Beef Up the Edge: Building a Service Network for Sensing, Communications, Computing, Storage and Intelligence at the Edge


ABSTRACT: Sensing collects data for information, communications transports data for spot data consumption, computing enables data processing and intelligence extraction for decision making and control, while storage provides flexible buffering for optimal scheduling and content distribution, all together providing services for better quality of life. We observe an emerging paradigm shift: network technology is no longer just for message exchanges, rather becomes a utility as the consequence of the convergence of sensing, communications, computing, storage and intelligence (SCCSI), pushing needed services closer to the customers. In this talk, the speaker will present his view on how to put all pieces together and beef up the edge to intelligentize the life dependable systems.

BIO: Dr. Yuguang "Michael" Fang received MS degree from Qufu Normal University, Shandong, China in 1987, PhD degree in Systems and Control Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 1994 and PhD degree in Electrical and Computing Engineering from Boston University in 1997. He was an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology from 1998 to 2000. He then joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Florida in 2000 as an assistant professor, then was promoted to an associate professor in 2003 and a full professor in 2005 and has been a distinguished professor since 2019. He holds University of Florida Preeminence Term Professorship (2019-2022), University of Florida Research Foundation (UFRF) Professorship (2006-2009, 2017-2020), and University of Florida Term Professorship (2017-2019, 2019-2021).

Dr. Fang received the US National Science Foundation Career Award in 2001 and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award in 2002, 2018 IEEE Vehicular Technology Outstanding Service Award, 2019 Communications Society AHSN Technical Achievement Award, 2015 IEEE Communications Society CISTC Technical Recognition Award, 2014 IEEE Communications Society WTC Recognition Award, and multiple Best Paper Awards from IEEE Globecom (2015, 2011 and 2002) and IEEE ICNP (2006). He has also received the 2019 ECE Faculty Excellence Award in Research, 2010-2011 UF Doctoral Dissertation Advisor/Mentoring Award, and the 2009 UF College of Engineering Faculty Mentoring Award.
