02/09/2019 – CONNECT Machine Learning Summer School

The first CONNECT Machine Learning summer school took place in Trinity College Dublin. Over 80 attendees (including students and researchers from other universities) were treated to talks from members of the academic community and from industry on the latest developments of machine learning and AI in the area of communications. Presenters included Prof. Marco Di Renzo from CentraleSupelec, Dr. Jacob Hoydis of Nokia Bell Labs, Michaela Blott of Xilinx, as well as SATORI’s own Dr. Yong Li.



12/07/2019 – SATORI at SSIE 2019

Andrea Bonfante and Andre Gomes at SSIE 2019

Andre Gomes attended the Summer School of Information Engineering (SSIE) alongside CONNECT’s Andrea Bonfante. The summer school was hosted in Brixen/Bressanone, Italy, and organised by the University of Padova. What a place! What a team! The program mostly addressed the application of Machine Learning to Biomedical, Cyber-security, and Telecommunications. An inspirational week full of ideas and motivation while looking forward to the progress of the SATORI project.

10/07/2019 – SATORI to rendezvous at CentraleSupélec

While attending the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) in Paris, Prof. Sheng Zhou and Prof. Zhiyuan Jiang decided to pay a short visit to Dr Jacek Kibilda at CentraleSupélec, Gif-Sur-Yvette, where he is currently a visiting researcher on the Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) of the COST Action CA15104 IRACON. The visit started with Sheng giving a seminar presentation on “Exploiting the Moving Intelligence: Computation Offloading in Vehicular Networks” to the local telecommunications research group, which was followed by a campus tour and lunch organised by our hosts at CentraleSupélec. Post-lunch there was time for research discussions and planning of future collaboration efforts.

It’s great to see the SATORI team developing their collaboration outside of regular project meetings!

27/06/2019 – Short Term Scientific Mission Grant of COST Action IRACON to Dr Jacek Kibilda

Dr Jacek Kibilda, Trinity College Dublin, has been been awarded a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) grant of the COST Action CA15104 IRACON to work with Prof. Marco Di Renzo of the Laboratory of Signals and Systems at CentraleSupélec/University Paris-Saclay for a month in July. Dr Kibilda will be researching service reliability measures and usage of neural networking for resource allocation problems in shared mobile networks.

20/06/2019 – The SATORI Project Workshop

The semi-annual SATORI Project workshop is held in Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, from 20/06/2019 to 21/06/2019. The two-day workshop has excellent keynotes from industry and academia, and technical presentations from our project members. Specifically, we have invited Dr. Geng Wu, Dr. Xiangbin Wu from Intel to talk about their view on 6G and autonomous driving, and Prof. Xiaojing Wang from Research Institute of Highway, China Ministry of Transportation, to talk about ITS and autonomous vehicles, and Prof. Yu Cheng from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA, to talk about security in distributed computing.

Our technical presentations cover topics of AI-inspired wireless technologies, including radio characterization and spectrum sensing, situation-aware MAC, CSI prediction, and etc. Students also talk about using stochastic geometry for directional transmissions and drone networks, spatial-temporal prediction for mobile traffics, and computing offloading the vehicular networks. They have demonstrated significant progresses of the SATORI project, and the brain-storming discussion has inspired much more to come!
