Picture of Zheng ChenAbstract: With 5G coming to reality, the next question is, what will 6G be? Mobile cellular standards are updated every decade and its evolution is always driven by the evolution of new application demands and user scenarios in mobile networks. From 1G to 5G, the application scenarios have evolved from phone calls, text messages, to online browsing, video streaming, and online gaming. For 6G that is ahead of us, we expect that information data used for Artificial Intelligence (AI) tasks will possibly bypass human-perceived applications and become the dominant source of mobile data traffic. Naturally, this suggests that next generation mobile networks need to evolve to cope with the communication requirements of AI-oriented data traffic in distributed intelligent systems.
In this talk, I will give an overview on distributed intelligence over wireless networks. Some examples will be given to show how an efficient design on signal processing and wireless communication can make a significant difference rather than blindly applying conventional rate-driven wireless design.

Bio: Dr. Zheng Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University. She received a B.Sc. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China, in 2011. Then she received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from CentraleSupélec, Université Paris-Saclay, France, in 2013 and 2016, respectively. From June to November 2015, she was a visiting scholar at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore. From January 2017 to October 2021, she was a postdoc researcher at Linköping University.             

She was the recipient of the 2020 IEEE Communications Society Young Author Best Paper Award. She was selected as an Exemplary Reviewer for IEEE Communications Letters in 2016, for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications in 2017, and for IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2019. Her main research interests include stochastic modeling and optimization, distributed intelligent systems and beyond 5G technologies.
