Keynote Speaker Talk: Intelligent Decision Making Methods for IoT Environments


The Internet of Things (IoT) becomes as one of the key technological developments that provide smart infrastructure for the cloud-edge services by interconnecting physical devices and virtual things between mobile applications and embedded devices. Several embedded software and hardware systems had been developed by developers to assist IoT systems in gathering information about safety-critical fields. By increasing development of IoT ecosystems, Intelligent Decision Making (IDM) paradigm is emerging as a high potential solution for processing and navigating the information of embedded IoT devices. IDM for embedded devices in IoT systems investigates the massive quantity of complex data to help industry, transportations, medical systems, microcontrollers and other smart applications. IoT, embedded devices, sensors, microprocessors, manual data entry and online sources are a few complex data sources for IDM. IDM make use of machine learning techniques to enhance the process of complex making decisions and prediction. AI tools such as Metaheuristic, Fuzzy Logic, artificial neural networks, deep learning and intelligent agents can be integrated to IDM for embedded systems in IoT. Finally, IDM-based embedded devices can be very beneficial to a range of IoT systems where complex and critical decisions are made under time pressure, decision-makers are on the move, and the environment is dynamic and uncertain. In this talk, I will describe the current status, the trend, and the future directions of IDM in the IoT. I will share our vision of future IDM-based collaborative IoT applications, with the design of a framework that supports cross-node resource management, distributed intelligence and advanced cloud-edge computing.
