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.
P. Vijay Kumar received his B.Tech from IIT Kharagpur, M.Tech from IIT Kanpur and Ph.D from the University of Southern California. From 1983-2003 he was a faculty member in the EE-Systems Department of USC. Since 2003 he has been a Professor in the ECE Department of IISc.
All are welcome.
