Abstract: With the phenomenal growth of excessive data traffic and the increasing number of connected devices, existing communications solutions are posing unprecedented challenges in terms of capacity, latency, heterogeneity, mobility, coverage, energy efficiency, and reliability. Given the demand for full connectivity, as part of the post 5G era, non-terrestrial and terrestrial networks integration will be a challenging mission that will necessitate redefining a multi-dimensional and fully orchestrated system in terms of sensing, communications, computing, and intelligence. In this talk, I will present non-conventional approaches to address the problems in a non-terrestrial and extreme environment, i.e., underwater. Intelligent and behavior-aware probabilistic solutions will be discussed, with the goal of achieving robust adaptation in terms of required Quality of Service and Quality of Experience to meet the demands in a variety of scenarios.
Bio: Dr. Mehdi Rahmati (IEEE Senior Member) is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Cleveland State University in Ohio. His research is in the areas of wireless communications, underwater communications, and coordination in distributed autonomous systems. He received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2020 from Rutgers University in New Jersey. He has published numerous peer-reviewed papers and has received many prestigious awards, including the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society Young Professional Award in 2022 and 2023, the best demo award at the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication, and Networking (SECON), the first prize in the 2019 IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) student competition, the best paper award at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS), and the best paper runner-up award at the 2015 ACM International Conference on Underwater Networks and Systems (WUWNet).
