The latest news, including research updates and insights from world-leading experts on IoT topics impacting industry, the general public and the global governance of the Internet of Things.
This presentation will introduce speculative design and design fiction as methods and discuss how they might be of particular interest to PETRAS researchers. It will describe how such approaches can be used both to consider possible futures and to interrogate these potential futures in order to support the design and development of technologies and systems in the present.
The REG-MEDTECH project has just published a White Paper entitled "The Future of Medical Device Regulation and Standards: Dealing with Critical Challenges for Connected, Intelligent Medical Devices", in partnership with BSI, the UK National Standards Body. The paper reviews the main trends in the existing standards and regulatory landscape applicable to connected, intelligent medical devices (CIMDs) and captures critical challenges and potential gaps in this area.
New digital technologies are making an impact when it comes to helping us make sense of the natural environment as we try to future-proof our world in the face of climate change. Yet, our current approach of creating new but often disposable hardware and devices that generate, process and store copious amounts of data via systems like AI and ML, also raises the prospect of a technological double-edged sword.
Researchers from the CyFer project, funded by PETRAS, UK, are examining cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust in FemTech. Female-oriented technologies (FemTech) promise to enable people to take control of their bodies and lives, helping them overcome the many existing challenges in medical care and research.
The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity’s work was highlighted in parliamentary debates on an amendment to strengthen cybersecurity in children’s products in the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill.
The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and harnessing their economic value represents a process that takes place continually at the intersection of developments in three major domains: social, technical, and economic. We call these interrelated collections of physical and digital objects (sensors, data stores, 3rd parties, business models, actuators, and so on) IoT constellations.
The PETRAS Edge of Tomorrow (ET) project from Lancaster University took their Prometheus Game to Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2022. The game was situated in the Festival’s Arcade zone, which was visited by over 24 thousand attendees over the course of the week.
Dr. Hongmei (Mary) He, School of Computer Science and Informatics at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) has been awarded a CyberASAP grant to commercialise the research results of their PETRAS project, CoSTCMoRS (Cognitive and Socio-Technical Cyber Security for Modern Railway Systems).
The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity was delighted to host the two-day PETRAS Academic Community Conference | Networking & Research Showcase on the 16-17 June 2022 in London’s Goodenough College.
