I’m currently at the IEEE Globecom Conference, which takes place in Abu Dhabi. It is possibly the largest scientific gathering in the field of Communications. Artificial intelligence and computer science are beginning to play an increasingly important role in this event and we’re here to learn from the experts in this field, to find out what other research groups are doing and to present our work.
The Dream Go project, in which our BISITE Research Group is involved, has been selected for the JCR report, which includes the results and objectives of Smart Grid-related projects within the Member States of the European Union.
Our BISITE Grupo participated in the Local Hack Day, which took place on the 1st of December and was organized by the Association of Computing Machines (ACM) of the University of Salamanca. This is a worldwide hackathon that gathers many ideas, projects and a lot of imagination.
Big cities like Moscow or Singapore, are undertaking changes and promoting and accelerating their transformation to become exemplary smart cities. Some of their objectives include Security, Energetic Efficiency, improved traffic management, etc.
Thanks to technology cities are becoming more efficient and sustainable, providing citizens with greater comfort. Numerous IoT platforms are being developed to deliver services to large cities, facilitating access to data collected by sensors through databases, specialised websites, etc.
I have recently attended the International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology IEEE IIT, which has taken place in Abu Dhabi. Within the framework of the European IoT Digital Innovation Hub, I have had the opportunity to present the work of the BISITE Research Group.
Blockchain is penetrating many sectors thanks to its security and transparency. These powerful qualities facilitate its application to different areas. Blockchain allows to manage information and carry out operations with complete security, for this reason, emblematic sectors, like the bank and finances, are the pioneers in the use of this technology and the leaders of many investigations.
I had the pleasure of participating as a speaker at the Seminar in Valladolid, organized by the Institute for Business Competitiveness of Castile and Leon (ICE), within the IOTEC project framework of the Interreg Spain-Portugal Program (POCTEP). At the event, we debated on the IoT and Blockchain as business drivers, exchanging ideas and information on these technologies.
