Abstract: Despite the proliferation of Internet-of-Things (IoT) platforms for building and deploying IoT applications in the cloud, there is still no easy way to integrate heterogeneous geographically and administratively dispersed sensors and IoT services in a semantically interoperable fashion. In this paper we provide an overview of the OpenIoT project, which has developed and provided a first-of-kind open source IoT platform enabling the semantic interoperability of IoT services in the cloud. At the heart of OpenIoT lies the W3C Semantic Sensor Networks (SSN) ontology, which provides a common standards-based model for representing physical and virtual sensors. OpenIoT includes also sensor middleware that eases the collection of data from virtually any sensor, while at the same time ensuring their proper semantic annotation. Furthermore, it offers a wide range of visual tools that enable the development and deployment of IoT applications with almost zero programming. Another key feature of OpenIoT is its ability to handle mobile sensors, thereby enabling the emerging wave of mobile crowd sensing applications. OpenIoT is currently supported by an active community of IoT researchers, while being extensively used for the development of IoT applications in areas where semantic interoperability is a major concern.

TL;DR: This paper explores divergent visions for the evolution of Internet of Things technology and business models, and the ecosystem that exists around them, and examines the role and reach of open source software in building and sustaining the IoT.
Abstract: This paper explores divergent visions for the evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) technology and business models, and the ecosystem that exists around them. In particular, it examines the role and reach of open source software (OSS) in building and sustaining the IoT, from infrastructure to applications and other value-added device content. Specifically, it explores how OSS can support competing and complementary architectures and meet looming IoT challenges, including security and privacy on this new digital frontier.

TL;DR: This work synthesize and highlight the most relevant work regarding ontology methodologies, engineering, best practices and tools that could be applied to Internet of Things (IoT).
Abstract: We discuss in this paper, semantic web methodologies, best practices and recommendations beyond the IERC Cluster Semantic Interoperability Best Practices and Recommendations (IERC AC4). The semantic web community designed best practices and methodologies which are unknown from the IoT community. In this paper, we synthesize and highlight the most relevant work regarding ontology methodologies, engineering, best practices and tools that could be applied to Internet of Things (IoT). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work aiming at bridging such methodologies to the IoT community and go beyond the IERC AC4 cluster. This research is being applied to three uses cases: (1) the M3 framework assisting IoT developers in designing interoperable ontology-based IoT applications, (2) the FIESTA-IoT EU project encouraging semantic interoperability within IoT, and (3) a collaborative publication of legacy ontologies.

TL;DR: In this paper, a decision tree based approach is proposed to enhance trust management by exploring the decision tree model in the area of IDS, which can be easily read and even resemble a human approach to decision making by splitting the choice into many small subchoices for IDS.
Abstract: Despite the growing popularity of machine learning models in the cyber-security applications (e.g., an intrusion detection system (IDS)), most of these models are perceived as a black-box. The eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) has become increasingly important to interpret the machine learning models to enhance trust management by allowing human experts to understand the underlying data evidence and causal reasoning. According to IDS, the critical role of trust management is to understand the impact of the malicious data to detect any intrusion in the system. The previous studies focused more on the accuracy of the various classification algorithms for trust in IDS. They do not often provide insights into their behavior and reasoning provided by the sophisticated algorithm. Therefore, in this paper, we have addressed XAI concept to enhance trust management by exploring the decision tree model in the area of IDS. We use simple decision tree algorithms that can be easily read and even resemble a human approach to decision-making by splitting the choice into many small subchoices for IDS. We experimented with this approach by extracting rules in a widely used KDD benchmark dataset. We also compared the accuracy of the decision tree approach with the other state-of-the-art algorithms.

TL;DR: In this paper, a sedimentological core and petrographic characterisation of samples from eleven boreholes from the Lower Carboniferous of Bowland Basin (Northwest England) is presented.
Abstract: Deposits of clastic carbonate-dominated (calciclastic) sedimentary slope systems in the rock record have been identified mostly as linearly-consistent carbonate apron deposits, even though most ancient clastic carbonate slope deposits fit the submarine fan systems better. Calciclastic submarine fans are consequently rarely described and are poorly understood. Subsequently, very little is known especially in mud-dominated calciclastic submarine fan systems. Presented in this study are a sedimentological core and petrographic characterisation of samples from eleven boreholes from the Lower Carboniferous of Bowland Basin (Northwest England) that reveals a >250 m thick calciturbidite complex deposited in a calciclastic submarine fan setting. Seven facies are recognised from core and thin section characterisation and are grouped into three carbonate turbidite sequences. They include: 1) Calciturbidites, comprising mostly of highto low-density, wavy-laminated bioclast-rich facies; 2) low-density densite mudstones which are characterised by planar laminated and unlaminated muddominated facies; and 3) Calcidebrites which are muddy or hyper-concentrated debrisflow deposits occurring as poorly-sorted, chaotic, mud-supported floatstones.

TL;DR: This survey paper proposes a novel taxonomy for IoT technologies, highlights some of the most important technologies, and profiles some applications that have the potential to make a striking difference in human life, especially for the differently abled and the elderly.
Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as a paradigm in which objects equipped with sensors, actuators, and processors communicate with each other to serve a meaningful purpose. In this paper, we survey state-of-the-art methods, protocols, and applications in this new emerging area. This survey paper proposes a novel taxonomy for IoT technologies, highlights some of the most important technologies, and profiles some applications that have the potential to make a striking difference in human life, especially for the differently abled and the elderly. As compared to similar survey papers in the area, this paper is far more comprehensive in its coverage and exhaustively covers most major technologies spanning from sensors to applications.
