Siemens’ Web of Things research group celebrated their new office location in downtown Berkeley. The research group, headed by Florian Michahelles, enjoys their new office in direct proximity to UC Berkeley Campus and collocation with the California Institute of Energy and Environment. The research team aims to enable data exchange between the devices to eventually make machines smarter and collaborative. While embedded devices become more intelligent by talking, healthcare providers, factory managers, building administrators and energy grid operators can access information to enhance their daily operations through data-driven analytics. The Siemens’ Web of Things research group has already started working with university research groups, students and interns, and startups. The research group looks forward to reaching out to other researchers, developers and opinion leaders curious about jointly exploring the capabilities of semantic technologies in the realm of web of things.
