2014 Intel-NTU Summer Research Practicum/Internship

Intel-NTU Connected Context Computing Center

As the Internet, in due course, developed, more and more computing devices
became connected, in particular mobile devices. The Internet of Things
(IoT) is emerging and well underway, and the majority of internet traffic
will be dominated by things rather than by computers built to fit the needs
of humans. Scientists, entrepreneurs and innovators are seeking to make the
world a better place by addressing real and demanding problems by
leveraging the Internet of Things.

Intel-NTU Connected Context Computing Center (http://ccc.ntu.edu.tw)
conducts cutting edge theoretic and applied research into the Internet of
Things in well-equipped facilities, National Taiwan University, with
top-notch professors and researchers in the heart of Taipei. Summer interns
will work with university faculty, scientists and researchers who guide
through the summer experience, and essentially receive considerable
direction from their supervisors. The internship is intended to motivate
students both domestic and overseas to explore machine-to-machine (M2M) and
IoT research, and the goal is to help students understand challenges and
opportunities in incorporating everything around us into the Internet of
Things which collectively improve our daily lives in all aspects.
