It was pleasure and a great experience to be part of IEEE Communications Society School Series at Georgia Tech Research Institute, thanks to the travel grant I received from IEEE ComSoc. The program was a captivating experience, packed with enlightening talks and engaging discussions on Next Generation Cloud Communications.
One of the highlights was the poster presentation competition, where I had the chance to showcase my work on energy-efficient AI from my ongoing PhD research at Walton/VistaMilk. The competition was fierce, but I was thrilled to receive the Best Presentation Award from IEEE ComSoc Atlanta, which added a cherry on top of the experience.
The program featured an impressive lineup of speakers who shared their insights. Topics ranged from leveraging cloud applications in design, taking technology into action for disaster relief, the latest trends in testing and measurement for wireless communications systems, to the challenges and visions for future wireless systems like 6G. The program also included an insightful tour of the Georgia Public Broadcasting studios, offering a firsthand glimpse into the world of media and communication technologies.
I was particularly intrigued by discussions about AI in wireless networks, metaverse, extended reality, and hologram-type communication challenges. These insights will undoubtedly shape my future research in the field. Moreover, the program fostered valuable networking opportunities, allowing me to connect with fellow enthusiasts and experts, which has expanded my horizons.
In a nutshell, this program, supported by IEEE ComSoc, has been an invaluable experience that broadened my knowledge and enriched my perspective on the exciting realm of communication technologies and AI.
