"In-Home Passive Health Monitoring: From Wearables to Invisibles"
Next lecture: 2 p.m. | Friday, April 27, 2018 | Dina Katabi, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.
CSL Auditorium (B02)
This talk discusses advances in wireless sensing that allow for monitoring people’s movements, gait, falls, sleep patterns, breathing, and heart rate, all without putting any sensor on the person. The new technology can even see people’s movements through walls and occlusions. The device transmits a low power radio signal (1000 times less power than WiFi) and analyses the interaction of the signal with the human body to derive precise information about a person’s location, movement, and physiological characteristics.
A key challenge in realizing this technology is that radio signals interact with essentially everything in the environment. Any attempt to monitor a person has to somehow identify and isolate relevant information from pervasive interference and
extraneous reflections from objects in the environment. We overcome this challenge using an interdisciplinary approach that combines innovations in signal processing, machine learning, and wireless systems.
Katabi is the winner of the 2017 ACM Prize in Computing, an award that recognizes an early to mid-career fundamental innovative contribution in computing that, through its depth, impact and broad implications, exemplifies the greatest achievements in the discipline.
56th Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing
October 2-5, 2018 University of Illinois
Each year, the Allerton Conference draws some of the brightest minds from industry, academia and government to discuss innovation in the fields of communication, control and computing. We invite you to submit your work and join us at Allerton Park and Retreat Center for an exciting few days of presentations, special events and networking. 2018 Conference Co-Chairs: Negar Kiyavash and Daniel Liberzon
CSL Social Hour
Fridays at 3pm, CSL 369 - University of Illinois
Join us for CSL Social Hour each Friday at 3 p.m. during the academic year. It's a great opportunity to network with fellow researchers and learn more about the breadth of work underway in CSL. Refreshments will be served. The event is hosted in CSL 369.
