IEEE South East Michigan Section Computer Society presents:

An Introduction to Data Science

AboutData Science is the study of the generalizable extraction of knowledge from data. Being a data scientist requires an integrated skill set spanning mathematics, statistics, machine learning, databases and other branches of computer science along with a good understanding of the craft of problem formulation to engineer elective solutions. This short lecture will introduce you to this rapidly growing field and introduce some of its basic principles and tools as well as its general mindset.

Speaker: Sharan Kalwani

Speaker Bio: With over 30+ years’ experience, in various aspects of the way hardware, software has evolved, you can expect a unique perspective on the whole evolution of data science. The speaker has presented at numerous conferences and is viewed as an active evangelist in his areas of expertise.

Date: 22nd Feb 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.

IEEE Young Professionals, Windsor Section presents:

Towards Skill Transfer via Learning-Based Guidance: Adaptive Haptic Guidance
for Virtual Reality based Training

Abstract: This talk presents an overview in the recent work on gesture-based haptic guidance for physical humanrobot interaction (pHRI) that can be used in virtual minimally invasive surgery (MIS) training. An approach in which the knowledge and experience of experts have been modeled and used to improve the unpredictable motions of novice trainees. Two statistical models, hidden Markov model (HMM) and hidden Conditional Random Fields (HCRF), have been used to train gesture models for a virtual MIS related task.

Speaker: Dr. Mehrdad H. Zadeh, Associate Professor Kettering University

Speaker Bio: Dr. Zadeh is an associate professor and an advisor of Auto Drive Challenge™ competition at Kettering University, MI. From Sept. 2015 to January 2017, he served as a visiting associate professor at Johns Hopkins University, Laboratory for Computational Sensing + Robotics (LCSR), MD, where he collaborates on the design and development of haptic-enabled surgical simulation.

IEEE Windsor Section presents “Radiation Hardened CMOS Circuits

Abstract: Soft errors have long plagued the semiconductor field, first showing up in space applications and later in terrestrial applications. Technology scaling and low-voltage/low-power requirements are further exacerbating the occurrence of soft errors in nano-scale circuits. A soft error occurs when charge generated by energetic particles is collected by reverse-biased junctions. In this talk, we will review the background and highlight recent research done at the University of Waterloo on circuit techniques to mitigate soft errors.

Speaker: Dr. Manoj Sachdev, Professor University of Waterloo

Speaker Bio: Manoj Sachdev is a professor in electrical and computer engineering department at the University of Waterloo. His research interests include low-power and high-performance circuit design, reliability and manufacturing issues of nano-metric integrated circuits.
