Personal Data Store, Smart Cities Data Marketplaces, and Sensing as a Service for Internet of Things (Self-Funded Only)


Cardiff School of Computer Science & Informatics

About the Project

The Internet of Things envisions the creation of an environment where everyday objects (e.g., microwaves, fridges, cars, coffee machines) are connected to the Internet and make users’ lives more productive, efficient, and convenient. During this process, everyday objects capture a vast amount of data that can be used to understand individuals and their behaviors. In the current IoT ecosystems, such data is collected and used only by the respective IoT solutions. There is no formal way to share data with external entities. We believe this is very inefficient and unfair for users. We believe that users, as data owners, should be able to control, manage, and share data about them in any way that they choose and make or gain value out of them. In this project, student will propose the sensing as a service (S2aaS) model.

The potential PhD student may take this project towards either systems or data science. A potential systems project will explore how to develop novel infrastructure components to support personal data stores and data marketplaces. A potential data science project may look at novel data discovery techniques, data wrangling techniques, data analytics and so on.
