The internet has and continues to revolutionize people’s lives. It connects families who live far from each other. It helps prioritize work tasks. It allows consumers to shop without having to leave their homes. It’s a way for some to obtain a degree through online education.

It’s hard to imagine a world without the internet. But with the rise of machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT), today’s internet faces serious challenges.

Through a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), a collaborative project has begun among universities nationwide to enable a faster and more secure internet. FIU is one of the universities selected to participate.
