Title: Learning-based Performance Monitoring for Multiple Parameters in Optical Communications Channels

Abstract: In recent years, machine learning has come to the forefront as a promising technology to aid in multiple-parameter performance monitoring for optical communications channels. In this talk, we will introduce CNN-based techniques to effectively monitor multiple system performance parameters of optical channels using eye diagram measurements. Experimental results demonstrate this method achieves a prediction accuracy >98% when tasked with identifying the modulation format (QPSK, 8-QAM, or 16-QAM), as well as the optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR), roll-off factor (ROF), and timing skew for 32 GBd coherent channels. For PAM-based intensity-modulation direct detection (IMDD) channel eye-diagram-based CNN method maintain>97% identification accuracy for 432 classes under different combinations of probabilistic shaping (PS), ROF, baud rate, OSNR, and chromatic dispersion (CD) by each modulation format. Furthermore, we undertake on an extensive comparison of ResNet-18, MobileNetV3 and EfficientNetV2. Our designed VGG-based model of reduced layers, alongside the lightweight MobileNetV3, demonstrates enhanced cost-effectiveness while maintaining high accuracy.

Title: Low-Visibility Enhancement and Beyond

Abstract: The captured visible-light images inevitably suffer from the color distortion, contrast reduction, or loss of fine details under severe weather conditions (such as haze, low-lightness, rain, and snow). The quality-degraded visual information will lead to the limited perceptual accuracy and range, resulting in the increased navigation risk for intelligent marine vehicles. To suppress the influences of severe imaging conditions on navigation safety, this talk will introduce the specific-purpose and general-purpose low-visibility enhancement methods to improve the visual perception for marine surface vehicles under different weather scenarios. In addition, the asynchronous trajectory matching-based multimodal maritime data fusion method will be introduced to promote the maritime situational awareness.
