    IEEE CASS distinguished lecture

    Lecture title:Perpetual Wireles Video-of-Things 

    Invited speaker: Prof. Yen-Kuang Chen

    Time:9/14 14:20-16:20

    Location:台達館919室 ,Hisnchu- National Tsing Hua University



    Digital sensing, processing, and communication capabilities will be ubiquitously embedded into everyday objects, turning them into an Internet of things (IoT). This is the next-generation Internet rather than data mainly produced by humans and for humans, in the new machine-to- machine-era Internet, data are generated by machines (sensors), communicated without human involvement to other machines (servers or other computer systems) for automated processing to enable automated or human actions, driving speeds and scales unseen by the existing Internet. Distributed video cameras will play important roles in various IoT applications. To resolve the problems of high data rate, high power consumption, and large deployment cost of large-scale distributed video sensors, perpetual video cameras, where net energy consumption is almost zero, are required. Many technologies and design challenges are introduced for designing such cameras, such as energy harvesting, distributed video coding, distributed video analysis, and the associated VLSI designs. In this seminar, we will provide (1) an overview of challenges/opportunities in IoT, (2) an introduction to the role and requirements of distributed smart cameras in IoT, (3) the analysis of power consumption of wireless video cameras, (4) an introduction of energy harvesting techniques, and (5) distributed video coding and distributed video analysis, where both the state-of- the-art works and possible future research directions will be shown.


    Dr. Yen-Kuang Chen received his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University and is an IEEE Fellow. He is a Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation. His research areas span from emerging multimedia and IoT applications to computer architecture. He has 60+ US patents, 20+ pending patent applications, and near 100 technical publications. He is one of the key contributors to Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extension 3 and Advanced Vector Extension in Intel microprocessors. He has served as a program committee member of 50+ international conferences on Internet of Things, multimedia, video communication, image processing, VLSI circuits and systems, parallel processing, and software optimization. He is the founding chair of Internet of Things special interest group of IEEE Circuits and System Society, the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems, and a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Circuits and System Society.
