The GSU chapter of the ACM presents

Demystifying the Internet of Visual Things

Dr. Zhisheng Yan
Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science
Georgia State University

Visual data is the biggest of big data. It has been ubiquitously and continuously collected by cameras and video/graphics-enabled devices. Interacting with such visual content via mobile devices opens the door to compelling applications such as AR, VR, video analytics, holographic teleimmersion, etc., promising a future Internet of Visual Things (IoVT). Unfortunately, continued user frustration and concern with wireless network speed and battery power indicate that our visual experience in current systems is far from satisfactory. In this talk, I will identify the mobile-vision problem, which fundamentally leads to bandwidth and energy inefficiency in current mobile visual computing systems. I will then introduce a unified solution to address all system issues in IoVT applications by presenting a few examples in real-world visual computing systems.

About the Speaker: Zhisheng Yan is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering from the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, in 2017. He also worked in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University as a visiting researcher in 2016. His current research interest is the Internet of Things, focusing on next-generation camera sensing systems, visual communication systems, and computer vision systems. He is the recipient of the ACM SIGMM Outstanding Thesis Award in 2018, the SUNY Buffalo CSE Best Dissertation Award in 2017, the Best Demo Award at ACM HotMobile 2018, the David M. Benenson Memorial Award in 2016, and was runner-up for the Best Student Paper at IEEE HealthCom 2014.
