We are very pleased to announce the following talk by Prof. Ai-Chun Pang on Edge Intelligence for Connected Cars, as per the following details:


Edge Intelligence for Connected Cars: Performance, Privacy and Robustness


With advances in wireless communications and sensing technologies, autonomous and connected cars are becoming a reality. Emerging vehicular applications will require significant computing power to process data generated by vehicle sensors (e.g., cameras) for an intelligent and near-real-time response.
Edge computing is considered a promising solution in vehicular networks to fulfill the requirement. Vehicles constitute a collaborative computing platform and can jointly conduct AI learning tasks to optimize performance.However, due to privacy issues, drivers may not allow their vehicles to share raw sensor data with other vehicles.
To tackle this problem, Google has advocated a new kind of privacy-preserving edge learning as Federated Learning (FL). In this lecture, we will give a usage scenario to elaborate on how edge intelligence is adopted for connected vehicles and present the development of our edge-based mobile video platform, named "OmniEyes," to support timely video analytics for cars. The platform collects live street videos and converts them, using AI technologies, to various location-based information for real-time task executions and long-term statistical analytics via connected mobile cameras.
We will present how FL aids OmniEyes in preserving user privacy while maintaining AI model accuracy. Specifically, we are interested in the effects of limited labeled data and Non-IID (Non-Identically Independently Distributed) data in FL.
We will also discuss the vulnerability of the FL framework and some defense methods against privacy leakage and security threats.
