Internet of Things: Challenges and Opportunities in Geographic Information Science

Monica Wachowicz, People in Motion Lab. University of New Brunswick, Canada

Internet of Things (IoT) has secured its position as one of the most promising technologies for supporting many applications in smart cities. Currently, we have countless IoT applications in many sectors, which include but are not limited to digital health, agriculture, environment, retail, manufacturing/industrial, supply chain, energy, transportation/mobility, and housing. There is a greater need to develop intelligent spatio-temporal models to cope with future demands from IoT applications, particularly because large-scale and fast data streams increase model complexity and computational requirements grow exponentially. It is critical to re-think how the current practices in Geographic Information Science could be improved to become more suited to cope with the demands from both virtual and geographic worlds of the Internet of Things. This talk discusses the state-of-the-art research in the Internet of Things and the principles of Geographic Information Science for developing intelligence everywhere models, and raises a collection of open challenges and opportunities.

Dr. Monica Wachowicz is full professor in Data Science, and the Cisco Innovation Chair in Big Data and the NSERC/Cisco Industrial Research Chair in Mobility Analytics at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. She is also the Director of the People in Motion Laboratory, a center of expertise in the application of Internet of Things to smart cities. Her research interests include spatial edge intelligence, machine learning on graphs, streaming analytics, and IoT applications. She works at the intersection of (1) streaming analytics for analyzing massive IoT data streams in search of understanding human behavior in real-time; and (2) Cartography for designing maps for a world in which "intelligence" will be embedded in virtually everything around us. Founding member of the Technical Committee on Big Data (TCBD), IEEE Communications Society and former Editor of IJGIS, she has over 300 publications. Her pioneering work in multidisciplinary teams from government, industry and research organizations is fostering the next generation of geospatial data scientists for a resilient world.
