Speech Title: From Wireless Sensor Networks to Digital Twins

Abstract: The developments in various areas of technology such as processors, wireless communication systems, sensors and actuators are driving the transformation of former research concepts into real technical solutions. In the wide-ranging field of communication and networked systems, two concepts continue to grow together, namely the classic wireless sensor network (WSN) and the more recent idea of digital twins. The Internet of Things (IoT) amalgamates these formerly separate fields into a single concept.
In the future, emerging technologies and concepts like quantum computers, analog computers, cube-sats, 6G mobile communications will provide even more computational power and higher communication capacities at the same time, so that demanding AI approaches will be integrated at the core and at the edge of the Internet.
In this talk, we will show how these areas are converging, develop their requirements, and give examples from our lab.

Biography: Mesut Güneş is chair professor for »Communication and Networked Systems« (ComSys) at the Faculty of Computer Science, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (OVGU), Germany, since October 2016. He received an MSc equivalent diploma in Computer Science in 1998 and a PhD in 2004, both from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. From 2004 to 2005, he was a research fellow at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), Berkeley, USA. He was a professor for Distributed Embedded Systems at Freie University Berlin (FUB), Germany between August 2007 and April 2014. From May 2014 to September 2016, he was a professor for Communication and Networked Systems at University of Münster (WWU), Germany. His research interests include wireless and mobile communication systems, internet of things (IoT), wired and wireless computer networks particularly wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, and mobile ad-hoc networks. He is involved in several national and international research projects in the mentioned areas.
