Key Networking Technology Trends that are Transforming the Applications We
Use Every Day

Abstract: Today’s advancements in mobile, social, cloud, and Internet of Things are
made possible by significant advancements in various areas including wired and wireless
networking. Networking is foundational for our society, though sometimes hidden
behind the people-facing apps and devices. There are a number of transformative trends
that will change how networking is done and enable a variety of emerging and new
application areas, including interactive multi-user AR/VR, connected vehicles, new IoT
applications such as smart buildings, and dramatically improving both the security and
speed of rolling out new services. We will highlight four technology trends: (1) Intent-
Based Networking, (2) 5G cellular, (3) indoor-location- based services, and (4) machine
learning and artificial intelligence applied to networks and networked applications. We
will describe these exciting opportunities, why they are important, promising future
directions of research, and their potential impact on emerging and new application areas.

Bio: John Apostolopoulos is VP & CTO of Cisco’s Enterprise Networking business,
Cisco’s largest business, where he drives the technology and architecture direction. He
also founded Cisco’s Innovation Labs whose mission is to drive technology innovation
aligned with Cisco’s strategic directions. This covers the broad Cisco portfolio including
Internet of Things (IoT), wireless (from WiFi to emerging 5G), application-aware
networking, multimedia networking, indoor-location- based services, connected car,
machine learning applied to the aforementioned areas, and deep learning for visual
analytics. Previously, John was Lab Director for the Mobile & Immersive Experience
Lab at HP Labs, whose goal was to create compelling networked media experiences that
fundamentally change how people communicate, collaborate, socialize and entertain. The
MIX Lab conducted research on novel mobile devices and sensing, mobile client/cloud
multimedia computing, immersive environments, video & audio signal processing,
computer vision & graphics, multimedia networking, glasses-free 3D, next-generation
plastic displays, wireless, and user experience design. He is an IEEE Fellow, was named
“one of the world’s top 100 young (under 35) innovators in science and technology”
(TR100) by MIT Technology Review, and received a Certificate of Honor for
contributing to the US Digital TV Standard (Engineering Emmy Award 1997). He has
published over 100 papers, receiving several best paper awards, and has about 75 granted
US patents. John was a Consulting Associate Professor of EE at Stanford (2000-09), and
frequently gives invited lecturers at MIT. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in EECS
from MIT.
