How future internet network technology could help bring harmony


How can the internet network technology of the future help make the world a better place?

That’s the big question Brunel’s Professor Asoke Nandi was there to help global tech heavyweights nail when he opened the 2nd Global Future Network Development Summit.

Prof Nandi talked about how brain networks can inspire future internet networks in his keynote speech to kick off the talks in Nanjing, China, earlier this month.

“China is investing a lot in future networks, both in research and infrastructure,” said Prof Nandi from Electronic and Computer Engineering. “The outcomes will create a far more connected world and will ultimately affect everybody in the world.

“This is why we should be more inclusive, and work together to make a better world for everybody and to bring harmony both within a nation as well as among nations.”

Some 3,000 experts in government, telecoms, academia and tech equipment and services from China, America, Britain, Japan, Australia and elsewhere gathered in Nanjing. They were there to hear the freshest thinking about using global future networks to create a more connected, inclusive world.  

Discussions on the theme of ‘Pioneering the Future’ covered cyberspace, strengthening scientific and technological platforms, and making network and security technologies more original and industrialised.

Prof Nandi, a Distinguished Lecturer with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, works on statistical signal processing, machine learning, wireless communications, brain signal processing, gene clustering and biomedical signal processing. He was one of nine experts to officially open the Summit, which was also attended by Brunel Distributed Computer Systems’ Professor Maozhen Li and 15 Academicians from the Chinese Academy of Engineering and other countries.
