报告题目：How to Harness Opportunistic Resource and Capability
Abstract：Connected things in various cyber-physical systems (CPSs) such as IoTs and smart cities enable us to sense physical environments, extract intelligent information, and better regulate physical systems we heavily depend on in our daily life. This has also generated tremendous traffic burden on our existing telecommunications infrastructure, resulting in significant spectrum shortage. Moreover, it has been witnessed that battery-powered devices such as smart phones tend to deplete their energy much faster than before and this trend will continue if not carefully considering network-wide power consumption. Furthermore, heterogeneity in network technologies and devices and the lack of comprehensive study on interdependency in a system of systems have also caused serious concerns on security and privacy. How to take a holistic approach to carefully examining network-wide design issues on spectrum, energy and security is of paramount importance.
In this talk, the speaker will discuss various related problems and challenges in a connected world and then present a novel collaborative network solution to enabling connected things to effectively harvest in-network capability (spectrum, energy, storage, and computing power) in a cognitive fashion to intelligently manage the spectrum efficiency, energy efficiency, and yes, security!
