Speech Title: Decentralized Systems and the Internet of Things
Many Internet of Things protocols, systems and applications are designed under the assumption that all components, albeit distributed across many devices and users, can be operated and managed within a single, centralized, administrative domain. However, large-scale IoT applications such as for smart cities require exchanging data and computation across trust and administrative boundaries. I will describe some of the challenges in designing such decentralized IoT systems, and how they could be addressed through the development and deployment of marketplaces for data and computation, and the application of blockchain technology.
