In distance education, students are being taught based on tutorially designed learning materials and on his/her communication with the tutors instead of instructed by the physical presence of a tutor in a teaching classroom. In the last few years, a significant growth in distance education occurred, and it is still attracting an increasing number of participants. These web-based courses are providing a great support to the learners by taking advantage of the internet and at the same time they are offering great innovative possibilities. Many different artificial intelligence, computer vision and machine learning techniques are being used to facilitate the distance education platforms. The aim of this session is to present the recent research and development works related to artificial intelligence applications that can support distance education.

Abstract: Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, open source, credit card size computer. Potential applications vary from supercomputing to the Internet of Things. The most notable feature of Raspberry Pi is its affordability. This hands-on tutorial introduces a configuration of Raspberry Pi with various cameras for computer vision applications -- a USB webcam and a dedicated camera module. We use Python and an open source library such as OpenCV and SimpleCV as the programming platform. The goal is to configure a Raspberry Pi as an IoT sensing node for various computer vision applications in a short period.
Duration: 2 hours: 1-hour tutorial + 1 hour hands-on.
Target Audiences: Scientists seeking a low-cost solution for Computer Vision framework. Participants are expected to bring in:
A laptop with a native Ubuntu OS installed and an Ether port. A USB Ether adapter should work if your laptop does not have it.
A micro SD card >=8GB.
A micro SD card reader - a USB card reader (recommended) or an adapter that works with an internal SD card reader on your laptop.
A USB webcam TO BE CONNECTED TO a Raspberry Pi.
A short CAT5/6 Ether cable to connect Raspberry Pi with your laptop.
A USB-micro USB cable and a portable power bank. Alternatively, you may feed the power from your laptop. You may share those for your smartphone in many cases.
Introduction to Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi installation and configuration as a remote sensing server (IoT node).
Simple sensing app development -- Python with a library such as OpenCV and SimpleCV.
Hackathon: a simple computer vision task (TBD).

The increasing popularity of all-wireless access has uncovered that the radio spectrum is a scarce resource. The available spectrum must accommodate various forms of wireless services, including voice and data traffic that is cumulatively increasing at an unprecedented rate. Wireless researchers around the world are continuously working hard to find the way for smart spectrum utilization. On that, non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is now recognized as a promising and potential candidate for 5G and Beyond radio access due to its superior spectral efficiency. Unlike orthogonal multiple access (OMA) techniques, such as time-division multiple access (TDMA), NOMA exploits the non-orthogonal resource allocation. The key reason for adopting NOMA in 5G owes to its ability of serving multiple users using the same time and frequency resources.
In this tutorial session, we will elaborate to talk about NOMA and its types, advancements in power-domain NOMA, uplink and downlink NOMA, resource allocation, cooperative NOMA, physical layer security, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) NOMA, and the applications of NOMA in various potential wireless communications systems. A set of research challenges and implementation issues of NOMA will be discussed such as; error propagation, implementation complexity, inter-cell interference issues, standardization activities, energy-efficiency, scalability, and carrier-aggregation issue.
This tutorial session will offer a reasonable learning opportunity to the audience in terms of understanding the NOMA schemes in the domains of 5G cellular radio access technologies. It is expected that the audience will be able to associate the dots of different co-existed technologies while they are researching and/or implementing academic/enterprise level systems and services.
Duration: 2 hours: 1/1.5-hour.
