Mobile devices have become the horsepower of electronic industry in the past few years. During this burst period, more and more challenges have emerged regarding the usability, power consumption, security and computing efficiency of the mobile platforms. In the meantime, the presence of innovative devices and algorithms, such as the wearable devices and machine learning also provided extremely valuable research challenges and opportunities in the mobile system area.

In this talk, Dr. Xiang Chen will present his past research works mainly focusing on: (1) mobile computing acceleration for graphic and sensing system; (2) distributed mobile computing network design for machine learning based application; (3) and mobile security solution from interaction and machine learning perspectives. These works basically cover three design levels, from circuit to system and algorithms, giving a comprehensive overview of the challenges and opportunities of the mobile system development in the past few years.



Xiang Chen received his Bachelor degree from the Northeastern University (China) in 2010, and his Ph.D. degree in ECE from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. After the graduation, he joined the George Mason University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering. His research interests include low power mobile computing, distributed mobile system and mobile security technology. He used to work in the Samsung and Microsoft Research Labs for mobile system research and network development. In the past years, he has published about 40 papers in the top international conferences and journals, and received several best paper awards and nominations form the Design Automation Conference (DAC), ICCAD, and ASPDAC.
