ComTalks 1: “From Macedonia to Netflix, via PoliTO and Cisco” - a talk with Dena Markudova
First seminar of the ComTalks series
Dena Markudova obtained her Bachelor degree in Telecommunications at a University in Skopje, North Macedonia, before coming to Torino to complete the ICT4SS Master degree. She is now a PhD student working in the SmartData@PoliTO center where she is working on a project with Cisco Systems on Machine Learning applied to Computer Networks.

You will hear how to make an elaborate sensor network for a Smart home; how you can make a fleet of construction vehicles smart; and how far the Internet has come to allow the whole world to communicate entirely remotely. Her next stop: Netflix.
