Cyber Security of the Internet of Things

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Science, Tech, Eng and Public Policy

Abstract

Today we use many objects not normally associated with computers or the internet. These include gas meters and lights in our homes, healthcare devices, water distribution systems and cars. Increasingly, such objects are digitally connected and some are transitioning from cellular network connections (M2M) to using the internet: e.g. smart meters and cars - ultimately self-driving cars may revolutionise transport. This trend is driven by numerous forces. The connection of objects and use of their data can cut costs (e.g. allowing remote control of processes) creates new business opportunities (e.g. tailored consumer offerings), and can lead to new services (e.g. keeping older people safe in their homes).

This vision of interconnected physical objects is commonly referred to as the Internet of Things. The examples above not only illustrate the vast potential of such technology for economic and societal benefit, they also hint that such a vision comes with serious challenges and threats. For example, information from a smart meter can be used to infer when people are at home, and an autonomous car must make quick decisions of moral dimensions when faced with a child running across on a busy road. This means the Internet of Things needs to evolve in a trustworthy manner that individuals can understand and be comfortable with. It also suggests that the Internet of Things needs to be resilient against active attacks from organised crime, terror organisations or state-sponsored aggressors.

Therefore, this project creates a Hub for research, development, and translation for the Internet of Things, focussing on privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security/safety: PETRAS, (also suggesting rock-solid foundations) for the Internet of Things. The Hub will be designed and run as a 'social and technological platform'. It will bring together UK academic institutions that are recognised international research leaders in this area, with users and partners from various industrial sectors, government agencies, and NGOs such as charities, to get a thorough understanding of these issues in terms of the potentially conflicting interests of private individuals, companies, and political institutions; and to become a world-leading centre for research, development, and innovation in this problem space.

Central to the Hub approach is the flexibility during the research programme to create projects that explore issues through impactful co-design with technical and social science experts and stakeholders, and to engage more widely with centres of excellence in the UK and overseas. Research themes will cut across all projects: Privacy and Trust; Safety and Security; Adoption and Acceptability; Standards, Governance, and Policy; and Harnessing Economic Value. Properly understanding the interaction of these themes is vital, and a great social, moral, and economic responsibility of the Hub in influencing tomorrow's Internet of Things. For example, a secure system that does not adequately respect privacy, or where there is the mere hint of such inadequacy, is unlikely to prove acceptable. Demonstrators, like wearable sensors in health care, will be used to explore and evaluate these research themes and their tension. New solutions are expected to come out of the majority of projects and demonstrators, many solutions will be generalisable to problems in other sectors, and all projects will produce valuable insights. A robust governance and management structure will ensure good management of the research portfolio, excellent user engagement and focussed coordination of impact from deliverables.

The Hub will further draw on the expertise, networks, and on-going projects of its members to create a cross-disciplinary language for sharing problems and solutions across research domains, industrial sectors, and government departments. This common language will enhance the outreach, development, and training activities of the Hub.

Planned Impact

Privacy, Ethics, Trust, Reliability, Acceptability, and Security in the Internet of Things, ("PETRAS"), concerns us all. Being able to understand, control, and exploit their interaction in this space will have huge societal, economic, and third sector impact - let us mention personalised healthcare, better transport experience, more effective energy and water supply, more robust facility and supply chain management, new economic mechanisms for data sharing, and trust relationships of particular interest to the third sector.

The Hub's strategic focus is on co-designing solutions in this socio-technological space that are acceptable to their users and that judiciously, if not optimally, trade off conflicting considerations such as security and cost-effectiveness. The Hub will create and provide an environment in which researchers, users, and partners from multiple sectors can bring together expertise, experiences and experimental environments to engage in such co-design. This approach has impact and effective value generation at its core: the Hub has already secured pledges of considerable funding from partners who provide this support for research with impactful outputs; also, the Hub's overall strategy, governance structure, and operational oversight are designed to nurture and evaluate impact and productivity -generating activities - as reflected, for example, in the criteria for internal project selection in the initial and future internal calls.

One large environment for impact creation will be The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Within it, the "Smart in the Park" initiative - led by UCL and partnered with The Mayor of London's Smart London Board - has provided full and open research access to the study of PETRAS aspects of the entire site infrastructure: from waste and water through to energy, lighting, smart homes, future retail, and the logistical complexity of 9.5 million annual visitors across the 257 acres site. The pathways from this research to impact are 6-monthly "Smart in the Park Events", and IoT Weekenders linked to the Future Cities Catapult and the Digital Economy Catapult to showcase research. Additionally, workshop space for PETRAS R&D will be provided to SMEs, think tanks, and innovation incubators within a planned long-term IoT showcase called "The Heart of the Park". All this will be enhanced by facilities that engage citizens with PETRAS and the Internet of Things, such as controlling park lighting via the Internet of Things. We will have similar impact activities for other demonstrators such as the Smart Streets in Lancaster, Wearable Devices in Healthcare in London, the Smart Campus in Surrey, and the Edinburgh Festival.

The Hub will have two full-time Impact Champions serving in key management roles of the Hub; they will ensure that our approach to impact will be agile to allow the Hub to learn from seed projects, and will be inclusive to support an innovative environment in which also disruptive research and development can flourish. Through its linked, nationwide network of experimental environments, exhibition spaces and showcases the Hub will foster impact generation through co-innovation such that outputs have global reach and will help to secure the UK as a world-leader in PETRAS research in the Internet of Things.

PETRAS aspects of the Internet of Things are clearly visible to the general public, policymakers, and decision makers. Therefore, the Hub will maintain and lead a dialogue with those groups and others regarding the importance of PETRAS aspects in our future lives. This is aimed to be high profile, aided by a professional media campaign engaging with the full spectrum of today's media. The Hub will also tap into existing outreach channels such as a Hub website, UK Museums, Academies and Professional Societies. The aim is for the Hub to become an authoritative global voice of PETRAS/IoT aspects, and to create brand value for its long-term, sustainable and impactful future

Title BitBarista: Autonomous Bitcoin Coffee Machine 
Description BitBarista is a technical probe designed and built to explore perceptions of value transactions with a new Internet of Things device. It's comprised of a hacked Delonghi coffee machine, enhanced with a Raspberry Pi which reads signals from the coffee machines sensors, controls its functions, and connects it to the Internet. BitBarista is also equipped with its own Bitcoin account. It serves coffee in exchange for a Bitcoin contribution towards its next coffee supply. The coffee beans used by the machine will have been selected collectively by previous customers. The interaction begins with the machine displaying data on the state of coffee-producing countries looking for information on climate, work conditions, political situation, infrastructure, price stability and demand, which the machine purportedly browses online. From this data the machine selects top-ranked options for coffee beans in 4 categories: best quality, lowest price, lowest environmental impact and highest social responsibility. It then offers users the opportunity to choose one of these options for its next supply, and customers pay for their coffee accordingly. After the purchase, a new screen situates the choice within the pool of choices previously made, all anonymised, displaying the supply most likely to be ordered next. The machine also presents some autonomous features: it can order coffee and reward customers for helping with its maintenance, e.g. by refilling coffee beans, filling its water tank, and cleaning out used coffee grounds. When Bitbarista detects that a maintenance task needs performing, it will request help from customers and offer either free coffee or a payment in Bitcoin in return. Bitbarista is fitted with a small camera, enabling it to read smart codes for Bitcoin transactions, so that it can make payments to customers' Bitcoin wallets.

Title Living Room of the Future 
Description The LRoTF platfrom was developed with PETRAS partners BBC R&D as part of the AHRC Objects of Immersion research project which explored how media broadcasters could utilise Object-Based Media (OBM) to deliver more immersive experiences to audiences in home environments. The LRoTF utilises OBM to dynamically customise radio and television content based on audiences' personal, contextual and derived data. OBM delivers personalised viewing experiences by breaking media into smaller parts (known as 'objects'), describing how they relate to each other semantically, and then reassembling them into many possible personalised programmes. In addition to the media-delivery aspects, the LRoTF explores data protection issues associated with OBM's use of data, by integrating with the privacy-enhancing Databox system. Further the LRofTF extends OBM by including off the shelf and bespoke Internet of Internet of Things objects as part of the media performance in order to co-produce, with an audience, a 'lived' experience of the future as a form of 'Experiential Design Fiction'. With the support of PETRAS a new experience was created and a version of the LRofTF installed at the V&A which was designed to highlight potential futures of IoT involving Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Edge Computing. Additionally the experience highlighted research from PETRAS HTIoT project relating to designing IoT products and services that foregroud IoT data flows and algorithms and the often transactional nature of personal data production in the home. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2018 
Impact Alongside highlighting the research of PETRAS to some of the 22,000 visitors who attended the design weekend at the V&A nearly 100 were able to experience the LRofTF installation directly and engaged in many interesting discussions around the potential adoption IoT products and in the Home.

Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This activity is aimed primarily at people with non-technical backgrounds who want to begin exploring the possibilities of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies to envisage the potential for social change and disruption, and the wealth of new scenarios and applications. People skilled with technology may also benefit from involvement in the activity, especially if they are new to Blockchain, as this is more about opening up ideas on value rather than a technological explanation. The inclusion of technical people in the activity can therefore enhance the overall experience of the group, by bringing this expertise into the conversation.

Title IoT Observatory 
Description The development of the IoT Observatory is key towards a core platform and a set of associated technologies in order to support the observation, analysis, and visualisation of interactions and activities in IoT ecosystems. Integration with existing IoT Metadata standards such as the HyperCat make the observatory a robust tool for inter-domain research analyses. Inspired by the Web Observatory platform the IoT Observatory provides infrastructure support for sharing of IoT datasets and analytical applications contributed by various academic and user-partners of the PETRAS for critical research and implementation analyses. The IoT Observatory platform orchestrates several components for data ingestion, integration, storage, and streaming to support data re-use and sharing critical for IoT application domains such as smart cities. To address the privacy concerns of the stakeholders in any IoT ecosystems the observatory platform provides legal and ethical frameworks along with technological support for authentication and authorization.

Title Use of secure identifier management system in the construction industry 
Description There is an important class of IoT applications in which they are applied to a given deployment of assets, by separating out the deployment face from the implementation of the IoT it is easier to provision different IoT applications on the same on slightly modify deployment. We are investigating a technology which involved secure identifier management systems to describe the deployment, the data produce and protocols for access. The resultant database that be utilize in the IoT implementation and subsequent operation. It is realize that one of the key barriers to the acceptability of IoT applications is the need to ensure security and privacy. Similar concerns will apply as to whether different IoT applications will be permitted to use the same deployment of assets. We are investigating a generic approach to resolving this problem by the use of a secure identifier management system, We will use an existing open source system called Handle. This is nearly to allow rapid progress in tackling the problem. Handle seems to provide the sort of security, distribution and large scale capability to meet most of our requirements.At in an early stage we will explore to what extend the facilities such as security, maintenance and extension in the IoT domain. While both of problem and the approach are generic, it is important to applied them in an specific application domain which is both important and tractable. One such domain is that of the building information model (BIM) which has been mandated by the UK government for our future procurement from central fundings. A current level 2 of that standard foul of the needs of IoT and security. We are making contributions to the migration of that technology towards BIM Level 3, which is targeted to solved this problems completely. One of the main technologies to represent building models is IFC (Industry Foundation Classes). The present state,named IFC4 can help automate building design and construction, but it not rich enough to include IoT and security. To achieve our goal, our work is based in two different contributions:IFC+ and the use of Handle System as support for digital objects. The extension of IFC4 have to had detail descriptions of the attributes required for networks, security and data description. Handle System is a Secure Identifier Management System open available resolve, store and manage system which is globally accessible and widely used in other domain areas. It already contains hundreds of millions of entities in large number of servers. It provides a complete infrastructure for the prevision of types of encryption techniques to ensure the authentication and protection of the digital objects. In addition, the use of Handle permits access control of what entities can perform operations on the deployment database we show in some sample instances how to transform the file based IFC into the sort of database suitable for secure operations with Handle. It is this form of database which is then used for secure IoT applications. Because data and procedures can be incorporated into the Handle system database and in its integrated fashion, this technology can be used also to describe how the data is transmitted and can be accessed. This goes considerably beyond the current achievements of BIM Level 2. The use of both technologies, IFC+ and Handle System, allow to deploy IoT scenarios (Smart buildings) ready to be used by multi stakeholder IoT applications, assuring the privacy and security aspects. This specific Handle implementation includes a number of facilities to improve performances and resilience, we will investigate to what extend this relevant in this application domain.

Description Case study with Cisco USA 
Organisation CISCO Systems
Country United States 
Sector Private 
PI Contribution Conducted case study interviews and workshops with 4 major IoT cyber risk centres in Cisco USA. The case study research reported here had two objectives. The first objective was to present an up-to-date overview of existing and emerging IoT advancements in the field of Industry 4.0 (I4.0). Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Including cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing. The second objective was to capture the best practices regarding cyber security in industry, and to provoke a debate among practitioners and academics by offering a new theoretical model for assessing the cyber risk from IoT and I4.0.
Collaborator Contribution Cisco provided expertise, intellectual input, including access to data, equipment and facilities in the Cisco data centre in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. We reported the results of a qualitative case study with Cisco that correlates academic literature with five I4.0 cyber trends, seven cyber risk frameworks and two cyber risk models. We applied the grounded theory approach.

Description Church of England 
Organisation Church of England
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution CEDE has created a digital installation including a Font of Solace and Digital Prayer candles for the Parish Church of St Peter de Beauvoir in Hackney. Anonymous prayers submitted by members of the congregation are projected onto the floor of the church to promote empathy within the church community. Focus groups held with community groups within the parish demonstrated a very positive response to the installation and consequently we have recently partnered with a second church (The Church of St Michael and All Angels) in Cumbria to allow the trial of remote digital empathy between an urban and a rural parish. This second church was selected for this work as, aside from the significant distance between the two locations (approx. 370km), there is a significant contrast between the typically younger and relatively static community at St Peter's, and the typically older community of St Michael's which is extended in the summer months by many tourists to the Lake District who visit the church. Of particular interest will be the extent to which it is possible to develop a 'community spirit' between the two churches, the extent to which the two communities are able to feel empathetic towards the other, and the potential for the development of pro-social and pro-community behaviours between the two communities.
Collaborator Contribution The partners provided full access to the church and the local community, allowing a research in the wild approach and direct participation with often hard to reach groups (such as the over 60 Afro Caribbean Group).

PI Contribution Outputs from the Health-I project will further inform Policy frameworks for the use of web/mobile applications used in crowd-sourcing data. This collaboration has provided the DietLens team with the opportunity to capture dietary data outside the current Singapore themed food in the apps database.
Collaborator Contribution The DietLens mobile application allows users to simply take a photo of the food and the app will be able to recognise and identify it through image recognition technology. Nutritional information such as carbohydrate, protein and fat content of the identified food is then provided with an option to adjust for serving sizes, ingredients and preparation methods based on that specific meal. This information is automatically recorded and logged in food diary for an easy way to track dietary consumption that can be shared with clinicians. This collaboration enabled the Health-I project to undertake research to assess if people would be willing to use DietLens (a mobile app for crowdsourcing data), how they might use it, and their thoughts regarding data privacy of DietLens. To this end a survey of 10 questions was conducted and distributed to the University of Southampton's students to establish user feedback informing user perceptions of sharing crowd-sourced data and data privacy.
Impact This project explored privacy concerns when using IoT technology such as DietLens. Focusing on the application of IoT in healthcare, we used crowdsourcing to further understand contextual elements that influence the privacy concerns when sharing identifiable and sensitive data. These elements have been used to build a trust and privacy framework that supports sharing data in various context. We also developed a crowd-based privacy mechanism that builds context-aware privacy profiles. As we further analyse the outputs it is hoped we can share this feedback with the National University of Singapore to help advance the use of DietLens.

We operate in the fields of electronic warfare and cyber security, creating scalable solutions by investing in innovation and delivering excellence. Working in partnership with defence and civil organisations, we respond to their requirements, delivering precisely the right product at the right time, helping to counter evolving and emerging threats worldwide. The research to be conducted in the Central Hub for Advanced Research in IoT (CHARIoT) supports work currently being conducted as part of the innovation programme within L-3 TRL. This work aligns with our strategic model, supporting our entry into the marketplace as a supplier of innovative and trusted solutions for loT Cyber Security and Secure Cloud Infrastructure. L-3 TRL are a critical enabler for the adoption of IoT security and greatly wish to support the CHARIoT in order to meet the challenges of: (i) Implementing safe and secure applications on resource-constrained lightweight loT devices, including compromise detection and the application of appropriate compromise responses, (ii) Securing the requisite enterprise management services hosted by cloud providers, L-3 TRL has a history of investing in strategic collaborations with major security vendors and with world leading Universities. We develop market leading products and research in the field of cyber security and high grade/high bandwidth cryptographic solutions. Our technical ability and market reputation underpins the objectives of this proposal for a Central Hub for Advanced Research in IoT. We are currently funding research into mobile cyber security at Warwick University with a final value expected to be circa £100,000. The proposed research collaboration with the CHARIoT consortium will work alongside our in-house teams to support and extend our loT and cloud security service investigations. As part of the proposed collaboration with the CHARIoT consortium, L-3 TRL offers staff time for consultancy, guest lecturing and research collaboration from our leading area and product experts including: · Paul Yates, Security Consultant who is a subject matter expert in the area of cloud security · James Pyke, Assistant Chief Engineer for Cyber Products · Steve Mason, Chief Technical Officer, who leads our cyber security innovation research · A further one Engineer who will support the activities in this work TRL Technology As part of this support, we expect to be contributing advice through regular bilateral meetings with CHARIoT leaders/investigators. We estimate the total value of this in-kind contribution to be approximately £90,000 in addition to the currently committed value of £100,000. L-3 TRL expects the results of this research to augment their own defence and commercially positioned work, contributing to the essential analysis required in the fields of IoT and Cloud Security in order to support the projected speed of growth, and adoption of this technology. Whilst L-3 TRL are still at the very early stages of our own research, I am confident that this proposed partnership would benefit both parties as well as producing significant ground breaking work in this essential field.

Collaborator Contribution Dear Professor Watson Re: (proposed) Cybersecurity of the Internet of Things Hub I am pleased to confirm that Qonex, the consulting arm of Nexor, would be very happy to support your proposal to the above EPSRC funding call. Nexor provides trustworthy solutions that enable people and enterprises to use technology more productively and securely. We work in industrial sectors as well as national infrastructure, government and defence organisations where the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information systems is critical. In 2015 we set up Qonex to specifically focus applying Nexor's core expertise in providing trustworthy solutions to the emerging Internet of Things. Our focus is to enable organisations deploying the Internet of Things, understand the cyber security aspects of technology innovation, and to manage the associated risks. As this Internet of Things market evolves, we welcome collaborating more closely with the research hub to maintain our innovative edge by gaining a much better understanding of these areas as they develop. As an SME we cannot cover all the territory ourselves, and an association with research activities such as this provide us with valuable insight into where to prioritise our efforts. We anticipate our level of support to include attendance and contribution in workshops, sandpits and seminars as part of information sharing. We estimate our contribution in kind is to a commercial value of £18,000 over the three year period. We would also anticipate working with the university in funded R&D projects to solve specific challenges as they arise. Yours sincerely Colin Robbins Managing Consultant

Collaborator Contribution 27 August 2015 Dear Sirs CYBERSECURITY AND THE INTERNET OF THINGS HUB We are writing to express our support for the cyber security and the internet of things hub. About Pinsent Masons Pinsent Masons is one of the largest law firms in the UK. We field more than 350 partners and 1500 lawyers with our largest presence in the UK but spread across 20 offices on 3 continents. We advise clients in the manufacturing sector and have an extensive understanding of these businesses and the industries within which they operate. Our work covers the full range of activities including matters pertinent for present purposes such as data protection, IP, product liability, connectivity, information technology etc. We would propose to support the consortium project from the UK. The importance of the internet of things The internet of things, the ability of machines to communicate with each other, has profound implications for almost all business sectors including manufacturing. It potentially disrupts traditional business models and supply chains; brings new risks as well as opportunities; and raises a range of legal complexities. These include: how to manage restructuring in response to the disruption to business models; how to protect IP; cyber security; data protection and getting the right contracts in place for new risks, liabilities and relationships. The internet of things enables manufacturers to gain more data about their operations, customers and markets. This then allows them to make efficiencies through more sophisticated distribution, better supply chains and improved operational effectiveness. These improvements are important to success in a highly competitive world and need to be embraced and managed through effective IT and data management. With consideration for our own objectives and interest we are very much interested in working with you supporting your research hub as it directly aligns with the issues our clients are facing. There is huge value in bringing together the proposed consortium in one structure to consider these issues. We have a long standing relationship with Warwick and have supported a number of research collaborations and joint seminars and initiatives. Pinsent Masons Proposed Support to the Project As well as supporting the project in concept, Pinsent Masons is keen to participate in a practical sense particular in relation to consideration of the data and security issues that may arise. Recognising cyber security as a pressing management issue we have invested already in investigating cyber security with our clients through surveys and assisting clients with cyber readiness and would be keen to bring these 'earnings to the hub. We would envisage our support would include:- - attending any 'advisory group' or workshop sessions to input in respect of early consideration of legal implications; - inputting into papers addressing legal and policy issues relevant to the project. Based on the attendance at relevant meetings and the preparation of specific research and discussion papers we would be prepared to contribute senior lawyer time of up to 250 hours over three years at a notional value of up to £90,000. Yours faithfully Pinsent Masons LLP

The majority of staff are software engineers and mathematicians with expertise in the field of computer security and cryptography. Our head office is located in Shoreditch, London with other offices in Palo Alto, California as well as Manhattan and Binghamton, New York. Our commitment to high calibre research is evidenced by the relationships we have formed with State University of New York (SUNY) and the University of Warwick. An annual security hackathon has been created with the Cyber Security Group at the University of Warwick with the inaugural hackathon held in June of 2015; the winning project was focused on preserving security in IoT. The number of recent high-profile cybersecurity breaches has made securing the Internet of Things a major global priority. Callsign is investing heavily into the R&D of capabilities to help businesses achieve the appropriate levels of security in IoT. Of our R&D spend we will open up £150,000 to your research hub. Based upon this R&D it is anticipated that products will be developed that help businesses improve efficiency, reduce costs and enable improved management of security risks. Ultimately this will have a substantial positive impact on UK Plc. In addition to the direct opportunities and generation of economic wealth, the indirect benefits of the programme are expected to help position the UK as the centre of next generation cybersecurity capability. Yours Sincerely, Zia Hayat President & Chief Executive Officer Callsign Inc.

Collaborator Contribution Dear Professor Maple Re: TRL Statement of support for the Centre for Internet of Things TRL, the UK's Transport Research Laboratory, is an internationally recognised centre of excellence providing world-class research, consultancy and product testing, covering all aspects of transport. TRL was established in 1933 and since that time has continually made significant and lasting contributions to the development of safe, efficient and effective transport systems in the UK and beyond. We currently employ around 375 staff, most of whom are technical specialists in their field, with experts in engineering, statistics, software, psychology and human factors. TRL has access to a range of dedicated facilities including modelling & simulation software, advanced driving simulators, crash test rigs and test tracks. Our head office is in Crowthorne, Berkshire and the company has an annual turnover in excess of £30m. Satellite offices operate in Scotland, Wales, Dubai and Qatar. TRL operates the TRL Academy, an internal body with responsibility for maintaining the academic and research strengths upon which the organisation is founded. The Academy also manages our ongoing engagement with a range of universities and research organisations from the UK and beyond. We are well aware of the strong capabilities of the core university partners and have a number of research connections. We are, for example, working with Warwick on a "Towards autonomy - Smart and connected control" EPSRC project so are very pleased to be supporting this impressive initiative. TRL's business focuses on the generation and application of knowledge in the transport domain. We anticipate that IoT will be a major driver for innovation and development in transport over the next 10 years and will have a huge impact on the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of transport systems of all kinds. It is therefore vital that we understand these developments so that we remain relevant to our markets and customers and are better placed to generate and apply new knowledge in the area. We anticipate that IoT will impact particularly on connected and automated vehicles and on smart cities/smart infrastructure, all of which are important areas of work for us but also areas where the threat of cyber-crime is increasingly high-profile. We also need to understand how these aspects will be handled and will affect our clients and our work. Project Partner Letter of Support TFL Letter We intend to engage with and contribute to the Research Hub in a number of ways. Firstly, we would seek to participate as members of the External Advisory Group to help provide direction and governance to the programme. Secondly, we would help to develop the scope for projects undertaken within the Centre's programme based on our knowledge of the domain and future research requirements; this will include participation in workshops, "sandpits" and the like. Thirdly, depending on the scope of the research, we may be able to supply research data or access to specific facilities or equipment. Finally, we would hope to find suitable projects in which we can collaborate (e.g. by contribution of staff effort, secondment of staff to the centre, hosting of centre staff at TRL and co-supervising PhD students). It is difficult to define the precise financial value of our proposed in-kind support. For budgetary estimation purposes, we suggest maximum values for the four items described over a three year period as follows: 1. Participation in External Advisory Group activities £10k 2. Project scoping and advice £10k 3. Access to data and facilities £30k 4. Project collaboration £60k In conclusion, we are very pleased to be supporting this impressive initiative directed by Professor Jeremy Watson of UCL. The Centre for the Internet of Things can develop as a Research Hub of activity in this priority area for the UK and TRL can play an active role in supporting its development and operation. We highly commend this proposal and look forward to joining a first class team. Yours sincerely Professor Nick Reed Director, TRL Academy

Organisation University of Oxford
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution The concept of "social machines" is increasingly being used to characterize and describe various socio-cognitive spaces on the Web. Social machines imitate real-life processes and activities including human communication, opinion formation, interactions, and knowledge creation. Social machines continuously emerge and fade on the Web. The relationship between humans and machines has become further complicated by the scale of adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices. Scale, automation, continuous sensing, and actuation capabilities of these devices has added a third dimension to the relationship between humans and machines. As a result, new concerns of privacy and security are emerging. The divergent nature of these new socio-technical systems which we call Cyber Physical Social Machines (CPSMs) makes the problem non-trivial both at a systemic and conceptual level. In this study, we attempt to describe different exemplars of Cyber Physical Social Machines enabled and created by IoT devices. We describe the as-sociated challenges of security and privacy threats and emphasize the need for further studies in the proposed area of Cyber Physical Social Machines.

Title Spectroscopy for blood perfusion monitoring 
Description This medical device has been designed and developed by The Hamlyn Centre at Imperial College London. It measures different biological parameters like oxygen level in the skin. The ICL StO2 uses optical sensors to capture the small skin colour changes with blood flow. This technique is already been used in laboratories. The ICL StO2 is a much smaller and less costly alternative to current devices used in hospitals. It was developed to meet the needs of both patients and the clinical team for continuous follow up of tissue health. For reconstructive surgery, the ICL StO2 could help assessing whether or not additional surgery is needed according to the oxygen level measured on the targeted tissue. Other applications include continuous blood perfusion or blood flow monitoring (diabetes for example).

Title Porter Proxy for securly exposing database interfaces on the Web 
Description With a large number of datasets now available through the Web, data-sharing ecosystems such as the IoT Observatory have emerged. The IoT Observatory provides an active decentralised ecosystem for datasets and applications based on a number IoT Observatory sites, each of which can run in a different administrative domain. On a IoT Observatory, users can publish and securely access datasets across domains via a harmonised API and reverse proxies for access control. However, that API provides an interface that is different from the underlying databases', and consequently, existing applications built on top of those database interfaces require major modification to work with the Web Observatory ecosystem. We propose a lightweight architecture called Porter Proxy to address these issues. Porter Proxy exposes the same interfaces as databases as requested by the users while enforcing access control.

Geographic Reach Local
Primary Audience Industry/Business
Results and Impact This workshop will introduce new developments such as blockchain and smart contracting technologies to participants in a tangible and experiential way. The aim is to foster and support creative explorations of potential future visions of value exchange in an increasingly 'smart city'.

After an initial introduction, the workshop will comprise of a hands-on exploration of GeoCoin and a creative smart contracting activity. GeoCoin is a web app developed by the Design Informatics Team to explore digital currencies and value in the city. Based on the smart contracting platform Ethereum and in association with your phone's GPS data, it will challenge your understanding of data sharing, value exchange, and economic transactions in the city in an experiential way. We will then further dive into the understanding and use of smart contracts through an 'If This Then What' design exercise to envision and imagine new narratives and potential applications.

Overall, this workshop aims to foster discussion and understanding of potential issues, concerns and opportunities arising from these new technological developments for society, business and people alike. No prior knowledge of the technologies is required to join the workshop, nor is it necesary to own a smartphone. However, bringing a smartphone along will allow you to get the most out of the experience.

Both workshops are part of the After Money Symposium which heralds the end of Design Informatics' research project After Money in collaboration with the Royal Bank of Scotland and the New Economics Foundation, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The event is hosted by New Media Scotland as part of their 48 hours programme.

Primary Audience Schools
Results and Impact The meeting focused on key problems posed by the development of Machine Learning. Machine Learning promise radical change in sectors such as medicine, education, elderly care, transport and manufacturing. Like previous revolutions-printing, electricity, the combustion engine, transistors, computers and the internet-AI and Machine Learning will augment and disrupt the world of work. They will turbocharge some jobs and replace others. They will also create new industries that call for workers with skills that do not yet exist. Policymakers must start thinking now about how to realise the potential for AI and Machine Learning to increase economic productivity and to improve the lives of millions-especially people in the developing world. What should they do to encourage the adoption of these technologies? And can they legitimately do so without also responding to their potential negative impact? The downside for some-who may lose their livelihood. And the dark side-that AI and Machine Learning could enable discrimination or economic exclusion?

Results and Impact In a time when data is available to be used ever more creatively, our next BIMA Roundtable event will explore the biggest challenges and opportunities facing agencies working within this space.



As usual, the session will be opened with insights and observations from those best placed within the sector - CreateFuture's Strategy Director, Nathan Fulwood, alongside Creative Informatics Programme Director, Chris Speed. Their provocations will lead an open discussion, held under Chatham House rules.


Top levels ideas to be explored will include:


- How can we best make use of data within the creative process?
- What is the role of data in supporting the "creative spark"? Does it empower or impede creativity?
- How can big data and AI further support creative ideas and advance them to the next, previously unimagined level?
- Where is the line between creepy and cool?



Who should attend?


This event is for BIMA members and of particular interest to technical directors, those working on creative digital projects and those within tech start-ups. If you are not a BIMA member and would like to attend please contact rachelarthur@bima.co.uk.

Results and Impact Work by Design Informatics is showcased at the Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival, 4-28 August 2016.
The Design Informatics exhibition, Living with Data, is displayed in a Pavilion produced by Biomorphis architects. It features a range of products and experiences which look to the future:
In this demo we introduce Bitbarista, a coffee machine that exemplifies a new approach to data access and usage for the design of IoT devices. Bitbarista is connected to the Internet and attempts to communicate complex data processes, gathering consistent information on the state of coffee producing countries. It reveals the social, environmental, qualitative and economic aspects of coffee supply chains affecting end-prices, of which consumers are often unaware. Bitbarista allows people to choose a source of future coffee beans for the machine, and situates their choices within the pool of decisions previously made. In doing so, it places customers within the complexity of factors involved in coffee production, distribution and purchase. The aim is to expose this complexity in order to re-engage users in the market forces that influence and are driven by their choices, providing a positive experience of data display, usage and sharing.
