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:
July 23rd
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
1710 Automation Pkwy
San Jose, CA
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.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

More details will be posted here.

What is ValleyML.ai?

ValleyML.ai is a brand-new community (like a meetup) working with IEEE Silicon Valley AI Chapter and other AI related organizations bringing a series of regularly planned events, we plan to cover the state-of-the art advances in AI technology. Attendees for most of the workshops get IEEE Certificates for Professional Development Hours if the courses are organized by Approved Provider of IEEE Certificates. Each event would be financially sponsored and organized by a corporation or an organization working on ML/AI and ValleyML.ai would handle the technical program. For the case of paid events, IEEE /ACM Members get a discount of 25%. IEEE CS/CAS/CIS/ITSoC/RAS/SSCS and other supporting chapter Members – additional 5%.

Events sponsored by corporations or organizations may charge the attendee fees to cover the expenses associated with the event. However, the pricing is expected to be several times lower than a corporate conference. For instance, AI/ML corporate conferences would cost anywhere from 00 to 00.

We focus more on providing technical content.

Title:
Spin-Orbit Technologies: From Magnetic Memory to Terahertz Generation
Date:
August 27th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
San Jose, CA
Abstract:
http://sites.ieee.org/scv-mag/event/spin-orbit-technologies-from-magnetic-memory-to-terahertz-generation/2019 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer (one of four)Hyunsoo Yang

National University of Singapore

Spintronic devices utilize an electric current to alter the state of a magnetic material and thus find great application in magnetic memory. Over the last decade, spintronic research has focused largely on techniques based on spin-orbit coupling, such as spin-orbit torques (SOTs), to alter the magnetic state. The phenomenon of spin-orbit coupling in magnetic heterostructures was also recently used to generate terahertz emission and thus bridge the gap between spintronics and optoelectronics research.

I will introduce the basic concepts of SOTs, such as their physical origin, the effect of SOTs on a magnetic material, and how to quantitatively measure this effect [1], [2]. Next, I will discuss the latest trends in SOT research, such as the exploration of novel material systems like topological insulators and two-dimensional materials to improve operation efficiency [3]. Following this, some of the technical challenges in SOT-based magnetic memory will be highlighted. Moving forward, I will introduce the process of terahertz generation in magnetic heterostructures [4], where the spin-orbit coupling phenomenon plays a dominant role. I will discuss the details of how this terahertz emission process can be extended to novel material systems such as ferrimagnets [5] and two-dimensional materials. The final section will focus on how the terahertz generation process can be used to measure SOTs in magnetic heterostructures, thus highlighting the interrelation between terahertz generation and the SOTs, which are linked by the underlying spin-orbit coupling.

Title:
New CA Law Requires Cyber security for Ethernet Connected Equipment, Network Connected Power Relays & Power Monitoring Included
Date:
September 11th
5:30 PM (3 hours)
Location:
IEM
Fremont, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

On September 28, 2018, Governor Jerry Brown approved California Senate Bill 327, a law to regulate the security of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This law requires that the data transmitted by network connected devices be treated with similar levels of security as personally identifiable information about an individual.  This is a big deal. Power monitoring systems, power relays, and other connected devices installed in power distribution equipment will all require an appropriate cybersecurity solution.

SB 327 requires the manufacturer of any “connected device” to equip the device with “reasonable” security features to protect information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. The bill defines “connected device” to include devices or any other physical objects that can directly or indirectly connect to the internet and are assigned IP or Bluetooth addresses.

SB 327 takes effect January 1, 2020.  Specifying Engineers will need to understand the law’s requirements, and how the state plans to enforce SB 327.

How will a law that requires cybersecurity for IOT connected devices affect designs for Power distribution systems?    Join us for a discussion on SB327, and the impacts on electrical power distribution design, as well as a primer on available cybersecurity options.

 

A Tour ofThe IEM Factory is available following the presentation.   This is a great opportunity to look inside low voltage and medium voltage equipment during production.

Managing the Unmanageable: If You Are Agile, What Do Managers Do?
Date:
October 3rd
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
National Instruments
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

TEMS SCV/SF/OEB Webpage ===> TEMS-SCV-Website

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION ===> Register-for-TEMS1019

A common misconception about agile is that managers are unnecessary. After all, agile is based on self-organizing teams. If the teams organize themselves, what do managers do?

Unfortunately, most scrum training plays into that. Think about it: how many trainers or coaches have you seen sketch the structure of a scrum team with a drawing that includes a manager? While there’s always a scrum master and a product owner, the core team and maybe some stakeholders, have you ever seen a manager in that drawing?

This misconception can be a problem all around: A frequently cited barrier to agile adoption is managers who don’t know what to do when their teams become self-managing. When they’re not included in training, how would they (or anyone else, for that matter) know how to characterize their role. At the same time, organizations often lay down expectations of managers, some compatible with agile, some not.

Agile has shifted the old roles and responsibilities. Organizations truly embracing Scrum no longer make managers responsible for delivery. Managers bent on command-and-control are clearly a barrier to agile adoption. But managers who take a hands-off approach or think their roles are just H.R. will almost certainly stymie adoption, as well.

Ron Lichty, who advises business leaders how to make their software development “hum”, believes that managers have critical roles to play in enabling agile success. So do a lot of the early agile thought leaders. This talk is about manager roles and about success.

IEEE Oregon Section TEMS Workshop Series - Technology Strategic Planning
Date:
October 5th
9:00 AM (4 hours)
Location:
Tektronix Beaverton Campus-Bldg. 38
Beaverton
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

Strategic planning consists of translating a diverse set of input into a coherent approach to achieve business goals. A strong plan is an integral part of any successful enterprise. This workshop covers topics targeted at managing direction and planning from a corporate, department, or a small company orientation in today’s fast-paced “hyper-velocity” markets.  One of the key questions to be addressed is “How can I develop a strategy when it is nearly impossible to identify a long-term competitive advantage?”  The challenge is to be able to manage today to position the company to compete in an essentially unknowable future.  Defining simply, one’s strategy is necessary, but often insufficient to assure success.  The challenge is planning for effective implementation and rapid adaptation within a diverse team facing fast-changing technologies and markets.  The workshop provides several foundation concepts and tools to organize the strategic plans. The learning will be through presented material and discussions.
