SusTech 2025 is hosting talks on Sustainability topics leading up to the Conference April 23-25.

“Sustainable Mountain Development on the Campus: The Synergy of the Student Engaged Learning Model in the Context of Applying AI and High Technologies to Higher Education”

with Baktybek Abdrisaev and Tyler Jaynes, Utah Valley University, USA

Date/Time: July 16, 2034, 6 – 7 pm PDT (7 – 8 pm MDT)

Abstract:

Among the many challenges impacting higher education today, the ability to blend the ever-present changes in AI (artificial intelligence) and other high technologies with coursework stands out as a critical aspect of a well-rounded academic program. Particularly with respect to engaging college-level students in activities promoting the U.N’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their numerous targets, there is a growing need to establish an effective learning model that can encourage individual technological literacy while also showing how students can apply their field of study to sustainable community development. This talk will focus on how the Student Engaged Learning (SEL) model (as employed by Utah Valley University) can be an effective tool to raise individual awareness of sustainable community development, promote digital literacy and critical thinking, and prepare students for changes in labor market demands. By exploring how a focus on Sustainable Mountain Development (SMD) through the SEL model has resulted in positive student outcomes, we display how other sustainable community emphases can result in equivalent results.

Title:
Set up your Workspace - Part 1/3 of the Bring Your Own Platform(BYOP) Workshop Series
Date:
July 17th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Abstract:

The software that drives Autonomous Systems, such as Robots and Self-driving cars, runs on Platforms that can run the software fast and reliably. The platform may be broader than just the operating system or environment in which the software runs. It's the ecosystem where software is created, deployed, and maintained on diverse devices. Platform applications such as the Robot Operating System(ROS) and Docker serve numerous industries. Most Software Developers get a platform to add their software to, with their new badge and notepad, the first day they join a new employer, thanks to the SW Architect or Platform team. However, if you want to create a blue-sky application, you may find yourself unmoored without an existing platform or adopt one with more than you bargained for. 

This hands-on workshop series will help you build a minimal and general platform that may be specialized to your new application. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops and learn by doing. The style of this workshop is collaborative and conversational. This workshop is suitable for beginners and experts alike. The organizers intend to create a space to help beginners up the learning curve and allow practitioners to share their best practices.  

We will spend the first of the three sessions setting up a workspace for the platform. The agenda is as follows. 

  • Set up Linux WSL if using a Windows PC
  • Create Hello World Workspace 
  • Build and execute Hello World with G++
  • Set up VS Code to Run and Debug Hello World

Title:
"Systems and Software for Averting an Energy Crisis" IEEE OCCS & OC ACM Mtg
Date:
July 17th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
2040 Main St
Irvine, CA
Abstract:

Event Details  

Per a recent Forbes article, "The rise of generative AI and surging GPU shipments is causing data centers to scale from tens of thousands to 100,000-plus accelerators, shifting the emphasis to power as a mission-critical problem to solve." making this talk particularly relevant.

The US Department of Energy projects that by the year 2055, given current projected growth, electrical demand for devices including the internet will exceed the capacity of planet Earth to provide that power. The electrical demands on data processing centers in a world of AI and cryptocurrency on top of standard workloads lead the industry down an unsustainable path. Hyperscale systems are feverishly adding processing, memory, storage, connectivity fabric, and communications at an alarming rate. Software engineers need to be part of the total cost of ownership calculation to address this energy crisis.
This talk details some key aspects of the system architectures that are being deployed in data centers, with focus on data movement between resources. Every time data is moved there is inherent inefficiency; we will calculate the wasted data movement in key parts of the system architecture. With this analysis, it is clear that the expansion of the data center architecture has exacerbated the variations in access latency time to each resource as well.

Software developers can leverage knowledge of the energy flow through the system to improve efficiency. Gains can be made on every level from the choice of machine level data types – to choice of high level languages – to various programmer interfaces between the application and the hardware resources. The variations in media access latency are only getting wider and more complex, so software developers are tasked with comprehending not only what data to process but where to place it in the system hierarchy.

The call to action will summarize some of the specific ways careful software engineering can help us avert the looming power crisis.

Topic:

Secure and Efficient Internet of Bodies using Electro-Quasistatic Human Body Communication

 

Abstract:

We are living in the age of human-machine augmentation and coexistence (e.g., smartphones, AI assistants, computers, earbuds, smart watches) and steadily marching towards a new age of human-machine seamless cooperation (HMC) or even symbiosis. Radiative communication using electromagnetic (EM) fields is the state-of-the-art for connecting wearable and implantable devices enabling prime applications in the fields of connected healthcare, electroceuticals, neuroscience, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) and human-computer interaction (HCI) and HMC, forming a subset of the Internet of Things called the Internet of Bodies (IoB). However, owing to such radiative nature of the traditional wireless communication, EM signals propagate in all directions, inadvertently allowing an eavesdropper to intercept the information. Moreover, since only a fraction of the energy is picked up by the intended device, and the need for high carrier frequency compared to information content, wireless communication tends to suffer from poor energy-efficiency (>nJ/bit). Noting that all IoB devices share a common medium, i.e. the human body, utilizing the conductivity of the human the body allows low-loss transmission, termed as human body communication (HBC) and improves energy-efficiency. Conventional HBC implementations still suffer from significant radiation compromising physical security and efficiency. Our recent work has developed Electro-Quasistatic Human Body Communication (EQS-HBC), a method for localizing signals within the body using low-frequency transmission, thereby making it extremely difficult for a nearby eavesdropper to intercept critical private data, thus producing a covert communication channel, i.e., the human body as a ‘wire’ along with reducing interference and providing 100x more efficient communication than Bluetooth.
In this talk, I will highlight recent advancements in the field of IoB enabled by the Body-as-a-Wire technology which has a strong promise to become the future of Body Area Network (BAN) along with it’s counterpart in the Brain leading to broadband communication. We will focus on the circuit model developed in recent literature explaining the fundamental behavior of Electro-Quasistatic Body and Brain Communication, leading to understanding of channel loss. We will finally show how such low-power communication is paving the way forward for Secure and Efficient IoB for seamless Human-Machine Co-operation.

IEEE USA MOVE is offering a dynamic 3-part Virtual Operations Class essential for anyone gearing up for MOVE truck deployment, or with a keen interest in the program. New MOVE members must attend, and it's highly recommended for those who want to refresh their knowledge. We cover everything from deployment expectations to truck equipment and essential safety procedures. This virtual course spans three sessions, each lasting two hours. With the introduction of a third truck, we'll delve into the distinctions between the three.

The Day 1 session will provide an overview of the MOVE truck operation for MOVE-1, MOVE-2 and MOVE-3 with a high-level understanding of truck operations, power systems, network systems and communications/radio systems.  The differences between the three trucks will be discussed.

The Day 2 session will provide a detailed orientation and discussion on truck operations, maintenance and power generations systems.  The differences between the three trucks will be discussed.  

The Day 3 session will provide a detailed orientation and discussion on the networking and communications systems.  An overview of the Cisco Meraki and radio systems operations and functionality will be provided.  The differences between the three trucks will be discussed.

Title:
Orchestrate Processes - Part 3/3 of the Bring Your Own Platform(BYOP) Workshop Series
Date:
July 31st
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Abstract:

The software that drives Autonomous Systems, such as Robots and Self-driving cars, runs on Platforms that can run the software fast and reliably. The platform may be broader than just the operating system or environment in which the software runs. It's the ecosystem where software is created, deployed, and maintained on diverse devices. Platform applications such as the Robot Operating System(ROS) and Docker serve numerous industries. Most Software Developers get a platform to add their software, with their new badge and notepad, to the first day they join a new employer, thanks to the SW Architect or Platform team. However, if you want to create a blue-sky application, you may find yourself unmoored without an existing platform or adopt one with more than you bargained for. 

This hands-on workshop series will help you build a minimal and general platform that may be specialized to your new application. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops and learn by doing. The style of this workshop is collaborative and conversational. This workshop is suitable for beginners and experts alike. The organizers intend to create a space to help beginners up the learning curve and allow practitioners to share their best practices.  

We will spend the last of the three sessions getting services in a mixed set of languages to interact with each other in the Robot Operating System (ROS).  The agenda is as follows. 

  • Recap and level set on part 1 - Set up your Workspace
  • Recap and level set on part 2 - Containerize Applications
  • Launch Robot Operating System 2 (ROS2) in a Docker Container
  • Create C++ and Python Nodes 
  • Run multiple nodes interactively in ROS2
Title:
The Path of RF-MEMS: Past, Current and Future Perspectives
Date:
July 31st
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Abstract

RF-MEMS passive components have been on the landscape of research for about three decades now. Despite the wide discussion of novel designs with unprecedented RF performance, the actual potential of such a technology seems yet to display. At the same time, market exploitation of RF-MEMS is relatively recent and still needs to consolidate. 

The aim of this webinar is to discuss RF-MEMS technology in a rather comprehensive way, covering its inception, ups and downs, market penetration and its potential against future communications paradigms. 

The webinar is arranged in four sections, briefly described as follows:

  1. History of MEMS/RF-MEMS. Discussion of the inception and technology evolution of RF-MEMS, intertwined with the advancement of MEMS solutions for sensors and actuators.
  2. RF-MEMS at FBK. Brief outlook of the research activities and RF-MEMS devices portfolio at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), in Italy.
  3. RF-MEMS vs. market. Critical discussion of the complex and time-consuming path from research to the first market applications of MEMS-based RF passives.
  4. What’s next with 6G & FN. Broadening the point of view, brief discussion of the envisaged pivotal role of Micro & Nanotechnologies (MEMS/NEMS) in the next paradigms of 6G and Future Networks (FN) and focus on how RF-MEMS may contribute to such a challenge.
