Speech Title: Smart Assistance Services based on Multisource Sensing and Data Mining in Tactile Internet

Abstract: Many digital devices (mobile or embedded) appear near people due to the Internet of Things (IoT). Such devices are sensors that enable cooperative service construction on the sensed data. A service acts as a smart assistant in the given IoT environment. Information on participants and processes become “tactual” online (close to real-time), leading to the Tactile Internet Paradigm. Tactile Internet is the next evolution of the IoT, encompassing human-to-machine and machine-to-machine interaction in services. A smart service is characterized by such intelligence properties as context-awareness, ubiquitous access, adaptation, personalization, pro-active delivery, information ranking, and others. Service intelligence can be created based on the Ambient Intelligence (AmI), where data mining methods play the key role in information fusing and knowledge extraction from the sensed multisource data. IoT environment provides multisource data and sensing possibilities. Data sources are people, information systems, Internet services, smart IoT objects, and embedded and mobile sensors. The data are fused and analyzed to derive the proper information to assist the user. The analysis is in the form of smart information services that make analytics over the sensed data primarily at the Internet edges. In this talk, we review the following open problems of construction smart assistance services based on multisource sensing and data mining in Tactile Internet.
• Services provide analytics in real-time using edge IoT devices.
• Applying AI methods to robotic movement analysis with very fast response.
• Assistance services based on event recognition in video data.
• Programming smart services for IoT environments as an information system of agents.

Biography: Dmitry Korzun received his B.Sc. (1997) and M.Sc. (1999) degrees in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from the Petrozavodsk State University (PetrSU, Russia).
