Abstract: An increasing number of applications require simultaneous transmission of multimedia streams to diverse users with vastly different computing and communication capabilities. While a straightforward approach is to establish an independent unicast session with each user, it can be highly inefficient when (i) the number of users is large or (ii) the content size is large. In such applications broadcast/multicast techniques can lead to significant gains. This talk will focus on error correction coding techniques over packet erasure channels under low-latency constraints.

The talk will be aimed for a broad audience and will not assume prior knowledge on Error Control Coding.

Biography: Ashish Khisti is an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto and holds a Canada Research Chair in Wireless Networks. He obtained his BASc degree from the Engineering Sciences program at the same university, and his SM and PhD degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His research interests include Network Information Theory, Physical Layer Security and Error Control Coding for Multimedia Applications. He is a recipient of the HP-IRP award, an Ontario Early Researcher Award and the Morris Joseph Levin Masterworks award from MIT. He presently serves as a Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory.
