Marilyn Wolf Biography

Marilyn Wolf is Farmer Distinguished Chair and Georgia Research Alliance
Eminient Scholarat the Georgia Institute of Technology.  She received her
BS, MS, and PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1980,
1981, and 1984, respectively.  She was with AT&T Bell Laboratories from 1984
to 1989.  She was on the faculty of Princeton University from 1989 to 2007.
Her research interests included embedded computing, embedded video and
computer vision, and VLSI systems. She has received the ASEE Terman Award
and IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Education Award. She is a Fellow of
the IEEE and ACM and an IEEE Computer Society Golden Core member.


1. Caring Analytics for Long-Term Care of People with Special Needs

Abstract
This talk describes the efforts of my research group to build
Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems to help care for people with special needs.
The term "special needs" covers a wide range of cognitive and physical
limitations. With a growing worldwide population of people with special
needs, we need to find new ways to give these people meaningful lives.
Because the special needs population covers such a wide range of conditions,
the traditional, diagnosis-driven medical approach will not scale. We have
developed activity analysis algorithms that can generate useful activity
summaries from sparse sensor data in complex environments. We have developed
clustering algorithms to aid in the analysis of activity data. We are
developing an IoT systems architecture that we will permanently install in a
smart home for people with special needs operated by a Medicaid service
provider.

2. Service-oriented architectures for cyber-physical systems

Abstract
This talk describes my research group's efforts on the design of improved
architectures for cyber-physical systems. Service-oriented architectures are
widely used in information processing and Web technologies to provide
scalable access to resources in distributed systems and extensible
applications. However, many traditional service-oriented architectures are
designed for transaction processing. In contrast, cyber-physical systems
used for real-time control require quality-of-service constraints and
graceful handling of failures to provide requested services. Our group is
developing extended service-oriented models for use in smart energy grids
and other applications. We will describe our work in service-oriented
architectures, including model-based design and simulation. We will also
describe the convergence of safety and security, traditionally two separate
disciplines, in modern cyber-physical systems.
