Speech Title: Research Trends in Business Intelligence and Analytics

Abstract: Business intelligence and analytics has emerged as an important area of study for both practitioners and researchers. It is a critical component of enterprise information systems in today's data-driven world. The business sector is expected to increase resources to focus on data science to extract knowledge. Enterprise data environments include both structured and unstructured information accumulated by entities from a large variety of sources in many different formats. There exists tremendous potential to glean key insights for business advantage and new opportunities from the vast data that is available today and new data that is being constantly generated. The talk will address the issues and processes associated with business intelligence and analytics, discuss relevant algorithms and techniques being researched, and reflect on the trends going forward.

Speech Title: Efficient and Secure Authentication Schemes for IEEE 802.11ah Networks

Abstract: IEEE 802.11ah, a specification belonging to 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) protocol family, has been recently released to support the long-range, low-power and low-rate wireless communication among smart devices used in Internet of Thing (IoT) systems. However, security requirements of the energy-constrained devices have plenty of issues different from the traditional wireless devices. It requires that the lightweight security protocols have to support low-power and low-latency as well as the long-lasting features of quantities of IoT devices. The recently released IEEE statndard, IEEE 802.11ai has specified a Fast Initial Link Setup (FILS), which is a brand-new approach aiming at establishing fast, stable and secure links among smart devices. IEEE 802.11ai could be applied to other wireless systems, such as the wireless system of IEEE 802.11ah with security enhancements. In this talk, I would address the secureity issues of IEEE 802.11ai and IEEE 802.11ah with new proposals to enhance the authentication process in the link setup procedure.
