The IEEE SA Foundational Technologies Practice has been established to help standardize seamless and ubiquitous connectivity across all applications of connected technologies in a trust-worthy and enabling manner. Though the development of a global community of interested volunteer stakeholders, the Foundational Technologies practice can help to address core issues of Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Security and Safety (TIPPSS) through both foundational level horizontal standards and domain specific standards.
Four Foundational Technology Trends to Watch in 2023
Increased Connectivity Capabilities Lead to Growing Investment in and Adoption of AI and AI Data Governance, Robotics Automation, Edge Computing, and Metaverse
IEEE Metaverse Congress
Cybersecurity in Agile Cloud Computing
Raising awareness of the security risks, developing best practices and guidelines, and proposing standards and certificates regarding secured cloud remote access.
Defining standards to help facilitate the deployment of micro-mechanical universal switches (MMUS) across numerous end markets including naming conventions and terminology, testing methods, reliability definitions, specifications definitions, and architectures.
Needs Assessment for Non-Fungible Token (NFT) Standards
Developing education material and guidance/best practices for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to enable the proliferation and adoption of NFTs.
Practice Lead Srikanth Chandrasekaran provides a brief overview of the Foundational Technologies Practice and the initiatives for 2021.
Industrial IOT & Smart Manufacturing
Driving Smart Manufacturing through the development of IoT frameworks and technologies for connected, integrated systems while addressing critical issues regarding data security, privacy, identity and trust.
Identifying new technologies for Smart Home – from devices, phones, wearables and embedded sensors while connecting the unconnected and enabling new markets while focusing on data ownership/agency, security, safety and privacy as adoption increases in the consumer space.
Infrastructure for Emerging Applications
Emerging technologies such as Quantum Computing, AR/VR, Blockchain and next generation connectivity protocols will drive future applications and enable new markets and as these technologies evolve, considerations on energy efficiency and sustainability also become very important.
