Creating Autonomous Vehicle Systems
Prof.Jean-Luc Gaudiot,IEEE Fellow,AAAS Fellow ,2017 IEEE Computer Society President,Eta Kappa Nu, Honor Society of IEEE, Professional Member (inducted December 11, 2015)
University of California - Irvine
Abstract

In this technical overview of autonomous vehicles, we share our practical experiences designing autonomous vehicle systems. Autonomous vehicle systems are complex, consisting of three major subsystems: algorithms for localization, perception, and planning and control; client systems, such as the robotics operating system and hardware platform; and the cloud platform, which includes data storage, simulation, high-definition (HD) mapping, and deep learning model training. The algorithm subsystem extracts meaningful information from sensor raw data to understand its environment and make decisions about its actions. The client subsystem integrates these algorithms to meet real-time and reliability requirements. The cloud platform provides offline computing and storage capabilities for autonomous vehicles. Using the cloud platform, we are able to test new algorithms and update the HD map and develop better recognition, tracking, and decision models.

Biography

Professor Jean-Luc Gaudiot received the Diplôme d'Ingénieur from the École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs en Electronique et Electrotechnique, Paris, France in 1976 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1977 and 1982, respectively. He is currently a Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of California, Irvine. He was Chair of the Department from 2003 to 2009. During his tenure, the department underwent significant changes. These include the hiring of twelve new faculty members (three senior professors) and the remarkable rise in the US News and World Report® rankings of the Computer Engineering program from 42 to 28 (46 to 36 for the Electrical Engineering program). Prior to joining UCI in January 2002, he was a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California since 1982, where he served as Director of the Computer Engineering Division for three years. He has also designed distributed microprocessor systems at Teledyne Controls, Santa Monica, California (1979-1980) and performed research in innovative architectures at the TRW Technology Research Center, El Segundo, California (1980-1982). He frequently acts as consultant to companies that design high-performance computer architectures, and has served as an expert witness in patent infringement and product liability cases. His research interests include multithreaded architectures, fault-tolerant multiprocessors, and implementation of reconfigurable architectures. He has published over 200 journal and conference papers. His research has been sponsored by NSF, DoE, and DARPA, as well as a number of industrial organizations. From 2006 to 2009, he was the first Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Computer Architecture Letters, a new publication of the IEEE Computer Society, which he helped found to the end of facilitating short, fast turnaround of fundamental ideas in the Computer Architecture domain. From 1999 to 2002, he was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Computers. In June 2001, he was elected chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, and re-elected in June 2003 for a second two-year term. In 2009, he was elected to the Board of Governors of the IEEE Computer Society for a 3-year-term. He was the Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Publications Board Transactions Operations Committee (2010-2011), the Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Publications Board Magazines Operations Committee in 2012, the IEEE Computer Society vice President, Educational Activities Board in 2013, and 2014-2015 IEEE Computer Society vice President, Publications Board. He is now the 2017 IEEE Computer Society President. Dr. Gaudiot is a member of AAAS, ACM, and IEEE. He has also chaired the IFIP Working Group 10.3 (Concurrent Systems). He was co-General Chairman of the 1992 International Symposium on Computer Architecture, Program Committee Chairman of the 1993 IFIP Working Conference on Architectures and Compilation Techniques for Fine and Medium Grain Parallelism, the 1993 IEEE Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing (Systems Track), the 1995 Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques Conference (PACT ‘95), the High Performance Computer Architecture conference in 1999 (HPCA-5), and the 2005 International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium. In 1999, he became a Fellow of the IEEE, “For Contributions to the Programmability and Reliability of Dataflow Architectures.” He was elevated to the rank of AAAS Fellow in 2007, “For Distinguished Contributions to the Design and Analysis of Highly Efficient Multiprocessor and Memory System Architectures.”

Secure Data Sharing based on Blockchain
Chunming Rong, Prof. Dr.,Co-chair, IEEE Blockchain and Chair, IEEE Cloud Computing
Head, Center of IP-based Services Innovation (CIPSI), University of Stavanger, NORWAY
Abstract

Data sharing has become a popular daily life activity all around the world. Data analysis may yield value in different aspects. Data driven services has foreseen potential in many sectors, for example energy, health, banking, insurance and transportation. However, violations of user privacy and digital rights management (DRM) in form of unintended data use, corporate applications and security breaches are being widely reported across multiple sources. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims at protecting individual`s privacy. Cloud service providers dealing with EU citizen data must fully adopt to GDPR by 2018. However, accountability frameworks for distributed IT services is needed but still absent; hence it is difficult for users to understand, influence and determine how their service providers honor their obligations. It is important to support users in deciding and tracking how cloud service providers use their data. Blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), through recent development, enables not only transactions, but also smart contracts allowing complex computation on a network where parties are geographically distant or have no particular trust in each other to interact and exchange value and information on a fully distributed basis with fewer to non-existent central intermediaries. Our patented blockchain based decentralized and distributed technology proposes a novel on-the-fly dynamic control framework on shared data. The solution uniquely allows a user to trace, retract, remove and limit sharing of shared content. It gives the digital right and sharing control power back to the data creator, which is often considered as lost once it is shared today. It aims to create balance between data utility and privacy, thus creating a win-win situation between organizations and their customers.

Satellites as an Enabling Technology for Internet of Things
Mohammed Atiquzzaman, Ph.D.,Edith J. Kinney Gaylord Presidential Professor, School of Computer Science
University of Oklahoma
Abstract

Satellites are expected to be an integral part of ubiquitous communications required for implementing Internet of Things. Data communications between Earth and spacecrafts, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offers a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of spacecrafts however gives rise to mobility management issues. This talk will discuss various mobility management solutions for extending the Internet of Things to satellites. The talk with provide an overview of the network layer based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare with the transport layer based solution that have been developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for incorporating satellites in Internet of Things. Network in motion is an extension of the host mobility protocols for managing the mobility of networks which are in motion, such as those in airplanes and trains. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.
