Neural Augmentation for Wireless Communication with Max Welling

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Max Welling, Vice President of Technologies at Qualcomm Netherlands, and Professor at the University of Amsterdam.

In case you missed it, Max joined us last year to discuss his work on Gauge Equivariant CNNs and Generative Models–the 2nd most popular episode of 2019.

In this conversation, we explore the concept and Max’s work in neural augmentation, and how it’s being deployed for channel tracking and other applications. We also discuss their current work on federated learning and incorporating the technology on devices to give users more control over the privacy of their personal data. Max also shares his thoughts on quantum mechanics and the future of quantum neural networks for chip design.

Thanks to our sponsor
