Title:A Framework for Hybrid Research Paradigm (HRP) and Sample Researches

Abstract: The objective of the talk is to present the hybrid research paradigm (HRP) as a re-emerging field of research.  HRP involves mixing two or more concepts with the hope that the new resulting research will be more innovation and practically oriented.  Normally, HRP is associated with hardware/software co-design and qualitative and quantitative methodologies of using case approach and statistical analysis.  The presentation, however, present an all-encompassing framework for HRP consisting of five layers: physical layer, conceptual layer, methodological layer, application layer, and tools layer.  After an introduction on some definitions of “Hybrid” “Research paradigm”, the talk explains each layer, stating examples to be linked and integrated in HRP for each layer.  The framework also emphasizes the cross-layer linked in research.  Cross-layer links would generate a more significant and stronger research.  Following the explanation of the framework’s layers, the presentation gives several research examples form the speaker own prior and future research. Cortical success factors in HRP include communication, a common frame of reference, and team management.  Google experiences on teams is highlighted.  Team leadership rotation is recommended based on topics/objectives and the phase of the HRP projects.

Title: Internet of Things: Enabling Cross-Domain Convergence and Innovation

Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is a facilitating technology that helps bridge legacy, present, and futuristic technologies towards achieving a universal, uniform, faster, and deeper technological penetration in the modern day society. Besides bridging technological divides, IoT has resulted in the development of innovative schemes, solutions, and even technologies, which fill-in the gaps arising as a result of the convergence of numerous technologies and devices into a unified platform. From a networking perspective, innovation and developments in hardware, and algorithmic schemes for addressing, device management, topology management, energy optimization, and forecasting in various cross-domain areas have resulted in the huge popularity of IoT-based systems. Domains such as healthcare, agriculture, home automation, transportation, logistics, surveillance, defence, traffic management, power distribution, and others are some of the biggest consumers of IoT and IoT-based services. As a result of the need for convergence of a wide variety of information towards a common goal, technologies such as Cloud Computing, Sensor Cloud, Big Data, Software Defined Radios and Networks, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Social Sensing, and Smartphone Computing have witnessed major developments in the recent few years. This talk will have special focus on showcasing some of the research works done by the Speaker on IoT at the SWAN Lab (http://cse.iitkgp.ac.in/~smisra/swan/) of IIT Kharagpur.
