Visible to the public Fundamental Research Challenges for IoT/CPS (a few from the many*)

The talk focuses on two major new challenges for the future Internet of Things (IOT) which will rely on CPS solutions. These challenges are the new types of systems of systems issues that arise and the problems due to enormous scaling in numbers and density of smart devices that will exist in the future.
