Prof. Liotta and his team explore network and data science in the context of complex communications and smart sensing, particularly Data Mining and the Internet of Things. He studies new network concepts that will allow us to tackle the IoT data deluge as a distributed data-mining problem, bringing future internet research efforts alongside data science. His group has pioneered the concept of learning networks, which has the potential to reshape the networks of the future. His work on smart networks has been featured in IEEE Spectrum (The cognitive Net is coming, 2013) and has recently reached an important milestone with the demonstration of miniature machine learning processes within sensors having as little as 10Kbytes of memory. In 2015 he received the valorization award by the Eindhoven University of Technology.
