Title: Streaming Codes for Low-Latency Communication

Speaker: P. Vijay Kumar


Low-latency communication, a cornerstone of the 5G standard, is key to enabling a host of applications such as autonomous vehicle control, interactive augmented and virtual reality, multiplayer gaming and telesurgery.
Our approach to ensuring reliable low-latency communication, is by designing efficient packet-level error-correcting schemes for streaming data, that can handle both burst and random erasures, and that operate under a strict decoding-delay constraint.
Following an overview of research in this area, the talk will present our results on the design of rate-optimal streaming codes, some feedback from industry as well as  preliminary experimental results.
