Digital Well-Being in the Present Tech-Saturated World
With the advent of information technology (IT), the Internet has revolutionized many aspects of contemporary society. As a result, a myriad of everyday activities have gone online, including work, entertainment, social interactions, teaching and learning, and even shopping. While IT advancement and digitization have brought considerable convenience to and improved efficiency in our daily lives, new emerging societal problems and inequalities have inevitably surfaced. When going online, Internet users are constantly exposed to a plethora of online problems and risks, such as gaming disorder, social media addiction, cyberbullying, cybercrimes, and Internet security threats. All these prevalent, emergent problems have posed massive threats to the digital well-being and quality of (real) life for many Internet users all over the world. The present keynote speech seeks to advance the understanding of both sides of the debate by espousing a balanced perspective, critically evaluating various burning issues regarding the pros and cons of Internet use and whether such use can do more harm than good to people’s mental health.

Improving the Quality of Service in IOT by Software-Defined Networking
Topic: Improving the Quality of Service in IOT by Software-Defined Networking
This talk deals with one of the most important challenges in the Internet of Things (IoT) applications – ensuring a high level of Quality of Service (QoS) for the users. The variety of IoT applications makes use of the newest achievements in modern computer science including 5G networks, Artificial Intelligence (AI), distributed and Cloud computing, etc. We describe our recent research on the methods and tools for developing modern IoT applications with a guaranteed level of QoS. Our special focus is on using the emerging technology of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) for challenging classes of IoT applications including online games, alarm systems, etc. We repost experimental results that confirm the advantages of our approach compared to the state of the art.
