Message from the Editors

While COVID-19 continues to disrupt everyday life around the world, vaccines are no longer a distant hope but a reality which should gradually enable communities to come back together in person. Artificial Intelligence (AI), sometimes assailed as a threat to our society, has played a major role in this by radically catalysing vaccine research and development, meaning something which has traditionally taken years to develop has become possible in months.[1] Hot on the heels of this, Google DeepMind’s AI system AlphaFold has been recognised as a solution to working out the “protein folding problem”, something which has stood as one of biology’s grandest challenges for the past 50 years and could further revolutionise life sciences and medicine, again demonstrating the positive impact AI can have on scientific discovery and everyday life.[2]

AI will continue to form an important part of the CRC Press Computer Science publishing program –including a new series of short accessible books entitled AI for Everything, which is in rapid development – alongside a wide range of other topics which are driving this exciting field forwards.

How to Introduce Your Students to IoT Analytics

Written by Harry G. Perros, Author of An Introduction to IoT Analytics.

‘What is IoT?’

Firstly, begin by explaining to the students that IoT, Internet of Things, is a paradigm shift that is slowly becoming part of our daily lives. There are numerous IoT applications in all aspects of our lives, such as, applications for smart cities, structural health, traffic congestion, smart environment, smart water, smart metering, assisted living, healthcare, security and emergency, smart retail, smart agriculture, and smart animal farming. I like to describe it to my non-technical friends as: “whatever has nothing to do with the Internet, will be eventually connected to the Internet!”. In fact, connectivity to the Internet is only a small part of IoT. An IoT application is a closed-loop system that consists of sensors, a server, a network connecting the sensors to the server, and a database that stores the information (...)
