Dina Katabi is the Andrew & Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and a co-founder of Emerald Innovations Inc. She is a MacArthur Fellow, a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, the Director of the center for wireless networks and mobile computing at MIT. In this keynote, she will present sensing technologies that track people's movements and gait based purely on the radio signals that bounce off their bodies. They can further monitor a person's breathing, heartbeats, and sleep quality remotely without requiring any physical contact with the human body. They operate by transmitting a low-power wireless signal and analyzing its reflections using machine learning models. She will show results from using these sensors for remote health monitoring of patients with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and COVID-19. She envisions that such technologies can enable truly smart homes that learn people's habits and passively monitor their vital signs to detect health problems and improve overall health and well-being.Speaker Bio
Dina Katabi is the Andrew & Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and a co-founder of Emerald Innovations Inc. She is a MacArthur Fellow, a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, and the Director of the center for wireless networks and mobile computing at MIT. Dr. Katabi is the inventor of the Emerald radio wave sensor to conduct in-home clinical trials using contactless monitoring of physiological signals. Her technical interests span digital health, mobile systems, wireless sensing, and machine learning. She develops new technologies, models, and systems that provide non-invasive health monitoring, enable smart homes, improve WiFi and cellular performance, and deliver new applications that are not feasible given today's technologies. Dr. Katabi received her Ph.D. and MS degrees from MIT in 2003 and 1999, and her Bachelor of Science from Damascus University in 1995. She was recognized with multiple prestigious awards, including the ACM Prize in Computing, the ACM Grace Murray Hopper Award, two SIGCOMM Test of Time Awards, a Sloan Fellowship, the IEEE William R. Bennett Prize, and multiple best paper awards. Several start-ups have been spun out of Katabi's lab, such as PiCharging and Emerald Innovations.
