The protection of users and Internet-connected devices, such as mobile phones and laptops, has typically been achieved through installing appropriate specific tools on each device (e.g. a personal firewall, malware analyser, parental control application). This model requires computational resources, per device application availability and usually it makes security controls a real puzzle for non-technically savvy […]
Initially developed by the SPECIFI project, the Creative Ring is a new experimental community offering a networking place for artists, creative talents and stakeholders working in the Creative Industries. It aims at providing a collaborative environment to exchange ideas, new projects, technical components and set up unprecedented performances (discover more on the Creative Ring website).
The advent of the software defined networking (SDN) paradigm with its associated open programmable device interfaces and controllers has pushed virtualisation forward toward the goal of mainstream adoption within the Telco domain. The term network functions virtualization (NFV) has emerged in recent year’s which defines the process of virtualizing network functions such as gateways, proxies, […]
Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular in order to minimize costs on the user side. Users rather move data to the cloud than purchasing another external storage medium. So far, no satisfactory solutions exist in terms of data security, so providers and users of cloud computing do not really have a trusting relationship. On top […]
TRESCIMO improves Future Internet Research Experimentation testbed capabilities in Europe and in South Africa, demonstrated through experimental research linking smart and green technological and social innovation. The project is analyzing functional and non-functional requirements coming from environments in emerging countries in order to feed them into the development of a Smart City platform, which allows […]
A novel application for advanced augmented reality – called Percipio AR (Augmented Reality) – will be revealed to public for the first time during the exhibition. Users having Percipio AR on their smartphones or other mobile devices can be navigated through unknown environment while being well guided and notified on what they see. Percipio AR […]
The URB-Grade project designs, develops and validates a Platform for Decision Support that will allow the city authorities and utilities to promote and choose the correct actions to upgrade a district to become more energy efficient, cost effective and to increase comfort for its citizens in a District as a Service Platform (DaaS Platform) approach. […]
In the context of a smart city the vision of integrating IoT platforms, testbeds and, in general, other silo application is associated with several scientific challenges. A common need is to register, identify sensors and aggregate data and ensure the interoperability of data stemming from different IoT platforms or test beds, likewise it is necessary […]
