EECS Assistant Professor Receives $285,000 NSF Grant to Develop AI-based Networks

Taejoon Kim, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science, was awarded a $285,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) under the NSF Computer and Network Systems Core program. The proposed research, “Towards Scalable and Al-based Solutions for Beyond-5G Radio Access Networks,” aims to develop scalable AI-based algorithms for cell-free massive multiple-input multiple-output networks that enable low latency and uniformly reliable wireless services at a lower cost. The project also contributes to the development of a diverse workforce in AI and 6G wireless networks through the formation of international research teams integrating undergraduate and graduate students.

Last month, Kim received a $750,000 grant and was the PI of a $1,000,000 grant, both awarded by the NSF.
