iCore receives the runner-up demonstration award at FuNeMS 2012 – Berlin (Germany)
iCore project presented an early prototype of its initial research findings at the Future Network and Mobile Summit 2012 and received the "Runner-Up Demonstration Stand" award.
The Future Network and Mobile Summit 2012 took place in the Berlin, Germany, 04 - 06 July. This was the twenty-first in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 500 delegates from industry and research. The conference is organised in technical sessions and has a large space dedicated to exhibitions and demonstrations (21 in this year’s edition) from running EU projects.
The iCore demonstration, which was a joint effort between University of Piraeus and CREATE-NET showed a working implementation of how IoT and cognitive technologies can be used to empower ICT applications in a Smart Home environment. Namely it showed what can be achieved virtualising sensing and actuating objects (iCore concept of Virtual Object), how VOs can be enriched with service logic (iCore concept of Composite Virtual Object) and used in a personalised way fitting the user context. Moreover, the demo showed how the use of cognitive technologies supports the user in the selection of the most appropriate objects to fit the application requirements, reusing as necessary objects outside the purpose for which they were originally deployed.
