WSIS Forum 2015 | 25-29 May 2015


Thomas LaengerĀ from University of LausanneĀ presented PRISMACLOUD Project during the "Building Trust-The Technical Challenges" session in WSIS Forum 2015!

Future networks will need to support a huge volume of ICT applications and a very broad spectrum of services. The next generation of wireless communication will see application in areas spanning from voice and video to industrial robotics, automated driving, remote medical surgery, virtual reality and much more. Billions of networked devices, things and objects will enable systems to communicate and learn from one another, creating intelligent ecosystems that adapt their behaviour autonomously in the interests of efficiency.

The question we must ask is whether we can trust ICT systems with this degree of intelligence. Can we trust that our children will be safe on the connected, autonomous bus to school? Can we trust in the security of critical infrastructure such as transport, energy and water networks?

This increasing sophistication of ICTs and unprecedented level of ICT ubiquity will demand significant transformations in network infrastructure. We are on course for a world in which nearly every aspect of economic and social activity will depend on ICTs, making it essential that we build ICT infrastructure deserving of our trust.

The session will analyze the technical challenges facing the development of trusted information infrastructure.
