IEEE Computer Society SE Michigan Chapter & Oakland University IEEE Student Branch presents:

“Fixing the Data Transfer TCP/IP protocol problem over WAN”

Abstract: These days – we all collaborate and share massive amounts of data over the Wide Area Network (aka Internet sometimes) which runs using the robust TCP/IP protocol. Yet despite that, moving data is a major problem which challenges many engineers, development teams, global design groups, corporate enterprises and academic researchers.

Enabling the fastest movement of data and files over any type of WAN using the industry standard TCP-IP, irrespective of distance and variations in network conditions. Bridgeworks have looked at the problem of data movement and come at it from an entirely new perspective. Bridgeworks has several solutions which deliver the highest WAN Data Transfer speeds. What is interesting is that they seem to be able to provide consistent accelerated outcomes across all data types including encrypted, encoded, compresses or any combination thereof. In mastering the rules of data movement over distance, Bridge works have now broken them to provide you with the ability to move significant volumes of business-critical data in real time removing unacceptable time lags, that risk failure, delay or presents major costs to your business.

Speaker: Nigel Lambert

IEEE Computer Society SE Michigan Chapter & Oakland University IEEE Student Branch presents:

“Building the World’s Fastest File System: Weka.IO”

Abstract: For decades, folks all over the world who use computing to solve problems or conduct business, have had to grapple (near physical wrestle) with problems relating to solving the data storage issues. From demands of all end users (scientists, engineers, business, students, government, etc.) – all of them require fast access to the data, growing sizes of data, ever wide variety or type of data: text, databases, video, audio, graphic images, etc.  IT folks have struggled to make this an easy thing but without much success.

There is a new kid on the block – with the name of Weka.IO(ask them how they came up with that name), which seems to have addressed this in an innovative manner. Created by the original founders of storage sold by IBM – they have used their experience to vastly improve many of the old issues, IT leaders, analysts, support persons, automotive engineers struggling to save all that data from those Self Driving vehicles, data capture systems, etc., all will benefit from checking this out. Weka.IO has built the world’s fastest parallel file system, designed to solve the performance challenger in AI deep learning and technical computing.

Speaker: Tony Raleigh

About Speaker: Mr. Raleigh graduated from Oakland University back in 1998. His specialities include Customer relations, system engineering, system administration, technical support, and maintaining a positive attitude.

IEEE Young Professionals, Windsor Section presents

“Positive Control and Estimation of Dynamic Systems with Applications”

Abstract: Positive systems are rapidly gaining more attention and popularity due to their appearance in numerous applications. The response of positive systems to positive initial conditions and inputs remains in the positive orthant of state space. They offer nice robust stability properties which can be applied to solve many control and estimation problems not only for positive systems but also for general dynamic systems with positivity constraints. This talk will give an overview of positive systems and provide variety of models having positivity behaviors. Several illustrative examples with simulation results support the theoretical development.
