IOTA has welcomed a globally recognised research Professor, Jon Crowcroft, into its research council so as to boost its success in Internet of Things (IoT) space. This is to enable the project to compete for eventual outstanding achievement.
IOTA Foundation shared the update via its official medium page, listing the the experience embedded in the newly incorporated Research Professor.
Why Professor Jon Crowcroft?
Professor Jon Crowcroft is a renowned, experienced and one of the most globally recognised researchers in distributed computing. He has been working on decentralised systems since 1981 – that’s over 36 years of experience.
Crowcroft had involved in groundbreaking works that have initiated transformation in the field where he’s noted as professional. At University of Cambridge, he’s the Marconi Professor of Communications Systems in the Computer Laboratory.
At Alan Turing Institute, the renowned Professor is also the Chair of the Programme Committee, and the Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery, coupled with the Fellow of the Royal Society and lots more.
Crowcroft is an author of a lot of books and publications. He’d been involved in protocol level systems like Linux Protocol and TCP/IP. All these have quite bolstered his outstanding career in the field of distributed systems.
So for Crowcroft to join IOTA research council is indeed great boost. The experiences he has garnered over the years, especially on open distributed systems align perfectly well with the strife of IOTA Foundation in making IOTA the frame of the Internet of Things (IoT).
A lot of things make the Professor a fit advisor for IOTA. His addition would bring great improvement and speedy success as expected by IOTA Foundation if his research interest is put to consideration.
While reacting to this news, Professor Jon Crowcroft stressed about his interest to continue dispensing his capabilities in the field of his profession despite his age. He pointed that IOTA possesses indispensable ability to make notable impact in the nascent IoT space. He specifically showcased his joy to serve in advisory position for IOTA.
IOTA Foundation also exhibited its excitement in welcoming a fully loaded Professor into its research council. It expressed how much it strived to finally convince him to join its team of success pushers, averring that he function especially in the space of Internet of Things (IoT) and also in enhancing IOTA’s mainstream adoption.
