Internet of Things to Internet of Everything

Prof. L. Alfredo Grieco, author of more than 100 scientific papers published in international journals, Editor in Chief of the Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (Wiley) and Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular, participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Internet of Things (IoT) to Internet of Everything (IoE)”.



Along with the ever-changing definition, nature and objectives of computers, the continued evolution toward cheaper processors and faster networks has enabled a shift from desktop workstations to laptops, tablets, smart phones, to everyday connected objects, called “Internet of Things” (IoT) and now towards “Internet of Everything” (IOE).

Due to the rapid evolution towards Internet of Everything (IoE) there is a growing excitement that it will bring nations “the next Industrial Revolution” because of the way it will change the way, we the people, will live, work, entertain, shop, and travel, as well as how nations: its government, industries, organizations, and academia (NGIOA) will interact with each other within and across nations in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).

When physical objects in geospace and space become embedded with sensors and gain the ability to communicate through cyberspace, the new information and communication networks fundamentally changes the way each NGIOA operates and does things in CGS.

We the humans now live in a time where the value and competitiveness of individuals and entities across NGIOA can be enhanced significantly as they take a step forward to take advantage of these new innovative capabilities to get the most value from IoT and IoE devices and the data it generates.

As decision makers across NGIOA see the vast potential of the IoE ecosystem, they are identifying new growth opportunities by adding digital services and innovations to their current product /service mix and capitalize on the opportunity to sell new digital offerings.

We have reached a time where, those NGIOA that hesitate to benefit from the advances of Digital Global Age could be quickly outsmarted by existing and emerging competitors. Time is now to talk about Internet of Things to Internet of Everything.

About the Guest
L. Alfredo Grieco received the Dr. Eng. degree (with honors) in electronic engineering from “Politecnico di Bari,” Bari, Italy, in October 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from “Università di Lecce,” Lecce, Italy, on December 2003. From January 2005 to October 2014, he held an Assistant Professor position at the “Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica e dell’Informazione, Politecnico di Bari”. From March to June 2009, he has been a Visiting Researcher with INRIA (Planete Project, Sophia Antipolis, France), working on the topic of Internet measurements. From October to November 2013, he has been a Visiting Researcher with LAAS-CNRS (Toulouse, France) working on Information Centric Networking design of M2M systems. From November 2014, he holds an Associate Professor position in Telecommunications at Politecnico di Bari (DEI). He authored more than 100 scientific papers published in international journals and conference proceedings of great renown that gained more than 2000 citations. His main research interests include congestion control in packet-switching networks, quality of service in wireless networks, Internet multimedia applications, Internet of Things, Information Centric Networking, and Internet measurements. He serves as Editor in Chief of the Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (Wiley) and as associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (for which he has been awarded as top associate editor in 2012). He has been constantly involved as member of the Technical Program Comittees of many prestigious IEEE conferences. Within the Internet Engineering Task Force (Internet Research Task Force), he is contributing (as author of RFC 7554) new standard protocols for industrial IoT applications based on the IEEE 802.15.4e Time Slotted Channel Hopping (new standard architectures for tomorrow ICN-IoT systems). Starting from 2016 he is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE VTS.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS). Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
