VersaSense CTO and Co-founder Danny Hughes, PhD, will deliver the keynote presentation at SEAMS 2018, the 13th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems, in Gothenburg, Sweden. SEAMS is a key meeting place for the self-adaptive software engineering research community.
The presentation is titled “Self-adaptive software systems are essential for the Internet of Things” and is inspired by the VersaSense belief that reconfiguration and adaptation are crucial to achieving the Gartner prediction of 20 billion IoT devices in service by 2020.
In this presentation, Danny will discuss his decade of experience in applying run-time reconfiguration and self-adaptive software engineering techniques to tackle the toughest IoT problems facing the industry. This includes: sustainable battery-free sensing, seamless network coexistence and in-situ sensor calibration.
