IPNSIG Presents: Recent Firsts in DTN Research—a webinar presentation by Dr. Lara Suzuki (Google)

Date: December 10, 2021

Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST

Your Presenter: Dr. Lara Suzuki

Professor Dr Larissa Suzuki (EUR ING BSc MPhil PhD CEng FRSA FIET AFHEA IntPE) is a computer scientist, engineer, inventor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Her career includes over 16 years working in engineering. She is currently the Data and AI Practice Lead at Google Cloud, and works with Google internet evangelist Dr Vint Cerf at Nasa with ESA and Jaxa engineers, and academics developing the Interplanetary Internet. 

Her career in engineering started at the age of 16. At the age of 21 I founded her first business, and at age of 22 she became a University Lecturer teaching in BSc in Computer Science and in MBA programs. Dr Suzuki has contributed to the advancement of many fields of engineering, including smart cities, AI and Machine Learning, Interplanetary Internet, Emerging Technologies (e.g. Mixed Reality, IoT), and computing applied to medicine (cancer diagnosis), and operations research.

Her previous career experiences includes senior appointments such as Director of Product Management at Oracle, Head of Data Science at Founders4Schools/Workfinder, Senior Project Manager at London Government, TfL and other work experiences at European Commission, ARUP, IBM, University Labs (UCL, MIT, Lancaster, USP), Smar, Bank of Brazil.

Her continuing academic work is as Associate Professor and guest Lecturer at University College London, University of Quebec and University of Oxford. 

Dr Suzuki has received numerous awards, grants and recognitions from the Royal Academy of Engineering, MIT, Intel, Google, ACM, IET, Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation, Microsoft Research, EPSRC, among many others for my contributions to industry and international science.

She’s published several research papers in academic journals, books and conferences, is a frequent Keynote, conference and panel speaker. She currently serves as a member of the Search and Nominations committee of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Your Moderator: Vint Cerf

Vint is Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist
with Google

At Google, Vint Cerf contributes to global policy and business development and continued spread of the Internet. Widely known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. He has served in executive positions at the Internet Society, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the American Registry for Internet Numbers, MCI, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and on the faculty of Stanford University. Vint Cerf sat on the US National Science Board and is a Visiting Scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Cerf is a Foreign Member of the Royal Society and Swedish Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the IEEE, ACM, American Association for the advancement of Science, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, British Computer Society, Worshipful Companies of Information Technologists and Stationers and is a member of the National Academies of Engineering and Science. Cerf is a recipient of numerous awards and commendations in connection with his work on the Internet, including the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, US National Medal of Technology, the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, the Prince of Asturias Award, the Japan Prize, the Charles Stark Draper award, the ACM Turing Award, the Legion d’Honneur and 29 honorary degrees.

IPNSIG Presents: Recent Firsts in DTN Research—a webinar presentation by Dr. Lara Suzuki (Google)

Date: December 10, 2021

Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST

Admission is free, but you must register for the event. An announcement will be going up soon on ipnsig.org with a link to the registration site.

Vint Cerf will introduce Dr. Suzuki and moderate a short question and answer session following the presentation.

IPNSIG member Dr. Lara Suzuki has been working on a number of firsts in Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN). These include:

  • First time connecting multiple clouds via DTN
  • First time connecting clouds and loT devices and microcontrollers using multiple protocol implementations (MOTT, uD3TN, ION)
  • First time streaming video via multicasting over DTN
  • First time using DTN with Kubernetes Engine Service
  • First time performing federated queries over DTN on multiple clouds

Lara will be discussing the research above and also providing 14 Functioning Demos in a multi-cloud and multi-protocol environment. These demos include examples of AI and Machine Learning on multiple distributions of DTN.

In addition to obvious applications to space exploration, this work will also be foundational in scaling terrestrial implementations of DTN networks that will allow realistic testing of network management and network security functions.

Speaker and moderator bios will be published soon on ipnsig.org.

Speaker Bio for Communicating Over Extreme Distances

Dr. Don M. Boroson is a Laboratory Fellow in the Communication Systems Division of MIT Lincoln Laboratory. He has had a long career there with a focus, since the mid-1980s, on space-based laser communications systems.  He has experience in many facets of this exciting field, from mathematical analyses of phenomena and system performance, to invention of novel subsystems, to devising complete system architectures.  He has also led teams developing a wide range of relevant technologies, as well as designing, building, and fielding end-to-end systems.

Dr. Boroson was Lincoln’s lead lasercom engineer for the GeoLITE program, which, in 2001, became the world’s first successful space-based, high-rate lasercom system.  He served as the lead system engineer on NASA’s Mars Laser Communications Demonstration program, which ended up not flying because of the 2005 cancellation of the larger satellite it was to be carried on, but which devised many concepts and architectures that are now considered standard for Deep Space lasercom systems.

He was then Principal Investigator and Lincoln Program Manager for NASA’s Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration which, in 2013, became the world’s first Moon-to-Earth lasercom system, and which also set a number of other records including being the first truly error-free space-to-ground laser communication system, to being the highest rate duplex Moon-to-Earth communication system of any sort, to being the world’s longest lasercom system to date.

Dr. Boroson holds undergraduate and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University.
