The research of “PoTrojan”, an innovative project of revealing the vulnerability of current AI neural network based models led by our visiting student, Minhui (Michael) Zou, received media coverage from the register. The current version of the paper can be found on arXiv. Congratulations to Minhui and team members!
The paper “Fog Computing Middleware for Distributed Cooperative Data Analytics” was accepted in the Fog World Congress 2017 (FWC 2017). Congrats to Jose!
One postdoc associate and three PhD students join our lab this fall. Welcome Fangyu Li, our new postdoc from University of Oklahoma. Welcome Zhiwei (Simon) Luo and Jiaqi (Jack) Wang, PhD students. Also welcome to Minhui (Michael) Zou who join the lab in summer 2017. Zhiwei Luo completed his bachelor degree from Wuhan University (China) at Computer Science and Technology. Jiaqi Wang received the bachelor degree in electrical engineering and the master degree focused on renewable energy generation in Zhejiang University, China.
The high school summer intern hosted by our lab, Rohan Vuppala, received the Winner award from UGA Young Dawgs program. The Winner award is the highest recognition from UGA Young Dawgs program to high school student interns in each summer.
Young Dawgs is designed to prepare high-achieving high school students for post-secondary education. Since its inception in 2008, the program has hosted more than 1000 high school participants who have served almost 115,000 internship hours in departments throughout the UGA campus and community businesses. The program operates year round. Students are juniors or seniors and must have a minimum 3.7 GPA. The vast majority of these students end up being accepted into UGA.
Rohan worked on the micromouse project, he programmed and demonstrated robot navigation within a maze designed for small robots under Dr. Song supervision and the students Maria Valero and Yang Shi.

One of the requirements of the program is that each student must do a presentation at the end of the semester. The presentations are judged by UGA staff, and UGA students using a rubric that focuses on content, presentation skills, creativity, and time. Of the 32 students participating this summer, Rohan’s presentation received one of the three “Winner Awards” thanks to the quality of the computer engineering work that he did was displayed in his presentation, the programming of the robot and his demonstration of how it worked within the maze showed his creativity as well as a basic understanding of the work he was doing in the lab.
Members of Sensorweb Research Laboratory attended and presented IoT research at IoT Showcase. The event was at TechSquare Labs in Atlanta on May 2nd.
Our lab received the President’s Interdisciplinary Seed Grant to develop Smart Cyber-Physical Systems for Controlled-Environment Agriculture. It will result in Cost-effective indoor food production through the integration of informatics and renewable energy.
The OpenFog consortium featured “Real-time Subsurface Imaging” technology as a game-changer in Energy-Civil-Environmental Industry, enabled by Fog Computing. To read the complete document click here.
Mr. Mickey A. Brown (Executive Vice President, Georgia Power), Mr. Ronny Just (Government Relations Manager at Georgia Power), Dr. Donald Leo (Dean of UGA College of Engineering), Mr. Michael Dukes (Director of Development and Alumni Relations of Engineering) visited Sensorweb Research Laboratory on March 30th.
The paper Real-time Ambient Noise Subsurface Imaging in Distributed Sensor Networks was accepted in the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2017). Congrats to Maria!
On March 9th, 2017, Dr. Song was invited to give a featured talk on fog computing in energy applications. The event was held in Atlanta at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel & Conference Center
