The internet of things is a concept that is used in many different contexts, such as talking to Alexa or connecting to your smart thermostat. At Northeastern, researchers are envisioning the internet of things in the context of a much more interconnected world.
It’s the interface that allows people to connect the physical world with the cyber world, using autonomous wireless networks, systems, and devices that tackle some of the world’s most important problems, said Tommaso Melodia, Northeastern’s William Lincoln Smith Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
