A talk on AI (Artificial Intelligence) titled “Managing the development of AI and Machines that learn” presented by the CEO of nuenergy.ai, Niraj Bhargava.

Abstract:

It is widely acknowledged that AI technology will
transform organizations and society around the globe – and with recent
advancements in processing power, data accessibility, and algorithms we
suddenly find ourselves at the beginning of this transformation.
Introducing the Machine Trust Index (MTI), assisting us to boldly
proceed with a responsible, innovative spirit. The goal of the MTI is to
establish an open and versatile framework for measuring and managing
trust in the evolving sphere of AI. The MTI provides measurable
evidence, transparency and accountability of an AI solution, allowing
providers to effectively communicate the value of their solutions as
well as their measurable trustworthiness.

Introduction to IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1! @ 4359 Mackenzie Building
May 21 @ 18:00 – 19:30
Introduction to IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1! @ 4359 Mackenzie Building | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

Why should you attend?

 

·      Data analytics is a priority for many organizations

·      Many jobs now call for some level of analytic
knowledge

·      Storytelling with data will soon become a “must
have” skill

 

What is Cognos Analytics?

 

“IBM® Cognos® Analytics integrates data preparation,
reporting, modeling, self-service analysis, dashboards, stories, event
management and now automated predictive analytics into one stack. Moreover, the
latest release makes extensive use of AI, including machine learning, natural
language processing (NLP) and natural language generation (NLG), in order to
automate as many features for the end user as possible, in an effort to make
BI, analytics and predictive analysis easy for business users.”

 

About the speaker:

Mohammed Omar Khan is an Offering Manager on the IBM Cognos
Analytics. He works with the development, design, sales, marketing, support and
more teams to make Cognos Analytics a leader in the BI market. He is a Carleton
University Alumni. Some of his achievements include 2nd place in Data Day 5.0
Poster Competition held at Carleton University, IBM VP Award, and IBM Managers
Choice Award

IEEE Ottawa Seminar Series on AI and Machine Learning

Hosted by IEEE Ottawa PHO Chapter, EMBS Chapter, CS Chapter, and SP Chapter Jointly with Vitesse Reskilling

Application of
Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

359 Terry Fox Drive, Suite 200, Kanata, Ontario

11:30 – 13:30

—————————————————————-

Medical imaging, (e.g., computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), mammography, ultrasound,
X-ray) has advanced at a rapid speed over last decades. Currently, the medical
image interpretation is mostly performed by human experts, which is a tedious
task and subject to high inter-operator variability. Deep learning is providing
exciting solutions for medical image analysis problems. Recent advances in deep
learning have helped to identify, classify, and quantify patterns in medical
images. In this seminar, we introduce the principles and methods of deep
learning concepts, particularly convolutional neural network (CNN). We show how
CNN operates. I will describe several interesting applications of deep learning
for medical image analysis, including my recent works on segmenting myocardial
scar (injured) tissue in the heart, prostate tumor detection, and kidney lesion
localization in 3D MRI and CT images.

Biography

Fatemeh Zabihollahy is currently
a Ph.D. candidate at Carleton University. She obtained her MASc (2016) and BASc
(2001) both in Biomedical Engineering from Carleton University, Canada and
Shahid Beheshti University, Iran, respectively. She worked in the medical
devices industry as an R&D engineer for ten years. Her research interest is
in the field of application of deep learning techniques for medical image
analysis.

GNSS Antennas for Autonomous Vehicles: What You Need to Know! @ 4359 Mackenzie Building, Carleton University
Jul 17 @ 18:00 – 19:00

GNSS
Antennas for Autonomous Vehicles:

What You Need to Know!

 

Precise
and reliable positioning recently became a critical property of autonomous
vehicles like drones, driverless cars and more. Tallysman Wireless will explain
why the GNSS antenna is the most important component for accurate positioning
and will present the challenges of selecting the appropriate GNSS antenna for
diverse types of autonomous vehicles. Multiple properties of a GNSS antenna
like its phase center variation, ability to reject interferences or multipath
and sensibility to its environment will be analysed and guide lines will be
proposed.

 

Refreshments will be served!

Location: 4359 Mackenzie Building, Carleton University.

Map: https://carleton.ca/campus/map/

Time: 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Date: July 17th , 2019

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Julien
Hautcoeur received the M.Sc. degree in radio communication systems and
electronics from the Ecole Polytechnique of the University of Nantes, Nantes,
France, in 2007 and the Ph.D. degree in signal processing and
telecommunications from the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of
Rennes 1, Rennes, France, in 2011. In 2011, he was involved in postdoctoral
training at the University of Quebec in Outaouais (UQO), Gatineau, QC, Canada.
His research field was optically transparent antenna systems for telecommunications.
Since 2014 he works at Tallysman Wireless in Ottawa, Canada and specialized in
the design of high performance GNSS antennas and associated electronics.
