With 5G cellular technologies now beginning to be deployed around the world, the research community has embarked on the pathway to define the sixth generation (6G) wireless system to be deployed in the year 2030. The market demands of 2030 and beyond will likely introduce new applications, with more stringent requirements (in terms of ultra-high reliability, capacity, energy efficiency, and low latency). In this talk, we will share about our thoughts in 6G and some of our preliminary works in this area.
Tony Q.S. Quek received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, respectively. At Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, he earned the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Currently, he is the Cheng Tsang Man Chair Professor with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). He also serves as the Acting Head of ISTD Pillar, Sector Lead for SUTD AI Program, and the Deputy Director of SUTD-ZJU IDEA. His current research topics include wireless communications and networking, big data processing, network intelligence, URLLC, and IoT.
Dr. Quek has been actively involved in organizing and chairing sessions and has served as a TPC member in numerous international conferences. He is serving as the General Chair for IEEE ICCC 2020. He is currently serving as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the Chair of IEEE VTS Technical Committee on Deep Learning for Wireless Communications as well as an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society SPCOM Technical Committee.
