In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, the paradigm of wireless sensing has emerged as a transformative technology, enabling us to perceive and interact with the world around us in unprecedented ways. This keynote speech will delve into the multifaceted realm of wireless sensing technologies, offering a comprehensive exploration of their diverse applications and profound impact on our lives. I will begin with Millimeter Wave Sensing, discovering how these high-frequency waves are revolutionizing our ability to sense, map, and analyze our surroundings with remarkable precision. Next, I will dive into Wi-Fi sensing, where ubiquitous Wi-Fi signals become a powerful tool for understanding human behavior, occupancy patterns, and health monitoring. Learn how this technology is turning our homes, offices, and public spaces into intelligent environments that adapt to our needs. Acoustic Sensing will unveil the fascinating world of sound-based sensing. Explore how audio signals, beyond mere communication, are harnessed to detect anomalies, monitor structural integrity, and enhance our understanding of natural environments. The keynote will also delve into sensing for activities, discovering how these technologies empower applications ranging from healthcare to sports performance monitoring. I'll explore real-world examples illustrating how wireless sensing augments human capabilities. Finally, sensing for security will spotlight how wireless technologies are instrumental in safeguarding our lives and assets.
