Abstract- By identifying concept associations during talks and drawing on prior knowledge, ontology-based chatbots preserve context. Even while these agents are able to adjust to their environment, in hostile circumstances they could still display abnormalities. These discrepancies could lead to poor action planning and ineffective adaptation. Therefore, we present a dynamic ontology-based conversational model that selects the best suited answer based on prior experience and knowledge base in order to better action planning and adaptation in hostile scenarios. Since emotions are important in human existence, our method shows the emotional state for different conversational agents instead of only emojis. For this reason, our research will illustrate a conversational bot that functions in a lifelike manner. We employ the ontology Rela-model for ontology, which consists of three parts (C, R,).

Overview of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things): Protocols, Models, Roles, Objectives and Future Trends

Lea Yue, Kung Yi

Department of Computer Science and Information Technology (CS&IT), Korea

Abstract- As a complex cyber-physical system, IoT integrates various devices equipped with sensing, identification, processing, com-munication, and networking capabilities. In particular, sensors and actuators are getting increasingly powerful, less expensive and smaller, which makes their use ubiquitous. Industries have strong interest in deploying IoT devices to develop industrial applications such as automated monitoring, control, management, and maintenance. Due to the rapid advances in technology and industrial infrastructure, IoT is expected to be widely applied to industries. For example, the food industry is integrating WSN and RFID to build automated systems for tracking, monitoring, and tracing food quality along the food supply chain in order to improve food quality. This paper reviews the recent researches on IoT from the industrial perspective. Firstly, we introduce the background and SOA models of IoT and then discuss the fundamental technologies that might be used in IoT. Next, we introduce some key industrial applications of IoT. Afterward, we analyzed the research challenges and future trends associated with IoT. Different from other IoT survey papers, a main contribution of this review paper is that it focuses on industrial IoT applications and highlights the challenges and possible research opportunities for future industrial researchers.

Peer to Peer Overlay Network in IoT: An Overview

Sofia Munawar

Department of Computer Science, University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan

Abstract- Within the quickly advancing scene of the Internet of Things (IoT), where computing and communications situations need centralized control, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) overlay systems have risen as a promising arrangement. These overlays serve as an establishment for large-scale information sharing, substance dispersion, and application-level multicast functionalities. This paper presents a comprehensive study and comparison of structured and Unstructured P2P overlay systems, categorizing them based on their plan range. The investigation starts with a foundational definition of P2P and a diagram of common operational methods. To pick up bits of knowledge into viable P2P models and conventions, execution measurements are talked about. The paper advance digs into a nitty gritty classification and comparison of current P2P structures, emphasizing question look conventions inside the comparing P2P systems. Furthermore, the consider surveys existing P2P demonstrating yields, laying out common approaches. Novel applications established in P2P strategies are investigated, providing a see into long term of P2P overlay systems. The objective of this paper is to offer a clear and intensive study of P2P systems, following their advancement and advancement, and clearing the way for future investigate headings in this energetic field.
