Project Description

Future mobile systems will not only offer data throughput hundreds of times higher than 4G/5G systems can provide, but will also demand strict data security. This requires radical new techniques which will better integrate the needs of the end-user into the system design.

In this PhD research, we will be investigating emerging research topic to exploit users’ social trust information in forming secure and robust mobile networks. Including the social trust makes the networks design much more complicated, which would again make traditional approaches either difficult to find the optimum scheme or complicated to implement.

To progress, we will investigate machine learning methods particularly the reinforcement learning to obtain new data transmission schemes to satisfy users’ QoS requirements in trust-aware networks.
