Abstract

Rapidly developing digital technologies, together with social and business trends, are providing huge opportunities for innovation in product and service markets, and also in government processes. Technology developments drive socioeconomic and behavioural changes and vice versa, and the rate of change in these makes tracking and responding to high-speed developments a significant challenge in public and private sectors alike. Agile governance and policy-making for emerging technologies is likely to become a key theme in strategic thinking for the public and private sectors.
Particular trends that are challenging now, and will increasingly challenge society include developments in technologies on the outskirts of the internet. These include Artificial Intelligence, not just in the cloud but in Edge computing, and in Internet of Things devices and networks. Alongside and in conjunction with this ecosystem, is Distributed Ledger Technology. Together this ensemble of technologies will enable innovations that promote productivity, like peer-to-peer dynamic contracts and other decision processes, with or without human sight or intervention. However, the ensemble's autonomy, proliferation and use in critical applications, makes the potential for hacking and similar attacks very significant, with the likelihood of them growing to become an issue of strategic national importance.
To address this challenge, and to preserve the immense economic and productivity benefits that will come from the successful deployment and application of digital technologies 'at the edge', a focused initiative is needed. Ideally, this will use the UK's current platform of experience in the safe and secure application of the Internet of Things. The contributors to this platform include PETRAS partners, and several other centres of excellence around the UK.
It is therefore proposed to build an inclusive PETRAS 2 Research Centre with national strategic value, on the established and successful platform of the PETRAS Hub. This will inherit its governance and management models, which have demonstrated the ability to coordinate and convene collaboration across 11 universities and 110 industrial and government User Partners, but will importantly step up its mission and inclusivity through open research calls for new and existing academic partners. PETRAS 2 will maintain an agile and shared research agenda that views social and physical science challenges with equal measure, and covers a broad range of Technology Readiness Levels, particularly those close to market. It will operate as a virtual centre, providing a magnet for collaboration for user partners and a single expert voice for government. User partner engagement is likely to be strong following the successes of the current PETRAS programme, which has raised over £1m in cash contributions from partners during 2018.
The new PETRAS 2 'Secure Digital Technologies at the Edge' methodology will inherit the best of PETRAS, including open calls to the UK research community and a partnership-building fund that allows a responsive approach to opportunities that emerge from existing and new user and academic partnerships. PETRAS 2 will be driven by sectoral cybersecurity priorities while retaining a discovery research agenda to horizon-scan and develop understanding of new threats and opportunities. The scope of projects and the associated Innovate UK SDTaP demonstrators, spans early to late TRLs and aims to put knowledge into real user partner practice. Furthermore, the development of many early career researchers through PETRAS 2 research activities should lead to a step change in our national capability and capacity to address this highly dynamic area of socio-technical opportunity and risk.

Planned Impact

The overarching aim of the proposed PETRAS 2 Centre is to build the flexible national capacity for creating a comprehensive & systematic understanding of the opportunities and threats arising when edge computing nodes are deployed, migrating AI/ML technologies to the periphery of the internet and local IoT networks. To deliver this aim, the PETRAS 2 Centre will reach beyond academia and engage with the public, private and civil society sectors in the UK and internationally. The key impact objectives for the Centre will therefore include, but not be limited to, the following;

1. To provide strategic advice and policy insight, becoming the go-to resource on SDTaP issues for the public and private sector: PETRAS 2 will provide a nexus between the two communities, academic and user, matching a base of existing published work and research agendas that can be executed with PETRAS funding. Critically, this provide a coherent, expert, trusted view which decision-makers can rely upon to be responsive to their needs. Given there is a proliferation of organisations and initiatives dealing with the challenges and opportunities that data and AI present, both within the UK and internationally, the Centre will work closely with these existing organisations (for example, the Ada Lovelace Institute, Alan Turing Institute, the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, the Office for AI, the Information Commissioner's Office and the AI Council), to provide a unique, impactful contribution at the focal point of IoT, AI and Cyber security .

2. To functionally improve the capacity of government to rise to the challenge of the 'arms race' of ever more complex sociotechnical systems and threats: We will produce a cohort of post-doctoral experts with experience of cross-disciplinary working and challenge-oriented thinking. They will feed the growing need for cybersecurity expertise in government and industry. We recognise the need to draw from all areas of society and will encourage those with talent from outside academia to engage, and where relevant, embark on academic careers. In this way, we will ensure diversity is a key consideration in our pathways to impact activities.

3. To increase the early adoption of new methods and technologies by our industrial, service and government User Partners: We will achieve this through translating and evaluating many of our research outcomes to real environments. This process will be facilitated by the incorporation at governance-level of the Innovate UK SDTaP Demonstrator and Commercialisation programmes. This will also increase the confidence of our industrial, service and government User Partners, thereby promoting the early adoption of new methods and technologies.

Our key organisation design objective is to create an inclusive Centre that can attract and closely connect experts and organisations, together forming a strategic national research capability in the cybersecurity of devices and networks at the edge of the internet. We will deliver this objective by using innovative processes for the synthesis and communication of the research programme which will ensure that the unique benefit of the PETRAS socio-technical approach is translated effectively to industry, government and broader non-technical audiences. Each year, in addition to an IET partnered conference and project level activity, the Management Team will run at least four 'Centre level' events, designed to fully exploit the value of the collective insights and expertise of the Centre.

Organisations

 
Title BitBarista 
Description Bitbarista serves you coffee in exchange for a Bitcoin contribution towards its future coffee supply. The coffee beans used to make your coffee served will have been selected collectively by previous customers. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact Initial studies of BitBarista with 42 participants reveal challenges of designing for connected systems, particularly in terms of perceptions of data gathering and sharing, as well as assumptions generated by current models of consumption. A discussion is followed by a series of suggestions for increasing positive attitudes towards data use in interactive systems.

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. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2016 
Impact BitBarista has formed an integral part of a study on initial perceptions of data transactions with a new Internet of Things device. It has been used in a multitude of talks and presentations, to explain and demonstrate the potential of Bitcoin, and IoT devices. It is now part of a further study in which it will be situated in series of office spaces, to gather perceptions of longer term use.

However, all is not straightforward! Giving energy back when the grid has peaked can result in a negative karma. 
 
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.

Title Block Exchange 
Description Block Exchange is a fast-paced workshop activity that will open minds to the future possibilities of value exchange. Using Lego to simulate the Blockchain participants will experiment with trading as economic models shift from the basic acquisition of resources, through a fluctuating market and finally into peer-to-peer trading of value where anything goes! 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2015 
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.

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).

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.

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.

On behalf of Callsign, I would like to confirm full commitment and support for the establishment of a Research & Development (R&D) hub on privacy and trust in IoT. Callsign is a rapidly growing start up that is internationally recognised for its game-changing approach to digital identification. Formed in 2011, Callsign has received investment from major tech and professional services firms including Qualcomm, Deutsche Telekom and Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Since its inception Callsign has placed major emphasis on continual R&D in the area of computer security, this is reflected in numerous international patents that have been filed and granted. The company currently employs 38 staff, which is growing on a weekly basis. 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

Description Understanding Emergence of Cyber Physical Social Machines 
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.

Results and Impact Event Description
Secure by design - A Digital Catapult Forum on behalf of IoT UK and Cyber 101

Supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport via Digital Catapult's programmes IoT UK and Cyber 101, this one-day event will explore the opportunities and challenges of what it means to be secure by design. Together with representatives from government, industry leaders and academia, we will discuss the challenges of building secure products in a complex IoT supply chain and where responsibility and liability sit within this framework from product design through to retailer and consumer.
This event will host a collaborative workshop and forum for discussion with leading figures from across government, industry and research.

Who should attend?
This event is designed for manufacturers, retailers, startups, government and organisations involved in the internet of things

Why attend?
This is an opportunity to hear from a panel of experts in the field but also to provoke audience opinion and questions throughout the session. There will be the opportunity to network with experts from a range of industries.


Agenda

9.15am - Registration, Coffee & Networking

10am - Key note 1: Building pragmatic and realistic expectations for IoT security: the story behind the UK's Code of Practice for Consumer IoT Security
David Rogers. Founder of Copper Horse Solutions, visiting professor in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics at York St John University, Chair of the GSMA Device Security Group and Exec. Board member of the IoT SF. Author of the UK's Code of Practice for Security in Consumer IoT and services

10.30am - Panel 1: Secure By Design - guidelines, compliance and liability
Secure by Design is a hot topic in IoT consumer manufacturing and a number of organisations are engaged in defining frameworks and guidelines to support the adoption of 'best practice' in the industry. This panel will consider how companies ensure they are compliant with best practice, what 'good enough' looks like given the innumerable variances in function and category of IoT products and the subsequent 'grey-scale' of criticality versus responsibility. We will also look at considerations of liability within the supply-chain, from chip manufacturers to retailers.
Chair - Jamie Harrison, Head of Innovation Programmes, Digital Catapult.

12pm - Lunch

1pm - Keynote 2: Securing the IoT and Beyond
Delivered by Jeremy Watson, CBE FREng FIET FICE DPhil, Professor of Engineering Systems & Vice-Dean (Mission) University College of London

1.30pm - Panel 2: How speculative design and new design methods can plan for security and adoption requirements.
Chris Speed
Paul Coulton
Andy Hudson-Smith
The panel will discuss how speculative design, prototyping and in-field experiments can help designers and developers identify and better plan for security and adoption requirements. This panel will consider how we think about securing the future, how independent research and speculative design as a methodology enables us not only to prepare ourselves for the future but also to plan for the future that we want, and understand trade-off and potential consequences of emerging technology in the IOT arena.
Chair - Rchel Cooper OBE, Distinguished Professor - Design Management and Policy, Director - ImaginationLancaster, Chair - Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts

Results and Impact The aim of the meeting is to understand the threats of jamming to current and future vehicles and infrastructure. We will look to explore how resilient vehicles and infrastructure may be to jamming and to understand what is being done, or should be done, to combat jamming. Within this we can consider if there a role for central government. We will consider jamming technologies broadly but will touch upon GPS jamming, jamming of radar cameras and other similar technologies that could impinge the performance of vehicle or road sensors.

Results and Impact Description

The rise of the digital currency Bitcoin, along with its supporting technology Blockchain, offers a radical new model of peer-to-peer trading, which raises questions about our existing economic models, and threatens to undermine long accepted financial power structures. The world has changed. The push economy that has long dominated the way we consume products and services has been disrupted by a new pull economy, characterised by platforms such as Uber and Airbnb, where consumers take part in providing and shaping the services provided. This has precipitated an explosion of new products and thinking around decentralised trading of goods and services.

Design Informatics and Design In Action bring two sessions to Inverness on 5 Dec:

10:30-12:30 Lego BlockExchange - Interactive Workshop *attend in-person only

12:30 Light lunch

13:30-14:30 Seminar: Designing things with Spending Power *attend in-person, or watch online

*Please note the workshop in the morning cannot be live-streamed as the interactive nature of the activity requires participation.

Lego BlockExchange Workshop (10:30-12:30)

Explore the future of value beyond money in a dynamic workshop activity, run by you!

The Lego BlockExchange workshop is a toolkit is a for anyone interested in exploring this rapidly developing new territory. Block Exchange is a fast-paced workshop activity that will open minds to alternative means of value exchange. Using Lego to simulate the Blockchain, participants will experiment with different ways of trading, starting from the basic acquisition of resources, through a fluctuating market and finally exploring peer-to-peer trading of value where anything goes!

The session will be delivered by Professor Chris Speed, Chair of Design Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, and his team.


Designing things with spending power (13:30-14:30)

Design Informatics Seminar by Professor Chris Speed

What happens when we give physical things wallets containing digital currencies? How can this alter power relationships and shift social dynamics? Chris Speed will explore these questions by highlighting the use of smart contracts in design, from a coffee machine that lets you vote for your coffee bean and pays those who clean it, to a hairdryer that trades on the energy market to offer the best price for drying your hair. As objects are connected to the Internet, forming the 'Internet of Things', Chris asks what happens when technologies are given their own spending power, and what this implies for the human.

About Chris Speed

Results and Impact Description

Most businesses have heard of Bitcoin as a blockchain technology and don't appreciate it has wider applications. The aim of this event is to give the business community an understanding of what blockchain is and its potential uses. The event will give businesses a basic understanding of blockchain and then look at more advanced uses. There will be an opportunity for networking and Belfast Met staff and presenters will be around afterwards to discuss any potential ideas or to get a better understanding of your particular sector.

We are thrilled to have Matt Lucas, a member of IBMs Global Blockchain Engagement Team, with us to share his knowledge. Matt is an expert in his field and travels the world addressing seminars and helping clients understand and adopt blockchain technologies to solve business requirements in a range of industries such as finance, the public sector, manufacturing and retail.

Matt Lucas - IBM Global Blockchain Engagement Team

Blockchain is about more than cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. There are changes coming that will blow your mind. Will they threaten the existence of many traditional businesses and be the growth engine of others? How is it providing the foundation for exciting new generation business process applications? What are those applications? Which sectors could be the winners and which the losers? If you want to gain some insights as to who and what may be the Blockchain equivalent in 10 years of recent arrivals like Amazon and eBay with multi-billion £ valuations then is this an opportunity you can't miss.

Results and Impact Invited talk during EUROCITIES 2018 tour of research centres

Creative competitive cities - building our future together EUROCITIES 2018 Edinburgh on 28-30 November will take place at a critical time for Europe, against the backdrop of the UK's decision to leave the European Union, and a year ahead of the European elections. In a turbulent world of unprecedented change and uncertainty cities are even more vital for Europe's future, being the drivers of inclusive and sustainable growth, jobs and innovation.

At this decisive moment in Europe's history, EUROCITIES 2018 Edinburgh will bring together participants from across Europe, from different levels of governance and amongst citizens, to discuss our future focusing on two interconnected strands:
Citizenship and democracy

While national governments continue to debate and make decisions on future national and institutional ties, cities will continue to reach out and build key bilateral and multilateral connections on a European and global scale.

Ahead of the European Parliament elections in 2019, EUROCITIES 2018 Edinburgh will be an opportunity for cities from across Europe to reinforce our position that EU institutions and member states must work with us, to empower citizens to engage with and understand the importance of the European project for all.

Within the EUROCITIES 'Cities4Europe - Europe for citizens' campaign, we will be collecting, analysing and drawing up recommendations for active democratic citizens' participation in all levels of government, and which we will also take forward to the European Commission and the European Parliament in our mayors' summit 2019.

Edinburgh 2018 will provide us with the occasion to discuss and validate this evidence of cities' engagement with citizens.
Culture - a smart investment for our future

Cities need creativity, collaboration and international connections to unlock solutions to urban challenges and to enrich the quality of life of their citizens and secure their future inclusion and prosperity.

Creativity and social innovation can help stimulate new solutions to address the challenges cities face, such as unemployment, climate change, political alienation.

During EUROCITIES 2018 Edinburgh we will explore how culture can build stronger ties between communities, bringing people together to learn from each other, broaden horizons and build relationships, opening up new ways of communication and understanding.
