However, learning new technical skills is like riding a bike, cannot be learned by reading about it. NECINA Lab program is focused on that very premise -learning by doing.
Computer vision gives eyes to computers. It has been the most active subfield of machine learning. It takes advantage of the recent machine learning breakthroughs and advances. In turn, most of the matured machine learning models and algorithms are in computer vision applications.

Lane detection is such a fundamental basis for autonomous driving, we're going to learn how to implement the lane detection by using from openCV to neural network.

We're going to build a lane detection application through the session, please prepare the following before the session.

Python3
Pycharm

NECINA Lab is going to initiate a series of projects that crosses different areas, such as machine learning, blockchain, edge computing and etc. All the projects are led by the lab members, by joining and contributing to the project, here's what you'll gain through the project:

  • Deep understanding of the technology that you're eager to learn by turning the ideas demo, even products.
  • Working with the talents that shares the same interests with you.
  • Leading the project that you're most interested in.
  • Monthly offline meetups, and more frequently online interaction to communicate and share







5G Conference Recap - 10/19

































New England's China Information Network Association's "5G Technology Conference" began with current President Harry Gao offering opening remarks. Wufu Chen providing the keynote speech. Other sessions include NECINA Board Member and PTC Vice President Ben Tao's Fireside Chat with M/C Venture Partner Brian Clark on "5G Trends and Investment Landscape". Vice President of Parallel Wireless, Yang Cao spoke about "5G Technology and IoT development ". Red Hat's CTO, Huamin Chen talked about " Introduction of key developments in 5G, IoT, and MEC ".


In the Keynote speech, Wufu Chen, the founding president of NECINA, told the audience that 5G technology will lead another paradigm shift in networking industry. However, due to the need for massive number of baseband to support its operation, the development and deployment of 5G technology will be a gradual process. Countless business opportunities for 5G networks that target specific needs will emerge.

5G is the next generation of cellular networks. Beginning in 2019, 5G services are being launched everywhere. People are expecting 5G to be much faster than 4G and its average download speed should be 1GB per second. However, the 5G service launched, such as by Verizon in Rhode Island, did not give people the impression of lightning speed, low latency and super data processing capability that 5G promised.Wufu Chen said that 5G technology will allow artificial intelligence to perform to its extreme in a closed environment. Activities that use real-time computing of big data, such as autonomous driving, deep machine learning, etc. could be realized.


Chen Wufu believes the Internet industry is entering another paradigm shift, including computing speed, storage capacity, network availability, intelligent Internet of Things (IOTs), security, and virtual computing, storage, Network and terminal equipment, etc. But most importantly, artificial intelligence with big data machine learning capabilities has replaced a large part of the human brain function, which is more subversive than the industrial revolution that replaced manpower.

To support these multiple functions, the 5G architecture must change dramatically. Due to the high data rate and the physics of signal transmission that shortens the distance, the number of base stations have to be increased significantly. To avoid out of control costs, the base station functions should be divided into several levels to allow sharing of valuable base station processing resources.Wufu Chen believes that in the foreseeable future, people should not expect homogenous 5G networks, because the cost is too high to be practical. Conversely, there will be specific 5G networks developed to meet different needs.


In the Q&A session, Wufu Chen pointed out the startup opportunities that will come along with the emergence of 5G technology development will include RU Antenna array technologies with beam forming, DU technology and its management, CU with slicing, End to end applications adaptation layer, Edge computing, Small cell applications, 5G and Wifi 6G integration, Wireless local loop, Industrial 4.0 applications, etc.


Wufu Chen himself is currently helping a friend in raising a fund to invest and support 5G-related startups.

什么是 5G?
第五代移动通信技术是最新一代蜂窝移动通信技术。从2019年开始,5G将在全球范围内部署。借助最先进的技术和现代研究,5G能够提供比当前4G连接更快的连接速度,预计平均下载速度为1GBps。尽管速度的显着提高是5G技术的显着特征,但其影响远不只是速度,它还提供了广泛的创新性变化,例如物联网,5G在其中充当基础设施,使快速传输大量数据成为可能,让世界更加紧密相连。

5G的主要性能
5G具有多种性能,主要包括:

更高的数据速率—— 5G网络的数据传输速率远远高于4G,据说比先前的4G LTE蜂窝网络快100倍。这意味着可以在5G网络上不到10秒的时间内下载完整的高清电影。

较低的网络延迟——使用手机及其他设备时感受到的网络延迟更少。4G网络下的延迟一般为40-50毫秒,5G的响应时间低于1毫秒,几乎察觉不到。

更大的容量——从互联汽车和IoT(物联网)设备,再到VR,5G能够一次性更好地应对许多高需求应用。

为什么要关心5G发展?
5G是当下人们讨论的焦点,且在未来十年内都将成为发展趋势。

5G力压各种各样的媒体技术,成为目前最热门的话题之一,世界各地的人们都在讨论它。公众已经适应了网络及移动传播技术的快速发展。4G存在了十多年,其发展也到了急需突破的时候。此外,由于中美之间的贸易战,从事5G技术研发的华为也被推到了风口浪尖。5G被认为是中国迈向世界甚至领先世界的可能性产业。

一项新技术时通常伴随着反对的声音,正是这些争议引起人们的关注。不论这是下一个骗局,还是大卫•科波菲尔(David Copperfield)的魔术,这些谈话都很可能会引起其他人的兴趣。然而,基于有限的信息,谣言经常散布。许多讨论更多只是闲聊,但并未触及其核心。许多基本元素通常会被大家忽略,例如:

5G和4G之间的根本区别是什么?只是速度的提高吗?
从3G到4G其创新性并没有那么显著,那么5G能成为真正的技术创新吗?
5G将对我们每个个人产生什么影响?
5G真正部署和使用后,哪家公司将从中受益?会不会有新的创新公司登场,撼动技术行业?
中国5G技术的发展如何?它会从众多竞争对手中脱颖而出吗?
5G时代的网络安全趋势将会如何?

What is 5G?
5G technology is about next-generation cellular network. Starting in 2019, 5G is being launched across the whole world. With the cutting-edge technology and modern research, 5G are able to offer connections that are multitudes faster than current 4G connections. It is expected to have an average download speed of 1GBps. Although the dramatic speed improvement is an outstanding feature of 5G technology, its impact goes far beyond just speed, providing a wide range of innovative changes such as Internet of Things, where 5G acts as the infrastructure to make transporting large amount of data available and hence a more connected world.

Key Features of 5G


  • Faster Speed - 5G is said to be much faster than 4G and some are saying like 100 times faster. This would mean the ability to download a full HD movie in under 10 seconds on a 5G network

  • Lower Latency - We'll see much less delay or lag when we're using our phones and other devices. With 4G networks, latency is typically around 40-50 milliseconds. With 5G it should be 1 millisecond or less, which is undetectable to the user.

  • Greater Capacity - 5G will be able to cope better with many high-demand applications all at once - from connected cars and IoT (Internet of Things) devices to VR.



Why Do You Need to Care About 5G?

5G as one of the hottest topics out there have overwhelmed various kinds of technology media and it is being discussed at every corner by all kinds of people in the world. Public has been getting used to the lightening development of Network and Mobile Communication technology. 4G has been around for more than 10 years, it is time for a breakthrough. Besides, thanks to the trade war between US and China, Huawei, who does research and development of 5G technology, has been pushed to the cusp of general opinion. With regarding to that, 5G has been considered as a possible industry for China to step ahead of the world, or even lead the world.
