smart fabrics, sensors and actuators to monitor the health of workers and the environment, composing a network of interconnected sensors.

SMART FARM: this project has developed a system that measures the amount of feed or grain inside a silo. It also allows to collect data through gas, temperature and humidity sensors, so that the conservation conditions of the grain can be known. Different types of electronic devices have been implemented to visualize the desired parameters on an online platform in real time, such as the level of feed in the silos or the weight level of the rabbit breeding cages.

InTelWINE: a project that aims to investigate new techniques of precision viticulture and food safety that incorporate hybrid algorithms of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Reinforcement Learning capable of homogenizing processes and transferring the knowledge of experts to a system that guarantees the quality of the wine that reaches the consumer.

It will certainly be a very informative event, during which we will learn about new projects and will have the opportunity to discuss the future of innovation in the industry 5.0. If you are interested in participating, click here to register.
