The Road Less Taken

Selecting research topics is a crucial stage of the research process. It is often attempting to choose mainstream or hot topics even though they may not align with one's own genuine interest. In this talk, I will reflect on my journey of researching a topic that is relatively under-explored in this community. I will overview our work examining the use of light for data communication and object/behavioral sensing with a focus on two aspects. The first aspect is the minimalist nature of proposed methodologies that seek to replace invasive cameras with low-cost, small photodiodes to enable biomechanical and biophysicalogical human sensing, as well as sensing of human face-to-face interactions. The second aspect is the cross-area nature of our exploration, highlighting our work on designing self-powered gesture recognition that intersects human-computer interaction and recent endeavor exploring laser communication for underwater robotics. I will conclude by final thoughts on exploring topics that are not mainstream.

Birds of a Feather: Faculty Job Search During Recession (RSVP Below) 17:00–18:30

Moderator: Elahe Soltanaghaei

The worldwide financial downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic can potentially affect faculty hirings across universities in the coming year. To help envision future scenarios, we are organizing an interactive Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session at Mobisys’20 to discuss ‘faculty job search during recession’. Please join us on Wednesday June 17th at 5PM EST and learn from experiences of recent graduates who successfully secured a faculty position in the very last job cycle, share your concerns, and meet your peers. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions before and during the panel discussion.

Mobile Computing - A Trip Down Memory Lane with IBM’s Linux Watch and Peeking Ahead

The IBM Linux Watch debuted at LinuxWorld in August 2000, followed by Bluetooth Developers Conference 2000, CES and CeBIT in 2001, and continued till about 2004. The watch ushered many technological firsts and significantly pushed the boundary in embedded software and mobile applications. Several generations of smartphones and tablets have since changed the way we live and work beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. This talk will take us back in time and cover the origins of the Linux Watch research effort, describe some of its key innovations and achievements, and reflect on some aspects of the future it predicted correctly then and also on many concepts it completely missed. The talk will also cover more recent lessons learned and challenges faced by IBM while building and deploying a slew of enterprise grade mobile applications for multiple industries. We end with some thoughts on what the future might hold for mobile and ubiquitous computing.

Please see the Program Highlights for more information about the speaker.
