Future Networks and Services

Prof. Decina's talk will focus on future information services delivered through distributed computing and networking platforms. He will illustrate the Internet evolutions to enhance both knowledge and social connectivity (Semantic and Social Web), as well as, to spread out ubiquitous connectivity and pervasive applications (Internet of Things). Cloud Computing is the current metaphor to deliver Internet services, while information and communication technologies are instrumental in meeting the overall objectives of a sustainable world (Smart Grid). Embedded sensing, cognitive radio and autonomic self-organizing networks are key wireless technologies to provide future location and context-aware services and applications for mobile users.

ICT paradigm shift and the trend of communication technology

Fujitsu is setting forth the new ICT paradigm named "Human Centric System", and focusing on the realization of "Human Centric Intelligent Society". In this talk, I will start with the explanation of the concept with some typical service examples. To support the paradigm shift, networks keep playing the major role, and new communication technologies and devices need to be developed according to the change of requirements. Then I will touch upon the technology trends of networks. One of the key messages of the new paradigm is to make ICT into more dependable system. Faced to the huge earthquake and Tsunami disaster we experienced in Japan this time, my talk will include some aspects of new technologies which will help people in preparing and recovering form the possible natural disasters.
