Internet of Things and Business Transformation
August 4 - August 17, 2019
In this Summer School the focus is on Internet of Things (IoT) as a main driver for future digital infrastructures. With the advances of ICT, billions of “things” will collaborate through a reliable, efficient and secure network, using distributed storage and computing resources.
Fully functioning IoT requires new technical solutions in three large technology areas. Firstly, embedded systems, for energy efficient sensing and actuation. Secondly, communication and networked system for connecting the huge number of devices. And thirdly computing, data analytics and visualization for the IoT-based applications.
With the development of IoT solutions the business ecosystems of the traditional telecommunication sector are challenged but also provides new opportunities for existing as well as emerging industries.
The Summer School programme is case and project oriented, where students will be supported by introductory and supplementary lectures, invited talks from small and large IoT enterprises, as well as by continuous coaching by technical and I&E experts. During the week-end trip, students will explore the Stockholm area.
In this program students will learn:
- to analyze the implication a new technology area might have on society, individuals and businesses
- to identify emerging business roles and opportunities
- to understand how digital infrastructure technology areas may impact and enlarge the market and industry for communication systems and services.
- to recognize values and opportunities that emanate from the enabling properties of emerging technology
What happened at this location in the previous year
- Speakers from Ericsson, ABB, Yanzi Networks, THINGS, SMSE and Nordic Semiconductor gave participants insight into three IoT enablers- communication, sensing and data processing.
- Participants worked on cases aiming to apply IoT solutions to areas of agriculture, consumer electronics, environment, health and well-being, process industry, infrastructure, banking and retail, transportation, and utilities.
