CSIS Seminar

Wireless AI for the Internet of Things

Speaker:   Chenshu Wu, University of Maryland, College Park
When:   March 4, 2021, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where:   Zoom


We are rapidly moving towards a ubiquitously connected, interactive world of AIoT, where pervasive sensing is highly demanded to bridge the cyber and physical space. Today's computers, despite their powerful computing and networking capabilities, still lack effective sensing of the physical world to make possible revolutionary applications for smart homes, digital health, autonomous vehicles, cybersecurity. This talk will focus on wireless AI for seamless, high-precision sensing and tracking for smart homes, healthcare, cars, and beyond. I will introduce how we unleash the incredible potentials of pervasive wireless signals (such as WiFi) for a wide range of sensing applications, including home security, sleep monitoring, fall detection, gait recognition, all in a contactless and sensorless way without cameras or wearables, which have been commercialized as award-winning products. I will then present a large-scale, decimeter-level indoor tracking system using a single commodity WiFi Access Point, which is easy to install and can support an unlimited number of clients just like GPS does. The prototype system has been demoed at big companies like Apple, Qualcomm, HP, etc. I will conclude the talk with future directions towards advanced wireless AI for intelligent cyber-physical perception and interaction.
