Title:
SMART Power Flow Controllers - A Necessity for Future Power Grid
Date:
May 20th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Courtyard Room
San Francisco, CA
Abstract:

Power flow control techniques have been practiced, from using inductors, capacitors, transformers and load tap changers in the earlier days of electrical engineering to power electronics-based solutions in recent years. Even though the costs and complexities of the available solutions vary widely, the basic underlying theory of power flow control is still the same as it has always been. The question is which solution one should employ. The answer depends on knowing what the true need is. The power industry’s pressing need for the most economical ways to transfer bulk power along a desired path may be met by building new transmission lines, which is a long and costly process. Alternately, it may be quicker and cheaper to utilize the existing transmission lines more efficiently. The key is to identify the underutilized transmission lines and harness their dormant capacities to increase the power flows to the lines’ thermal limits using the most cost-effective and time-tested solutions.

ExaGraph: Graph and combinatorial methods for enabling exascale applications
Date:
May 20th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Combinatorial algorithms in general and graph algorithms in particular play a critical enabling role in numerous scientific applications. However, the irregular memory access nature of these algorithms makes them one of the hardest algorithmic kernels to implement on parallel systems. With tens of billions of hardware threads and deep memory hierarchies, the exascale computing systems in particular pose extreme challenges in scaling graph algorithms. The codesign center on combinatorial algorithms, ExaGraph, was established to design and develop methods and techniques for efficient implementation of key combinatorial (graph) algorithms chosen from a diverse set of exascale applications. Algebraic and combinatorial methods have a complementary role in the advancement of computational science and engineering, including playing an enabling role on each other. In this presentation, we survey the algorithmic and software development activities performed under the auspices of ExaGraph and detail experimental results from GPU-accelerated pre-exascale and exascale systems.

Title:
Towards airborne Connectivity: Multi-Layered Networks for Optical Backhaul
Date:
May 21st
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Global coverage to address the significant portion of the global population that remains unconnected or
under-connected is expected to be achieved through the deployment of non-terrestrial networks (NTNs), which
encompass a range of technologies such as High-Altitude Platform Stations (HAPSs), Satellites (GEO, MEO, LEO), and
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the realm of cutting-edge wireless technologies such as 6G and beyond, the goal is
to seamlessly integrate NTN nodes into terrestrial networks. Currently, there are isolated deployment examples, such as
LEO mega-constellations. This presentation focuses on the design of a multi-layer airborne backhaul network, utilizing
HAPSs and rotary-wing UAVs to establish free space optical (FSO) backhaul connections with ground-based stations.
HAPS fleets operate in circular tracks at stratospheric altitudes. Conversely, rotary-wing UAVs operate at medium and
lower altitudes, complementing HAPSs. The airborne backhaul architecture requires careful design to ensure
uninterrupted connectivity with ground-based stations, eliminating coverage gaps. The presentation outlines a
systematic approach for designing FSO-based airborne backhaul systems, detailing the process of determining the
appropriate number of airborne layers, HAPS tracks, HAPS units per track, the number of UAVs at lower altitudes, the
operating altitude for middle-layer UAVs, and the number of laser sources per airborne node based on a given coverage
area.This presentation will cover the importance of signal processing in the IT section, applications, future prospects as
well as what you need to succeed in the subfield of electrical engineering. It will also cover how classical implementation
of SP or DSP can be vastly improved by complementing it with ML modules.

Title:
Multilevel memristive switching devices for efficient analog In-memory AI
Date:

Abstract:
Oxide based multilevel memristive switching devices for efficient analog In-memory computing in Artificial Intelligence applicationsDr. Glenn Ning GeCEO, TetraMem IncTetraMem's memristive devices-based analog in-memory computing significantly boosts throughput and energy efficiency in deep learning. Our approach utilizes pre-trained synaptic weights from cloud-based training, directly programming them into computing memristors/multi-level RRAMs made with nanometer thin-films for edge deployment and enabling post-tuning to accommodate specific scenarios.

 

High-precision programmability ensures uniform performance across memristive networks by necessitating numerous distinguishable conductance levels in each device. This advancement benefits applications like neural network training and inference computing.

 

By achieving stable 8 bits and above multi-levels conductance in individual memristor devices (up to 11 bits/cell, as featured in "Nature" main journal publication, Mar 2023), we enable monolithically integrated semiconductor chips, featuring large crossbar arrays on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) circuits in the commercial foundry, suitable for diverse AI applications. Our arbitrary precision computing based on analog computing work is published with "Science" main journal in Feb 2024.

Title:
On-Chip Antennas: The Last Barrier to True RF System-on-Chip
Date:
May 29th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Antennas are integral part of wireless communication devices and traditionally have remained off the Integrated Circuits (ICs which are also commonly known as chips) resulting in large sized modules. In the last decade, the increased level of integration provided by silicon technologies and emerging applications at millimeter wave frequencies (such as 5G/6G) has helped to achieve true System-on-Chip solutions bringing the antennas on the chip. This is because antenna sizes at these frequencies become small enough for practical on-chip realization. Though, there are a number of benefits of putting antennas on-chip, such as monolithic integration resulting in compact systems, robustness due to absence of bond wires or other connection mechanisms between the antenna and the circuits, lower cost due to mass manufacturing in standard CMOS processes, etc. However, there are a number of challenges to overcome, for instance dealing with silicon substrate high conductivity and permittivity (resulting in poor radiation efficiency), metal stack-up and layout restrictions, and on-chip characterization through delicate probes, etc. Furthermore, the co-design of circuits and antenna, which sometime have contradicting requirements, need knowledge of both the domains.  This talk aims to discuss the above challenges in detail as well as the proposed solutions. In particular, many design examples will be shown for the gain and radiation efficiency enhancement of on-chip antennas through artificial magnetic conductors. The talk will conclude with the upcoming trends in the field of on-chip antennas.

Electromagnetic-based techniques for wall parameter estimation to mitigate the adverse wall effects and enhance the efficient imaging and classification of targets within and/or behind walls will be discussed. For efficient imaging, details of fast polarimetric and tomographic based imaging algorithms for both 2D and 3D scenarios will be given, and imaging results for various realistic scenarios using both numerical simulations and laboratory measurements will be presented, Development of wideband and
ultrawideband antenna arrays, which are essential in successful implementation of see-thru-wall technology, together with hardware descriptions of two constructed portable systems will conclude the presentation. Throughout, I will include a personal perspective from my own two-decade journey in this interdisciplinary research area.

IEEE Tech Talk - Space Debris - Who owns it?
Date:
June 13th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

IP Rights in Space:  Space debris. Who owns it?

This is the foundation of one of the big challenges to space debris remediation - even if a satellite breaks up into dangerous pieces, technically the country of registration still owns all those pieces, and it is not allowed to handle and/or manipulate the space objects of another country. Should the outer space treaty require the state of registry to maintain jurisdiction and control, and if control is lost should other countries have the right to mitigate potential dangers? Find out this and more today at IEEE Tech Talk.

Abstract: Cities worldwide are transitioning quickly towards a low-carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource-efficient economy. Artificial Intelligence of Things (IoT) is a combination of Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable autonomous decision-making, data analytics, and system optimization. This talk will share our experiences on AIoT for smart cities. The first work is called Green IoT, which provides artificial intelligence and open data for sustainable city development. In this work, we developed an intelligent IoT system for air pollution monitoring in Uppsala, Sweden. The second work, called Smart Water Auditing, uses IoT and machine learning to provide insights into how much water is consumed in different domestic use categories. It aims to reduce water consumption and raise awareness of people's water consumption habits. This talk will present our AIoT system designs, machine learning algorithms, implementation, and experimental results in Hong Kong and Sweden.

IEEE-USA Livestream Webinar: R&D Tax Credits
Date:
June 26th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

The IRS’ definition of R&D and industry’s definition of R&D differ. A large majority of R&D performed in the US is done in the private sector, rather than done by universities and the work that qualifies for R&D Tax Credits is much broader (and more lucrative) than you would think. The program that pays for this R&D work is the Research Tax Credit, which is administered by the IRS. This presentation, R&D Tax Credits for Engineers and Scientists, is a high level basic primer that will teach you what type of R&D work that you already do qualifies for the credit and the general steps required to present your work successfully to the IRS. 

Title:
Facilitating Security and Trust among Multiple Parties through Blockchain Techniques
Date:
June 27th
2:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Building Q
San Diego, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

*Hybrid event but in-person attendance encouraged - opportunity to meet and greet the distinguished lecturer as well as local IEEE ExCom members!  

With the prosperity of edge computing, massive users and devices at the network edge are more actively involved in the networks, pushing the information collection, computation, storage, and communications more towards end users. In these more decentralized systems, how to enable efficient and trustworthy interactions among different parties becomes an essential issue. 

Blockchain has been considered as a promising approach to facilitate the establishment of decentralized trustworthy computing systems with non-repudiated information records. For example, Bitcoin has attracted wide attention as a secure and decentralized platform to enable peer-to-peer exchanges of digital currency. Ethereum then generalizes blockchain as a state machine and enables smart contracts, a piece of code that can support complex logic and be self-executed when certain conditions are met. Such generalization enables blockchain to potentially serve as a computing infrastructure and opens new opportunities for blockchain to facilitate secure and decentralized interactions among any parties without making high trust assumptions about them.

In this talk, we will discuss some key characteristics of blockchain and a few promising applications of blockchain that can facilitate security and trust among multiple parties. Some examples include designing a secure and efficient multi-signature scheme to facilitate multi-party approval process on Fabric, an enterprise blockchain platform; applying blockchain to secure software updates for resource-constrained IoT networks; and to facilitate fair trading in transactive energy market.

Title:
IEEE-USA Livestream Webinar: Communication in Hybrid & Remote Offices (Part 1)
Date:
July 10th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Abstract:

This dynamic session uses case studies drawn from the IEEE community to explore effective strategies to address the challenges of mandated office returns, including employee resistance, attrition, quiet quitting, and maintaining diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We'll dissect the nuanced dynamics of resistance, from overt opposition to subtler forms, and examine attrition trends that see employees seeking new opportunities in response to return mandates. The phenomenon of quiet quitting, characterized by minimal employee engagement, prompts a reevaluation of engagement and inclusivity strategies. A critical focus will be the impact of return policies on DEI efforts, particularly on underrepresented groups who may prefer remote work due to various socio-economic factors. This session offers actionable insights and best practices to navigate these challenges, fostering a thriving and inclusive post-pandemic workplace. All attendees will have an opportunity to receive a complimentary copy of the speaker's best-selling book on which this talk is based, called Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams
