Location:
Building B
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:
CASS Distinguished Lecturer Event"Algorithm/Architecture Co-Design For Smart Signals And Systems In Cognitive Cloud/Edge"Dr. Chris Gwo Giun, National Cheng Kung UniversityEvent Organized By:

Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) of the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section

Co-sponsors:PROGRAM:

6:00 - 6:30 PM Networking & Refreshments
6:30 - 7:45 PM Talk
7:45 - 8:00 PM Q&A/Adjourn

Lecture will be broadcast on Zoom and recording will be available. Please register to receive zoom conference details before the event.

Abstract:

Niklaus Emil Wirth introduced the innovative idea that Programming = Algorithm + Data Structure. Inspired by this, we advance the concept to the next level by stating that Design = Algorithm + Architecture. With concurrent exploration of algorithm and architecture entitled Algorithm/Architecture Co-exploration (AAC), this methodology introduces a leading paradigm shift in advanced system design from System-on-a-Chip to Cloud and Edge.

As algorithms with high accuracy become exceedingly more complex and Edge/IoT generated data becomes increasingly bigger, flexibleparallel/reconfigurable processing are crucial in the design of efficientsignal processing systems having low power. Hence the analysis of algorithms and data for potential computing in parallel, efficient data storage and data transfer is crucial. With extension of AAC for SoC system designs to even more versatile platforms based on analytics architecture, system scope is readily extensible to cognitive cloud and reconfigurable edge computing for multimedia and mobile health, a cross-level-of abstraction topic which will be introduced in this tutorial together with case studies.

Bio:

Chris Gwo Giun Lee is an investigator in the field of signal processing systems including multimedia and bioinformatics. His endeavors in system design, based on analytics of algorithm concurrently with analytics architecture, has made possible computations on System-on-Chip and cloud platforms in resolving complex problems with both accuracy and efficiency. Having previously held leading and managerial positions in the industry such as System Architect in former Philips Semiconductor in Silicon Valley, Lee was recruited to NCKU in 2003 where he found and is currently directing the Bioinfotronics Research Center.

Lee received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University and both his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from University of Massachusetts. He has contributed more than 130 original research and technical publications with the invention of 60+ patents worldwide.

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.

Title:
Imaging Without Lenses
Date:
September 10th
5:30 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
SC-12
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Traditional lens-based imaging relies on mapping each point in a scene to a single point on an imaging sensor, yielding a direct approximation to the scene. In contrast, lensless cameras rely on optics that are not one-to-one, bur rather one-to-many: each scene point is mapped to many pixels on the sensor. This permits replacing the lens with simple, compact optics such as a single phase plate, an absorption mask, or simply free space propagation. Because the resulting measurement no longer directly approximates the scene, the image must be recovered computationally. This, along with the multiplexed measurements, enable use of compressive sensing techniques to recover high dimensional signals (e.g. volumetric intensity or video) from a single snapshot measurement. This technology enables compact systems that efficiently capture high dimensional signals, holding promise for the creation of implantable in-vivo imaging devices.

Topic: Additive Manufacturing: Disruptor driving the 4th Industrial Revolution
-Technologies and Applications-


Speaker: Jurgen Daniel

Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing is progressing at a rapid pace with new technologies or applications making headlines constantly. The 4th Industrial Revolution, of which AM is an integral part, is approaching.
A recent forecast by ABI Research is projecting that AM will produce US[vtools-xml.php] url[asc/6] Trillion worth of products by 2030.
Today, we can already see AM’s impact on the aerospace and automotive industry, on industrial tooling but also medicine, dental care, jewelry and electronics. Recent research has even raised the hope for 3D printed organs for transplants.
This presentation will give an overview of AM technologies for 3 dimensional objects and their applications.

ABSTRACT: The success of deep Learning (or AI2.0) depends solely on Back-propagation (BP), a external learning paradigm, whose supervision is exclusively accessed via the external interfacing nodes (i.e. input/output neurons). As such, Deep Learning has been limited to the parameter training of the neural nets (NNs). The important task of designing optimal net structures has to resort to trial and error. Therefore, we shall design an Xnet which may be use to simultaneously train the structure and parameters of the net. In addition, it can facilitate Internal Neuron's Explainablility so as to fully support DARPA's Explainable AI (i.e. XAI or AI3.0). Our internal learning paradigm leads to an Explainable Neural Networks (Xnet) comprising (1) internal teacher labels (ITL) and (2) internal optimization metrics (IOM). X-learning allows us to effectively rank the internal neurons (hidden nodes) and thus sets the footing for the notion of structural gradient and structural learning.

Pursuant to our simulation studies, Xnet can simultaneously compress the structure and raise the accuracy. There is evidence supporting that it may outperform many popular pruning/compression methods. Most importantly, X-learning opens up promising research fronts on (1) explainable learning models for XAI and (2) machine-to-machine mutual learning which will become appealing in the 5G era

Aperture Synthesis from Free-flying Collectors without Accurate Metrology
Date:
September 5th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
505 Oppenheimer Dr
Los Alamos, NM
Abstract:

Radio frequency aperture synthesis from multiple free-flying collectors
is traditionally dependent on highly accurate intra-constellation
metrology and shared clocks.  We demonstrate that relaxed precision of
relative positioning and clocking can be acceptable through
computational means in post processing.  

The work assumes a small cluster of RF collectors that can collect on
an emitter at the same time, with position and time accuracy provided
by commonly available aerospace GPS units.  No cross links or inter-
vehicle spacing is assumed.  In lieu of accurate timing, correlation
searches are performed at the ground station.    A key part of the idea
is an alignment stage following collection.  This is composed of a
Cross Ambiguity Function (CAF) search across all possible
FDOA/TDOA  shifts, and a phase alignment search.   These time,
frequency and phase corrections are applied to the data, bringing them
into alignment with each other.  Maintaining this alignment over a
longer time span is the challenge. 

This talk covers our work to date.  This includes on-orbit results, a
simulation model of the coherence-through-computation mechanism,
consisting of models of the geolocation process, Doppler correction
over time, and transforming input signals to a common time
and  frequency reference.

IEEE 1547-2018 ALASKA WORKSHOP
Date:
September 4th
9:00 AM (2 days)
Location:
Alaska Communications Business Center
Anchorage, AK
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

We have an opportunity to have a Workshop in Anchorage at the beginning of September because engineers who have been engaged in the business of Renewable Energy and in the development of the applicable standards will be in Alaska.  The full agenda is still in development and any suggestions for topics will be welcome to ensure this Workshop is of maximum benefit to you and to Alaska.  More announcements will be made as the development of the Workshop unfolds.  This information is applicable to anyone who is considering Alternate Energy Applications for a Utility, an Industrial facility, a community power system or remote locations. 

IEEE 1547 has changed a lot since it was originally published in 2003.  The high penetration of Solar energy DER in California and Hawaii demanded change in how interconnects need to interact with the EPS's so IEEE 1547 was revised to accommodate the new requirements.  The IEEE 1547 changes force changes to the UL 1741 Standard for grid tie inverters which will impact all those involved with interconnect of DER to EPS.

I believe that now is a very good time to bring a lot of the technical issues out which can impact the Utilities planning, and the IPP (Independent Power Producers) and any others who need to know what the technical requirements and constraints are which affect how each proposed DER installation should be addressed.  We are dealing with systems, both electrical power systems and communications systems.

 

Potential topics

  • Islanding-Intentional and Unintentional
  • Voltage Ride through
  • Voltage and power control (active and reactive)
  • DER (Inverter) performance requirements
  • Things engineers and managers for the  EPS need to know.
  • Things IPP operators need to know.
  • Use of stored energy
  • Open discussion or panel discussion on selected topics.

Title:
Near-Field Infrared Spectroscopy of Domain Walls and Single-Sheet Materials
Date:
August 28th
3:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Berkeley, CA
Abstract:

Near-field infrared nano-spectroscopy is a fusion of tip-based scanning probe techniques and
Fourier transform spectroscopy that enables real space mapping of functional materials.
Originally developed for use with narrow band infrared lasers, recent efforts have brought this
method together with accelerator-based sources to yield significant advantages including
broadband imaging. Crucially, the spatial resolution of a point scan is 20 × 20 nm2 – thus
beating the diffraction limit. Line scans can be carried out as well. The recent extension into
the far infrared is enabling a number of new initiatives including (i) infrared nanospectroscopy of ferroelastic domain walls in the hybrid improper ferroelectric Ca3Ti2O71 and
(ii) near-field infrared spectroscopy of single layer MnPS32 – both of which will be discussed
in this presentation. I will argue that uncovering real space spectral contrast is a
transformative opportunity that will impact many areas of science.

How To Increase The Penetration Of Renewable Energies In Insular Power Systems: The Experience Of The Canary Islands

Abstract

The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago located at the northwest of Africa, and composed by seven volcanic islands, 2.1 million inhabitants, and hosted 15.6 million tourists in 2018. The closer the island is to the Sahara Desert, the older geologically it is and drier its climatic conditions. This effect is enhanced by the fact that erosion makes the orography of the older islands less abrupt and, consequently, incapable of retaining the humid trade winds flowing from the northeast. These climatic characteristics define much of the huge renewable energy potential that these islands offer to the 6 isolated power grids that supply electricity to the power system.

El Hierro power grid is leading the integration of renewable energy in the Canaries reaching a 56.5% in 2018 almost totally supplied by the hydro-wind power station of Gorona del Viento SA. Important technical issues are being solved for reaching this and higher expected values of renewable energy integration in the coming future, as the plant started being tested in summer 2014 and is still below its estimated potential. But hydropower infrastructure in the Islands is currently very limited because of the lack of water resources and locations for large reservoirs, pipelines and turbines.

In general, at present (end of 2018) the Canary Islands have reached a 20.3% of non dispatchable energy (wind and PV) integrated in the power system, and this value is expected to continue growing to a 45% in 2025. A record instantaneous non dispatchable energy integration of 60.0% has been reached in the island of Tenerife in May 19, 2019. However, the system operator is starting programming curtailment of wind and PV in the larger power grids from the beginning of 2019. Also, concern about the visual impact of the latest wind farms is rising.

At the same time, distributed PV is starting growing fast as the new regulation approved in April 2019 by the Spanish government has removed a “sun-tax”, simplified administrative procedures, and favoured not only individual homes to install PV systems but also community buildings. In large areas of our Islands the average solar irradiation is higher than 1800 kWh/kWp·yr. Also, the new Directives expected to be approved by the European Union for regulating the electricity markets will bring new opportunities mostly based on the concept of “energy communities” and smart grids.

In this talk, an introductory description of the different power grids in the Canary islands will be shown and how the insular, regional and central governments are managing the path for a very high penetration of non-dispatchable energy technologies in our islands. Moreover, how our distributed PV market is evolving will be described. Also, the new storage systems that are being installed in our different power grids will be exposed, mostly devoted to avoid frequency disruptions and voltage drops. Finally, some conclusions about the similarities of the Hawaiian and Canaries energy systems, and the opportunities for a stronger collaboration between both archipelagos will be discussed.

Spin-Orbit Technologies: From Magnetic Memory to Terahertz Generation

Milpitas, CA
Abstract:

http://sites.ieee.org/scv-mag/event/spin-orbit-technologies-from-magnetic-memory-to-terahertz-generation/

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.

5G and IoT or Internet of Threats
Date:

Newbury Park, CA
Abstract:

We are on the cusp of a new industrial revolution with the deployment of 5G networks around the world. Unlike the previous generations of cellular communication, 5G will also focus heavily on machine to machine communication. It is expected that by 2020 over thirty billion devices will be connected to the internet. Over the coming years using a combination of 5G and WiFi, these devices connected to the internet will continue to grow at an explosive rate. The security of these devices in many cases has been overlooked or not been taken as seriously as it should have been. We are at risk of exposing ourselves to massive network attacks, unless these security concerns are not addressed.

The presentation is a cautionary tale that recounts the largest IoT attack on the internet, costing millions of dollars around the world. We will look at how the attack was implemented, the tricks that it used and the people behind it. Only this year one of the last people involved (that we know of) was imprisoned in the U.K!

Computing Causal Relations at Scale

Abstract:
Abstract: 

What causes what? How do we untangle the “why” behind processes that regulate the brain, the climate or the economy? If “Correlation does not imply causation" is the standard mantra in science, how can we ever discover causal relationships behind the data? Will it ever be possible for intelligent AI to make its own deductions and predictions? In recent years researchers have developed mathematical techniques that give us the power to infer the underlying “why” behind scientific data. What’s more, we’ve learned that we can discover these causes without performing experiments. Starting with a little practical example with lightbulbs that can be worked out by hand we will see how the problem scales as the number of variables increases. To compute the neural connections in a zebrafish brain, high performance computing is essential.

Title:
Basics of Jitter in Wireline Communications
Date:
August 23rd
10:00 AM (2 days)
Location:
Qualcomm AZ-Auditorium (10155 Pacific Heights Blvd, San Diego, CA 92121)
San diego, CA
Abstract:

Jitter refers to deviation from ideal timing in clock and data transitions. In wireline communications, jitter reduces the timing margin available for clock and data recovery (CDR) circuits and poses significant challenges to signal integrity as the data rates march towards 100Gb/s/lane and beyond. In this talk, we first review the basic definitions of jitter and its properties, the relationship between jitter and phase noise, and the effects of jitter on CDR and other building blocks of a wireline system. We then describe the concept of jitter transfer, jitter generation, and jitter tolerance curves, and the methods of characterizing, modeling, and simulating jitter. Finally, we present some recent works on jitter measurement and jitter mitigation techniques that are used to optimize the link performance.

Brief History and Trends of Automation and Artificial Intelligence and Their Near–Term Impacts
Date:
August 22nd
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
10401 Roselle St
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Abstract: Automation has been a quest in many human endeavours, mostly in tasks which are routine and mundane. While some of these can be traced to early times, the industrial age of 19th and 20th centuries gave substantial impetus to the automation culminating in electro–mechanical systems controlled by electronics / computing systems. Even much before the advent of modern electronic computers, there have been quests to
automate and mechanize aspects of human thinking and cognition. The birth of modern electronic computers spawned many formal areas of study within the computing discipline, such as programming, hardware design, operating systems, programming languages, etc. Among these ‘early’ areas was Artificial Intelligence (AI), a term coined in 1956. AI (Artificial Intelligence), among several goals, has contributed to the automation of several tasks involving human reasoning and decision making. While several of the tasks/goals have not had much success, several others have been successes, although in limited ways, and many others have matured and have been incorporated into products which are routinely used today. With the overwhelming amount of data and information to be handled in the present day in many professions, several of the AI techniques are called upon to automate and ease the tasks of deriving useful knowledge from out of the data and information, which are scattered.


In this presentation, we outline several examples of automation in a variety of areas and major developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI). While automation results in several categories of jobs to either vanish, the workforce in several others to diminish, it also creates several new categories of jobs and professions. We will also analyse and discuss the drastic changes in the nature of future jobs and the workforce reductions in many domains, which seem certain in the wake of rapid advances in AI and its use in automation in several domains.

LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) Tour
Date:
August 22nd
3:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
LIGO campus
Richland, WA
Abstract:

Abstract: (From the website:) The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) was designed to open the field of gravitational-wave astrophysics through the direct detection of gravitational waves predicted by Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. LIGO’s multi-kilometer-scale gravitational wave detectors use laser interferometry to measure the minute ripples in space-time caused by passing gravitational waves from cataclysmic cosmic events such as colliding neutron stars or black holes, or by supernovae. LIGO consists of two widely-separated interferometers within the United States—one in Hanford, Washington and the other in Livingston, Louisiana—operated in unison to detect gravitational waves.

FAQs

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:
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.
