AI Lab

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab is committed to pioneering and conducting scientific research in the field of AI, as well as applying AI to significantly address the emerging challenges in various smart applications, such as security and privacy, Internet-of-Things (IoT) with 5G, edge computing, and others.

The current and future research projects include, but are not limited to:

  • AI for Security and Privacy
    • Machine learning for anomaly detection
    • Privacy-preserving machine learning
  • Trustworthy and Robust AI
    • AI adversarial offense and attacks
    • Countermeasure examples in machine learning
  • AI for Edge Computing
    • Cyber Analytics for IoT in 5G
  • Fundamental AI research
    • Theoretical Machine Learning
    • Mathematical optimization, operations research
    • Repository on useable datasets
  • Ethical AI / AI ethics research

The current objectives of AI Lab are:

  • To actively seek external grants and funds in the field of AI and its emerging applications
  • To pursue hypothesis-driven research activities in the AI research communities
  • To contribute original, innovative, and high-quality research projects
  • To establish partnership and to extend outreach activities with national and regional AI organizations

We are actively seeking supports from the National Science Foundation and the South of South Dakota. Our research findings have been published in prestigious journals and conferences, such as IEEE Transactions in Network Science and Engineering, IEEE Network, IEEE ICC, IEEE Globecom, and IEEE INFOCOM workshop.
