Abstract
Smartphones are revolutionizing the way we communicate, work, study, socialize, play, participate in society, conduct commerce, and provide care and services. As smartphones continue to evolve with more computing power and bandwidth, with larger display, and with better user interfaces, new apps are merging for each new generation of devices. One key to smartphones’ wide adoption is its ability to connect to multiple networks. With their rich
connectivity, smartphones have become gateways to the cloud and bridges to the sensor swarm, in addition to the robust connection to other wireless handsets.
The innovations behind these amazing devices, including hardware, OS, communications, and apps, create some unique research and education opportunities. In this talk, I will share some thoughts on these opportunities, as well as discussing future trends and technical challenges of further advancement of smartphones.

Biography
Cheng received his Ph.D. in EECS from the Univ. of California, Berkeley in 1988. He worked at Bell Laboratories from 1988 to 1993 and joined the faculty at the Unive. of California, Santa Barbara in 1993 where he is now a professor in ECE. He was the founding director of UCSB’s Computer Engineering Program (1999-2002) and Chair of the ECE Department (2005-2008). He held a Visiting Professor position at Taiwan TsingHua Univ. (1999), Univ. of Tokyo, Japan (2008), and Hong Kong Univ. of Science and Technology (2012), Adjunt Professor at Beijing University,
China (2003-2005), and Chair Professor at ZheJiang Univ. China (since 2012 under the short-term 1000 talents program). His current research interests include mobile embedded systems, SoC design validation and test, and multimedia computing. He has published more than 350 technical papers, co-authored five books, supervised 28 PhD dissertations, and holds 12 U.S. Patents in these areas.
Cheng currently serves as Director for DoD/MURI Center for 3D hybrid circuits which aims at integrating CMOS with high-density memristors. He also served on the executive committee, as a research thrust leader, of the SRC/FCRP Gigascale System Research Center and was co-director of both the NSF Int’l Center of System-on-Chip and NSF Int’l Center on Design for Nanotechnologies.
Cheng, an IEEE fellow, received ten Best Paper Awards from various IEEE conferences and journals. He has also received the 2004-2005 UCSB College of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Faculty Award. He served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Design and Test of Computers (2006-2009) and was a board member of IEEE Council of Electronic Design Automation’s Board of Governors, IEEE Computer Society’s Publication Board, and working groups of International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS). He has also served as General and Program
Chair for several international conferences including 2012 IEEE International Test Conference and 2008-2011 International Symposium on VLSI Design, Automation and Test (VLSI-DAT).
