The School of Computer Science is thrilled to announce that 2 projects have been funded through the PETRAS Opportunities fund. The funding supports “collaboration and activities to tackle issues concerning cybersecurity at the edge of the Internet”.

The Principal Investigators of the projects are Dr Alan Chamberlain, and Prof Derek McAuley, these innovative projects take a different perspective on issues relating to the Internet of Things and Cybersecurity.

Dr Chamberlain, (who is also an Honorary Fellow in the Department of Music) said “this shows that Nottingham is again at the forefront of thinking about issues relating to the use and design of emerging technologies. It’s important to understand new technologies in different contexts to fully appreciate and understand how people engage with them. Working with the University of Oxford and industry partners, such as the BBC will enable us to do some fantastic research in this area”.

Dr Chamberlain will be leading EXIoT project, working with Prof Dave De Roure (University of Oxford) and Ty Cerdd.
