ECE Seminar Series

ISTeC Distinguished Lecture in conjunction with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Computer Science Department Seminar Series

Title: Social Learning and Controlled Sensing
Speaker: Vikram Krishnamurthy
Affiliation: Professor, Cornell Tech, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cornell University
Day: Monday, February 27, 2017
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Morgan Library Event Hall

Abstract: This talk deals with the statistical signal processing and controlled sensing of interacting social sensors. Social sensors are agents that provide information about their environment (state of nature) to a social network after interaction with other agents. The talk discusses how sequential detection and fusion can be achieved in multi-agent systems that perform social learning. The talk also discusses mean eld dynamics in large scale interacting social sensing.
