Faculty Seminar: Dr. Pankesh Patel“Closing the Gap: Accelerating Application Development in the Internet of Things”
Abstract: Application development for the Internet of Things is challenging because it involves dealing with the heterogeneity that exists both in Physical and Cyberworlds. Second, stakeholders involved in the application development have to address issues pertaining to different life-cycles ranging from design, implementation to deployment. In view of this, I will be presenting our research work and projects, which are carried out during my tenure in different industrial labs.
