RIAIoT Call for Challenging Problems (Oct 2021)

21 Oct 2021


Mechanism for Allocation of Funding

The Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence of Things (RIAIoT) conducts problem-driven multidisciplinary research. Periodically, RIAIoT issues Call-for-Problems identifying major challenging problems in AIoT applications and the technical fields. Then, Call-for-Solutions will be issued to seek end-to-end solutions leveraging the combined expertise of members.

The mechanism of allocating funding for projects is as follows:

  • RIAIoT periodically issues Call-for-Problems and holds regular meetings to discuss and identify grand challenging problems.
  • RIAIoT issues Call-for-Solutions to invite project team leaders and members (may recruit non-members if necessary).
  • Project teams submit proposals with a budget plan.
  • RIAIoT management committee sends the proposals to experts for review.
  • RIAIoT management committee holds meetings to evaluate the proposals against the award criteria and select qualified proposals for funding.

Call for Challenging Problems in the Major Research Areas

In this Call-for-Problems, RIAIoT invites applications from interdisciplinary researchers to identify the problems with grand challenges in the major research areas as follows:

  • AIoT smart sensors and devices.
  • Future AIoT network connections.
  • Future edge for AIoT and distributed intelligence.
  • AIoT robotics.
  • AIoT security, privacy, and blockchain-based AIoT data sharing.
  • AIoT for strategically important applications in infrastructure and construction, health, connected vehicles, smart logistics, etc.
  • Other AIoT-related areas of strategic, academic and/or applied importance.

Please prepare and send your proposal to Shan JIANG ( using the following outline:

  1. Title
  2. Background
  3. Problem Specification
  4. Challenges of Solving the Problem
  5. Interdisciplinary Nature of the Problem
  6. Benefits and Impacts of Solving the Problem.
