Speech Title: Intelligent Signal Sensing and Recognition Towards Physical Security

Abstract: The dawn of 6G wireless communication introduces a transformative era characterized by pervasive sensing and advanced intelligent identification, essential for ensuring physical security. This keynote speech highlights the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL) as pivotal in addressing the dynamic and complex challenges of 6G networks. We emphasize the role of AI in revolutionizing signal sensing and recognition. Our discussion centers on the application of these neural networks in enhancing signal detection, classification, and Specific Emitter Identification (SEI). By leveraging gradient-based optimization techniques, we demonstrate how ANNs can improve model and algorithm parameterization, leading to a data-driven approach that surpasses traditional rule-based systems. This advancement is crucial in the physical layer of wireless communications, where intelligent signal recognition plays a key role in maintaining security and efficiency. We also explore the challenges faced by conventional model-based methods in the evolving landscape of 6G communication systems, which are marked by complex interference and uncertain channel conditions. DL emerges as a solution, offering innovative strategies for redesigning baseband module functionalities, including coding/decoding and detection processes. In conclusion, this keynote underscores the significance of integrating intelligent signal sensing and recognition with DL technologies in 6G networks. This approach not only enhances physical security but also paves the way for a more robust, efficient, and intelligent wireless communication ecosystem, capable of meeting the security demands of the future.

Speech Title: Research on Compressed Sensing Solutions for Encrypted Image Compression

Abstract: In order to transmit large amounts of image data securely and efficiently, the usual method is to compress the data first to reduce the amount of data, and then encrypt the data that has been compressed. However, in some special application scenarios, it is often necessary to encrypt data first, and then further compress encrypted data. Therefore, it is necessary to solve the problem of encrypted image compression without reducing the security. This report will make use of the characteristics of compressed sensing, a breakthrough technology in the field of signal processing, and systematically introduce how to carry out in-depth research on the problem of information compression in encrypted images, and realize the compressed sensing solutions for encrypting digital images first and then compressing them. This related research has both theoretic significance and practical value. It is promising to obtain some achievements with both innovation and practicality, and provide novel solutions to ensure both the image privacy preserving and utility.

Speech Title: Beyond 5G towards a Super-connected World

Abstract: Connected smart objects, platforms and environments have been identified as the next big technology development, enabling significant society changes and economic growth. The entire physical world will be connected to the Internet, referred to as Internet of Things (IoT). The intelligent IoT network for automatic interaction and processing between objects and environments will become an inherent part of areas such as electricity, transportation, industrial control, utilities management, healthcare, water resources management and mining. Wireless networks are one of the key enabling technologies of the IoT. They are likely to be universally used for last mile connectivity due to their flexibility, scalability and cost effectiveness. The attributes and traffic models of IoT networks are essentially different from those of conventional communication systems, which are designed to transmit voice, data and multimedia. IoT access networks face many unique challenges that cannot be addressed by existing network protocols; these include support for a truly massive number of devices, the transmission of huge volumes of data burst in large-scale networks over limited bandwidth, and the ability to accommodate diverse traffic patterns and quality of service (QoS) requirements. Some IoT applications have much stringent latency and reliability requirements which cannot be accommodated by existing wireless networks. Addressing these challenges requires the development of new wireless access technologies, underlying network protocols, signal processing techniques and security protocols. In this talk, I will present the IoT network development, architecture, key challenges, requirements, potential solutions and recent research progress in this area, particularly in 5G and beyond 5G.

Speech Title: Privacy Preserving Problems in Deep Learning

Abstract: Deep learning is increasingly popular, partly due to its widespread application potential, such as in civilian, government and military domains. Given the exacting computational requirements, cloud computing has been utilized to host user data and model. However, such an approach has potential privacy implications. Therefore, we introduce a method to protect user’s privacy in the inference phase of deep learning workflow. Specifically, we use an intermediate layer to separate the entire neural network into two parts, which are respectively deployed on the user device and the cloud server.
