IETF-78 Update and Discussion Towards IP Addressable Smart Objects
I had participated at a Bar Birds of a Feather session [Bar BoF] on cloud computing. With over 110 individuals interested in the discussion it would be difficult at best to classify the meeting as a Bar BoF. The discussions focused on problem framing; potential applicability of IETF-based protocols, and development of IETF-based protocols therein.
By the way, the ITU-T Focus Group Cloud Computing meeting will be held September 2-6.
Switching gears a bit, to the Internet of Things (IoT), my colleague JP Vasseur along with Adam Dunkels have just published a book on the topic entitled, Interconnecting Smart Objects with IP: The Next Internet. IoT traverses several key adjacencies such as Smart and Connected Community, Smart Grid, Smart Automobile and so on.
Research continues to develop in wearable computing and in skinput technology.
