Workshop: AI for the Internet of Things
Workshop: AI for the Internet of Things
  • Speaker Ajit Joaker - Director at AI for Smart cities lab, UPM Madrid

imed at technology conversant executives and senior managers, this workshop explores AI and how it should be applied to IoT. The workshop takes a use case driven approach i.e. examples of how AI is being applied for IoT datasets and how processes and value chains could change as a result of doing so


What is Machine Learning, Deep Learning and AI

Understanding is IoT from a Data Science perspective

The end to end flow of data for an IoT application

The role of AI and Machine Learning in IoT

Digital Twin and AI

 Data Science for IoT – A black box approach 

  • Taking a black box approach 
  • What is the current state of the art of prediction?
  • Core elements: time series and image detection
  • Deep learning applied to IoT: LSTMs modelling
  • Time series analysis (mono and Multivariate)

 Technical Considerations for AI and IoT 

Feature engineering for IoT datasets

Edge computing

Complex event processing

Streaming analytics

 Problem solving for IoT 

Overview of the problem solving approach

An end to end problem solving approach for AI and IoT problems

Deployment considerations 

Data Ingestion requirements and a comparision of Data ingestion frameworks

Example: IoT Data ingestion with Kafka

Architecture concepts and tools (lambda, edge, nosql, streaming, data lake, etc.)

Deployment considerations: DevOps in DSIOT, microservices, containers, etc.

Training: Blockchain: Technology & Applications
Training: Blockchain: Technology & Applications
  • Warwick Chapman - CTO, Telecoms & Tech Academy


The invention of the blockchain is democratising trust by creating open, distributed databases where consensus is the product of the decentralised participation of nodes anywhere on the Internet.

This workshop takes a high-level look at the concept of a blockchain, explores in detail how a blockchain works to provide the trust at the heart of a digital ledger in the case of a digital currency, considers the introduction of smart contracts as an innovation on the blockchain and explores a diverse set of real-world scenarios where blockchain and smart contract adoption is being explored. Finally, the leading commercially applicable blockchain platforms and possible applications thereof are explored.


  • Attending this course will empower you to develop or be able to:
  • Effectively engage with the concept of a blockchain and the disruptive potential thereof
  • Consider the blockchain as a distributed ledger behind a digital currency like Bitcoin
  • Understand the role of cryptography in securing blockchain implementation
  • Effectively discuss and debate the blockchain and its disruptive potential in the context of your organisation and industry
  • Explore several real-world scenarios where blockchains, smart contracts or other technology derived from blockchains is being explored or has already been implemented
  • Consider the leading commercial blockchain solutions and be able to select and motivate for the platform most applicable to your industry and organisation
  • Consider the introduction of a blockchain project in your organisation to empower your teams to better explore the disruptive potential
