Keynote I: Human-Centric Contactless Sensing Design in the Age of AIoT

Prof. Qian Zhang

Hong Kong University of Science and Technology


The integration of AI and IoT, especially the development of intelligent sensing technology, creates opportunities for human-centered applications and also brings related challenges. The heterogeneous characteristics of sensed data, the incompleteness of different end-user data, low-quality data caused by limited sensing device resources, as well as related issues such as the privacy of sensing data and the security of intelligent models have brought challenges to the design of intelligent sensing. At the same time, the diversity of sensing modalities and the advancement of contactless sensing have also brought new opportunities for breakthroughs in sensing capabilities and the convenience of sensing services. In this talk, I will focus on sharing cases of how we deal with the above challenges and take advantage of related opportunities in multiple human-centered application scenarios.
