The Future of AI: Academia’s Role in Getting it Right

Online

IEEE Victorian Section TEMS Chapter and the Monash Data Futures Institute are jointly hosting a seminar titled "The Future of AI: Academia's role in getting it right", delivered by distinguished philosopher Prof. Huw Price. Professor Huw Price is an Australian philosopher and Academic Director of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (CFI) at the University of Cambridge. Founded in 2016, CFI was the first of a new generation of interdisciplinary research centres exploring the challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Professor Price was previously the Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy and a Fellow of Trinity College and is a co-founder of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the University of Cambridge. As academics contemplate the future of artificial intelligence from their own vantage point, what they face is an engineering challenge. As he explores the future of AI via his role as an academic, distinguished philosopher Professor Huw Price will share his thoughts on ‘How can we build the most effective academic collaborations, to do our part in 'getting AI right'? ’ REGISTER HERE

Research Trends in NB-IoT

Online

According to one of the leading networking and telecommunication companies, the proliferation of smart (Internet of Things - IoT) devices is expected to reach 4 Billion in 2024 spanning its applications from healthcare to agriculture including education, transportation system, industry, and so on. It brings along with it, the connectivity and coverage challenges that should be dealt with in an efficient way for the proper functioning of the IoT network. Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT), a Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) networking technology, is gaining much attention in the market nowadays due to its distinguishing features. The greatest advantage of NB-IoT is its enhanced coverage which uses the existing Long Term Evolution (LTE) architecture for its functioning. NB-IoT has attracted significant interest from the research community as its distinguishing features support various IoT use cases with stringent specifications such as connectivity, energy efficiency, reachability, reliability, and latency. Considering the growing interest in NB-IoT, this talk highlights the NB-IoT covering its architecture, use cases, advantages and disadvantages. The talk ends with the research road ahead in NB IoT. The talk is an eye-opener for beginners towards NB-IoT.
