TerraSwarm PI Jan Rabaey to appear at 2016 International Microwave Symposium

TerraSwarm PI Jan Rabaey will give a keynote address titled "The Human Intranet- Where Swarms and Humans Meet" at closing ceremony of the 2016 International Microwave Symposium.

The 2016 International Microwave Symposium, an annual conference and exhibition of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S), will be held in San Francisco from May 22 - 27, 2016. The event includes a week of technical sessions, interactive forums, workshops, short courses, seminars, and plenary and panel sessions for technologists focused on microwave theory and practice. The IMS trade show is expected to draw the participation of more than 600 companies. PR Newswire has posted a story about the event highlighting PI Jan Rabey's address.

Some of most compelling application domains of the IoT and Swarm concepts relate to how humans interact with the world around it and the cyberworld beyond. While the proliferation of communication and data processing devices has profoundly altered our interaction patterns, little has been changed in the way we process inputs (sensory) and outputs (actuation). The combination of IoT (Swarms) and wearable devices offers the potential for changing all of this. Yet, realizing full potential requires that a number of barriers are overcome, most notably the non-scalable nature of the current deployments.

The Human Intranet proposes an open scalable platform that seamlessly integrates an ever-increasing number of sensor, actuation, computation, storage, communication and energy nodes located on, in, or around the human body acting in symbiosis with the functions provided by the body itself. The traditional set of senses and interactions is to be augmented by a set of new capabilities, some of which might be hard to even imagine today.
