Title: Internet of Intelligence for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Abstract: In the era of the Internet of information, we have gone through layer, cross-layer, and cross-system design paradigms. The “curse of modeling” and “curse of dimensionality” of the current Internet of information have resulted in the popularity of using artificial intelligence (AI) for the Internet of information in the recent years. However, many significant research challenges remain to be addressed for the Internet of information to enable connected and autonomous vehicles.

In a larger time scale, humans’ cooperation has gone through “grid of transportation”, “grid of energy”, and “the Internet of information” paradigms. The next cooperation paradigm could be “the Internet of intelligence”, where intelligence can be easily obtained like information and energy. The Internet of intelligence can become an important enabler for connected and autonomous vehicles. In this talk, we will present some recent advances in these areas. Then, we will discuss some open issues and challenges that need to be addressed in the future.

Biography: F. Richard Yu received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2003. From 2002 to 2006, he was with Ericsson (in Lund, Sweden) and a start-up in California, USA. He joined Carleton University in 2007, where he is currently a Professor. He received the IEEE TCGCC Best Journal Paper Award in 2019, Distinguished Service Awards in 2019 and 2016, Outstanding Leadership Award in 2013, Carleton Research Achievement Awards in 2012 and 2020, the Ontario Early Researcher Award (formerly Premiers Research Excellence Award) in 2011, the Excellent Contribution Award at IEEE/IFIP TrustCom 2010, the Leadership Opportunity Fund Award from Canada Foundation of Innovation in 2009 and several Best Paper Awards at prestigious conferences. His research interests include connected/autonomous vehicles, security, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and wireless systems.

He serves on the editorial boards of several journals, including Co-Editor-in-Chief for Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks, Lead Series Editor for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, and IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking. He has served as the TPC Co-Chair of numerous conferences. Dr. Yu is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario, Canada, an IEEE Fellow, IET Fellow, and Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) Fellow. He has been named in the Clarivate Analytics list of “Highly Cited Researchers” since 2019. He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of both Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) and Comm. Society. He is an elected member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE VTS and Editor-in-Chief for IEEE VTS Mobile World newsletter.
