Time: Wednesday 09:00 - 09:50 / Location: Effectenbeurszaal

A computer controlling your car is easy to imagine, but how about a computer saving you money on your energy bills, and helping you predict the impact of your lifestyle changes? The Internet of Things gives us unprecedented access to data from physical objects, but how to you make decisions about these data in a safe, secure, and intuitive way?

I will talk about how fundamental research in Cyber-Physical Systems is paving the way for societal-scale systems where software+communication+control will enable you to decide and be happy with how much control to hand over to the autonomous systems that will surround us in the coming decades.
