    Title: Internet of Video Things (IoVT): Next Generation IoT with Visual Sensors

    Speaker: Prof. Chang Wen Chen (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, China & State University of New York at Buffalo, USA)

    Abstract: The worldwide flourishing of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the past decade has enabled numerous new applications through the internetworking of a wide variety of devices and sensors. More recently, visual sensors have seen their considerable booming because they usually capable of providing richer and more versatile information. Internetworking of large-scale visual sensors has been named Internet of Video Things (IoVT). IoVT has its own unique characteristics in sensing, transmission, storage, and analysis, which are essentially different from conventional IoT. These new characteristics of IoVT are expected to impose significant challenges to existing technical infrastructures. In this talk, an overview of recent advances in various fronts of IoVT will be introduced and a broad range of technological and system challenges will be presented.

    Bio: Chang Wen Chen is currently Dean of School of Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. He is also an Empire Innovation Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York since 2008. He was Allen Henry Endow Chair Professor at the Florida Institute of Technology from July 2003 to December 2007. He was on the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester from 1992 to 1996 and on the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia from 1996 to 2003. He has been the Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Trans. Multimedia from January 2014 to December 2016. He has also served as the Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Trans. Circuits and Systems for Video Technology from January 2006 to December 2009. He has been an Editor for several other major IEEE Transactions and Journals, including the Proceedings of IEEE, IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications, and IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems. He has served as Conference Chair for several major IEEE, ACM and SPIE conferences related to multimedia video communications and signal processing. His research is supported by NSF, DARPA, Air Force, NASA, Whitaker Foundation, Microsoft, Intel, Kodak, Huawei, and Technicolor. He received his BS from University of Science and Technology of China in 1983, MSEE from University of Southern California in 1986, and Ph.D. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992. He and his students have received nine (9) Best Paper Awards or Best Student Paper Awards over the past two decades. He has also received several research and professional achievement awards, including the Sigma Xi Excellence in Graduate Research Mentoring Award in 2003, Alexander von Humboldt Research Award in 2009, the University at Buffalo Exceptional Scholar – Sustained Achievement Award in 2012, and the State University of New York System Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities in 2016. He is an IEEE Fellow since 2004 and an SPIE Fellow since 2007.
