• What we'll do
Go beyond working with public datasets and enter the realm of Intelligent Multi-Sensor Analytics (IMSA). In the first half of this presentation, we’ll introduce concepts and methods for using deep learning in multi-sensor systems and applications. There are many resources and examples available for learning how to leverage deep learning with public datasets. However, few resources exist to demonstrate how to combine and use these techniques to process multi-sensor data. We will introduce some examples of using deep learning to process radio frequency (RF) signals, intelligent video analytics (IVA) from traffic cameras, and more. We'll also introduce methods for adapting existing deep learning frameworks for multiple sensor signal types (for example, RF, video, and radar). We'll share examples of leveraging IMSA in smart city, telecommunications, and security applications.

During the second half of the presentation, we will introduce new concepts and algorithms that apply deep learning specifically to radio frequency (RF) data to advance the state of the art in signal processing and digital communications. With the ubiquity of wireless devices, the crowded RF spectrum poses challenges for cognitive radio and spectral monitoring applications. Furthermore, the RF modality presents unique processing challenges due to the complex-valued data representation, large data rates, and unique temporal structure. We'll present innovative deep learning architectures to address these challenges, which are informed by the latest academic research and our extensive experience building RF processing solutions. We'll also outline various strategies for pre-processing RF data to create feature-rich representations that can significantly improve performance of deep learning approaches in this domain. We'll discuss various use-cases for RF processing engines powered by deep learning that have direct applications to telecommunications, spectral monitoring, and the Internet of Things.
