Title:
SusTech Talk: Making ESG and SDG Standards Work! Review of Successful Strategies to Achieve Goals and Become a Sustainability Leader!
Date:
June 28th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

SusTech talks are monthly, leading to SusTech in April 2023.

ESG and SDG have evolved into a confusing set of measures and reporting standards.  What exists today are competing standards for sustainability reporting.  There are numerous definitions, scorecards, and "sustainability" experts offering the right pathway to reaching the sustainability goals.  IEEE is supporting further development of Recommended Practices that will build on the existing P7010-2020 Standards and move forward a Roadmap to understanding and developing Action Plans that will RESULT in achieving the ESG/SDG goals, supporting ongoing innovation, and advancing the organization to meet the new challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

This session will present the assessment of current progress in meeting the Sustainability goals.  It will go further and report on the critical assessment that is identifying the barriers to progress and provide a better understanding of the multi-industry efforts needed to successfully transition to REAL SUSTAINABILITY.  It will present proposed strategies based on the excellent work of IEEE's Sustainability Committee, under the direction of Rudi Schubert, and in defining the new Corporate Social Responsibility to advance humanity through technology.

 The United Nations created the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) that cover the wide scope of 17 categories of areas of interest, climate, health, education, poverty, industry, etc.,  This is what created the bridge from an aspirational climate change goals with the broader business interest.  Now I will answer the ESG - Environmental, Social, Governmental goals.  This is the broader impact the business has in building sustainable communities.  This is the core from which public companies have been compelled to include in annual Corporate Reports, by investors, disclosure on potential environmental and financial risks from these factors.  That created the multiple disclosure standards and reporting metrics.

Title:
Flexible Coding for Distributed Systems
Date:
June 28th
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
The Doubletree Club - Orange County Airport
Santa Ana, CA
Abstract:

In this talk, flexible coding is presented for the ubiquitous distributed systems. Facing the fact that the failures are unpredictable in distributed storage, a framework for flexible codes to achieve the optimal latency of accessing information is proposed. Instead of accessing a fixed number of nodes as in a conventional code, a flexible code allows one to recover the entire information from a flexible number of storage nodes, and use all the available nodes efficiently. Moreover, flexible coding in distributed matrix multiplication for data analytics is presented. The proposed constructions allow a master node to efficiently obtain the computation results from a flexible number of available servers in the presence of unknown failures. Given the storage capacity of the servers, the computation load is optimized, leading to the reduction of the computing latency.

Title:
Virtual Distinguished Lecture - Communication Efficient Privacy-Preserving Distributed Optimization
Date:
June 29th
7:00 AM (1.3 hours)
Abstract:

Your local chapters of AESS, SPS, and OES are joining together to enhance your local San Diego technical community.

Privacy issues and communication costs are both major concerns in distributed optimization in networks. There is often a tradeoff between them because encryption methods used for privacy-preservation often introduce significant communication overhead. In this talk, we discuss a quantization-based approach to achieve both communication efficiency and privacy-preserving in the context of distributed optimization. By deploying an adaptive differential quantization scheme, we allow each node in the network to achieve the optimum solution with low communication costs while keeping its private data unrevealed. The proposed approach is general and can be applied in various distributed optimization methods, such as dual ascent and methods based on operator splitting (PDMM and ADMM). We consider two widely used adversary models, passive and eavesdropping, and investigate the properties of the proposed approach using different applications and demonstrate its superior performance compared to existing privacy-preserving approaches in terms of privacy, accuracy, and communication cost.

This virtual event has been organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society Information and Forensics Security Technical Committee (SPS-IFS-TC) and fits well with the technical interests of the IEEE Aerospace & Electronics Systems Society Cyber Technical Panel.

Fuzzy Loss Functions for Generative Adversarial Neural Network

Generative Adversarial neural Networks (GAN) are very popular for medical image analysis. The paper presents an innovative fuzzy loss function for the GAN in the domain of image analysis. The GAN architecture presented here uses two convolutional neural networks, one of which is a generator and the other is a discriminator. Besides the loss function, the training algorithm is also presented in the paper. The proposed approach is generic and can be used for many domains pertaining to medical image analysis and diagnosing. The proposed work with the modified loss function is experimented on the Covid-19 image set. The results achieved are discussed in brief. In the end, the paper presents limitations and future enhancements possible based on the work.

Applied Data Science in Education

Learning analytics (LA) is a growing research area, which aims at selecting, analyzing and reporting student data (in their interaction with the online learning environment), finding patterns in student behavior, displaying relevant information in suggestive formats; the end goal is the prediction of student performance, the optimization of the educational platform and the implementation of personalized interventions. The topic is highly interdisciplinary, including machine learning techniques, educational data mining, statistical analysis, social network analysis, natural language processing, but also knowledge from learning sciences, pedagogy and sociology.

Despite its increasing popularity, LA has been applied less in the context of social media-based environments; hence in this talk we focus especially on research in social learning analytics area. In particular, we explore academic performance predictors and the relationships between students’ learning styles and their social media use; we also investigate students’ collaboration patterns and the community of inquiry supported by social media tools. Four research directions are tackled: analytics dashboards, predictive analytics, social network analytics and discourse analytics. As far as analysis techniques are concerned, we apply various approaches, such as: classification, regression, clustering and PCA algorithms, textual complexity analysis, social network analysis techniques, content analysis based on Community of Inquiry. We thus address the “trinity” of methodological approaches: i) network analysis (representing actor-actor / social relations); ii) process-oriented analysis (based on action logs and pattern detection); iii) content-oriented analysis (based on learner created artefacts); hence a more comprehensive learning analytics perspective is provided.

Next Generation Artificial Intelligence and Energy Sustainability

The industry is on a mission to capture the business value that comes with the Next Generation Artificial Intelligence in the context of Industry 5.0 and Energy 5.0 as regarding the provision of renewable energy production facilities. This has greatly increased the need to address the cyber risk landscape with a secure, vigilant, and resilient response and system in place. This marriage of algorithms, processes, and ingenuity will enable humans and machines work hand-in-hand utilising human-centric design solutions in collaboration with human resources to enable sustainable, personalized and autonomous manufacturing through enterprise social networks. This talk will analyse how AI could engender better and more informed decision-making during crisis management scenarios. Furthermore, we shall elaborate how Industry 5.0 actively encourages and enhances the relationship between humans and robots in a cyber-physical domain and in the field of energy consumption, while also relying on advanced five-sense and hologram-based communications.

Deep Learning for Melodic Frameworks

Audio signals that appeal to the ear and create melody usually confirm to a structural framework.

Title: On Asymptotic Linear Convergence of Projected Gradient Descent for Constrained Least Squares

Abstract: Many recent problems in signal processing and machine learning such as compressed sensing, image restoration, matrix/tensor recovery, and non-negative matrix factorization can be cast as constrained optimization. Projected gradient descent is a simple yet efficient method for solving such constrained optimization problems. Local convergence analysis furthers our understanding of its asymptotic behavior near the solution, offering sharper bounds on the convergence rate compared to global convergence analysis. However, local guarantees often appear scattered in problem-specific areas of machine learning and signal processing. This manuscript presents a unified framework for the local convergence analysis of projected gradient descent in the context of constrained least squares. The proposed analysis offers insights into pivotal local convergence properties such as the conditions for linear convergence, the region of convergence, the exact asymptotic rate of convergence, and the bound on the number of iterations needed to reach a certain level of accuracy. To demonstrate the applicability of the proposed approach, we present a recipe for the convergence analysis of projected gradient descent and demonstrate it via a beginning-to-end application of the recipe on four fundamental problems, namely, linear equality-constrained least squares, sparse recovery, least squares with the unit norm constraint, and matrix completion.

Speaker bio: Trung Vu received the B.S. degree in Computer Science from Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Hanoi, Vietnam, in 2014. He has been working toward the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science since 2016 at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, USA. His current research interests include both theory and practice of scalable optimization methods for machine learning and signal processing

Title:
IEEE Smart Cities Rio
Date:
July 15th
7:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Over the last few years, the city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, has been heavily using the information and communication technology to bring the government closer to the citizens under the umbrella of its Smart City Plan. It has adopted solutions that are helping the city to become more inclusive and to provide better quality of life. The basis for the development of the Smart City Plan for Rio de Janeiro was the expansion of the local government’s telecommunications network, which has intensified the presence of the government throughout the city, and a digital inclusion program, an important indicator that tracks the population’s access to new technologies particularly in disadvantage communities across the city. The Smart City Plan consists of initiatives and projects that integrate the strategic planning of the local government and further strengthen the citizens’ relationship with the city and the government. Among the smart services offered by the municipal government are the monitoring and operation of the city’s operations center (COR), which enhances integration between agencies and utilities, supporting the local government’s decision-making process. A series of structural interventions in the transport and mobility area is in progress in Rio de Janeiro. They include, for example, the construction of exclusive transport corridors and the integration of various means of transportation with the launch of the Unified Ticket of Rio de Janeiro.

Title:
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.
