IoT for HEALTHY Smart Cities

ISTAR-ISCTE, LISBON - PORTUGAL : SEPT 6 -SEPT 17. 2021.

About

Every year, ISTAR – Center for Research in Information Sciences, Technologies and Architecture (IUL) – hosts a Summer School Program dedicated to the central themes of the ongoing multidisciplinary research which involve the areas of Science and Information Technology, Architecture, Mathematics and the IoT laboratory. The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a growing field of research as humans and equipment are connected and embedded with smart technology. Considering the recent challenges in the area of Smart Anything (-Cities, -Networks, -Factories, -Buildings, -Home, -Health, -Education and -Campus), this year, the ISTAR Summer School offers the possibility to explore the IoT in the context of smart health, bringing together a multidisciplinary team (computer sciences, medicine and data science) and taking advantage of the existing conditions in the IoT laboratory. The IoT laboratory is equipped for a wide range of research tasks such as acquisition and transmission of sensor data to data management platforms, visualization and data analysis platforms, thus encouraging multidisciplinary research in diverse fields of electronics, communication, security, usability, data analytics and BIM models (the data of buildings).

Goals

The  objective of this Summer School is to introduce participants to emergent computing paradigms, technologies, services and business models associated with Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Anything.

It also provides an overview of future trends and ongoing research in this new and fast-growing area:
– Study the principles, research problems and applications of device, software and user mobility, as well as IoT;
– Acquire experience with IoT technologies and operating systems;
– Help students to develop self-study skills so that they can keep up with the rapidly changing technologies, tools and techniques in this knowledge area.

 

The school provides an overview of future trends and ongoing research in this fast-growing area:

  • Study the principles, research problems and applications of device, software and IoT
  • Acquire experience with IoT technologies and operating systems
  • Understand, in practical experience, how to run user-centred projects based on Design Thinking
  • Help students to develop self-study skills to keep up with the rapidly changing technologies, tools and techniques in this knowledge area.

The school runs  from Sept 6 to Sep/2021 and consists of 10 hours of expert lectures,anchored by 19 1/2 hours of hands-on training on key topics that include:

  • Introduction to  IoT
  • Design Thinking
  • Security
  • Tiny Machine Learning and Applications
  • Applications and challenges on Health and Crowdsourcing
  • There is an industrial session with presentations by three companies in Portugal that develop and apply IoT techniques.

Participants will work on supervised, hands-on projects developed at the ISTAR Internet of Everything Lab, as well as provided basic training on

  • IoT frameworks (e.g. Arduino, LORA communications, and sensors)
  • Data science tools (Python, Data Analytics introduction)
  • Design Thinking methodologies

 

Main Topics

Go to IoT for Anything

IoT for Anything

Smart Anything encompasses Smart Cities, Smart Building, Smart Education and Smart Health and the new range of IoT Communications (with emphasis on Lora because of the existing Cisco infrastructure)

Go to Smart Health

Smart Health

COVID Information extraction from text at Hospital and Social Network, COVID Image Information Extraction and COVID Remote monitor process

Go to Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing

Identify relevant patterns in the city about health and sustainability concerns in user-generated content.

Go to AI & Neuromorphic Computing

AI & Neuromorphic Computing

Learn about novel and emerging AI technology for low-cost devices and sensors, leveraging lightweight AI frameworks.

Why Attend?

This Summer School gives a view of the potential and state of machine learning technology for  on small, lightweight edge devices: anomaly detection, trigger command recognition, keyword spotting.

This course  will be developed on an international and  transdisciplinary environment, during 2 weeks. The training includes talks + hands-on and seminars,  plus autonomous work that can be developed at the IoT Lab, equivalent to 6 ECTS.

You should attend this Summer School, if you are interested in:
– New challenges of Smart Anything, Smart Cities, Smart Building, Smart Education and Smart Health and the new range of IoT Communications (with emphasis on Lora because of the existing Cisco infrastructure)
– Learn easily to program sensors and transmit real-time data to IoT platforms
– Perform Data analytics over sensor data using IoT platforms to create knowledge and identify patterns
– Data visualization
– Interact with BIM models
– Handle security issues on IoT
– Interact with gamification platforms in the context of IoT
– Create small applied projects that can be used for Smart Home.

Students that are awarded Summer scholarships may further develop their project concept from the Summer School on follow-on R&D Projects in smart  {cities, buildings, education and health}.
