Technical Talk

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, University of Windsor presents:

Wearable Sensing for Behavioral/Physiological Monitoring

Speaker: DrOmid Dehzangi, Assistant Professor Computer and Information Science, Univ of Michigan

Speaker Bio: Omid Dehzangi received B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Shiraz University. He also received his Ph.D. degree from the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang Technological University.Omid Dehzangi is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at University of Michigan-Dearborn. His research interests lie broadly in the area of wearable embedded systems, their signal processing and data analytics algorithm design with the emphasis on medical applications.

About the Topic: Wearable health technology is drawing significant attention for good reasons. The pervasive nature of such systems providing ubiquitous access to information will transform the way people interact with each other and their environment. The resulting information extracted from these systems will enable emerging applications in healthcare, wellness, emergency response, fitness monitoring, elderly care support, long-term preventive chronic care, assistive care, smart environments, sports, gaming, and entertainment which create many new research opportunities and transform researches from various disciplines. Despite the ground-breaking potentials, there are a number of interesting challenges in order to design and develop wearable medical embedded systems.

Technical Talk

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

IEEE Young Professionals Windsor Section presents:

“Optimisation-Based Control of Nonlinear Processes

About the Topic:A major trend in industry over the last 40 years has been employing constrained mathematical optimisation techniques to compute control actions that optimise a quadratic objective function with its minimum at a process steady-state, subject to linear or nonlinear process models and practical constraints such as bounds on flow rates due to valve limitations. These optimisation-based control designs (referred to as model predictive control or MPC) are typically implemented within a two-layer architecture.

Speaker: Dr. Helen Elaine Durand, Professor Wayne State University

Speaker Bio: She received her B.S.,  M.S.  and her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from UCLA in 2017. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Wayne State University. Her research interests are in the general area of process systems engineering with a focus on process optimisation and control, process operational safety and computational modelling.

Date: 19th October 2017

Time: 12 PM to 1:30 PM EST/EDT

Location: Room 3000, CEI, University of Windsor. 401 Sunset Avenue, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. N9B 3P4
