Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

IEEE Young Professionals Windsor Section presents:

How Machine Learning Helps Find Relevant Biomarkers in Cancer”

About the Topic:Machine learning, a field of artificial intelligence, has been successfully used for data analysis in many different applications, including transcriptomics, cancer research, life science, finance, and many others. Biotechnological tools for next generation sequencing has produced very large datasets which are difficult to analyze without the help of specialized learning algorithms.In this talk, machine learning approaches for finding relevant
transcripts and potential proteins associated with cancer diagnosis, prognosis and treatment will be discussed. Some
results and interpretation of biomarkers in prostate cancer progression and scoring will be presented.

Speaker: Dr. Luis Rueda, Professor Univ of Windsor School of Computer Science

Speaker Bio: His research interests are mainly focused on theoretical and applied machine learning and pattern recognition, mostly in the fields of transcriptomics, interactomics and genomics with applications to cancer research.

Annual IEEE WIE Session

Monday, April 24th, 2017

The IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Windsor is pleased to invite everybody to the annual IEEE WIE Session at the 30th IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE’17)!

This year, the conference is going to take place in Windsor and will include a special WIE session on supporting women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields.

When: 3:50-5:20 PM, May 1st, 2017

Where: Caesars Hotel, Windsor, Ontario.

Our honourable speakers will inclusively address men in the audience and will bring a female perspective on important topics, such and support, communications, leadership, and diversity. Studies show that, although equal education opportunities are provided for both genders nowadays and more female enrolment is recorded in post-secondary education, women are still significantly underrepresented in STEM fields and are more likely to leave STEM jobs after graduation than men. Not only this indicates an evident gender gap in STEM professions, but it also means that the full potential which comes from diversity to drive STEM fields forward is not utilised. We strongly believe that under representation of women in STEM fields, and in Engineering particularly, is not a problem of women alone and men play a big role in female entry to and retention at these fields. Men are also an important and valuable part of WIE group as it is opened to everyone who supports women in engineering.

Join us for this event and you will learn about the key gender differences in the workplace and how to attract women to and support their retention at STEM professions, thus creating stronger teams and better, more diverse, and sustainable future for these fields. Together we can achieve more!

Technical Talk

Monday, April 24th, 2017

IEEE Joint Chapter Circuit and Systems and Computer Society jointly presents:

SaSy design: A healthcare, an industrial, and a system-on-chip example

About the Topic:

Self-aware System (SaSy) design refers to methods for designing systems which monitor their own state and that of their environment to adjust their behaviour and improve their performance. To design SaSys, a designer needs to consider enhancing the system with means to obtain information about available resources within the system, relevant environmental conditions, expectations, current goals, and priorities. The system also needs to be able to make decisions and react accordingly, to meet its requirements and achieve its objectives.

Speaker: Nima Taheri Nejad, University Assistant at TU  Wien, Vienna, and a Ph.D. graduate of UBC, Vancouver.

Speaker Bio: 

Dr. Taheri Nejad has authored a book and published in/served as a reviewer for various journals and conferences. He also served as the chair and secretary (public relations) in a number of robotic competitions and as the chair of the Auto21 HQP Advisory Committee and a member of its Board of Directors.Currently, his main areas of focus are Self-awareness in Cyber-Physical Systems, Embedded Systems, Systems on Chip, Healthcare and Robotics.

Technical talk

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

IEEE Young Professionals and Women in Engineering, Windsor Section jointly presents:

Applications of Data fusion techniques in Industrial Control

About the Topic: Performance assessment and condition monitoring are important steps toward optimisation design of control loops. To provide better understanding of a given scene or process with less uncertainties could be achieved using data fusion approaches. Information/data Fusion is the merging technology which deals with the synergistic combination of data made available by various knowledge sources such as sensors. The use of sensor/data fusion concept has advantages such as “Redundancy”, “Complementary”, “Timeliness” and “Less Costly Information” which will be addressed.

Speaker: Dr. Behzad Moshiri, Adjunct Professor in Electrical Engineering at University of Waterloo

Speaker Bio: Behzad Moshiri received his B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) in 1984 and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in control systems engineering from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), U.K. in 1987 and 1991 respectively. Dr. Moshiri has been as adjunct professor in department of electrical and computer engineering at university of Waterloo since 2014.

His fields of research include mechatronics, automation, advanced industrial control design, smart sensing system design, broad spread of applications of “sensor/data fusion” as well as “information fusion” concepts in mechatronics, process control, robotics, information technology, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering and intelligent transportation systems.
