Topic: Pervasive Computing in the New Era of AI

Pervasive computing aims at creating a smart environment with ubiquitous interconnected devices that provides unobtrusive services to the users, improving users’ experience and quality of life without requiring them to know the underlying technologies. The recent development of IoT, which has largely evolved out of pervasive computing, add more to the list more features like data-driven and user participation and has wider areas of applications.
The goal of pervasive computing is to make computer devices and systems “smart”, being context-aware, responsive, and adaptive to the user’s context and activity. The recent developments of AI bring us many pieces of innovation and technologies that make machines and people not only faster and more efficient but also smarter. This panel discusses whether AI development changes the way of R&D and creates new opportunities of pervasive computing, and how AI technologies can be leveraged to accelerate the impact and enhance the performance of pervasive computing systems and applications. 

Moderator: Jiannong Cao, Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Panelists: Christian Becker (University of Mannheim, Germany), Sajal K. Das (Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA), George Roussos (Birkbeck College, UK), Yu Wang (UNC Charlotte, USA)
