Short Abstract:
Nowadays computing environments are occupied with a growing multitude of digital networked devices. Software agents running on such devices make them smart objects that visible in our daily lives as real objects. This technology progress follows the vision of Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, Ambient Intelligence, Semantic Web, and the more recent paradigms of Smart Spaces and Internet of Things (IoT). This course introduces the concept and methodology of Smart Spaces for creating smart services for IoT-aware computing environments. We consider the Smart-M3 platform, which provides testbed and tools for prototyping smart spaces. The students study several reference application designs, including such emerging domain areas as collaborative work, e-tourism, mobile healthcare, and Industrial Internet.

Course Contents in brief:

  • Ubiquitous computing: Internet of Things, smart services, and multi-agent systems
  • Agent interaction models: Blackboard and Publish/Subscribe
  • Semantic Web: Knowledge representation and reasoning
  • The Smart-M3 Platform: Multi-device, Multi-vendor, Multi-domain
  • Smart-M3 space applications: Architecture, design, and case studies
