  • We are in the process of transforming the average, consumer vehicle into an all-encompassing super machine with ubiquitous sensing, telecommunications, Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML), and infotainment. There is some discussion on how all these will increase the energy density footprint of AV/EVs, but rarely is it clearly articulated how dramatic this change will be and how it will impact the world around us. If a person said they were going to build a Datacenter/Base Station/Sensor Network/Theatre-on-Wheels, the concept may get brushed off as absurd. However, that is exactly what we are ALL talking about today, whether we are aware of it or not!

Oregon Comsoc: Computation Offloading and Activation of Mobile Edge Computing Servers: Minority Game Models
Date:
October 21st
5:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Portland
Abstract:

 

Abstract: With the increasing popularity of resource-intensive mobile applications, offloading computationally expensive tasks to the edge nodes such as base stations and access points will be a key feature of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) networks. However, compared to the classical remote cloud, these edge nodes are typically equipped with low power computational resources with limited computational capability. Therefore, efficient computation offloading systems need to be designed where the servers are efficiently utilized while fulfilling the users' latency constraints. One such approach is to save energy by dynamic server mode selection between active and inactive modes. In this talk, I will present novel Minority game (MG)-based distributed methods for computation offloading and server mode selection for MEC networks. The basics of a minority game model will be also discussed. In the proposed methods, efficient activation of MEC servers is ensured while users' quality of experience (QoE) requirements are also satisfied.

Title:
DC Fast Charging with Energy Storage
Date:
October 21st
12:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Wherever, AK
Abstract:

Due to COVID-19 precautions, this section meeting will be conducted via Zoom.

 

One problem associated with deploying EV charging infrastructure is the issue of the demand spikes that would naturally result from implementing DC fast charging for electric vehicles. In many cases, the resulting demand charges from such applications can be rather prohibitive, and in other cases, large intermittent loads such as these can present problems for power distribution systems. 

At least one company has taken on the challenge of addressing these demand spikes by implementing energy storage to act as a buffer that enables fast charging without these problems. The company is eCamion, and they are implementing their solution for Solid Waste Services here in Anchorage to accomodated their new electric garbage truck. 

If you want to learn about the the electric garbage truck project and the associated charging solution, you will want to joing this meeting.

 

 

Title:
IEEE PES&PELS Virtual Meeting: Challenges/Opportunities of Transportation Electrification
Date:
October 21st
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Virtual via Microsoft Teams
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Transportation is a leading cause of carbon emissions. Electrification of the transportation sector is a solution considered by concerned policymakers around the world. Supporting the electrification of the transportation sector requires a paradigm shift in the operational planning of the electricity grid. Besides, to fulfill the intention of transportation electrification as a cause to diminish the carbon footprint of mobility, the generated power delivered by the grid to the transportation sector should be from carbon-free resources. It will unveil several challenges to the operation of the grid due to the significant increase in its load. However, on the other hand, it also creates opportunities to enhance operational planning of the power grid given the potential flexibility in scheduling the demand. In this talk, we will focus on the impact of electric vehicles as a significant portion of transportation electrification on the electricity distribution network.  We will discuss the potential challenges that it brings to the electricity distribution network, particularly the potential fluctuations in voltage profile across the network.  It calls for possible necessary upgrades to aging grid infrastructure through optimal expansion planning decisions as well as short-term operational strategies to mitigate such an adverse impact by leveraging artificial intelligence techniques.

The Emerging Implications of Wireless Coexistence on Today’s Modern Vehicles
Date:
October 21st
9:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Presentation 1: An Overview of Wireless Coexistence Measurements and Challenges: Why Can’t We All Get Along?  Wireless coexistence is a formidable problem that limits access and use of spectrum in today’s connected world.  End-users, system administrators, network planners, and regulators all desire to understand how their wireless devices, systems, or networks will perform amid many other wireless devices before they are deployed. Given this desire, how can we design tests that quantify wireless performance? To start, can we pin down what quantities represent good wireless performance? How should test results be interpreted? This talk will present an overview of the concept of wireless coexistence in general, then discuss coexistence models, measurements, standards, and challenges. The goal of this presentation is to leave audience members with a better understanding of what coexistence is (or isn’t) and a deeper understanding of how we can tackle coexistence problems to enable better access to spectrum.

 

Presentation 2: Wireless Coexistence Implications on Automotive Test and Measurement Applications In the rapidly evolving industry of autonomous, electric, and hybrid vehicles, the ability to successfully provide vehicle-level antenna pattern measurements as well as EMC measurements to verify the performance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) will be key to the future of this market and address public safety concerns. The automotive trends in wireless capabilities for high data streaming functions such as vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication and other systems including anti-collision/adaptive cruise control radar as well as general wireless based functions such as navigation and infotainment, are just a few of the features impacting the functionality of today’s modern vehicles. This presentation details the challenges presented by these market demands, the implications of wireless coexistence on today’s modern vehicles, and how innovative testing solutions help drive the technologies forward to real-life applications.

Title:
Summer 2020 NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) on Sensors and Machine Learning
Date:
October 16th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

The Internet of Things (IoT), the ecosystem of physical objects connected via the internet, has seen rapid growth over recent years and has been enhanced by mobile applications. Machine Learning (ML) algorithms and sensors are critical to this technology, leading to a demand in developing sensors that are more efficient and less expensive. The summer RET program brings ten high school teachers and two community college instructors together to participate in research activities at Arizona State University.  After a hands-on bootcamp centered on key concepts in ML, sensors, and IoT, teachers are immersed in a 6-week research program and mentored by a team of ASU faculty, graduate student advisors, and industry leaders. ASU continues their engagement with teachers throughout the school year and offers assistance and feedback on transferring their research experiences into the classroom. The goal of the RET is to give teachers a deeper understanding of ML and IoT such that they can develop engaging materials around these topics for their classrooms. Moreover, teachers’ experiences motivate and energize their students to engage in STEM activities and career pathways.

The summer 2020 RET presented unique challenges due to Covid-19 and the inability to meet with the students in person.  To develop an all online RET experience, we reduced the number of participating teachers from 12 to 2 and developed new online synchronous and asynchronous lessons and material to teach fundamental content and hands-on application of ML algorithms online.  Using solar array monitoring as our sensor IoT application, both teachers developed an understanding of ML algorithms and concepts, along with hands on programming in Python using Google Colab.  K-means, KNN, linear and logistic regression, SVMs, and neural networks were described, programmed, and evaluated using real-world solar sensor data.  Despite the difficult and unusual circumstances, the program was a success and, in this talk, I will discuss this program, the challenges we faced due to Covid-19, strategies we used to overcome these challenges, and the outcomes of the program.

The RET is funded in part by NSF award 1953745 and the Sensor, Signal & Information Processing (SenSIP) Center.  Some of the teacher training sessions were collaborative with the CBBG ERC.

Title:
A New Perspective on Lower-VHF Communications
Date:
October 15th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Bellevue, WA
Abstract:

Robust, secure and low power wireless communications and networking are needed to support emerging applications in emergency and disaster response, robotics, autonomous vehicles, internet of things, and battlefield communications in physically complex environments including indoor/outdoor, dense urban and other challenging scenarios. These applications and the ever increasing need for efficiently exploiting different parts of the scarce electromagnetic spectrum have led to exploration of new ways to use High and Very High Frequency (HF-VHF) bands.  In this talk, we take a fresh look at the lower VHF, especially for short-range low-power use in dense urban environments. Topics include propagation and channel modeling, miniaturized antennas and fundamental limits on size and efficiency, biomimetic arrays that exploit EM coupling, adversarial beamforming, and networking.  Applications and experiments with multi-agent autonomy and distributed beamforming illustrate the potential of low-power long-wavelength communications to provide new levels of network connectivity and collaborative robot control.

Title:
A MICROGRID WEBINAR SERIES- Session 3: Island Detection in Refinery Cogeneration
Date:
October 15th
5:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Pullman, WA
Abstract:

Island Detection in Refinery Cogeneration

 

Cogeneration facilities are common fixtures at large industrial facilities where steam is required for processes and electricity can be generated as part of the steam cycle. In some cases, the electrical generation capability is high enough to support the entire facility’s electrical load. In other cases, the electrical facility load exceeds generation. The generation can be made up of one or more turbine/generator sets.

Most of the time, these turbine/generator sets run in parallel with an electric utility to supply the facility’s electric power. However, in cases where the facility gets intentionally or unintentionally islanded from the utility, the island condition must be detected very quickly so the turbine/generator control systems can be notified. Upon detection of an island condition, the control system may need to switch operating modes for real and reactive power control.

This situation was present for a petrochemical refinery project. The site had multiple onsite turbine/generators. Automation systems were designed, bench-tested, installed, and field-tested to detect the island condition and notify the turbine/generator control system. The automation system was built using the existing protection systems, SCADA, and automation infrastructure along with a new automation controller. Information was shared between the Intelligent Electronic Devices using IEC 61850 GOOSE Messaging.

The presentation will discuss the project goals, engineering process, and testing of the system.

Statistics has a prominent role in SAR - Synthetic Aperture Radar image processing and analysis. More often than not, these data cannot be described by the usual additive Gaussian noise model. Rather than that, a multiplicative signal-dependent representation adequately models the observations. After summarizing the main distributions for both the univariate (intensity and amplitude) and multivariate (fully polarimetric) image formats, we present eight seemingly different problems, and how they can be formulated and solved in an unified manner from a statistical viewpoint using Information Theory and Information Geometry.

Abstract:

The rapid development of solid state lighting applications is driving the need for innovative approaches in LED packaging. While the majority of high-power emitters are still using conventional packaging methods, there are next-generation LED technologies and applications that requires integration of existing approaches with IC packaging knowhow. The LED industry is also driving low-cost solutions to the design, materials and processes in order to be market-competitive due to the emergence of LED suppliers in Asia, particularly in China. This talk will discuss the challenges in the LED integration structure from die to package, package to board and system, focusing in identifying challenges that need to be overcome in optical design, materials, and manufacturing processes. Comparison of similarities and opportunities in both LED and IC packaging will be discussed.

There has been much talk over the last few years about the perils of the use of artificial intelligence in virtually everything we touch. From our phones to our cars, and everything in between, artificial intelligence is an integral part of our existence. Many prominent people, like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, have warned about the potential for machines to take over and cause havoc in the lives and very existence of humans. Hollywood has made untold billions of dollars painting doom- and- gloom scenarios about artificial intelligence and robots within our society today and in the future. But what is the true reality? We continually push to create increasingly intelligent systems/machines that attempt to learn, think, and reason like humans. Therefore, our first question becomes, when presented with this challenge is:

Which types of people do we want robots to learn, think, and reason like?

Do you want a Stephen Hawking? Do you want a Charles Manson? Do you want any of a host of past or current world dictators? All these people learn and think and reason, but all of them do it very differently from one another. To say you want a system that learns, thinks, and reasons like people is to say you want to give the computer/robot the ability to self-adapt, to create (through experience and learning) an adult intelligence and capabilities that is people-like in nature. No matter which “version” of human thinking and reasoning is desirable, the main question to be asked is:

“How do we test it to know if the AI system is working correctly?”

The fundamental problem with testing learning, thinking, reasoning, artificial intelligent systems is:

“What does it mean for it to work correctly?”

Upon reviewing the limitations of classical system test theory and implementations, we begin to understand the conundrums of applying these well-known processes for testing AI systems. This presentation will explore the new world of “AI Psychology” to understand where we may or may not be headed as we continually improve upon artificial intelligence technologies.

Title:
Low Phase Noise Signal Generation Utilising Oscillators, Resonators & Filters and Atomic Clocks
Date:
October 13th
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
North Hollywood, CA
Abstract:

Oscillators are used in almost all consumer and professional electronic systems and the phase noise and jitter set the ultimate performance limit in navigation, communications and RADAR systems. It is therefore essential to develop simple accurate theories and design procedures to produce oscillators offering state of the art performance.

This talk will initially discuss the theory and design of a wide variety of oscillators offering the very best performance. Typically, this is achieved by splitting the oscillator design into its component parts and developing new amplifiers, resonators and phase shifters which offer high Q, high power handling and low thermal and transposed flicker noise.

Key features of oscillators offering the lowest phase noise available will be shown, for example: a 1.25GHz DRO produces -173dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset and a noise floor of -186dB and a 10 MHz crystal oscillator shows -123dBc/Hz at 1Hz and -149 at 10Hz.

New compact atomic clocks with ultra-low phase noise microwave synthesiser chains (with micro Hz resolution) will also be briefly described to demonstrate how the long-term stability can be improved.

New printed resonators (and thereby filters) demonstrate Qs exceeding 540 at 5GHz on PCBs and > 80 at 21GHz on GaAs MMICs. These resonators produce near zero radiation loss and therefore require no screening. L band 3D printed resonators demonstrate high Q (> 200) by selecting the standing wave pattern to ensure zero current through the via hole and new ultra-compact versions (4mm x 4mm) have been developed for use inside or underneath the package. Alumina based resonators demonstrating Qs >200,000 at X band have also been produced. Tunable versions (1%) have recently been developed.

As an academic, the aim is to produce the state of the art through insight and understanding, as well as to explain this to others. The author ran the first course on oscillators including a lab class at IMS 09. This was repeated in 2010, 2011. A battery powered lab kit offering 5 experiments with full theoretical and simulation support was provided. The kit also produced the state of the art performance with flicker noise corners around 200Hz. The methodology behind this course will be described. Theory and 5 experiments on the same day was part of the reason for success.

The next generation of oscillators will offer orders of magnitude improvement in performance. Our current attempts to do this will be described.

Title:
DUAL FREE LAYER SPIN TORQUE OSCILLATORS
Date:
October 13th
6:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
San Jose
Abstract:

Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR) is one of the key technologies with a potential for increasing recording densities up to 3 Tb/in2 [1]. A typical source of microwave AC field in the media is a Spin Torque Oscillator (STO), positioned in the gap between the main pole and trailing shield of the recording head [1], [2]. Basic STO design consists of two magnetic layers separated by a metallic non-magnetic spacer. In this work, a system of differential equations describing stability of a spin torque oscillator (STO) with two free layers is introduced. The system is derived from the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert (LLG) equation for two freely rotating magnetic moments interacting via spin torque. In the case of two free magnetic layers, the magnetization of each layer can precess at its own frequency, which is directly proportional to the local effective field in the layer. The spin torque depends on the relative angle between two layers. Therefore, if the magnetization in two magnetic layers rotate with different frequencies, the spin torque will vary in time. This can lead to instabilities of the precession angle in both layers. When two layers oscillate at equal frequencies, instabilities due to spin torque variations are eliminated. Requirement for the synchronization leads to a system of three differential equations for three unknowns. Stable oscillation orbits for each layer are obtained by finding fixed point solutions of the system. Results were confirmed using FEM micromagnetic simulations.

Title:
Evaluation of 3D Printed Soft Robots in Radiation Environments and Comparison With Molded Counterparts
Date:
October 12th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Robots have an important role during inspection, clean-up, and sample collection in unstructured radiation environments inaccessible to humans. The advantages of soft robots, such as body morphing, high compliance, and energy absorption during impact, make them suitable for operating under extreme conditions. Despite their promise, the usefulness of soft robots under a radiation environment has yet to be assessed. In this work, we evaluate the effectiveness of soft robots fabricated from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), a common fabrication material, under radiation for the first time. We investigated gamma-induced mechanical damage in the PDMS materials’ mechanical properties, including elongation, tensile strength, and stiffness. We selected three radiation environments from the nuclear industry to represent a wide range of radiation and then submerged a 3D printed hexapus robot into a radiation environment to estimate its operation time. Finally, to test the reliability of the 3D printed soft robots, we compared their performances with molded counterparts. To analyze performance results in detail, we also investigated dimensional errors and the effects of fabrication methods, nozzle size, and print direction on the stiffness of PDMS material. Results of this study show that with increasing exposure to gamma irradiation, the mechanical properties of PDMS decrease in functionality but are minimally impacted up to 20 kGy gamma radiation. Considering the fractional changes to the PDMS mechanical properties, it is safe to assume that soft robots could operate for 12 h in two of the three proposed radiation environments. We also verified that the 3D printed soft robots can perform better than or equal to their molded counterparts while being more reliable.

GeoNEX: Earth Observations from Operational Geostationary Satellite Systems

Abstract:

GeoNEX is a collaborative effort involving scientists from NASA, NOAA, JAXA/JMA, KMA/KARI to explore the feasibility of producing EOS-quality research products from operational geostationary satellite systems for climate monitoring. The latest generation of geostationary satellites (Himawari 8/9, GOES-16/17, Fengyun-4, GeoKompsat-2A) carry sensors that closely mimic the spatial and spectral characteristics of widely used polar-orbiting, global monitoring sensors such as MODIS and VIIRS. More importantly, they provide observations as frequently as 5-15 minutes. Data from various currently operating geostationary platforms provide a geo-ring of hyper-temporal, multispectral observations. Such high frequency observations, particularly when combined with data from polar orbiters, offer exciting possibilities for improving the retrieval of geophysical variables by overcoming cloud cover, enable studies of diurnally varying phenomena over land, in the atmosphere and the oceans, and help in operational decision-making in agriculture, hydrology and disaster management. This talk will highlight new research, data sets, algorithms and computational platforms that utilize data from geostationary satellites.

DC MICROGRIDS

 

A microgrid is an electrical distribution network consisted of distributed generators, local loads, and energy storage systems that can operate in grid-connected or islanded modes. Different technologies are combined together, such us power converters, control, communications, optimization, and so on.

This way the energy can be generated and stored near to the consumption points, improving the stability and reducing the losses produced by the large power lines. In distributed energy systems like microgrids, multi-agent systems technologies will be presented distributed control is a powerful tool for distributed. Previous experiences in the Danish electrical system like the Cell Controller project used these technologies to balance dispersed energy generation and consumption. Other examples of real sites including conventional islanded systems installed in islands and rural remote areas will be shown. Finally, low-voltage distribution systems and DC microgrids for residential applications and homes will be introduced. New worldwide projects to develop technologies for low voltage DC distribution systems will be shown.

Title:
SWIR and IR Methods for the Detection, Diagnosis and Selective Removal of Dental Decay
Date:
October 6th
6:00 PM (5 days)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

The optical properties of dental hard tissues at longer wavelengths in infrared can be exploited for the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic devices for use in dentistry. Dental enamel becomes highly transparent near 1300-nm and this wavelength is ideally suited for transillumination and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Stains on tooth surfaces do not interfere at wavelengths longer than 1200-nm allowing for demineralization to be detected under stains. At wavelengths longer than 1450-nm increased light absorption of water markedly increases the contrast of demineralization on tooth coronal and root surfaces. Devices operating at these longer wavelengths have demonstrated higher diagnostic performance than radiographs for the detection of dental decay. SWIR, and OCT imaging devices can also aid in the diagnosis of lesion severity and lesion activity through measurements of lesion microstructure and lesion permeability. Lasers operating in the IR most efficiently ablate dental hard tissues due to the strong absorption bands of water and mineral. SWIR light is well-suited for guiding these lasers for the highly selective removal of demineralization from tooth surfaces.

Communication Technologies for Emerging Low-Power Internet-of-Things Applications

Abstract: Emerging Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices for use in smart homes, wearable systems, industrial monitoring, smart cities, and beyond all require robust yet low-power wireless communications. Unfortunately, most current wireless standards do not intrinsically support low-power operation due to strict requirements on modulation formats, data rates, linearity, packet overheads, and so on. These restrictions impose minimum power consumption requirements for cellular standards (e.g., GSM, LTE, and 5G) and WiFi, but also surprisingly limit the ability of supposedly low-power standards (e.g., Bluetooth Low Energy and Narrowband-IoT) from reaching new application-enabling power levels. This presentation will outline the major challenges facing power reduction in modern wireless systems, and will describe several possible solutions to these challenges. Specifically, we will explore the use of wake-up receivers as a means to reduce the power overhead of between-node synchronization, including a look at a recent design operating at 9GHz. Then, we will discuss a variety of alternative communication schemes that can help to reduce the power of communication in WiFi and body-area-network systems by >1,000x through use of WiFi-compliant backscatter communication and magnetic human body communication systems, respectively. We will then introduce new circuit design techniques based on a topologically-derived “digitally-replaced analog” paradigm towards the implementation of efficient Li-ion-battery-connected RF power amplifiers for high-performance wireless systems.

Abstract: Temporal logic is a mathematical language for describing the properties of computer and dynamical systems, and has found wide use in the verification and control of cyber-physical systems. It is obtained by adding temporal modalities to classical boolean logic. In this work we seek to re-cast temporal logic and its various uses as "just another signal processing operation", which is essential for the study of Cyber-Physical Systems. Specifically, we ask: What is the frequency content of temporal logic formulas? That is, when we monitor a signal against a formula, which frequency bands of the signal are relevant to the logic, and which can be safely discarded? To answer this question, we focus on monitors that measure the robustness of a signal relative to a specification in Signal Temporal Logic. We prove that robustness monitors can be modeled using Volterra series. We then study the Fourier transforms of these Volterra representations, and provide a method to derive the Fourier transforms of entire formulas. Experiments illustrate these results. Beyond compression, this work enables a common formalism to study both logical and non-logical operations in the frequency domain, which we refer to as Logical Signal Processing. 

Speaker Bio: Houssam Abbas received the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Arizona State University. From 2006 to 2014, he worked as a CAD engineer in the SoC Verification Group in Intel. In that role, he developed software tools and methods for SoC verification and testing, including formal verification and coverage-based testing, and for the verification of low-power digital designs. In 2015 he joined the ESE department at the University of Pennsylvania as a research postdoc. While at Penn, he co-lead the F1/10 autonomous racing effort which has grown into an international competition. He also developed a semester-long hands-on class to build, program, and race self-driving cars, with all material at f1tenth.org. In January 2019, Houssam joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University as an assistant professor.

Title:
SAC Meeting with OIT SB leaders
Date:
September 29th
6:30 PM (0 minute)
Abstract:

The SAC met with the OIT branch counselor and the newly elected student branch leaders. At the beginning of the meeting, there was a formal introduction by all the meeting attendees.

The meeting had 6 people in attendance namely; Ugonna Chikezie (SAC), Eve Klopf, Matt Volpe, Michael Duncan, Jake Eggspuehler, Raed Alturaif. 

We had a very productive meeting and I was able to answer all the questions raised by the SB and also encouraged them to keep up the good work and to recruit more student members to the SB.

I also reminded them of their unclaimed rebate for 2020 and they promised to reach out to claim the rebate soon. I also related to them the various resources that they have in IEEE especially those working on research as they have access to several research papers from IEEE website and IEEEXPLORE.

Again, I encouraged them to come up with good projects in line with IEEE requirement  that will invlove a good number of the student branch members as they can qualify for the funding of that project by the section.

On a general note, it was a productive meeting as they let me leave they meeting so that they can delibrate on other internal issues. They were happy to have someone from the section come and clarify certain some doubts especially for the newly elected leaders.

Title:
How to Start a Local IEEE Consultants Network
Date:
September 26th
8:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Washington, DC
Abstract:

Have you ever considered branching out and becoming an independent consultant? With the onset of COVID-19 and the ensuing job loss we believe more people are considering consulting. In addition to those IEEE members affected by COVID, there are over 3000 members in Regions 1-6 subscribed to our IEEE Consultants Network service. This shows that there is strong interest from members across IEEE in learning about becoming an independent consultant.

The Alliance of IEEE Consultants' Networks Coordinating Committee's (AICNCC) main way of educating IEEE members on consulting is through the establishment of local consultant networks/affinity groups. So the AICNCC is inviting all members interested in consulting to attend our webinar “How to Start an IEEE local Consultants Network” on 26 September 2020 at 11:00 AM EDT. The presenter is past IEEE-USA President Gary Blank. Over the years, Gary has participated in the start of several consultants networks. The webinar will focus on:

  • Getting Started/Gathering Support
  • Meeting Topics
  • Becoming an Affinity Group
Title:
Using Python as a Tool to Create Fine Art
Date:
September 25th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Los Angeles, CA
Abstract:

Python is a very powerful software language that is used extensively in science and engineering applications. It has a wealth of powerful and flexible libraries.


In this presentation, Paul Anderson will describe how he has used Python to generate multi-layered photographic mosaics from a reference digital image. The generating algorithm is a stand-alone Python script which makes use of the numpy package for array processing, the Python Imaging Library (PIL) for image processing, and the scipy package for multi-dimensional array searches. The heart of the algorithm uses a resample-and-search technique.

A multi-layered mosaic produced by the algorithm is typically assembled in a 3D modeling application, and then combined with other graphic elements to create the final piece of art.
