Distinguished Lectures on Distributed ML and Full-Duplex Communications for Wireless Networks

Deborsi Basu, Secretary for IEEE IIT Kharagpur CS Student Chapter

IEEE Computer Society Student Branch Chapter of the IEEE Kharagpur Section has successfully organized two significant Distinguished Lectures (DL) on next-generation wireless communications. The first lecture on “New System Design Challenges in Implementing Full-Duplex Communications in Next Generation Wireless Networks” was delivered by Prof. Neelesh B. Maheta, Fellow IEEE & Professor at ECE Department, IISc Bangalore, India on 27th February 2021, which was attended by 20 IEEE and 32 guest members.

The second lecture was given by Prof. Walid Saad, Fellow IEEE & Professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, U.S.A on “Distributed Machine Learning in Wireless Networks: Challenges and Opportunities” on 24th March 2021, which was attended by 21 IEEE and 24 guest members.

Both of the distinguished lectures primarily focused on implications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and federated learning techniques in future wireless communication technologies, e.g. SG and beyond networks.
