Internet of Things (IoT) sensor networks have the potential to deliver major benefits across a wide variety of industries, but designing the necessary data collection, processing, and presentation infrastructure can make them cost prohibitive. This has led to a Faustian bargain with centralized vendors who offer platform-as-a-service (PaaS) IoT solutions. Customers cede control of their sensors and all data they collect to a third party in exchange for convenient analytics. This type of… Expand
Decentralized IoT with Wattsworth
TLDR

A platform as-a-service for hybrid cloud/fog environments
TLDR
This paper proposes an architecture for a Platform as-a-Service (PaaS) to automate applications provisioning in a hybrid cloud/fog environment and Cloud Foundry is used as the basis for its implementation. Expand
A Semantic Publish-Subscribe Architecture for the Internet of Things
TLDR
A novel event detection algorithm, tailored on the IoT specificities (i.e., heterogeneous events need to be detected and continuous updates of few RDF triples dominate with respect to more complex updates), is presented along with the envisioned application design pattern and performance evaluation model.

Computing Resource Allocation in Three-Tier IoT Fog Networks: A Joint Optimization Approach Combining Stackelberg Game and Matching
TLDR
A joint optimization framework for all FNs, DSOs, and DSSs to achieve the optimal resource allocation schemes in a distributed fashion and results show that the proposed framework can significantly improve the performance of the IoT-based network systems. Expand
Towards a Decentralized Data Marketplace for Smart Cities
TLDR
This work explores how a decentralized data marketplace could be created using blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies, and considers the possible benefits and different elements that such a decentralized marketplace should have and shows how they could be potentially integrated into a comprehensive solution.

Hierarchical Fog-Cloud Computing for IoT Systems: A Computation Offloading Game
TLDR
The results reveal that by utilizing the proposed mechanism, more users benefit from computing services in comparison to an existing offloading mechanism, which significantly reduces the computation delay and enables low-latency fog computing services for delay-sensitive IoT applications. Expand
Dynamically Scaling Apache Storm for the Analysis of Streaming Data
TLDR
This paper describes the design and implementation of a tool that monitors several aspects of the Storm platform, the applications running on top of it, and external systems such as queues and databases, and decides whether extra servers are needed or machines may be decommissioned from the cluster.

IoT and distributed machine learning powered optimal state recommender solution
TLDR
This paper suggests upgrading from conventional recommendations that are based on user/ item preferences alone with systems that provide the best recommendation at the most optimal state when the user is most receptive to accept the recommendation, the “optimal state recommendation solution” and proposes solutions and architectures to overcome the challenges of dealing with real time, distributed machine learning on IoT scale data.
