Vincent Kimura, CEO, Smart Yields

Vincent Kimura

Talk Title: Big Data for small farming communities: A technology adoption story focusing on food safety, climate change, pest migration and labor efficiency

Abstract: Smart Yields connects farmers, agricultural researchers and their communities through crowd-sourced data gathered from a network of integrated sensors that measure everything from soil health to inputs such as water, energy and nutrients. In turn, these users tap into a vast wealth of local, regional and national knowledge to increase productivity, yield, and revenue.

Biography: Vincent Kimura traces his farming roots back to his grandfather, who first moved to Kauai from Japan to work the sugarcane fields. Born in Honolulu and raised in Asia, Vincent has worked for more than 15 years as an entrepreneur, running three startups.

Bingli Jiao, Director of Wireless Communications and Signal Processing Research Center, Peking University

Bingli Jiao

Talk Title: Co-frequency Co-time Full Duplex Networking and Its Security Issue

Abstract: Radio full duplex (FD) technique has emerged as an attractive technique capable of doubling the spectral efficiency of the half duplex.  However, applications of FD technique to mobile network can suffer from strong base station to base station (B2B) interference and that of mobile station (MS) to MS as well.  This presentation proposes a design that uses centralized base station (BS) transmit antenna and distributed BS receive antennas, each of which consists of an antennary to perform beamforming to nullify the B2B interference over the L channel.

Biography: Dr. Bingli Jiao obtained his BS and MS at Peking University, China in 1983 and 1988, and Dr. degree at University of Saarland, Germany in 1995, respectively.  He is currently working in Peking University as a full professor, director of center of wireless communication and signal processing, and a PKU director of the advanced communication joint Lab between Peking University and Princeton University.
