Keynote speech: Smart Protocol and Algorithm for Internet of Things
Abstract: In this talk, we consider a power-aware intelligent protocol over internet of things (IoT). Specifically, we consider a generic IoT scenario where a multimedia server provides heterogeneous applications without knowing the application’s quality of experience (QoE) model and playout period. Our objective aims at dynamically adjusting the power allocation for each application over a uncertain period to maximize the system overall mean opinion score (MOS). Note that the practical QoE model can be observed over time, but the underlying functional relationship between the power and MOS is unknown. The highlight of this talk is to develop an intelligent protocol , in which one learns the satisfaction function and optimizes power-aware user satisfaction with on-line operation. Numerical simulation results validate the efficiency of the proposed protocol.
