When SciFi Becomes Reality: Deep Learning & IoT Testing

Th5     Start Time : 11:00     End Time : 11:45

Talk Abstract:

In 1961, Stanislaw Lem, the author of science-fiction novels, raised an interesting problem in one of his books – when the number of computers in the world exceeds the ability of people to control them, the correctness of their operation will have to be verified also by machines: computers will test computers.

Almost 60 years later, the phenomenon of the Internet of Things makes us, people, surrounded by computers: clouds of small machines hidden in clothes, everyday objects, buildings…. How to effectively test such complex systems? Mr. Lem’s idea comes in handy: let’s get other computers to work: we can use artificial intelligence – because it’s no longer a science-fiction!

In my speech, I would like to present in a simple and funny way the idea of applying deep learning in the process of testing complex IoT systems. I want to explain a general idea and then I will show solutions and tools that allow for effective testing of the Internet of Things, like TensorFlow – an open source library available for everyone.

Key Takeaways:

  1. We can effectively test Internet of Things with Artificial Intelligence solutions, such as deep learning.
  2. Deep learning tools and libraries are generally available for commercial purposes and easy to use.
  3. It is not a science fiction – we can use deep learning to test Internet of Things just on the next day after the talk.
