New communication paradigm accounts for the semantics of information
The data-intensive and timely communication needs of networked intelligent systems cannot be compared to traditional connectivity concepts of data being transferred between two or more digital devices. Today’s cyber-physical and autonomous intelligent networked systems can acquire, process and send extensive amounts of distributed real-time data. The ERC-funded SONATA project envisions a new communication paradigm that accounts for the significance and usefulness (semantics) of information being generated, processed and transmitted. The project’s key scientific challenge is to pursue the mathematical convergence between signal processing and goal-oriented information transmission by exploiting source/signal properties, process variability and semantic information attributes. This will result in a reduction of unnecessary data traffic and the associated required communication, processing and energy resources.
