Wearable Sensors for Ubiquitous-Healthcare – AI is a Key Enabler


ABSTRACT: Several of the grand challenges in engineering for current and future healthcare and societal needs require wearable sensors and data analytics. In the health areas, we will discuss some major healthcare issues related to active aging and several examples of smart wearable systems. We will discuss the use of wearable sensor systems to measure your walking signals and sleep quality, and their customization to an individual’s needs. Smart sensors are also used for a living diary and in a smart home server that functions as the “brain” of a smart medical home. In all these applications, intelligent software techniques is a key enabler for their user-friendly, accurate and cost-effective use. Further, the use of data analytics and intelligent software is important to provide customizable information to the users based on data collected from a variety of sensors. In addition, we will discuss some of the trends and opportunities in wearable sensors for healthcare. Finally, we will discuss some applications of smart sensors and data analytics, and what are some important research issues in sensors, home networks, autonomic systems and healthcare in the context of a futuristic smart medical home.

Infrastructure for VR and AR: Computing and Store


ABSTRACT: Computational continuum as a critical infrastructure, we must know how to coordinate and compile the implementation solution of computational continuum. Edge computing is an indispensable part of computing continuum. There are many interesting examples about edge computing, such as intelligence enhancement, improving edge computing performance through AR and VR capabilities, for field work, for mixed reality training or for virtual application scenarios in urban environments. All examples require a robust and flexible infrastructure.

The question on top of all this is: how do we push AI to the edge? We don't want to write different applications for each platform, we just want the infrastructure to be smart, so, which characteristics of edge computing systems should be abstracted as first-class citizens into the underpinning model? On this basis, we put forward the argument of marginal intelligence. The complexity of the systems that we have nowadays require that we put intelligence into the infrastructure, and not to the software application itself. And we also require fundamentally novel mechanisms for this infrastructure.

On the Three Layers of Sustainable Computing: Challenges and Opportunities


ABSTRACT: Climate change and energy crisis are two of the biggest global issues of our time. It is critical to develop computing techniques that do not compromise the wellbeing of future generations. To reduce IT carbon footprint, and to support emerging data-analytic workloads that tend to scale well with large number of compute nodes, there is a heightening demand for green high-performance computing and communication systems. In this talk we would like to share our views on the design methodologies for sustainable computing. We divide sustainable computing system design into three layers and present the opportunities that each layer faces. We also discuss the deep challenges that must be addressed in the sustainable computing era. First, a new resource management abstraction for gaining visibility into the underlying infrastructure is needed. In addition, a framework that synergistically combines various software/hardware tuning knobs at each layer is necessary. Finally, it is time to develop appropriate autonomic control schemes to handle the dynamicity and complexity of the cloud. The above methodology constitutes the initial idea of a “Energy-Architecture-Workload” co-designed approach, which will lead to a more environmentally friendly digital infrastructure, as required by the ongoing shift in computing paradigm.

Parallel intelligent processing and application in ultrasonic images


ABSTRACT: Ultrasound (US) imaging is a widely used screening tool for defects examination and prenatal diagnosis. Accurate acquisition of fetal standard planes with key anatomical structures is crucial for substantial biometric measurement and diagnosis. However, the standard plane acquisition is a labour-intensive task and requires operators equipped with a thorough knowledge of fetal anatomy, which leads to a high rate of misdiagnosis in diagnosing fetal malformations. To improve the accuracy and real-time of AI-based systems for automatic ultrasound image detection and quality assessment, various deep learning models are proposed to improve the corresponding accuracy of standard plane interpretation. And different parallel computing models, including pipeline, data parallelism and communication optimization methods, are used to achieve real-time standard plane detection. In addition, we create a novel end-edge-cloud collaborative architecture for ultrasound image interpretation and auxiliary diagnosis to alleviate the workload and boost examination efficiency.

Information Superbahn Planet-Scale Low-Entropy High-Goodput Computing Utility


ABSTRACT: The idea of utility computing was proposed 60 years ago by John McCarthy, but now is poised to become a mainstream reality. This talk presents Information Superbahn, a perspective on computing utility, built on experiences of grid computing, services computing, and cloud computing. According to the Information Superbahn perspective, future computing utility should provide worldwide subscribers with four distinct features: (1) pay-per-use services, (2) planet-scale culture, (3) low-entropy systems, and (4) high-goodput utility. Preliminary evidence is provided to reveal the potential of Information Superbahn.

Data Driven Research for AlOT


ABSTRACT: Over the last few years, the applications of artificial intelligence technology are becoming more and more approved by the society, as the number of people slowly warming up to the idea of including AI in our everyday lives increases. On the other hand, with the popularity of IoT (Internet of Things), the amount of data people need to analyze grows. The analysis of these data relies more on AI technology. As a bridge between the physical world and the digital world, IoT also provides new opportunities to apply to AI technology.

As a result, the birth of AIoT (artificial intelligence of things), the combination of AI and IoT, is inevitable. AIoT has unwittingly penetrated every aspect of human life, from small mobile applications and smart homes to large massive group analysis, city management, and policymaking. However, AIoT, like any other technological inventions, brings not only crucial and new opportunities but also challenging obstacles to human beings at the same time. Is AIoT our new Pandora’s box?
