Professor Wyglinski's work focuses on devising new, reliable, and robust wireless communications using artificial intelligence and machine learning.Given society's growing reliance on wireless connectivity, it is important that wireless communications and networking systems are dependable and can co-exist with each other. His research into novel wireless communication systems will impact society in how they connect with each other and their surrounding environment, including the Internet of Things, smart cities, next-generation transportation systems, and eHealth. He says 5G communications will allow organizations to maintain critical operations in a safe and virtual manner during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Alex Wyglinski, electric and computer engineering department spoke with KCBS radio out of San Francisco, CA about how self-driving cars can continue to evolve after being involved in an accident, helping the field increase its overall safety. When asked about a specific fender bender, Wyglinski says it’s “a learning opportunity for the computer in this vehicle which has never seen this explicit case before, so what will do is take the most conservative the most safe outcome.”
