SSE Weekly Colloquium | Over-the-Air Computing for Wireless Data Aggregation in B5G/6G Networks
Over-the-air Computing (AirComp) is becoming a new task-oriented solution for wireless data aggregation (WDA) by seamlessly integrating communication and computation, which is expected to have abundant applications such as distributed sensing, learning, and control. This talk will introduce the basic principles and advanced resource allocation techniques on AirComp, present its applications in federated edge learning, and discuss promising research opportunities.
