Intelligent Wireless Networking

Several Smartphones on a Table.

Data-driven algorithms, machine learning methods, and event-driven processing promise to be game changers in improving Quality-of-Servive (QoS) and Quality-of-Experience (QoE) of wireless networks. They make wireless communication systems adaptive, intelligent, and efficient by enabling them to asynchronously react to events and to learn optimal decisions to operate in a proactive manner.

Our recent work focuses on reactive programming of Wi-Fi firmware, learning Wi-Fi connection loss predictions for seamless vertical handovers, in-network complex event processing for information-centric networking, opportunistic computational offloading, context-aware predictions for cloudlet placement, dynamic role assigment in software-defined wireless networks, unsupervised traffic flow classification, and dynamic announcement intervals in wireless on-demand networks.
