Their research programs will help revolutionize several key sectors of the Canadian economy. For example:
- Professor Falk is developing technology to improve machine intelligence by making them aware not only of their surroundings, but also of their users’ emotional and cognitive states.
- Professor Le’s research is focused on the development of wireless access technologies that significantly increase the capacity of wireless networks and create a high-speed mobile ecosystem able to guarantee the bandwidth and service quality for wireless applications running on the fifth-generation and beyond wireless systems.
- Professor Maier is exploring the potential of integrated cloud computing and FiWi (Fiber-Wireless) networks and the crucial role they will play in ushering in the Tactile Internet era, with a special focus on robotic services.
