Emerging Wireless/IoT

Dima Fayyad

The need to attain faster data rates and ultra-low latency are the driving forces behind emerging wireless standards and the promise of 5G communication. Many incredible, bleeding-edge applications, such as community/shared virtual reality experiences and self-driving cars, will crucially rely on the ubiquitous availability and real-time reconfigurability of high-speed wireless links.

The wireless channel and surrounding environment change rapidly, in the order of milliseconds. The current state of the art in wireless protocol design, involving multiple trials and sub-optimal selections with little room for self-optimization, is not geared to support the scale, heterogeneity, and real-time adaptation needed for these future applications. 

Machine learning algorithms able to operate over unprocessed wireless signals from a multitude of transmission protocols have the potential of meeting both the latency requirements associated with these applications, as well as the adaptability necessary in the presence of an ever-changing, volatile wireless environment.

The Institute of Experiential AI has a strong presence and commitment to research over the applications of AI to wireless communications and IoT. In close collaboration with the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things, EAI faculty participate in projects studying the application of deep learning algorithms to the wireless spectrum; in applications ranging from fingerprinting, spectrum allocation, and 5G networks. EAI faculty are developing real-time, robust adaptive learning algorithms to channel conditions while also meeting efficiency constraints imposed by wireless hardware limitations.

Responsible AI

AI Ethics and Responsible AI aim for AI systems that benefit individuals, societies, and the environment. It encompasses all the ethical, legal, and technical aspects of developing and deploying beneficial AI technologies. It includes making sure your AI system does not cause harm, interfere with human agency, discriminate, or waste resources.  AI Ethics and Responsible […]

Natural Language Processing

  GFT (General Fine-Tuning) Recently, deep nets have demonstrated significant progress with exciting results. Much of this work has been reported in leading media outlets and academic conferences such as ACL and NeurIPS. We have developed a “little” language, GFT, that makes deep nets look like regression. GFT is approachable to a broad audience, and […]


At the Institute for Experiential AI, we care about people’s health and wellness. We have several core faculty members with AI health expertise who cover AI for healthcare from multiple scales and various heterogeneous data sources. They work closely with scientists, clinicians, and healthcare providers in designing and developing AI algorithms over a wide range […]

Life Sciences

We live in the Golden Age of Life Sciences, driven in part by transformative advances across multiple fronts in our understanding of biological systems and their applications.  However, we are still only at the beginning of this new chapter.  A systematic strategy that includes humans and AI/ML-based approaches can accelerate the “exponentialization” of this value […]

Climate, Sustainability, and Environment

From climate science and water sustainability to urban resilience and disaster preparedness, Artificial Intelligence has shown significant potential to inform and enable transformative action in the areas of climate, sustainability, and the environment. For example, machine learning, graph analytics, agent-based models, and human-AI systems have shown potential with predictive understanding in earth systems science and […]
