Title:
Substation Cyber Security Standards and the IT/OT merge
Date:
July 23rd
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Round Table Pizza
Richland, WA
Abstract:

There are currently two cyber security standards that support Utility systems - NERC CIP and the lesser known IEC 62443 (ISA 99).  These were created to provide a framework to design, integrate and run cybersecurity defensive systems and training for substation personnel.

To complicate matters, your traditional IT engineer has no knowledge of any of the standards or any of the typical day to day operations of an electric substation. Many new IT professionals do not understand the communications protocols and specialized IP based (and non IP) equipment used in the Utility space.

We will discuss how these topics are merging within the Electric Utility (and other Industrial verticals) space.

Title:
How Neural Networks are used in Medical Imaging
Date:
July 23rd
6:30 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
Nvidia Buliding E
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Topic 1: Image Quality Assessment and Enhancement of Fetal Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging using Convolutional Neural Networks

(Sayeri Lala)

Fetal Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) complements Ultrasound in diagnosing brain pathologies. Despite the utility of fetal brain MRI, the substantial, rapid, and non-periodic nature of fetal motion can severely degrade image quality, often requiring several repeat acquisitions in the clinic.

To improve scan efficiency and diagnostic quality, we investigated Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to perform rapid image quality assessment and enhancement. In a retrospective study, we demonstrated that a CNN for image quality assessment achieves good performance, and observed from saliency maps that the classifier learns relevant criteria. We also showed that on retrospectively undersampled data, a CNN based architecture produces higher quality images compared to traditional reconstruction algorithms. The fast evaluation and reconstruction times of the CNNs suggests their potential to be used during the scan to monitor and enhance image quality.

Topic 2: Deep learning and GAN enable 4x faster scans for clinical radiology (MR, PET and more) (Enhao Gong)

Abstract: 

In this talk, Dr. Gong will introduce the research and technology development at Stanford and Subtle Medical on AI-powered medical imaging reconstruction and enhancement. Subtle Medical develops AI/Deep Learning software solution that recently gains FDA clearance and enables faster & safer radiology exams. For faster PET and MRI exams, deep learning algorithms are used to replace the conventional iterative optimization based algorithm. Using ResNet-based recurrent structure and generative adversarial network (GAN) based adversarial loss, the model successfully reconstructs images from low-quality into high-quality with significantly better signal-to-noise ratio and resolution information. Results from clinical partners and deployment sites such as Hoag Hospital and UCSF demonstrate the improvement of clinical workflow and diagnostic quality. The AI inference in deployment is further accelerated with industry frameworks such as NVIDIA tensorRT and Intel OpenVINO. The solutions are currently in clinical usage and commercialization, providing immediate and quantifiable values of AI to hospitals and imaging centers.

In further research work, task-driven GAN and cycle-GAN are used to further improve the performance of DL-based medical image enhancement, demonstrating superior performance for more extreme application of ultra-low-dose PET and 1min-MR scan that will disrupt how radiology is used in healthcare.

Title:
Can GaN RF and Millimeter-Wave Technology Be Linear and Efficient?
Date:
July 23rd
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
889
Newbury Park, CA
Abstract:

RF communications utilizes complex modulation schemes that require amplifier linearity. As amplifier operating frequency moves into the millimeter wave (mm-wave) range, the power added efficiency becomes also important to save the system prime power. As for 5G applications, high efficiency and linearity of amplifiers are required to support complex waveforms with high peak-to-average ratio (PAPR) and large instantaneous bandwidth. Recently, CMOS-based 28 GHz power amplifiers demonstrated 40% peak power-added efficiency (PAE) at 18.9 dBm saturated output power using 45 nm n-type CMOS SOI technology.

GaN HEMTs have a high breakdown voltage that offers high output impedance and power density per input capacitance over GaAs PHEMTs or CMOS. Thus, over the last decade, various GaN RF amplifiers are utilized for both commercial and defense applications. In this talk, we will present recent change in GaN RF and mm-wave technology for linearity and efficiency.

Title:
Energy Conversion for a Sustainable Future Revived Role of Power and Energy
Date:

Abstract:
http://sites.ieee.org/scv-mag/event/energy-conversion-for-a-sustainable-future-revived-role-of-power-and-energy/

Abstract

Energy sustainability is arguably one of the most critical challenges for a sustainable future. With predictions showing future scarcity and/or higher degree of extraction difficulty of traditional sources of energy for example coal, oil and natural gas, the shift to sustainable clean sources of energy is a must. Another key reason is the increasing detrimental impact of using fossil fuels. Over the last few decades, there has been serious effort to replace mechanical and hydraulic systems with electrical systems. This effort also includes replacing fixed-speed and old electrical drives with higher performance variable-speed drives. This is mainly due to the higher reliability, efficiency and robustness of electrical systems. This trend of “more electric” systems could be seen across a wide range of applications. These include traction, aerospace, actuation, mining, oil & gas, and industrial applications as examples. This push for electrification posed a lot of challenges to develop electrical systems that meet the demanding requirements of the various applications including harsh environments, high power density, high efficiency and fault tolerance in safety-critical applications. At the heart of the electrification effort is the development of advanced electrical machines and drives. This presentation will provide an overview of the various applications where electrification is taking place. The presentation will focus on electrical machines and drives that have been developed or are currently under development. The presentation will also cover some general trends in electrical machines and potential areas of research.  One of the keys enabling technologies that will be discussed are advanced magnetic materials and their potential impact on advanced electrical machines.

Title:
IEEE PELS Chapter Meeting - Economics of Rooftop Solar
Date:
July 24th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Building 6
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

With the ever-increasing concerns regarding the carbon footprint of the electricity grid, local and federal policymakers incentivized the integration of renewable energy resources, which led to their tremendous expansion during recent years. Solar rooftops are one of heavily incentivized distributed renewable energy resources, which are the option to consider for many electricity customers. In this talk, we will review the economics of installing solar rooftops given the local electricity rates and continuously declining installment cost. A discussion will be provided to make the best decision regarding the installment of solar rooftops. In addition, the importance of considering a more holistic approach toward the problem, including energy storage devices, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency procedures will be revealed. The economics of the net metering (NEM) programs for customers and utilities will be investigated along with some suggestion to design a more efficient paradigm for grid integration of distributed energy resources. Finally, we will further examine the impact of those solar rooftops on the operation and planning characteristics of the electricity distribution network.

Title:
IEEE–OC EMBS Chapter Presents “Advances in Deep Learning for Medical Imaging”
Date:
July 29th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
15500 Sand Canyon Ave
Irvine, CA
Abstract:

Despite the growing popularity of deep learning neural networks for various medical imaging applications, the vast majority of algorithms to date represent early proof-of-concept designs that will require a degree of evolution before achieving practical clinical utility. In this talk, we explore several different ways in which the current generation of deep learning applications can be advanced including:

(1) Reformulating the question: in medicine, there are often times more than one way to ask the same question---how do we reformulate a task in a way that both maximizes clinical utility and also best leverages the strength of various deep learning algorithms?

(2) Customizing deep learning algorithms: what are the unique technical challenges posed by medical imaging data and how we design custom deep learning architectures to account for them?

(3) Clinical implementation: what are some practical experiences learned from implementing deep learning tools in the clinical setting, and what are some regulatory hurdles that will need to be considered?

Title:
Comminications Society San Francisco Meeting
Date:
July 31st
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Spaces Works
San Francisco, CA
Abstract:

One of the most important features in 5G cellular communications is the super high bandwidth efficiency (BWE bps/Hz). The talk first presents how BWE increases from SU SISO (1-2G), to MIMO (3-4G) and to MU MIMO (4-5G). Then it explains how MU MIMO allows multiple users to communicate at the same time and in the same bandwidth using the subspace method. The DL transmits in the null space (NS) of its interference space and UL receives in the left NS of its interference space, so that there are no MU interference for both DL and UL. Since the dim of the NS for transmitting and receiving, which determines the number of the allowable data streams for each user, is determined by the number of transmit antennas at the BS, this method is practical. Then the talk presents simulation results on the performance and capacity of this subspace MU MIMO. The talk also compares this subspace MU MIMO with the massive antenna MU MIMO (proposed into 5G cellular standard) in terms of the performance and complexity. Finally the talk gives an example on how to upgrade the data rate of 300Mbps for the LTE system to 5G data rate of 10Gbps using the presented MU MIMO method without changing the LTE cellular infrastructure.

Title:
Robust Control of Bipedal Locomotion: An H-Infinity Approach
Date:
August 15th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
10401 Roselle Street
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

The study of mechanical legged locomotion has been motivated by its potential use as means of locomotion in rough terrains, but in particular, the interest arises from diverse sociological and commercial interests, ranging from the desire to replace humans in hazardous occupations (de-mining, nuclear power plant inspection, military interventions, etc.), to the restoration of motion in the disabled. For practical implementation, good mechanical design and good modeling, play a very important role in achieving good performance. However, in real world applications bipedal robots are subject to many sources of uncertainty during walking; these could include a push from a human, an unexpected gust of wind, geometric perturbations of terrain height, or parametric uncertainties of non-modeled friction forces. For these reasons, the design of feedback control systems, capable of attenuating the effect of these uncertainties, is critical to achieve the desired walking gait.

 

This presentation deals with the applicability of the H infinity control technique to two different humanoid robots: the 32 degrees-of-freedom biped robot ROMEO, of Aldebaran Robotics; and the 2D planar biped RABBIT, housed in LAG, the Automatic Control Laboratory of Grenoble. Results, challenges, and state of the art are discussed.
