Title:
Limitations of AI Systems with Respect to Explainability, Interpretability, Fairness, Ethics, and Causality
Date:
August 17th
7:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Today there are more than fifty domains in which AI systems perform at least as well as humans, and there are hundreds more where they are helping humans in making better decisions. However, current AI systems suffer from several debilitating limitations. For example, even the well-trained deep learning networks are often not robust and can recognize random images having perturbed patterns with over 99% confidence (such as a king penguin or a starfish). Medical doctors make mistakes too but by and large, we trust them. Unfortunately, trust mainly develops over time, but transparency and predictability can help.
Whereas predictability usually requires that these systems do not falter with small perturbations, transparency requires openness, proper explanations, and useful interpretations. The latter requirements are particularly daunting since most AI algorithms act as “black-boxes” and provide no explanations. This lack of “explainability” can be a stumbling block in adopting these systems especially in the fields of health care, legal and criminal, security, defense and military, product liability, and financial services.
In this talk, we first discuss the need for explainable AI (XAI) and application domains that generally require XAI. Since explainability may not be easy to come by for current AI systems, we discuss various research efforts for achieving interpretable, causal, fair, and ethical AI systems.

Title:
New Hardware Market Directions with 5G and Edge Computing
Date:
August 15th
9:00 AM (1.2 hours)
Abstract:

The equilibrium of wireless connectivity and hardware capabilities has been upended by the arrival of 5G and enabling technologies like edge computing and serverless architecture.

The question "what will you do with 5G?" is usually met with blank stares -- and for good reason. Our existing mobile devices were made for a 4G world, and OEM manufacturers are slowly waking up to that fact.

New technologies powered by next-gen wireless connectivity are poised to spark a revolution with respect to how we interact with hardware -- and how we'll use it interact with each other.

The fact is this: we are now living in an entirely new ecosystem that uses new infrastructure resources to deliver experiences we never thought possible… or even thought of at all.

In this webinar, we will look beyond the hype of 5G and examine how new hardware packaging will intersect with connectivity and emerging interface methods (like Metaverse and Web3).

Title:
IEEE Smart Cites Gothenburg Sweden
Date:
August 12th
7:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Join us for an interactive session on IEEE Smart Cities Gothenburg Sweden. Why is Gothenburg Smart? Do they have smart people, smart transporation, smart governance, smart buildings, and/or Smart Health? Find out today where Gothenburg ranks in the Top Smart Cities.

Smart cities, even if "powered by people," are falling short of not fundamentally reshaping American cities.  Therefore, Americans are being under-served by their cities and towns and being denied a better quality of life.  Why is this?  And what can we do to solve this?  My view is that the shortcomings include the difficulty of transforming existing systems and infrastructure, fragmentation of urban markets, out of date procurement practices, and technology versus benefits / outcomes determining the solutions being sold in the marketplace.  I will explore some solutions but will be equally interested in your ideas on solutions. Also important in Smart Cities is urban design.

Title:
Glass-based Quantum Photonic Packaging at Fraunhofer IZM
Date:
August 11th
8:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Experience from chip-level integration, known from electronics and “classical” integrated photonics, may provide guidelines and solutions for quantum devices in communication and sensing. However, monolithic photonic platforms do not meet the stringent demands of most quantum applications. Integration of active opto-electronic components, such as light sources, photodiodes and modulators, can complete the spectrum of required building blocks. We have developed integration technologies and packaging solutions for quantum systems built on years of experience with glass-based electro-optic circuit boards (EOCBs) developed for data communication, with the structuring and stacking of thin glasses for micro-photonic assembling. Experience gathered with glass-based EOCBs is being extended at Fraunhofer IZM into the quantum domain by extending the single-mode optical guidance into the visible and NIR spectral range through innovative light-matter coupling interfaces, and by further development of hermetic glass joints for packaging of hybrid quantum systems.

Title:
Neural Networks: More Than You Ever Wanted to Know
Date:
August 10th
7:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Scottsdale, AZ
Abstract:

We keep hearing about neural networks but what are they? We hear about them in the news, read about them in magazine articles, and are told about them when we have a problem. But what are they and are they really the cause? We hear about them as AI but are they really intelligent?

This presentation covers what they are, the biological origins, the early research, how they work, the attempts to model them in computers, and what is really going on. Both positive and negative aspects will be pointed out as well as some of where they are in use.

The subject matter could easily be a one or two semester course in graduate school. In that light, this presentation will cover the high points and invite the student to further investigate the subject.

XBAW Technology – Enabling Next Generation Resonators and Filter Solutions from MHz to GHz range applications
Date:
July 27th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Akoustis uses pioneering next-generation materials science to address market requirements for improved RF filters. Bulk acoustic wave (BAW) is the technology of choice for RF signal filtering in the range of 2 – 7 GHz. BAW technology enables small filter dimensions, leading to compact systems, improved design tradeoffs and lowered cost. High quality-factor (Q) of BAW resonators enables improved performance, notably lower passband loss and steeper filter skirts. 

In this talk, we showcase the capability and performance of resonators and filter solutions created using XBAW, a novel manufacturing process, capable of producing state-of-the-art BAW RF resonators and filters for WiFi, 5G infrastructure, 5G mobile, and defense/general applications. Using this XBAW wafer manufacturing process and a variety of advanced high purity piezoelectric AlN and AlScN thin films, RF filter solutions are created to address needed improvements in bandwidth, operating frequency and output power compared to incumbent BAW technology deployed today.

Further, we present the capability of the XBAW wafer manufacturing platform to extend into the MHz frequency spectrum, by demonstrating high-performance Micro-Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) resonators, using various acoustic vibrational modes with improved AlN and AlScN piezoelectric materials. Finally, a brief introduction to XBAW Foundry services is presented, including BAW and MEMS devices offered by the XBAW process.

Trust and Privacy of Today's Online Networks
Date:
July 25th
5:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

As we move further into the big data era, people are motivated in numerous ways to proactively generate, share and exchange diverse digital contents online every day. While the increasing amount of information greatly facilitates people’s decision making, it also brings great challenges. For example, driven by the huge profits behind the big data economy, malicious attacks are emerging rapidly to mislead normal users’ decision-making process by providing carefully crafted false information. In addition, retrieving a tremendous amount of user private information has become a popular attack target. This talk will discuss the security, trust and privacy issues in online social networks, the trend and challenges, particularly focusing on several sample attacks.

Title:
On the commutation properties of finite convolution and differential operators
Date:
July 24th
1:30 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Spectral properties of many finite convolution integral operators have been understood by finding differential operators that commute with them. We compile a complete list of such commuting pairs, extending previous work to complex-valued and non self-adjoint operators. Further, we introduce a new kind of commutation relation, called sesqui-commutation, that also has implications for the spectral properties of the integral operator. In this case as well a complete list of sequi-commuting pairs of integral and differential operators is obtained.

Title:
Visualizing Framing Changes of Links Through Skein Modules
Date:
July 24th
1:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

The notion of a skein module was introduced in 1987 by Józef H. Przytycki as a generalization of polynomial link invariants in S^3 to arbitrary 3-manifolds. In this talk we give a historical introduction of skein modules, formally define this structure, and subsequently, we connect skein modules with framing changes of links in 3-manifolds. In particular, we focus on the framing skein module.

Title:
Quasi-decimal representation of integer (and real) numbers without the digit 0 and (–) sign
Date:
July 24th
10:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

First, the positional (quasi-decimal) system of natural numbers without the digit 0 will be discussed. The digit X will be used, not as a substitute for 0, but for the sake of decency of the system and simplicity of correspondence. The system for natural numbers is “more” bijective than the normal system (001 = 01 = 1). On the basis of the written subtraction algorithm, the representation of the number 0 will be constructed, and in the next step, the number (–1). As a consequence, there will be a bijective system of representation of integers. The system will correctly perform multiplication, addition and subtraction. Finally, the extension of the system to real numbers will be given, which will have an ambiguous reprezentasions of even 0 itself. It will not be decided whether the ambiguity is an equivalence class of the equality relation or whether it means system inconsistency. The quasi-decimal system resembles 10-adic numbers, but in the author's intention it is a construction of real numbers, with particular emphasis on negative numbers. The motivation is to develop the formalism for the possible construction of hyperreal numbers. The presentation will not contain formal definitions and statements, but will be based on numerous examples.

Title:
Dissecting innate immunity responses to viral infection at the single-cell level
Date:
July 24th
9:00 AM (2 days)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Recognition of viral RNA initiates a signaling cascade culminating in synthesis of interferons (IFNs). Secreted IFNs, by activation of transcription factors of STAT family in surrounding cells, prompt them to prepare for viral infection. Viruses, in turn, convey non-structural proteins to impede the innate immune response. Based on results obtained using single-cell techniques, we proposed an agent (single cell)-based, stochastic, computational model and used it to explain how a infected population of cells can stratify into distinct subpopulations. The winning cells, in response to viral RNA, produce IFNβ (warning yet not infected cells), loosing cells express viral proteins that inhibit innate immune signaling. The proposed model reproduces the experimentally observed complex spatial patterns of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) spread and dichotomous cell responses.

Title:
Skein modules: A braid theoretic approach
Date:
July 24th
8:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Skein modules were introduced independently by Przytycki and Turaev as generalizations of knot polynomials in S^3 to knot polynomials in arbitrary 3-manifolds. They are quotients of free modules over isotopy classes of links in 3-manifolds by properly chosen local (skein) relations. The Kauffman bracket skein module of a 3-manifold M, KBSM(M), is equivalent to the independent Jones polynomials for links in M up to regular isotopy. Skein modules have become very important algebraic tools in the study of 3-manifolds, since they detect geometric and topological properties of them, as for example the presence of non-separating 2-spheres and tori. The algebraic counterpart construction of the classical Kauffman bracket is the Temperley-Lieb algebra together with a unique Markov trace. Through the pioneering work of V.F.R. Jones, this algebra related knot theory to statistical mechanics, topological quantum field theories and the construction of quantum invariants for 3-manifolds (works of Witten, Reshetikhin-Turaev, Lickorish, etc). However, computing the KBSM of a 3-manifold is known to be very hard. In this talk we develop a braid theoretic approach for computing KBSM of c.c.o. 3-manifolds and we focus on the case of the lens spaces L(p, q), via the generalized Temperley-Lieb algebra of type B, TL_{1,n}.

Title:
Extreme Khovanov homology of 4-braids in polynomial time
Date:
July 24th
7:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Computing Khovanov homology of links is NP-hard. Thus finding homotopy type of its geometric realization is also NP-hard. We conjecture that for braid diagrams of fixed number of strings finding homotopy type of geometric realization (and its homology) has polynomial time complexity with respect to the number of crossings. The conjecture is wild open but its solution would have big impact on understanding of Khovanov homology. As a step toward a solution of the conjecture we prove the following result (it has topological and computational flavor). First we show that the Independence Simplicial Complex (ISC), I(w) associated to 4-braid diagram w (that is geometric realization of extreme Khovanov homology) is either contractible or homotopy equivalent to a sphere, wedge of 2 spheres (possibly of different dimensions), a wedge of 3-spheres at least two of them of the same dimension, or a wedge of four spheres at least three of them of the same dimension. On the algorithmic side we prove that finding the homotopy type of I(w) can be done in polynomial time with respect to the number of crossings in w. This is joint work with Marithania Silvero.

Abstract:

Abstract:

In this talk we will explore Fomenko and Matveev's proof of Steifel's theorem (All orientable 3-manifolds are parallelizable) using knot theory. This leads to the question: For what collection of dimensions does stably parallelizable imply parallelizable? In answering this we explain why 7-manifolds are special in the context of parallelizability.

Title:
Apollonian integrality revisited
Date:
July 23rd
3:30 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Apollonian disk packing is called integral if the curvatures of the disks are integers, and super-integral, if the reduced coordinates (coordinates of the disk centers, scaled by the curvatures) are integers as well. Equivalently, if the vector representations of the disks in the Minkowski space have integral values. The question is whether all integral packings can be made super-integral. We show that it is so, and as a byproduct, new interesting discrete groups, intriguing occurrence of the Fibonacci numbers, and some other features, emerge.

Title:
Coefficients of Catalan States of Lattice Crossing
Date:
July 23rd
2:30 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Plucking polynomial of a plane rooted tree with a delay function α was introduced in 2014 by J.H.~Przytycki. As we show, this polynomial factors when α satisfies additional conditions. This result yields several consequences for coefficients C(A) of Catalan states C of an m x n-lattice crossing L(m,n) established in this paper. In particular, using earlier introduced Θ_A-state expansion, it is shown that C(A) can be found after computing C'(A) for a Catalan state C' obtained from C after cutting its removable arcs. Moreover, when C admits a local family of arcs λ that vertically factorizes C then C(A) factors into a product of coefficients of two Catalan states which depend respectively on λ and its complement in C. As an application, we give closed-form formulas for coefficients of Catalan states of L(m,3)

Title:
Tit-for-Tat Dynamics and Market Volatility
Date:
July 23rd
2:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

We consider tit-for-tat dynamics in production markets, where there is a set of n players connected via a weighted graph. Each player i can produce an eponymous good using its linear production function, given as input various amounts of goods in the system. In the tit-for-tat dynamic, each player i shares its good with its neighbors in fractions proportional to how much they helped player i's production in the last round. This dynamic has been studied before in exchange markets by Wu and Zhang. We analyze the long term behavior of the dynamic and characterize which players grow in the long term as a function of the graph structure. At a high level, we find that a player grows in the long term if and only if it has a good self loop (i.e. is productive alone) or works well with at least one other player. We also consider a generalized damped update, where the players may update their strategies with different speeds, and obtain a lower bound on their rate of growth by finding a function that gives insight into the behavior of the dynamical system.

What I have learned about knot theory
Date:
July 23rd
1:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

When considering what to say at this conference, I decided to step back and describe my journey from what I was doing in physics of superfluid helium and knot theory in my PhD towards abstract knot theory which I try to do in recent years. In the humble beginnings I was using Witten's path integrals to argue about phase transition in superfluid helium, by relating it with 2D Ising model. Then, trying to get rid of non-rigorous approach of path integrals, I tried, with Goldin and Sharp, to use Fock space approach, which has some success (at least in 2D) but it is clear that we meet a wall when trying to define a Hamiltonian in terms of creation-annihilation operators, a bit like in loop quantum gravity (where the problem is even much more pronounced). This was the deciding element in switching to pure knot theory and hoping that rigorous theory will help in doing the physics. I will tell the story, including most recent results and questions that I face in this apparently never-ending journey.

Title:
Non-existence of Bose-Einstein condensation in Bose-Hubbard model in dimensions 1 and 2
Date:
July 23rd
10:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

We apply the Bogoliubov inequality to the Bose-Hubbard model to rule out the possibility of Bose-Einstein condensation. The result holds in one and two dimensions, for any filling at any nonzero temperature and it can be considered as complementary to the analogous, classical result known for interacting bosons in a continuum. Instead of trying to generalize the Bogoliubov inequality to particular unbounded operators, as was done previously to prove the result in a continuum, we use carefully controlled finite dimensional approximations of thermal averages and prove their convergence.

Title:
Skein Modules and Chebyshev Polynomials
Date:
July 23rd
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Skein modules were introduced by Józef H. Przytycki as generalisations of all the various polynomial link invariants in the 3-sphere to arbitrary 3-manifolds. Over time, they have evolved into one of the most important objects in knot theory and quantum topology having strong ties with many fields of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, hyperbolic geometry, and the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev 3-manifold invariants, to name a few. Chebyshev polynomials are an important class of polynomials related to the sine and cosine functions, which have made surprising appearances, and have been rather indispensable, in the study of Kauffman bracket skein modules and algebras. In this talk we will discuss some of these connections between Chebyshev polynomials and skein modules and algebras.

Title:
Knotted and unknotted flexible loops settling under gravity in a viscous fluid
Date:
July 23rd
8:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Dynamics of elastic, knotted loops settling under gravity in a viscous fluid are studied numerically and experimentally. The loops are modelled as chains of beads, with harmonic stretching and bending potential energies between the consecutive beads and the consecutive bonds linking the beads. The Reynolds number is assumed to be much smaller than unity and the fluid flow obeys the Stokes equations. Hydrodynamic interactions between all the beads are described by the Rotne-Prager mobility matrices. In most cases, the trefoil and other torus knots attain rather flat, toroidal-like, horizontal structures while settling. They perform a swirling motion and a slower rotation. The basic features of the motion and shapes, determined numerically, are also detected in the experiments with closed flexible ball-chains sedimenting in a very viscous silicon oil. The dynamics of knotted and unknotted flexible loops are shown to differ significantly from each other. The results have been published as: M. L. Ekiel-Jezewska, M. Gruziel, K. Thyagarajan, G. Dietler, A. Stasiak and P. Szymczak, Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 127801 (2018) and M. Gruziel-Slomka, P. Kondratiuk, P. Szymczak and M. L. Ekiel-Jezewska, Soft Matter 15, 7262 (2019).

Topological Invariant of Manifolds in Sławianowski’s Field Theory
Date:
July 22nd
3:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Witten constructed topological invariants of manifolds by introducing actions depending only on smooth structures of the manifold without using a metric. He focused on an example of Chern-Simons’ theory on 3D manifolds. Sławianowski based his field theory on frame/coframe fields without a metric. A Witten-type topological invariant can be introduced in Sławianowski’s framework, using an integral over the reper fields. Such invariant behaves differently for group manifolds than for all others. It additionally distinguishes semi-simple Lie group manifolds from other group manifolds. Further study of this new invariant is needed, including possible generalizations to other field theories.

Title:
Elastic Moduli Determination from Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy. Osmium and Uranium Oxide
Date:
July 22nd
2:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS) is a well-established method for determination of the full tensor of elastic moduli of a solid sample in a single frequency sweep. RUS is qualitatively different from other frequency-domain techniques in that the measurements and analysis are highly redundant and sensitive to all the components of the elastic tensor. The direct problem consist of calculating resonance frequencies of an object from its density, dimensions and elastic moduli, using an energy minimization technique (a complete analytical solution does not exist). The inverse problem is more powerful and interesting, as one can go from easy-to-measure quantities (resonance frequencies) to elastic moduli. Elastic moduli are of quintessential importance for understanding fundamental properties of materials, as they relate directly to the internal energy, and they enter in the equation of state of materials. The basics of the RUS technique will be discussed, along with two case studies: (1) Osmium, a material believed to be harder than diamond, and (2) Uranium Oxide, used as nuclear fuel rods in nuclear reactors

Reconnection Number of Vortex Knots
Date:
July 22nd
1:00 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

Knotted vortices such as those produced by Kleckner and Irvine at the Frank Institute of the Univ of Chicago tend to transform by reconnection to collections of unknotted and unlinked circles. The reconnection number R(K) of an oriented knot of link K is the least number of reconnections (oriented re-smoothings) needed to unknot/unlink K. Putting this problem into the context of knot cobordism, we show, using Rasmussen’s Invariant that the reconnection number of a positive knot is equal to twice the genus of its Seifert spanning surface. In particular an (a,b) torus knot has R = (a-1)(b-1). For an arbitrary positive knot or link K, R(K) = c(K) - s(K) + 1 where c(K) is the number of crossings of K and s(K) is the number of Seifert circles of K. Examples of vortex dynamics will be illustrated.

Labeled graph framework for unique games
Date:
July 22nd
9:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

A unique game a scenario in which two players are asked to assign values a and b from a set [n] to certain randomly chosen variables x and y. Neither of the players knows which variable was chosen for the other one and they are not allowed to communicate. For each pair (x, y) of variables which may be chosen, we want the values a and b to satisfy certain constraints defined by a permutation of [n]. If the players' answers satisfy the constraints, they both win, otherwise they both lose. This type of game can be represented by a graph with permutations of [n] assigned to its edges. The properties of these labeled graphs can tell us a lot about the associated games. In particular they can be used to calculate the probability of winning certain games.

A conjecture on circle graphs and Khovanov spectrum
Date:
July 22nd
8:00 AM (0 minute)
Abstract:

Abstract:

A chord graph is the intersection graph associated to a chord diagram, which can be thought as a circle together with a finite set of chords with disjoint boundary points. In this talk we present a conjecture stating that the independence complex associated to a circle graph is homotopy equivalent to a wedge of spheres. We show some advances towards the proof of the former conjecture, providing a proof for the particular case of certain families of graphs. We will also explain how this conjecture is related to Khovanov spectrum (Khovanov homotopy type introduced by Lipshitz and Sarkar) of knots and links. This is joint work with Józef H. Przytycki.

In-situ Monitoring of Thermo-mechanical Induced Stress in ASICs and Electronic Control Units for Automotive
Date:
July 21st
8:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Current development in automotive electronics is driven by four major trends: Connectivity, Automation, Sharing and Electrification, or CASE. To fulfill the expectation of society, electronic components and systems are becoming more complex with a significant increase in functionality. All these trends create new technical challenges, such as new use-case conditions, extended usage due to driving and charging, transferring consumer-based technologies into an automotive harsh environment, etc. These challenges are consequently solved during the design and development phase of novel electronics products using the physics of failure reliability approach supported by simulations. The typical reliability approach is divided into the component-, board- and system level. Numerical simulations are used in a similar multi-stage fashion, transferring the information about loading conditions to specific testing scenarios. To fully rely on the simulation, validation of the numerical model is an important step. In this webinar, I will present an application of the piezoresistive stress sensor to monitor the stress state during different stages of reliability assessment, from component to ECU level.

Abstract:

Deep space applications are subjected to extremes in environmental/mechanical conditions and thus require robust interconnect technologies not only for L1 interconnect but also L2 interconnects. Thus, they require innovative and robust technology that can stand these extremes to guarantee the mission lifetimes and provide long-term reliability lifetimes for applications. This study was a joint study with NASA to find the suitable interconnect technology in the early phases for the sensor electronics in James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) that has been designed and deployed to provide more insight into the origins of the Universe nearly going back to few hundred million years after the Big Bang.

Event Details

Recent advances in the democratization of AI have been enabling the widespread use of generative models, causing the exponential rise of fake content. Nudification of over 680.000 women by a social bot, impersonation scams worth millions of dollars, or spreading political misinformation through synthetic politicians are just the footfall of the deep fake dystopia.

As every technology is simultaneously built with its counterpart to neutralize it, this is the perfect time to fortify our eyes with deep fake detectors. Deep fakes depend on photorealism to disable our natural detectors: we cannot simply look at a video to decide if it is real. On the other hand, this realism is not preserved in physiological, biological, and physical signals of deep fakes, yet. In this talk, I will begin with presenting our renowned FakeCatcher, which detects synthetic content in portrait videos using heart beats, as a preventive solution for the emerging threat of deep fakes. Detectors blindly utilizing deep learning are not as effective in catching fake content, as generative models keep producing formidably realistic results. My key assertion follows that such signals hidden in portrait videos can be used as an implicit descriptor of authenticity, like a generalizable watermark of humans, because they are neither spatially nor temporally preserved in deep fakes. Building robust and accurate deep detectors by exhaustively analyzing heartbeats, PPG signals, eye vergence, and gaze movements of deep fake actors reinforce our perception of reality.

Moreover, we also innovate novel models to detect the source generator of any deep fake by exploiting its heart beats to unveil residuals of different generative models. Achieving leading results over both existing datasets and our recently introduced in-the-wild dataset justifies our approaches and pioneers a new dimension in deep fake research.

This meeting will be held at the Knobbe Martens' Irvine offices. Parking validation will be provided to attendees. This will be a hybrid event supporting live streaming.

Title:
IEEE Alaska Section July Meeting - Westinghouse eVinci Micro-Reactor
Date:
July 20th
12:30 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Westinghouse is currently developing the eVinci Micro-Reactor, a next-generation, very small modular reactor for decentralized remote applications

The eVinci micro-reactor’s innovative design is a combination of space reactor technologies and 50+ years of commercial nuclear systems design, engineering and innovation. The eVinci micro-reactor aims to create competitive and resilient power with superior reliability and minimal maintenance, particularly for energy consumers in remote locations. Its small size allows for standard transportation methods and rapid, on-site deployment in contrast to large, centralized stations. The reactor core is designed to run for three or more years, eliminating the need for frequent refueling.

The key benefits of the eVinci micro-reactor are attributed to its solid core and advanced heat pipes. The heat pipes enable passive core heat extraction, allowing autonomous operation and inherent load following capabilities. These advanced technologies together make the eVinci™ micro-reactor a pseudo “solid-state” reactor with minimal moving parts.
