Title:Challenges and Opportunities of Mobile Development
Mobile devices have become the horsepower of electronic industry in thepast few years. During this burst period, more and more challenges have emergedregarding the usability, power consumption, security and computing efficiencyof the mobile platforms. In the meantime, the presence of innovative devicesand applications, such as the VR/AR headset and wearable devices also providedextremely valuable research topic from the perspectives from the circuit level,system level and algorithms level. In this talk, Dr. Xiang Chen will present hisresearch works on mobile computing, mobile graphic acceleration and mobilesecurity technologies. He will also give a brief introduce to the George MasonUniversity and his Intelligence Fusion Laboratory.
Xiang Chen received his B.S. in Automatization from NortheasternUniversity, China and M.S./Ph.D degree in ECE from the University ofPittsburgh, USA. His research interests include mobile display, low powergraphic computing and mobile security technology. In the past years, he haspublished more than 30 papers in the top international conferences/journals, andreceived many best paper nominations and other awards. He also stays in closecooperation with not only academia society (such as, Duke, UCSB, PITT, Syracuse,Tsinghua, HKUST, CityU, etc.), but also industries, such as the research labsof HP, Samsung, MSRA, Marvell, Amazon and Apple. Now, Xiang Chen is anAssistant Professor in the Department of the Computer Engineering of the GeorgeMason University. The main campus of George Mason University is inthe City of Fairfax, Virginia, approximately 24 km west of Washington, DC.Mason is now ranked among the highest research institutions by the CarnegieClassification of Institutions of Higher Education. U.S. News and World Reportranks Mason as one of the top 10 "Up-and-Coming Institutions" fornational universities, and top 100 "Best Engineering GraduateSchools" in Electrical & Computer Engineering (#80 in CE). It iscurrently the largest and most diverse university in Virginia.
