Our research group has been working on the effective communications paradigm from both information theoretical and data-oriented dimensions.
Effective communications deals with the extent to which the meaning expressed (by the sender) and transmitted affects the receiver's conduct in the desired way. To support the 6G requirements, the importance of efficient effective communications triggers the desired effect by delivering as few bits as possible across the network.
To design and analyze effective communication protocols, we can find answers to the following fundamental questions: 1) How do we measure communication effectiveness via the time-varying actions of the receiver? 2) What is the information contained in the observed data, affecting the action of the receiver in the desired way? 3) How do we determine the shortest message to send, to ensure the desired action is taken upon reception?
