Research project


Project overview

The PETRAS 2 (privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security) IoT Centre of National Excellence will provide a national capability to enable the UK to become a world-leader in IoT security and associated systems security. Its research focus will be on the opportunities and threats that arise when edge computing is deployed more widely in the economy and society: when Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies move from being centralised systems to being run at the periphery of the internet and local IoT networks.
