Seminar "Pushing IoT towards intelligent and secure devices"
RTD Laboratories

The Instituto Pedro Nunes (IPN) is organizing a Seminar Cycle on the theme From Ground to Cloud, through the Laboratory for Automation and Systems.

The seminar “Pushing IoT towards intelligent and secure devices” will take place on December 17, Thursday, starting at 11 am (CET), online. Participation is free, but registration is required here

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology helping us reimagine daily life, but artificial intelligence (AI) is the real driving force behind the IoT’s full potential.

From its most basic applications of tracking our fitness levels to its wide-reaching potential across industries and urban planning, the growing partnership between AI and the IoT means that a smarter future could occur sooner than we think.

IoT innovation is only accelerating and promises to lead us into a more connected future, as it continues to push the boundaries of data processing and intelligent learning for years to come. However, it is no secret that the current state of the internet of things, security is sub-par.

There is still much work to be done when making IoT more secure, and technology companies and manufacturers are taking notice. Despite the wide variety of cybersecurity guidelines, relatively few organizations deploying emerging technology have a mature security strategy.

This seminar will address some of the latest advances and applications of IoT and Cybersecurity by bringing together invited representatives from industry and R&D companies to present, discuss, and debate these topics.

The event will also be a platform to network and explore current funding opportunities and initiatives in artificial intelligence, internet of things, and cybersecurity.

This initiative is part of the activities of the IPN-Funding Base project under the INTERFACE Program, which aims to enhance Portuguese products through innovation, increased productivity, value creation and the incorporation of technology in the processes national companies, financed by the Fund for Innovation, Technology and Circular Economy (FITEC).
