Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

The Future Internet will integrate large-scale systems constructed from the composition of thousands of distributed services, while interacting directly with the physical world via sensors and actuators, which compose the Internet of Things.

Check out the scheduled Arts and Science soirées that will happen in São Paulo over the next months with a mix of entry-level technological presentations and artistic performances!
