In 2011 the LTSI-project was launched to identify and reduce duplicate work being done by vendors. We are now 4.5 years into the process and we wanted to see how well we are doing and specifically have the following questions answered:
To answer these questions we enhanced the techniques powering the original Yaminabe project (the research that prompted us to start LTSI). These new methods allow us to make comparisons of source code to a Git forest (all branches in many Git trees).
In this talk we will explain the techniques that are used, the design decisions that we made and results we obtained using these methods and what they mean and (hopefully) answer the questions that we asked ourselves.
We are at the beginning of a new era of computing technologies where almost every device communicates with each other or the environment. It’s all about the Internet of things (IoT).
A major line of investigation is the smart home and about the benefits of having one and what it takes to make a home "smart". These solutions may make your life easier and could free more time. How cool is to be able to remotely control the temperature, lights, music or garage door?
The smart house system runs on a Brillo OS device which exposes standard peripherals’ APIs and can be controlled through the standard Weave interface using your Google account with commands like: open_garage_door, set_living_temperature, play_song or close_curtains.
For the moment we only implemented this solution on a miniature house, but we are looking forward to extend it to a larger scale and use it in real life.
The BOF session is a discussion about the status and future of the two open source standard initiatives - their current status and how they may and should evolve to meet the objective of an open, non-proprietary standard for IOT. Will there ever be single, open and unified standard for IOT? The discussion leader is Art Lancaster, CTO of Affinegy and Chair of the Gateway Working group of the AllSeen Alliance - where protocol and external interfaces reside.
The Internet of Things puts the physical world squarely into the hands of the software developer. As we inject intelligence, connectivity and IT features into the physical world, we risk leaving the end user, a domain expert in her own right, behind. The IoT devices and systems that ultimately design for the physical end user will see the fastest adoption and bring the greatest industry transformation.
He argues that it doesn’t matter whether data is big or little, it only matters if you can create actionable insight from it.
