Topic of Presentation:IOT and Big Data

In these days, there is a growing interest in providing connection, communication, and inter-networking between devices, physical objects, and people, or "Things”. Referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) or Internet of Everything (IoE), it encompasses technologies and solutions that enable integration of real world data and services into the current information networks. IoT connects large number of things (sensors, actuators, tags etc) to run variety of applications.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept where physical objects are connected to the Internet and are able to identify themselves to other devices.   Most people understand the benefits of being connected with computers, tablets and smart phones. IoT describes a world where anything can be connected and can communicate in an intelligent fashion. In other words, with the Internet of Things, the physical world is becoming one big information system. A variety of applications can be designed for IoT Systems. However, there ae lot of challenges in meaningful use of IoT and Big Data Analytics is one of the most important of these.

With data coming from different sources, there is a need to store and analyze such huge amounts of data. Big data is the term for a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications. The challenges include capture, storage, search, sharing, transfer, analysis and visualization of such large data sets. Big Data is characterized by Variety, Volume and Velocity. There are different types of data: structured, semi structured and unstructured. The presence of unstructured data emanating from different applications is another major challenge. Analyzing unstructured data to retrieve information needs the use of different techniques.

The trend to use larger data sets is due to the additional information derivable from analysis of a single large set of related data, and the subject of Big Data Analytics has emerged. The talk will discuss different aspects of IoT and Big Data.
