The ComNet research group from Stavanger AI Lab invites to a special guest lecture on technologies for advanced “smart” services.
Digital technologies – the drivers of Smart Cities and Industry 4.0?
The ComNet research group from Stavanger AI Lab will be visited by the University of Padova on the 26th of November, because of the 5G-MODaNeI project, aiming to provide security and dependability in the management and orchestration of network and data resources in 5G Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), which consists in a storage and computing platform at the edge of the 5G Radio Access Network.
Our guests will give an open guest lecture. Stavanger AI Lab and The research network for smart sustainable cities would like you to join us for the lecture, some refreshments and time for guestions and mingling.
Modern Sensing, Communication, and Learning technologies for advanced “smart” services
Digital technologies are undoubtedly the drivers of some interesting paradigms, ranging from Smart Cities to Industry 4.0. These scenarios offer countless possibilities of development, from smart mobility in urban environment, to predictive maintenance of industrial machinery or robotic tele-operation, just to mention a few.
In this talk, we present some enabling technologies for such scenarios and discuss their potential in a few target use-case. More specifically, we discuss the LoRa communication technology, illustrating its possible application for data collection in energy-constrained scenarios or for the tracking of a swarm of mobile nodes. Then, we briefly illustrate some new transport protocols to support time-sensitive applications over the public Internet, exploiting parallel streams and smart data scheduling. Finally, we discuss distributed reinforcement learning approaches to automatically manage network slicing in modern communication networks, in order to serve classes of customers with variegate quality-of-service requirements.
Finally, we conclude the talk with an overview of other possible applications of the considered technologies in scenario like Smart Cities and Industry 4.0.
Andrea Zanella is Professor at the Department of Information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Padova, where he is one of the coordinators of the SIGNET research lab. His research interests are mainly in wireless protocols and (conventional and unconventional) networks. He will give a talk about mathematical modelling of LoRa (a IoT technology widely used in smart city).
Federico Mason is a Ph.D. Student at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova
His research interest areTelecommunication networks and Deep Reinforcement Learning.
