Data Mining for IoT (Data Reduction): Online Joint Course Tel-U & UTHM

Data Mining for IoT (Data Reduction): Online Joint Course Tel-U & UTHM. During the new normal phase, almost all educational activities still remain online. However, online courses allow us to study anywhere at any time, no longer having to come to class as conventionally before.

As of today, on Sunday morning (12/07), Telkom University in collaboration with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) continues to hold Online Combined Courses for students from Telkom University and UTHM, especially for engineering students. The topic for today’s Online Joint Course is “Data Mining for the Internet of Thing (IoT)-Data Reduction” presented by Dr. Nayef Abdulwahab Muhammed Alduais, a UTHM lecturer.

The Online Joint Course between Telkom University and UTHM was guided well by the Manager of International Office of Telkom University, Ms. Indah Fajarwati. A number of students were participated enthusiastically during class as shown in open discussion sessions. They were actively involved in the question and answer session. In addition, because class time is limited while students were still enthusiastic about the topic, further questions were forwarded to Dr. Nayef email.

In today’s class, Dr. Nayef covered three major parts of the topic, including definition of IoT, data reduction, and IoT challenges. According to Dr. Nayef explanation, cited in IEEE Internet of Things Journal, an IoT system is a network of networks where, typically, a massive number of objects, things, sensors, or devices are connected through communications and information infrastructure to provide value-added services via intelligent data processing and management for different application (e.g. smart cities, smart health, smart grid, smart home, smart transportation, and smart shopping. Yes, the “thing” here can be anything: device, smart object, and nodes.

However, in creating IoT communications, there are several things must be considered. The IoT communication should be:

  1. Low cost
  2. Low power
  3. Long battery duration
  4. High number of connections
  5. Long range
  6. Low processing capacity
  7. Low storage capacity
  8. Small size devices
  9. Simple network architecture and protocols

In other words, the engineers really have a challenging job. They must consider all of these elements to design great products so that clients will also be satisfied. Hopefully this session will be a new insight for the students that can be useful in their future. See you on the next Online Joint Courses.(IO)***
