Topic: Enabling Low-Latency High-reliability Wireless for Industry Communication Systems

Abstract: Industrial Control Systems (ICSs, e.g., automation, motion control, discrete manufacturing, robotics, refineries) usually needs to continuously monitor the status of the facilities in the plant and perform timely response accordingly. Low latency and high-reliability wired communication networks for ICSs have been successfully deployed for many years using SERCOSIII and other fieldbus standards. Recently, there are increasing interests in moving wireless technologies into manufacturing applications to replace the current wired communication networks to lower the installation and maintenance costs. However, as identified by NIST, the transmission error and delay caused by unreliable wireless connections have been the main concern that prevents the wide usage of wireless networks in manufacturing applications. In this talk, we will discuss the wireless technology to simultaneously address the stringent requirements on latency (close-loop sense-to-actuation time < 1ms) and reliability (transaction error < 10^-9), which are not achieved in the current 5G and other wireless technologies for ICS applications.

Topic: Big Data Privacy: A Machine Learning Perspective

Abstract: Big data is a revolution for our society. However, it also introduces a significant threat to data privacy. In this talk, we firstly review the current work in privacy protection under the framework of big data. Then we discuss the challenges in the domain from different angles, especially the machine learning aspects in field. We humbly hope this talk will shed light for forthcoming researchers to further explore the uncharted part of this promising land.
