Modeling the Internet of Things (& People): A Foundational Approach
Spencer J. Breiner, Eswaran Subrahmanian, Ram D. Sriram
This talk provides an overview of recent NIST work in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain in the Information Technology Laboratory. We begin with some examples and illustrations of the range of IoT systems. In addition to the obvious cyber physical aspects of the IoT, we must also consider human factors including both individuals, organizations and social networks. From here we turn to look at today's landscape of IoT standards, finding that it is largely fragmented, with many competing platforms and standards. In the abscence of top-down agreement on which to choose, we discuss some formal methods for linking together divergent ontologies based on the mathematics of category theory.
