ECE Seminar EE 290: Addressing food, water, and energy security with AI, BI, CI, and DI*

Jonathan Trent, Ph.D.
Adjunct Professor

Abstract: It is estimated that 50% of the useable land on Earth is already used for agriculture and of that 77% is dedicated to raising livestock (cows, chickens, pigs, and sheep).  Agriculture uses 70% of our freshwater--it takes 15,000 liters of water to make 1kg of beef, 1,020 liters of...

Advancement: Energy-Efficient Massive MIMO For 5G Wireless Networks: Variable-Resolution ADC Bit-allocation, Precoder and Combiner Design

Fnu Ishaq Basha Zakir Ahmed
PhD Student (Advisor: Hamid Sadjadpour)

Abstract:  We study the adoption of variable-bit-resolution Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC) in massive multiple-input-multiple-output (Ma-MIMO) receivers in the context of improvising the energy efficiency. The 5G standards are defining the next generation of mobile communications. The 5G... Read More

On Boundary Feedback Control of 1-D Hyperbolic Conservation Laws: Robustness to Measurement Noise

Francesco Ferrante

  Abstract: The tight description of many physical phenomena relies on mathematical models in which variables that depend simultaneously on space and time are related each other through differential relationships. This leads to systems modeled via partial differential equations (PDEs).... Read More
