Gal Morgenstern, a PhD student from Ben Gurion University, and Dr. Levent Gürgen, CEO of Kentyou received support from the competitive NGI Explorers program to visit and conduct research at WiMNet lab at Columbia University during the summer and fall of 2021.
During his visit Gal has been focusing on the research project “Graph-based power system state estimation subsequent to cyber-attack detection” which builds on his previous work and WiMNet lab’s research in the area of power grid resilience. Specifically, he has been leveraging tools from the fields of graph signal processing and estimation after selection to design estimation methodologies that will enable a better integration for existing and future cyber security methods in power systems.
More details can be found in the video below and in the Ben Gurion University news item (in Hebrew).
During his visit Levent has been focusing on the project “Experimenting an edge-computing based AI approach for safe and efficient intersections in urban areas” which builds on Kentyou’s strength, WiMNet lab’s research in the area of learning in networks and the access to COSMOS testbed. The project is motivated by the fact that road accidents involving pedestrians, in particular at intersections, are a major problem and that intersections have also an important role in the overall traffic flow management in an urban context. The project has been focusing on the application of IoT, AI, and edge/cloud computing in the design of smart intersections. More details can be found in the video below.
