On Monday 6/5/2019 Dr. Yannis Psarras Lecturer at University College London will make the following presentation. The presentation will take place at the 2nd floor workshop (234, DG building) at 16:00.

Abstract: The emerging Internet of Things needs edge-computing - this is an established fact. In turn, edge computing needs infrastructure decentralisation. What is not necessarily established yet is that infrastructure decentralisation needs a distributed model of Internet governance and decentralised trust schemes. We discuss the features of a decentralised IoT and edge-computing ecosystem and list the components that need to be designed, as well the challenges that need to be addressed.
