An exciting new technology, described by the one who inventedit This is the first book dedicated to cognitive radio, a promisingnew technology that is poised to revolutionize thetelecommunications industry with increased wireless flexibility.Cognitive radio technology integrates computational intelligenceinto software-defined radio for embedded intelligent agents thatadapt to RF environments and user needs. Using this technology,users can more fully exploit the radio spectrum and servicesavailable from wireless connectivity. For example, an attempt tosend a 10MB e-mail in a zone where carrier charges are high mightcause a cognitive radio to alert its user and suggest waiting untilgetting to the office to use the LAN instead. Cognitive RadioArchitecture examines an "ideal cognitive radio" that featuresautonomous machine learning, computer vision, and spoken or writtenlanguage perception. The author of this exciting new book is the inventor of thetechnology and a leader in the field. Following his step-by-stepintroduction, readers can start building aware/adaptive radios andthen make steps towards cognitive radio. After an introduction toadaptive, aware, and cognitive radio, the author develops threemajor themes in three sections: Foundations Radio Competence User Domain Competence The book makes the design principles of cognitive radio moreaccessible to students of teleinformatics, as well as to wirelesscommunications systems developers. It therefore embraces thepractice of cognitive radio as well as the theory. In particular,the publication develops a cognitive architecture that integratesdisparate disciplines, including autonomous machine learning,computer vision, and language perception technologies. Anaccompanying CD-ROM contains the Java source code and compiledclass files for applications developed in the book. In addition,for the convenience of the reader, Web resources introducing keyconcepts such as speech applications programmer interfaces (APIs)are included. Although still five to ten years away from full deployment,telecommunications giants and research labs around the world arealready dedicating R&D to this new technology.Telecommunications engineers as well as advanced undergraduate andgraduate students can learn the promising possibilities of thisinnovative technology from the one who invented it. Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials arenot included as part of eBook file.
