Internet of Things (IoT) is a common phrase, even for people who are not deeply interested in technology and research. From a simple household Thermostat to complex Industry of Intelligent Things (IIoT), IoT is steadily influencing our present and the future. Schwab (2016) refers this change as “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Advances in Artificial Intelligence is accelerating this revolution by spawning a new flavor of Internet of Things, which is referred as Internet of Intelligent Things (Bello & Zeadally, 2016). This concept has always been of great interest for me and remains a driving gear for my motivations in research.
I spent most of my senior year (B.E) in studying software development and Intelligence in electrical systems (Smart systems). I worked on projects such as Integrated Smart Meters alongside Schneider Electric and High Voltage Breakdown Automation sponsored by National Instruments which seamlessly implemented Internet of Things. My interests during my Bachelor’s degree mostly

I developed an inexorable desire to research and contribute more to this field. With the advent of machine intelligence in our everyday life, I believe there is a great need and scope in understanding Human – AI interaction. To turn this desire into reality I pursed Master’s (Thesis) degree at Purdue University with concentration on Human Centered Design and Development. When I studied cognitive issues in Human Centered Design and Development, I learned about several intriguing topics such as joint cognition, distributed cognitive systems, mixed initiative systems and their role in making technology human centered. This enabled me to view the HCI field through lens of cognitive science and autonomous systems. I was able to present my new-found view by writing a paper – “Mixed Initiative Usability” which talks about the application of usability principles onto intelligent
