Abstract: In recent years, the academic community and industry have been focusing on research, proof of concepts and field trials for the new generation of wireless networks (5G), also with a look toward beyond 5G. The massive connectivity and ultra-reliable low-latency communications represent new features of such networks, which bring up major changes in the wireless ecosystem. Additionally, the evolution toward non-terrestrial networks and underwater Internet-of-Things (UIoT) is unprecedented. Security threats have been a significant concern, and this becomes even more stringent in the current wireless environment, including 5G and beyond, as well as UIoT.

This talk introduces blind signal identification, required for spectrum monitoring and threat identification among other applications. The taxonomy of signal identification method-ologies is first presented, followed by a more detailed discussion on statistical pattern recognition (a branch of machine learning) techniques. The talk concludes with future challenges posed to signal identification in the continuously evolving and exciting field of wireless networks.


Bio: Octavia A. Dobre is a Professor and Research Chair at Memorial University, Canada. Previously, she was with the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest and New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA. She was a Visiting Professor with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA and Université de Bretagne Occidentale, France, as well as a Chair of Excellence at Universidad Carlos III of Madrid, Spain. Dr. Dobre was a Royal Society Scholar and a Fulbright Scholar. Her research interests include technologies for 5G and beyond wireless, blind signal identification and parameter estimation techniques, resource allocation, as well as optical and underwater communications.

Dr. Dobre serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Communications Letters, and was an Editor of numerous prestigious journals. She has served as General Chair, Tutorial Co-Chair, and Technical Co-Chair at various conferences.
