IoT (Internet of Things) is anticipated to significantly improve the qualities of our daily lives in the areas of home automation, healthcare, and transportation, among many others. This is achieved by massive and diverse wireless devices covering every corner of our living space. This talk introduces intelligent IoT networking. I will first discuss a novel design for harmonious coexistence of heterogeneous systems, which addresses the key issue of interference caused by incompatibility between various wireless technologies. The second part of the talk takes a step further in the aim to exploit the opportunity behind the heterogeneous networks consisting IoT. A new technique that establishes direct communication between incompatible devices is presented, enabling interoperation and collaboration between heterogeneities to provide services beyond the capability of each entity. The talk will conclude with a brief discussion on enhancing IoT infrastructure and its support for big data applications.
