  • Internet of Skills-Enabled by 5G Decoupled Uplink & Downlink

    Fri, Sep 15, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Mischa Dohler, King's College London, UK

    Talk Title: Internet of Skills-Enabled by 5G Decoupled Uplink & Downlink

    Abstract: With the emergence of an ultra-responsive and reliable 5G 'Tactile Internet,' advanced techniques in robotics and artificial intelligence, we advocate for the emergence of an 'Internet of Skills' which allows the "transmission of labor" globally. It will invoke an important shift from content-delivery to skillset-delivery networks, where engineers would service cars or surgeons performing critical operations anywhere on the planet. For this to work, however, we require some fundamental changes to wireless communications systems. This presentation will look at the disruptive technology approaches in wireless 5G, notably the impact of decoupling up and downlinks; as well as the impact it has on different industry verticals.

    Biography: Mischa Dohler is full Professor in Wireless Communications at King's College London, driving cross-disciplinary research and innovation in technology, sciences and arts. He is the Director of the Centre for Telecommunications Research, co-founder of the pioneering smart city company Worldsensing, Fellow of the IEEE, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), and a Distinguished Member of Harvard Square Leaders Excellence.

    He is a frequent keynote, panel and tutorial speaker, and has received numerous awards. He has pioneered several research fields, contributed to numerous wireless broadband, IoT/M2M and cyber security standards, holds a dozen patents, organized and chaired numerous conferences, was the Editor-in-Chief of two journals, has more than 200 highly-cited publications, and authored several books.
