Why I'm an IEEE Member

I continue my IEEE membership because it makes a difference!  It makes a difference for me as a professional engineer and also for the world as a whole.
 
For myself being an IEEE member allows:
me to be an engineer rather than just doing an engineer job,
stay connected with the changes in my technical area, and
stay connected with others outside of my current job for career opportunities.
 
For the world:
support technology development (i.e. standards and technical publications) for humanity,
support the technology based humanitarian projects IEEE members are doing around the world, and
creating a future for future generations to live into though math and science education.
 
I continue my IEEE membership because it matters.

Free eBook from IEEE USA to IEEE Members
Part two of the trilogy, “A Living Resume--Vol. 2: Documenting Your Writings, Awards and Honors” emphasizes the power such special recognitions can have in furthering your career.
 
Author Harry Roman advises documenting them in your living resume--not sweeping them into a corner. He says such documentation should be carefully itemized and detailed. Companies like to see what characterizes the professional side of the engineers they are considering to hire.
 
"If there is a major activity all employers like to see, it is someone who knows the value of continuous education," Roman says. "Our globally competitive, fast-paced, unforgiving world demands that everyone stay up-to-date, or be left behind."
 
The appendices offers readers a valuable list of eight critical workplace skills. These include, among others, analyzing information, converting it into knowledge, selling new ideas to management, and communicating concepts clearly and succinctly.
 
Now through 15 October, IEEE members can get a free download of Roman’s “A Living Resume--Vol. 2: Documenting Your Writings, Awards and Honors.”
 
Simply go to http://shop.ieeeusa.org/usashop/product/careers/73318. Log in with your IEEE Web account, add the book to your cart and use promo code SEPTFREE16 at checkout.
 
OCTOBER FREE E-BOOK
 
In October, IEEE-USA E-BOOKS will offer “Shaping an Engineering Career--Book 3/Vol. 2: Advancing to Management.”

Austin Number One For Highest Paying Tech Salaries
A new report, issued by Indeed.com, says that Austin is actually the number one market for the highest paying tech salaries in the nation. The report says that, after adjusting for the cost of living, tech jobs in Austin actually are better than those in San Francisco, due to low rental costs. Indeed said its survey found that, although the average tech salary in San Francisco was $108,000, median rent was an astounding $3,357 a month--or, 37 percent of salary. In Austin, although the overall salary was lower--an average annual salary of $87,700--median rents are only $1,693, or merely 23 percent of that salary. Due to that big disparity in costs, Indeed's report put Austin as the number one market in the nation for tech pay. Austin is tenth if ranked purely by average salary. Read more  . . .

New technologies will replace smart phones & bring the digital world in front of us. Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality have made it possible
Since Nokia launched its Nokia 9000 Communicator , the first actual smart phone driven by an Intel 386 CPU in 1996, mobile phones have been seen more of what businessmen are using, rather they became something we all need. Since then, smart phones manufacturing companies worked continuously in adding new technologies and features to their phones. Instead of just being able make a call, text, take a photo or video, smart phones, would do so much more . The significant reasons for the success of smartphones over the years beside their ease of use, advanced functionality and beautiful design, were and still their ability to run well, naturally used, and the ability to work well with other companies apps.

Unfortunately, there are signs that smartphones will be replaced by new technologies such as smart speakers, and stylish sunglasses that will bring the digital world in front of our faces. People don’t want to pull out their phones any more to look up things or send emails, and many of us do not like the idea of continuously carrying them. As a substitute, we are expecting to use new smart devices that can work more naturally, use intelligent assistance to decrease the requirement to touch screens. We want virtual technologies for our everyday activities such as three dimensional food printing, movies that play around us, virtual tech support, and virtual headsets for sports, video meetings, and we want to interact with our home appliances and with the world around us by living in the moment more than watching video.

This way of interacting would be possible with only an Artificial Intelligence interface that will browse the web for us, and answer our questions. And with a virtual reality that reproduces our surroundings and simulates our physical presence at that environment in a way that allows us to interact with it.
Amazon artificially intelligent smart speaker is a good example of what we are expecting now. Amazon smart speakers or Echo as Amazon branded them was introduce to the world in November 2014, and sold in the market by June 2015. Echo is smart wireless and voice command speaker similar to Apple’s Siri with a lot of clever features. It consists of a 9.25-inch cylinder with seven microphones and has the ability to provide real time data and controls several other smart devices by acting as a home automation hub with just voice instructions. Echo connects to Alexa, a wake up command name that can be re programmed to provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more instantly.

Smart glasses or augmented glasses are  virtual reality example and were first launched by Google in April 2012 and in a year later, Google Glass were available in the market. Smart augmented glasses are capable of overlays sounds, image, video, GPS information or any computer generated material into our view of the real world. They comprise of pair of glasses, a surface for the glasses to scan, adjustable camera, motion sensor, microphone, compass and projectors. They work by projecting images at high resolution to the transparent eyeglasses, allowing us to watch videos, play sports, and navigate and plenty more without losing sight of the physical world around us.

With the grow of the visual information technology around us, the inventors have been trying and will continue to create socially accepted and affordable smart devices that can be used in all aspects of life. It is a matter of time when we just wear augmented glasses and the entire world is right in front of us.

Tips, Tools and Gadgets

First, let me remind all of you that Software Freedom Day is coming up on Saturday September 17. Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an annual worldwide celebration of Free Software. SFD is a public education effort with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and encouraging its use.

While I have never really participated in this celebration, September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. So get out your eye patches and culasses. 

Lastly, but by no means least, September 22 is celebrated as Hobbit Day. Why? Because that day is recognized as the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two fictional characters in J. R. R. Tolkien's popular set of books The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Getting back to things relevant to IEEE, the annual IEEE Day will be celebrated on Tuesday October 4. As Leslie indicated in her Chair column above, stay tuned for further information as to how CTS will be celebrating.

The WWW celebrated its 25 birthday early last month. We think of the Web as being so much of everyday life now. It is hard to think in terms of not having it available.

What will we think in another 25 years? How will Automation, AI, spaceflight, wearables, etc. evolve over the next 25 years? What will seem everyday then that is cutting edge now? As the futurist and Science Fiction author Arthur C Clarke stated in his third law "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

What will be the "magic' of 2041?

If you have comments, or suggestions as to something I should mention in a future issue, please let me know at john.purvis@ieee.org.  I look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.

TECHNICAL PROGRAM

Cloaking and Invisibility Using Metamaterials and Metasurfaces
By Professor Andrea Alù, University of Texas at Austin
In this lecture, Professor Alu will discuss his recent progress and research activity in using metamaterial covers to suitably tailoring the scattering of passive objects, drastically suppressing their overall detectability. He will focus on two approaches his department has pioneered in the past years, the plasmonic cloaking and the mantle cloaking techniques, respectively, based on bulk plasmonic metamaterials and ultrathin metasurfaces.  He will show the theoretical concepts at the basis of these approaches and the experimental results at radio-waves, which represent the first experimental verification of cloaking for 3D free-standing objects.  Professor Alu will also discuss advanced concepts, such as the ultimate bounds on realizing ‘invisible sensors’, the general bounds and potentials of cloaking and invisibility on bandwidth and overall scattering reduction, and ways to overcome these limitations using active, non-Foster cloaks.

Introduction to Anechoic Chambers
By Mr. Zhong Chen, ETS-Lindgren
This presentation provides an overview of the RF/microwave absorbers and their use in the optimized designs of anechoic chambers.  A brief theoretical background and measurement methods are introduced on the absorbers and chamber designs.  Measurement techniques on the absorbers and chambers are discussed, including the free-space VSWR method.  The free-space VSWR is the most widely used method for measuring the performance of an anechoic chamber.  Its test procedure and theory are introduced.  Further discussions are provided on various chamber design considerations and the use of absorbers to enhance the performances of an anechoic chamber.

Collaborative Beamforming from Swarming UAS
By Professor Gregory Huff, Texas A&M University
Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), otherwise known as drones or UAVs, have become indispensable tools in security, entertainment, and research but we are just beginning to understand their collective capabilities in unstructured swarms and clusters.   This presentation will focus on the development of MEDUSA, which is a computer vision-assisted phased array controller that was engineered to study the behavior of unstructured volumetric arrays in morphing clusters.  A review will be provided of the pioneering research into the development of experimental test-beds, analysis tools, and reconfigurable antenna technologies developed to study the behavior of these unique systems-of-systems.

NOTE:  These speakers will participate in the 38th Annual Symposium of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) in Austin, Texas over October 30 – November 4, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Austin.  For more information, see http://www.amta2016.org

Students will be able to tour vendor exhibits, sit in on papers, and enjoy a free lunch AND dinner while listening to a presentation targeting issues relevant to those about to enter the engineering profession. In addition, AMTA will host a hands-on Student Day Design Contest. This will give students an opportunity to show off their engineering skills to recruiters (they should bring their resumes) and have fun at the same time.

On Wednesday, November 2, IEEE members are welcome to attend the exhibition only at no charge.  Exhibit hall passes are $45, but November 2 is IEEE FREE DAY (you must present your IEEE membership card upon arrival). 

Join us at AMTA 2016!  For more information, see http://www.amta2016.org or contact Janet O’Neil at j.n.oneil@ieee.org

Topic/Title

Machine Type Communications for Internet of Things – Recent advances and future possibilities

Speaker

Prof. Jäntti Riku, Head of the department of Communications and Networking at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, Finland

Riku Jäntti (M’02 - SM’07) is an Associate Professor (tenured) in Communications Engineering and the head of the department of Communications and Networking at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, Finland. He received his M.Sc (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering in 1997 and D.Sc (with distinction) in Automation and Systems Technology in 2001, both from Helsinki University of Technology (TKK). Prior to joining Aalto (formerly known as TKK) in August 2006, he was professor pro tem at the Department of Computer Science, University of Vaasa. Prof. Jäntti is a senior member of IEEE and associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He is also a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.  The research interests of Prof. Jäntti include radio resource control  and optimization for machine type communications, Cloud based Radio Access Networks,  spectrum and co-existence management and RF Inference.

Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects ‘things’. The connectivity requirements of the things depend heavily on the application. In this talk, we focus on the use cases that require low power consumption, long battery life, and are characterized by low duty cycle and massive number of low cost devices. This talk is divided into two parts. In the first part, we focus on Narrowband IoT system for low power cellular connectivity, and in the second part, we discuss ambient re-scatter communications that allow extreme low power short range connectivity.

Narrowband IoT (NB-IOT) is a recent 3GPPP standard that specifies narrow band low power long range connectivity for machine type communications (MTC). NB-IOT is non-backwards compliant version of LTE that has been optimized for MTC applications. It supports three modes of operation: standalone mode utilizing a GSM carrier, guard band mode utilizing resource blocks within a LTE carrier’s guradband and in-band mode utilizing resource blocks within a normal LTE carrier. Operators can start using NB-IOT on their own frequency bands simply by updating the base station software making NB-IOT deployment easy. Besides the standard cellular MTC use cases, NB-IOT could potentially be used for other types of IoT connectivity applications as well.  In this talk we will present a software defined radio based implementation of NB-IOT and discuss the system performance. We will also discuss the possible use cases of such an extreme light weight low cost base station implementation.

Even though NB-IOT is very low power radio, its power consumption still may exceed the capabilities of ultra-low power senor systems relaying on energy harvesting. The radio transceiver is one of the most energy hangry components of the IoT devices. In RFID systems, the reader transmits an unmodulated carrier signal that gets reflected and modulated from the RFID tag. The RFID tag itself does not need transceiver. It modulated the carrier by changing its reflection coefficient (impedance) which only requires a simple switching action. In ambient re/backscatter systems, the tag or sensor devices, modulated and re-scatters a modulated signal that is utilized by some other (primary) system for communications. The receiver of the primary communication link could try to demodulate both the original (primary) signal and the signal superimposed by the re-scatter devices. We show that such a bistatic re-scatter system can increase overall channel capacity and the excess capacity can be divided between the original communication link and the re-scatter system. That is, sensor information can be read from the devices with almost zero energy cost without interfering with the ongoing data transmission.

Topic/Title Challenges of Cloud Computing and What is Next?
Speaker Ayad Barsoum, PhD of St. Mary's University

Ayad Barsoum is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at St.Mary's University, San Antonio, Texas. He is also the graduate program director of the MS in Cybersecurity at St.Mary's University. Dr. Barsoum received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo (UW), Ontario, Canada in 2013. He is a member of the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research at UW.
Dr. Barsoum has received the Amazon Web Services in Education Faculty Grant for funding his research and teaching activities. At the University of Waterloo, he has received the Graduate Research Studentship, the International Doctoral Award, and the University of Waterloo Graduate Scholarship.
Dr. Barsoum received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. He was awarded the Ain Shams University Scholarship of Excellence four times.

His main research interests include: data integrity in cloud computing systems, information and network security, access control and cryptographic protocols, knowledge discovery and data mining
Abstract Cloud computing (CC) is a distributed computational model over a large pool of shared-virtualized computing resources (e.g., storage, processing power, memory, applications, services, and network bandwidth), where customers are provisioned and de-provisioned recourses as they need. This computing paradigm represents a vision of providing computing services as public utilities like water and electricity. The architecture of cloud computing can be split in two: front-end and back-end. The front-end represents cloud customers, organizations, or applications (e.g., web browsers) that use the cloud services. The back-end is a huge network of data centers with many different applications, system programs, and data storage systems.

Recently, CC has received considerable attention due to a number of key advantages: cost effectiveness, low management overhead, immediate access to a wide range of applications, flexibility to scale up and down information technology (IT) capacity, and mobility where customers can access information wherever they are, rather than having to remain at their desks.
Although CC has received much attention from research communities in academia as well as industry, there are many challenges facing cloud computing to be widely deployed and used. The main challenge is security, which is related to infrastructure and data.

In this talk, we investigate major challenges that may hinder the broad use of cloud computing, namely, data confidentiality, data integrity, availability, computational integrity, authentication, and auditing. In addition, we provide some perspectives and methodologies that can be used to mitigate the risks associated with cloud services. Furthermore, we highlight some open research issues that need to be investigated and tackled to achieve the wide acceptance and usage of outsourcing data storage.

Abstract We discuss the growth of wind in Texas and the challenges to electricity system operation under high levels of wind. We observe that Texas has, by far, the highest wind penetration of the three interconnections in the United States and the highest penetration of any balancing area, so that Texas is a microcosm of high wind challenges. To understand some of the challenges, we describe statistical modeling of wind power production. We utilize a so-called generalized dynamic factor model and investigate the characteristic Kolmogorov spectrum of wind power. This modeling allows understanding of the manner in which wind power and wind power variability will scale with increased capacity. We observe that aggregation of large amounts of wind capacity across large areas of the United States will mitigate short-term variability, but generally will not completely ameliorate intermittency over longer time scales. We then describe implications for the electricity system and for organized wholesale markets, including commitment of thermal resources to meet net load, and zero and negative wholesale prices.

Machine Type Communications for Internet of Things – Recent advances and future possibilities

Speaker

Prof. Jäntti Riku, Head of the department of Communications and Networking at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, Finland

Riku Jäntti (M’02 - SM’07) is an Associate Professor (tenured) in Communications Engineering and the head of the department of Communications and Networking at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, Finland. He received his M.Sc (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering in 1997 and D.Sc (with distinction) in Automation and Systems Technology in 2001, both from Helsinki University of Technology (TKK). Prior to joining Aalto (formerly known as TKK) in August 2006, he was professor pro tem at the Department of Computer Science, University of Vaasa. Prof. Jäntti is a senior member of IEEE and associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He is also a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.  The research interests of Prof. Jäntti include radio resource control  and optimization for machine type communications, Cloud based Radio Access Networks,  spectrum and co-existence management and RF Inference.

Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects ‘things’. The connectivity requirements of the things depend heavily on the application. In this talk, we focus on the use cases that require low power consumption, long battery life, and are characterized by low duty cycle and massive number of low cost devices. This talk is divided into two parts. In the first part, we focus on Narrowband IoT system for low power cellular connectivity, and in the second part, we discuss ambient re-scatter communications that allow extreme low power short range connectivity.

Narrowband IoT (NB-IOT) is a recent 3GPPP standard that specifies narrow band low power long range connectivity for machine type communications (MTC). NB-IOT is non-backwards compliant version of LTE that has been optimized for MTC applications. It supports three modes of operation: standalone mode utilizing a GSM carrier, guard band mode utilizing resource blocks within a LTE carrier’s guradband and in-band mode utilizing resource blocks within a normal LTE carrier. Operators can start using NB-IOT on their own frequency bands simply by updating the base station software making NB-IOT deployment easy. Besides the standard cellular MTC use cases, NB-IOT could potentially be used for other types of IoT connectivity applications as well.  In this talk we will present a software defined radio based implementation of NB-IOT and discuss the system performance. We will also discuss the possible use cases of such an extreme light weight low cost base station implementation.

Even though NB-IOT is very low power radio, its power consumption still may exceed the capabilities of ultra-low power senor systems relaying on energy harvesting. The radio transceiver is one of the most energy hangry components of the IoT devices. In RFID systems, the reader transmits an unmodulated carrier signal that gets reflected and modulated from the RFID tag. The RFID tag itself does not need transceiver. It modulated the carrier by changing its reflection coefficient (impedance) which only requires a simple switching action. In ambient re/backscatter systems, the tag or sensor devices, modulated and re-scatters a modulated signal that is utilized by some other (primary) system for communications. The receiver of the primary communication link could try to demodulate both the original (primary) signal and the signal superimposed by the re-scatter devices. We show that such a bistatic re-scatter system can increase overall channel capacity and the excess capacity can be divided between the original communication link and the re-scatter system. That is, sensor information can be read from the devices with almost zero energy cost without interfering with the ongoing data transmission.
