Title:
Economic Thinking of Communication Networks
Date:
July 17th
2:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Cory Hall
Berkeley, CA
Abstract:

Today’s communication networks are highly complex, carry heterogeneous traffic in diverse environments, and are often owned by multiple profit-making entities. To successfully maintain, optimize, and upgrade such large distributed networks, it is important to design new economic incentive mechanisms as well as develop new technologies. The market deregulation of the telecommunication industry in many countries makes such economic consideration even more urgent, as there are often conflicting goals between the regulators and the commercial operators. We will first illustrate how economics can help us better understand the networking industry reality, predict user behaviors, envision new network services, and provide policy recommendations. Then we will focus on the case study of incentive mechanisms for user-provided networks (UPNs). UPNs is a new communication paradigm, which enables users to improve their communications experiences by exploiting the diverse communication needs and resources of other users. The success of UPNs, however, relies on carefully designed incentive mechanisms that effectively encourage users’ voluntary participations and cooperations. We will introduce a new paradigm of cooperative video streaming based on the concept of UPN, where mobile users crowdsource their Internet connectivities and adaptively choose video downloading sequences and streaming qualities. We will introduce a multi-dimensional auction framework, which effectively incentivizes users to cooperate in a distributed fashion. 
Title:
Technical Tour of Snohomish County PUD Energy Storage System
Date:
July 18th
1:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
2320 California Street
Everett, WA
Abstract:

Summary: The PUD has installed the first two battery systems as part of a multi-year program aimed at transforming the marketplace and how utilities manage grid operations. These battery storage systems are the first to be built using the cutting-edge Modular Energy Storage Architecture (MESA). The first set of lithium batteries is located at a utility substation near the PUD’s operations center. A second system, a set of vanadium flow batteries, was installed in early 2017. The installations are designed to improve reliability and the integration of renewable energy sources, which are rapidly growing in the Pacific Northwest. The utility is managing its energy storage projects with an Energy Storage Optimizer (ESO), a software platform that runs in its control center and maximizes the economics of its projects by matching energy assets to the most valuable mix of options on a day-ahead, hour-ahead and real-time basis.

Visit Requirements: The energy storage system is located in a substation. Attendees are required to wear hard hats (provided by SNOPUD) and hiking boot type shoes (closed toe with ankle support). There will be a safety briefing provided before entering the substation.

Attendance is limited to 16 people. Please RSVP.

Light refreshments will be provided prior to the tour.

Title:
IEEE OC Computer Society & OCACM Presentation Meeting "Bringing Blockchain to Global Enterprise"
Date:
July 18th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Knobbe Martens
Irvine, CA
Abstract:
Event Details

One of the great illusions of the digital age is that financial transactions and supply chains are able to take place and be tracked in real-time. In reality, while a million wire transfers shoot back and forth between two banks in the course of a day, the money itself moves only in single massive net transfers. Invoices take weeks to process. Shipment and supply chain tracking is notoriously unreliable. We live and work in an ocean of old data. That's about to change with blockchain, which makes possible transactions that are truly real-time, personalized, and cryptographically secure. In this talk, LedgerDomain CEO Ben Taylor walks you through some of the exciting use cases for enterprise blockchain – from banks to pharmaceuticals to electronics – and gives you a look at a running enterprise-level blockchain console.


Speaker Bio

Ben Taylor is the founder and CEO of blockchain company LedgerDomain. A double MIT graduate (where he got his start on a PDP-10), Ben spent a quarter of a century in the trenches on Wall Street before striking out to change how global enterprise does business. LedgerDomain’s blockchain solutions help today’s leaders bring real-time, personalized, and secure transactions to their communities and industries.

Title:
Energy Efficient Computing in Nanoscale CMOS
Date:
July 19th
2:45 PM (2.2 hours)
Location:
Q auditorium
San Diego, , CA
Abstract:

Topic info

Future computing systems spanning exascale supercomputers to wearable devices demand orders of magnitude improvements in energy efficiency while providing desired performance. The system-on-chip (SoC) designs need to span a wide range of performance and power across diverse platforms and workloads. The designs must achieve robust near-threshold-voltage (NTV) operation in nanoscale CMOS process while supporting a wide voltage-frequency operating range with minimal impact on die cost. We will discuss circuit and design technologies to overcome the challenges posed by device parameter variations, supply noises, temperature excursions, aging-induced degradations, workload and activity changes, and reliability considerations. The major pillars of energy-efficient SoC designs are: (1) circuit/design optimizations for fine-grain multi-voltage & wide dynamic range, (2) fine-grain on-die power delivery & management, (3) dynamic adaptation & reconfiguration, (4) dynamic on-die error detection & correction, and (5) efficient interconnects.

IEEE OC Computer Society Presentation Meeting "What Makes Expert Software Designers Successful?"
Date:
July 23rd

Location:
Knobbe Martens
Irvine, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:
Abstract

Blockchain. AI/machine learning. Security. Cloud. While these are today’s topics, they may not be tomorrow’s. In a landscape where technologies and infrastructures change orders of magnitude faster than personnel, one thing remains of constant importance: the ability of developers to be great designers.

Much goes into being a great designer: knowing the domain inside and out, understanding design thinking, and, yes, being intimately familiar with the technology at hand. Crucially important, however, is the ability to effectively keep a steady mind and balance multiple perspectives in a world of uncertainty, constant change, and competing demands on the design under consideration.

What exactly sets expert software designers apart, and what makes them have enduring design success regardless of the technology or infrastructure du jour, is the topic of this talk. Based upon decades of observations, conversations, interviews, and empirical studies of software developers ‘in action’ designing, we will present key insights into their thought and decision-making processes, use and non-use of tools and notations, reliance on colleagues, and more.

Speaker 

André van der Hoek is a programmer at heart, who thrives on talking to and working with software designers and developers to create new tools that help them be more effective and efficient. He is a Professor of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine, and heads the Software Design and Collaboration Laboratory, which focuses on understanding and advancing the roles of design, collaboration, and education in software engineering.

André van der Hoek is co-author of 'Software Design Decoded: 66 Ways How Experts Think' and co-editor of 'Studying Professional Software Design: a Human-Centric Look at Design Work', two unique books that detail the expert practices of professional software designers.

Abstract:

An active noise-shaping successive-approximation-register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter is described. Instead of binary-weighted capacitors, it uses two equal-valued capacitors as the embedded digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Thus, the capacitance spread in the DAC is much smaller than that of the conventional binary-weighted capacitor array, and the mismatcherror can be greatly reduced. The circuit provides first-order noise shaping, which can improve the ADC’s linearity even for a small oversampling ratio. Also, the proposed architecture uses a monotonic approximation procedure, which requires fewer conversion steps than for a conventional SAR ADCs. The ADC was fabricated in 0.18 um CMOS technology. For a 2 kHz signal bandwidth, it achieved a 78.8 dB SNDR. It consumes 74.2 mW power from a 1.5 V power supply. The performance can be drastically improved by introducing noise mitigation schemes and higher-order noise shaping.

Title:
P7001 Test
Date:
July 27th
7:30 AM (2 days)
Location:
Bristol, ENG
Abstract:

A key concern over autonomous systems (AS) is that their operation must be transparent to a wide range of stakeholders, for different reasons. (i) For users, transparency is important because it builds trust in the system, by providing a simple way for the user to understand what the system is doing and why. If we take a care robot as an example, transparency means the user can quickly understand what the robot might do in different circumstances, or if the robot should do anything unexpected, the user should be able to ask the robot 'why did you just do that?'. (ii) For validation and certification of an AS transparency is important because it exposes the system's processes for scrutiny. (iii) If accidents occur, the AS will need to be transparent to an accident investigator; the internal process that led to the accident need to be traceable. Following an accident (iv) lawyers or other expert witnesses, who may be required to give evidence, require transparency to inform their evidence. And (v) for disruptive technologies, such as driverless cars, a certain level of transparency to wider society is needed in order to build public confidence in the technology. For designers, the standard will provide a guide for self-assessing transparency during development and suggest mechanisms for improving transparency (for instance the need for secure storage of sensor and internal state data, comparable to a flight data recorder or black box).

Title:
Generative Adversarial Network and its Applications to Human Language Processing
Date:
July 31st
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
2485 Augustine Dr, , CA
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Abstract:

Generative adversarial network (GAN) is a new idea for training models, in which a generator and a discriminator compete against each other to improve the generation quality. Recently, GAN has shown amazing results in image generation, but the applications of GAN on text and speech processing are still limited. In this talk, I will demonstrate the applications of GAN on unsupervised abstractive summarization and sentiment controllable chat-bot. I will also talk about the research directions towards unsupervised speech recognition by GAN.

Abstract:

Recently, many experts in academia and industry have been strongly advocating the concept of Massive MIMO for application in 4G and 5G systems. While the push for larger base station antenna aperture is probably the right idea for many systems, there are important subtleties in the Massive MIMO concept, which make its practical application far from straightforward. These include HW complexity, channel estimation challenges, signal coherency issues, radio chain to antenna mapping, and multi-band designs. This talk will discuss the main types of Massive MIMO systems pointing out their benefits and limitations for various RAN systems and frequency bands. This talk will also present field trial results for Blue Danube Massive MIMO products operating in mid-band spectrum.

IEEE Consultants’ Network of San Diego

Topic: Collaborative Robots
Speaker: Dylan Shanahan, Universal Robots

 

Industry 4.0 and Collaborative Robots, or CoBots, are changing the landscape of manufacturing floors around the world. Universal Robot’s Danish robots are democratizing robotics and bringing manufacturing back to the US. Designed to be used alongside human workers, these robots are used without the need of specialized guarding that traditional robots require. This helps to shrink the overall space a robotic cell needs, allows the robot to be moved to different locations to perform different tasks, and overall allows a company to be flexible in their deployment of robotics. CoBots from Universal Robots are also designed for programming and use by non-programmers, allowing users to easily and effectively utilize robotic functions in their everyday operations.

 

This talk will briefly describe Collaborative Robots as market disruptors as well as how the robotics industry is adapting to this technology. This talk will also describe the changes in technology that allow for the use of Collaborative Robotics, how they’re being used today, and will involve a technical demo showcasing the Universal Robots easy programming and safety functions. After a brief Q&A, the attendees will then be able to program and interact with the robot.
