Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) interacts with people by tightly integrating sensing, communication, and computation with human objects. IoT systems can augment human performance, illuminate the emerging socio-technological landscape, and enhance the quality of life. In recent years, the internet of “hearable” things, which goes beyond earbuds and hearing aids, is considered as the next-generation wave of the technological revolution in mobile and wearable computing, and become the first 24/7 seamless interface in smartphones, smart homes, and smart vehicles. In this talk, I will share some research experience on our recent attempts (including examples of success and failure) in exploring new hearable technologies and applications. A few philosophical questions/hypes in health and security, driven by the future hearable IoT, will be discussed, such as “Why is it difficult to hear in noisy places”, “What is the sound of your fingerprint and how does it sound?”, and “Where is the largest hospital in the world in 10 years?”.

Bio: Dr. Wenyao Xu is currently an Associate Professor of the Computer Science and Engineering Department, University at Buffalo (SUNY). His group has focused on exploring novel sensing and computing technologies to build up innovative Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems for high-impact human-technology applications in the fields of Smart Health and Cyber-Security. Results have been published in peer-reviewed top research venues across multiple disciplines, including Computer Science conferences (e.g., ACM SenSys, MobiSys, MobiCom, UbiComp, ASPLOS , ISCA, HPCA , Oakland, NDSS and CCS ), Biomedical Engineering journals (e.g., IEEE TBME , TBioCAS, and JBHI ), and Medicine journals (e.g., LANCET ). His group won the best paper awards, including MobiSys’20, MMSys’20, SenSys’19, HotMobile’18 and BHI ’17. His inventions have been filed within U.S. and internationally as patents, and have been licensed to industrial players. His research has been reported in high-impact media outlets, including the Discovery Channel, CNN , NPR, and the Wall Street Journal. Dr. Xu is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBCAS), serves the technical program committee of many academic conferences in the field of Internet of Things (e.g., MobiSys, IPSN , and INFOCOM ), and has been a TPC co-chair of 2018 IEEE Body Sensor Networks.
