NM&SC Session at the 2017 I/ITSEC
NM&SC conducted a 90-minute panel session on Thursday 30 November, 2017.
“Research Challenges in M&S in the Era of Big Data and the Internet of Things”
Big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are disruptive technologies having large impacts in society today. These impacts will only accelerate in the future. Modeling & simulation has not yet fully realized the potential and opportunities afforded by these emerging technologies. A panel of experts will discuss key research challenges and opportunities facing the modeling and simulation community in the era of big data and IoT. The panel will discuss important synergies and opportunities both in the development of new technologies as well as their exploitation in critical application areas such as smart cities, cybersecurity, and defense.
Each panelist provided a brief position statement, followed by Q&A.
