  • 5G Mobile Communications

  • The 5th generation (5G) mobile communication is the next generation of wireless broadband connection. To establish a ubiquitous connection of people and things, 5G has three specifications: enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable low-latency communications, and massive machine-type communications. Our research focuses on dynamic spectrum sharing, orthogonal frequency-division multiple access, and multiple-input multiple-output technique for 5G.
  • Internet of Things

  • The Internet of Things (IoT) allows users to gather data from the physical environment. New information and communication technologies make the IoT scalable and reliable to support the emerging demand for smart cities, active health, and connected cars. Our research focuses on energy-efficient communications and networking, big data analysis, and security and trustworthiness of the IoT.
  • Deep Learning

  • Deep neural networks use algorithms, big data, and computing power of digital systems to enable machines to learn quickly, accurately, and on a large scale. Our research explores convolutional neural network, recurrent neural network, deep reinforcement learning, generative adversarial networks, and other advanced methods that drive artificial intelligence.
