When school meets neuroscience to educate attention in the digital age
The emergence of massive communication is not only a formidable opportunity but also a considerable challenge for the human brain : immediate access to a potentially infinite source of information and solicitations imposes a huge load on attention, a brain function that filters every second between behaviorally relevant and irrelevant information. In this talk, I will discuss a) the consequences of the widening gap between what we now ask our brain to do and its actual capacities constrained by millions of years of adaptation to environments considerably less dynamic and rich. and b) possible ways out of the so-called “attention crisis”, through the development of a real “education of attention” in schools.

Towards open IoT ecosystems: Ambition, Challenges & Opportunities
Authors: Sylvain Kubler (Université de Lorraine, CRAN)
The Internet of Things (IoT) has promised a future where everything gets connected. Unfortunately, building a single global ecosystem of Things that communicate with each other seamlessly is virtually impossible today. The reason is that the IoT is essentially a collection of isolated “Intranets of Things”, also referred to as “vertical silos”, which cannot easily and efficiently interact with each other. Smart cities are perhaps the most striking examples of this problem since they comprise a wide range of stakeholders and service providers who must work together, including urban planners, financial organisations, public and private service providers, telecommunication providers, industries, citizens, and so forth. Through his talk, Dr. Sylvain Kubler will (i) discuss business and technological implications as well as challenges of creating successful open innovation ecosystems, (ii) present the technological building blocks underlying an IoT ecosystem developed in the framework of the bIoTope EU project (Horizon 2020 programme), (iii) present smart city pilots that rely on the proposed ecosystem to improve interoperability between a number of system components, but also to reduce regulatory barriers for joint service co-creation practices.
