Dangers and opportunities with the development of connected gadgets

In the latest episode of the podcast “Forskaren och jag”, Paul Davidsson, director of the Internet of Things and People research center, is interviewed.

Online gadgets, smart things or the Internet of Things. Dear child has many names. But are there only advantages that people are becoming increasingly dependent on gadgets that require connection? According to Professor Paul Davidsson, there are both disadvantages and opportunities with this development. Hear his thoughts about the future, which to some extent is already here.

Blerim Emruli | New IOTAP Postdoc

The challenge of making sense of big data. That is one of the research challenges that engages Blerim Emruli, postdoc in computer science, Malmö University. At IOTAP, Emruli will focus on understanding how to explore and model the data but also investigate the flexibility and adaptability of the delivered solutions.

Blerim, which are your research interests?
My research interest is in the field of artificial intelligence that is a prominent branch of computer science, which enables devices, computers and machines to unleash intelligent behaviour.

Minister visit | Helene Hellmark Knutsson visited Malmö University and IOTAP Research Center

Helene Hellmark Knutsson, Minister of Higher Education and Research, visited Malmö University together with the chairman of Malmö City Council, Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh and Vice Chancellor of Malmö University, Kerstin Tham. In the IOTAP research lab, they learned how researchers are working on Internet of Things. They also had an opportunity to learn more about the Pelars platform, which was demonstrated by PhD student David Cuartielles. The Pelars platform can be used to study how teachers understand how students learn math and technology.

Workshop invitation | The Future of Transports: Opportunities and Challenges using IoT

Transports in the future will most certainly make use of the Internet of Things (IoT) to realize new services and products. For instance, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), shared mobility, self-driving/autonomous vehicles, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, are already starting to reshape the transportation system.

We invite you – as policymaker, researcher or technology developer – who have ideas about, experience of, or interest in how IoT technology can support and advance the development of future transport systems.

Together, we will be visionaries about the future of smart transport, identifying new and interesting research opportunities. We will discuss what transport scenarios can be […] Continue reading

Lars Holmberg | New IOTAP PhD student

Malmö University has a strong tradition of research within the areas of computer science and interaction design. One of those who thinks it’s an important research area is PhD student Lars Holmberg at IOTAP. In his PhD project he will focus on the interaction between human users and systems based on artificial intelligence.

Lars, which are your research interests?

During my career as a computer scientist, a main focus has been the interaction between humans and technology.

“Interaction between humans and technology”, can you explain a bit further what you mean with that?

I have mostly been interested in converting […] Continue reading

Agnes Tegen | New IOTAP PhD student

The IOTAP research center at Malmö University has a tradition of working interdisciplinary and involving researchers from different backgrounds and expertise. This is one of the reasons why PhD student Agnes Tegen decided to start as a PhD student at IOTAP. In her PhD project she will bring a user experience perspective and explore ways to design intelligent IoT systems.

Agnes, which are your research interests?

My main research interests related to Internet of Things and People are about embedded intelligence, distributed artificial intelligence, sensor-intensive systems and machine learning. I’m also interested in the users’ perspective of technological solutions and I’m […] Continue reading
