Advancements in IoT and AI Integration: Insights from Kalmar’s IoT Lab Fredrik Ahlgren
In this seminar, Dr. Fredrik Ahlgren, Senior Lecturer at Linnaeus University, will outline the transformative journey of establishing the IoT Lab in Kalmar, showcasing its evolution from an initial concept to a thriving research hub. The presentation will highlight the lab’s innovative projects, such as connected beehives and the M/S Dessi connected ship initiative, alongside collaborative efforts with over 15 industry partners through pilot cases. Dr. Ahlgren will delve into the integration of AI for data analysis, including the use of ChatGPT for enhancing research outputs. The seminar will reference specific publications, such as the application of machine learning for fuel consumption prediction in maritime engineering and the use of reinforcement learning in IoT environments, underscoring the lab’s contribution to applied research in IoT and AI. Attendees will gain insights into the lab’s strategic approach to leveraging IoT and AI for addressing real-world challenges, highlighting the impact of these technologies on industry and education.

Data and sustainabilityJorge Zapico
Data can make sustainability issues visible and actionable: carbon emissions, biodiversity, energy, resource consumption, waste. These issues are complex, long term, systemic, and we have problems grasping them without support. Technology provides new ways to measure the current state, simulate future scenarios and options, and to get feedback about ongoing changes and interventions. Dr. Jorge Zapico, Senior Lecturer at Linnaeus University will present lesson learnt from developing prototypes and services for sustainability during the last 15 years, what he sees as the main contributions, risks and pitfalls, and which future innovation spaces lay ahead.
