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.”

The role of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) in
bringing about a revolution in almost all aspects of human life needs no
introduction. It is indeed a well-known fact that the transmission of
information at a rapid pace has transformed all spheres of human life such as
education, health, and economy to name a few. In addition, with the advent in
Electronics and Photonics Technology (EPT), we have observed sustained growth
and expansion in computation and display technology. From user demography
perspective, urbanized population are the major beneficiary of such advances.
Therefore, the benefits of ICT and EPT are yet to be experienced by almost 4
billion people in the world who are still “unconnected or under-connected” and
suffer as such from the “digital divide,” a term coined in order to emphasize
the lack of ICT infrastructure in many parts of the world.
Major challenges for widespread adoption of ICT and EPT in
these areas are related to cost, lack of power supply, and complexities
associated with learning and usage. However, if we can categorically overcome
these challenges, then these technologies can be used for food, water, shelter,
energy, environment, education, healthcare, and security. In addition, the
wide-spread availability of these technologies, will lead to smart suburbs,
smart towns, smart villages, etc., without the need to necessarily live in
smart cities. This would reverse the trend and allow a more sustainable world
with a more balanced distribution of the population density. In this context,
this talk will present recently proposed solutions to provide high speed
connectivity in rural areas along progress in affordable electronics to serve
and contribute to the development of far-flung regions.
In particular, new solutions for both: (i) integrated
satellite-airborne-ground networks providing global coverage and connectivity
and (ii) terrestrial mesh/multi-hop directive networks connecting underserved
areas will be discussed.
Moreover, some examples of democratized wearable
electronics using Do-It-Yourself (DIY) assembly of paper along Android DIY
applications capturing and displaying vital health signs over connected
smartphones for real-time diagnosis will be presented.
Antennas for Autonomous Vehicles:
What You Need to Know!
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

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.
Over 250 million people in the world are blind or visually impaired. But 75% of visual impairment can be treated or entirely prevented if detected early, monitored effectively, and treated promptly. Various retinal imaging instruments have been developed to assist the screening, diagnosing and monitoring of vision critical eye diseases. These instruments range from traditional ophthalmoscope to digital fundus camera; from ocular tomography (OCT) to laser scanning ophthalmoscope. In this presentation the speaker will attempt to explain the principle of retinal imaging; give an overview on the advances in retinal imaging; and discuss the opportunities for innovation in vision care and retinal imaging.
Dr Kexing Liu is the president and CEO of OcuXcel Corporation, a technology company based in Kanata, Ontario, dedicated to providing advanced technology solutions and developing new products from a global tech workforce for ophthalmology and vision health. Kexing received his Ph.D. degree from University of Manchester (UMIST), UK. One of his first professional and technology contribution was in pioneering the integration and qualification of GPS navigation technology into the on-board flight management systems for civil aviation as a project leader at CMC Electronique, Montreal. Later he joined a start-up called Cambrian Systems Corporation, Kanata, He was one of the the principal architects for the world’s first metro DWDM system product – OPTera (OM5K) at Cambrian. The company was later acquired by Nortel Networks. The OM5K as an extremely profitable line of product has generated over US$3 billion revenue for Nortel (now Ciena) since the acquisition. Later on, Kexing had an opportunity to serve as the principal of Mira Connections, a consulting business helping medical device companies on systems engineering and management issues. Most recently Kexing has architected multispectral digital ophthalmoscope for retinal health screening. Kexing has published more than 30 scientific papers on fiber optics and photonics. He is inventor/co-inventor for 17 granted patents ranging from photonics, optical communications systems, control systems engineering, and ophthalmology instruments. Kexing is a senior member of IEEE and is currently serving as the chair of an IEEE Canada committee responsible for outreach.
