[April 20th, 2020] A nice surprise in my mail box at work with a fairly official document containing our patent awarded last year with regards to WiFi network speed characterization.
[March 30th, 2020] Two updates with regards to papers. Our short paper for EuroViz 2020 entitled “Characterizing Exploratory Behaviors on a Personal Visualization Interface Using Interaction Logs” was accepted to appear. Congrats to Poorna on her hard work in driving the paper through.
Our paper presented last week at WristSense 2020 entitled “Improved Sleep Detection Through the Fusion of Phone Agent and Wearable Data Streams” won Honorable Mention for the Apple Best Paper Award. Congrats to Stephen on the presentation and Gonzalo on their work for the paper.
[January 27, 2020] Will be off to Dublin, Ireland in June 2020 for ICC 2020 as our paper on using aggregation as an indication of available bandwidth via purely passive estimations was accepted to the CQRM symposium. If I recall, it was roughly 20 years ago that I went to my first “big” conference attending ICC when it was in Helsinki, Finland. One out of two papers in on this go round to ICC 2020. Wicked cool paper by my former Ph. D student Dr. Lixing Song with an assist from my current Ph. D student Al-Amin Mohammed to get it over the finish line. Bit more on the paper after the break.
[January 23rd, 2020] Our journal paper entitled “A game-theoretic analysis on the economic viability of mobile content pre-staging” is now live via the Wireless Networks journal. The paper focuses on mobile content pre-staging with an eye towards whether or not said pre-staging is solely beneficial to the provider or pre-staging gains are shared with the end-user. This is related to our on-going work NSF grant focusing on PASS (Provider Accessible Storage Subsystem) as this was a pre-cursor paper to that effort that we published at the INFOCOM Workshop on Smart Data Pricing back in 2016. This particular paper offers some nice new insights and an expanded analysis relative to the shorter workshop paper. Kudos to Prof. Liao (my former student, now a tenured professor at Central Michigan) and Prof. Li for their fantastic work on this effort.
[February 12, 2018] The press release for Project Tesserae has now been posted to the main ND News Feed. Many thanks / kudos to my colleagues for helping to make this happen including Gloria Mark, Munmun DeChoudhury, Sidney D’Mello, Andrew Campbell, Nitesh Chawla, Anind Dey, Kaifeng Jiang, Pino Audia, and Qiang Liu.
