The Event

Massive MIMO technology employs many antennas and massive computational power to serve many users concurrently, reusing the same spectrum spatially. About a decade ago, researchers from Rice University, Bell Labs, and Yale University reported the world's first massive MIMO base station prototype, Argos, which helped elevate it to an important technology for 5G. Recently the third generation of Argos has been adopted as a key component by the US Platform for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program and made commercially available.

On August 5, Lin Zhong, Professor of Computer Science at Yale University, will share their experience of building three generations of Argos, their ongoing effort toward commoditizing future wireless infrastructures, and the (surprising) link between wireless and quantum computing.
