Since several IoT applications demand for short response times (e.g., industrial applications, emergency management, real-time systems, health care systems) and, at the same time, rely on resource-constrained devices, the adoption of traditional Data Mining techniques is neither effective nor efficient. Therefore, conventional Data Mining techniques need to be adjusted for optimizing response times, energy consumption and data traffic while still providing adequate accuracy as required by the IoT applications. In this Special Issue, new Data Mining approaches particularly tailored for the IoT scenario will be investigated, in particular with respect to the promising, emerging novel distributed computing paradigm of Edge Computing. The focus of the special issue is therefore on high-quality original papers aiming at demonstrating&nbsp;effective and efficient Data Mining approaches at the IoT Edge, which at the same time considers data, device and infrastructure perspectives and related issues. It is worth noting that submitted papers need to show significant experimental results based on open dataset (or dataset to be made open along with the papers) and/or real experimentations, possibly complemented by simulation.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://ieee-iotj.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/SI_IOTJ_IoTEdgeMining_CFP.pdf" target="_blank">https://ieee-iotj.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/SI_IOTJ_IoTEdgeMining_CFP.pdf</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/special-issue-methods-and-infrastructures-data-mining-edge-internet-things" data-a2a-title="Special Issue on Methods and Infrastructures for Data Mining at the Edge of Internet of Things"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fspecial-issue-methods-and-infrastructures-data-mining-edge-internet-things&amp;title=Special%20Issue%20on%C2%A0Methods%20and%20Infrastructures%20for%20Data%20Mining%20at%20the%20Edge%20of%20Internet%20of%20Things"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 25 May 2020 06:34:53 +0000 editor_iot 13996 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Sylvia Kaiser-Kershaw: Smart Support in Response to COVID-19 https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/sylvia-kaiser-kershaw-smart-support-response-covid-19 <span>Sylvia Kaiser-Kershaw: Smart Support in Response to COVID-19</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>25/05/2020 - 08:27</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-txt field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>May 24, 2020The COVID-19 pandemic has caused several companies to increase their production of diagnostic tests and modify existing lines to manufacture medical devices and personal protective equipment (PPE), while others work at high speed to develop and test vaccines, treatments, health kits and antibody tests.&nbsp;Consumers around the world are doing their part, practicing social detachment and isolation to reduce the spread of the virus and minimize the impact on medical facilities.&nbsp;The desire to stay healthy has increased the demand for prevention and immunity-oriented products, including multivitamins.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.rfidjournal.com/smart-support-in-response-to-covid-19" target="_blank">https://www.rfidjournal.com/smart-support-in-response-to-covid-19</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/sylvia-kaiser-kershaw-smart-support-response-covid-19" data-a2a-title="Sylvia Kaiser-Kershaw: Smart Support in Response to COVID-19"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fsylvia-kaiser-kershaw-smart-support-response-covid-19&amp;title=Sylvia%20Kaiser-Kershaw%3A%20Smart%20Support%20in%20Response%20to%20COVID-19"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 25 May 2020 06:27:26 +0000 editor_iot 13995 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Chris Teale: Smart projects not a priority for most government CIOs, CTOs: report https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/chris-teale-smart-projects-not-priority-most-government-cios-ctos-report <span>Chris Teale: Smart projects not a priority for most government CIOs, CTOs: report</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>24/05/2020 - 08:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-txt field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Most city and county leaders do not consider "smart cities" and their corresponding technology solutions to be among their most pressing issues, according to a CompTIA Public Technology Institute (PTI) survey of CIOs, CTOs and related tech staff within local and state government.
