Title:
IEEE SPS Chapter Technical Meeting (Speaker: Dr. Hoi-To Wai, CUHK)
Date:
October 18th
10:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Kelley Engineering Center
Corvallis
Abstract:

Prof. Hoi-To Wai (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) will deliver a technical talk titled "Non-Asymptotic Analysis for Biased Stochastic Approximation Scheme". The abstract is as follows:

"Stochastic approximation (SA) is a key method used in statistical learning and reinforcement learning. In this talk, we analyze a general SA scheme to minimize a non-convex and smooth objective function. We consider an update procedure whose drift term depends on a state-controlled Markov chain and the mean field is not necessarily of gradient type, therefore it is a biased SA scheme. Importantly, we provide the first non-asymptotic convergence rate under such dynamical setting. We illustrate these settings with the online expectation maximization and the policy-gradient method for average reward maximization, highlighting its tradeoff in performance between bias and variance."

 

The talk will begin at 10am on October 18, Friday. The meeting location is Room 1007, Kelley Engineering Center, Corvallis, Oregon 97331. The Kelley Engineering Center is located at the Corvallis campus of Oregon State University.

Abstract:

IEC 62368-1 Unraveled:

Abstract:  Speaker: Richard Johnson.  This presentation is a conversation about the transition of IEC 60950-1 and IEC 60065 to IEC 62368-1. The current standards will be withdrawn in Dec. 2020 so time is getting short to transition your products. This presentation will highlight and unravel some of the main differences between the old and new standards as well as those between the 2nd edition of 62368-1 and the proposed 3rd edition

Abstract:

The officers of the Oregon/SW Washington Chapter of the Industry Applications Society invite you to join us Wednesday evening, October 30, 2019, for our dinner, meeting and technical presentation.  We appreciate the support of all who attend our dinners and presentations.  We will be meeting this month at Brown and Caldwell, 6500 SW Macadam, Ave., Suite 200, Portland, OR 97239. This location is easy to access by car from I-5 and parking is FREE. Note that building access is restricted. Attendees will need to phone Jim Cook at 503-349-0970 for access.  

The cost will be with the menu to be announced. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions when you register.  There is no charge to attend the presentation only.  Our IAS Chapter always offers free dinners for local PSU, OSU, George Fox, U of P, OIT and WSUV Electrical Engineering Students who attend our meetings. This is an excellent networking opportunity for students as our meetings are attended by many professionals in consulting, industrial engineering and electrical equipment manufacturing.

Title:
IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter November Meeting and Seminar
Date:
November 6th
6:00 PM (2 hours)

Abstract:

IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter November Meeting and Seminar

Join us for a talk from SSCS Distinguished Lecturer Dr. Keith A. Bowman on Wednesday, November 6th. Food and drinks will be provided during the networking event from 6:00 to 6:30pm.  The seminar will be from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and we will continue with networking until 8:00pm.

 

Abstract:

Dynamic device, circuit, and system parameter variations degrade processor performance, energy efficiency, and yield across all market segments, ranging from small embedded cores in an Internet of Things (IoT) device to large multicore servers.  This lecture introduces the primary variations during the processor operational lifetime, including supply voltage droops, temperature changes, transistor and interconnect aging, radiation-induced soft errors, and workload fluctuations.  This presentation then describes the negative impact of these variations on processor logic and memory across a wide range of voltage and clock frequency operating conditions.  To mitigate the adverse effects from dynamic variations, this lecture presents adaptive and resilient circuits while highlighting the key design trade-offs and testing implications for product deployment.

Speaker Biography:

Keith A. Bowman is a Principal Engineer and Manager in the Processor Research Team at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. in Raleigh, NC, USA.  He is responsible for researching and developing circuit technologies for enhancing the performance and energy efficiency of Qualcomm processors.  He pioneered the invention, design, and test of Qualcomm’s first commercially successful circuit for mitigating the adverse effects of supply voltage droops.  He received the B.S. degree from North Carolina State University in 1994 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1995 and 2001, respectively, all in electrical engineering.  From 2001 to 2013, he worked in the Technology Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Group and the Circuit Research Lab at Intel Corporation in Hillsboro, OR, USA.  In 2013, he joined Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Title:
Bringing the pr0t0n arm to market and Open Manipulator build report
Date:
November 11th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom
Beaverton
Abstract:

Robert Toppel and his team will talk about bringing the pr0t0n arm to market. e1ectr0n is a spinoff of Axiom Electronics who has been hosting our meetings. pr0t0n is targeted at high-mix, low-volume manufacturing. It is focused at skilled workers who can train the arm for repetitive tasks. A goal is to mitigate the shortage of the high skilled worker required for low-volume manufacturing.

pr0t0n supports two training methods: game controller precision movements and keyboard code tasks. It is driven by a dual-core ARM processor with an FPGA embedded PID controller. It supports real time inverse kinematics and 5-axis movement. An effector roll servo adds another axis. Its rated payload is 4.4 pounds with a reach of 21.5 inches.

See https://www.e1ectr0n.com for details.


We will also provide a build report by members assembling the Robotis Open Manipulator. It employs Dynamixel X series servos. ROS supports its OpenCR controller. It has a 500 gram payload with a 14.9 inch reach.

See http://emanual.robotis.com/docs/en/platform/openmanipulator_x/overview/ for details.
