About ComSoc

The aim of this Emerging Technology Initiative (ETI) is to foster research and innovation surrounding the use of machine learning (ML) for the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers for all types of communication systems, such as wireless, optical, satellite, and molecular. We provide a list of Best Readings in MLC for newcomers and organize conference workshops, tracks, sessions, industry symposia, tutorials, summer schools, data science competitions, as well as special issues in journals. We aim to establish common data sets and related benchmarks and invite authors to open-source their code for reproducible research. We maintain a blog where members can write articles, opinions, perspectives or present their research in an accessible way.

The Strange, Strange World of Sub Wavelength Signal Manipulation: How Meta Materials Can Change Wireless Communications

Much of how we look at communications theory today is based on the assumption that the communications signal rides on top of a nice regular sinusoid that is easily removed to provide a linear complex baseband equivalent. But as we run out of good ideas to improve current wireless modem technology, the quest for new signal processing has taken us, like ant man, into not the quantum, but the sub lambda world of meta materials. Andrea, our guide to this strange landscape where refraction and reciprocity amongst other basic physical properties, simply refuse to behave themselves, has been a leader in this field for many years now and provides some fascinating insights into what is, and may be, possible for the future of communications. Your comments as always are most welcome.
