The Internet of Acoustic Things (IoAT)

Speaker:   Romit Roy Choudhury, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
When:   October 5, 2018, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where:   Research Hall, Room 163


The convergence in sensing, computing, and communications — that perhaps started with smartphones — is now percolating at finer granularities. A lot of recent activity has centered around acoustic systems, including new kinds of ear phones, voice enabled devices (e.g., Amazon Echo), vibration based communication, acoustic localization, etc. A new eco-system is on the horizon, popularly being called as the Internet of Acoustic Things (IoAT). This talk will explore ideas, challenges, and opportunities underlying various IoAT systems, while also paying attention to security and privacy threats that arrive with such applications.
