Networked Intelligence (NetAI) focusing on "Sustainable Orchestration of AI-inspired Cyber-Physical Services employing Shared Software-Defined Infrastructure and Common Cloud-native Platforms".
Composable Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) with SDN/NFV/Cloud integration for human-defined services & Agile and smart media-centric services employing heterogeneous SmartX nodes
Resource-aware service composition framework (i.e., modeling, monitoring, and adaptation) employing heterogeneous C/N/S resources for service-centric Future Internet testbed.
Composible provisioning and persistent visibility for programmable/virtualized resources, balanced resource/services orchestration for hyper-converged SmartX nodes.
Flexible management of data-centric / cloud-native services lifecycle that interacts between AI-inspired services and C/N/S resources.
Mobile edge & content-centric services that leverages opportunistic P2P for ultra-low-latency CPS (cyber physical systems) applications.
Others & Skills
Advanced collaboration environment: Centralized coordination of distributed SmartX nodes for multi-party visual sharing, SMeet scalable and interactive collaboration framework, and Access Grid with networked tiled display.
Flexible & immersive media service protocols & middleware: Flexible media-based service networking with UPnP middleware, Immersive and interactive media contents generation and delivery, Haptic-based multi-party interaction, and networked games & virtual environments.
Resilient and synchronized media distribution: Synchronized/resilient (network-coded) multicast streaming, Prioritized packetization by layered RPI, Reliable and secure media distribution, and Distributed media streaming via P2P/overlay multicasting.
