Cybersecurity Evaluation and Assurance for IoT-Enabled Systems @ 4359 Mackenzie Building
Apr 8 @ 18:00 – 19:30

Abstract:

The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled the development of systems capable of collecting and processing vast amounts of data to enhance system operation and/or to predict or tailor user experiences. The development, adoption, and evolution of systems with more complex software and increased connectivity enabled by IoT technologies has led to a new frontier of cybersecurity vulnerabilities from which such systems were previously shielded. As a result, there is an ever-growing need to evaluate and assure the cybersecurity of IoT-enabled systems, and the information that they use, store, and communicate, in the face of cyber-attacks and failures.
In this talk, Dr. Jaskolka will explore the growing range of complex challenges faced when evaluating and assuring the cybersecurity of IoT-enabled systems. Dr. Jaskolka will also discuss the opportunities that this presents in developing new and innovative ways to engineer more secure and trustworthy IoT-enabled systems. In particular, Dr. Jaskolka will present recent advances in addressing system-level cybersecurity evaluation and assurance using an example IoT-enabled system.

About the speaker:

Dr. Jason Jaskolka is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, ON, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Software Engineering in 2015 from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada. His research interests include cybersecurity evaluation and assurance, security-by-design, and formal methods and algebraic approaches for software and security engineering. He is interested in applying his research to critical infrastructures, cyber-physical and distributed systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The return of the IEEE Ottawa Lunch and Learn @ Mitel HQ
May 2 @ 11:30 – 13:30
The return of the IEEE Ottawa Lunch and Learn @ Mitel HQ | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

Organized by the IEEE Ottawa Section, IEEE Ottawa Lunch and Learn is an initiative to bridge the gap and derive synergy between Ottawa industry, academia, and government. The initiative, on a monthly basis, brings a speaker from either industry, academia, or government to the heart of the Kanata Tech Hub.

The seminar is accompanied by a complimentary lunch and a space to connect, communicate, and collaborate. Our attendees include members of industry, government, and academia. University and College students are encouraged to attend, network, and discover what’s new and exciting in Ottawa Tech. IEEE Ottawa L&L is FREE and OPEN TO ALL.

Topic:

Perspectives on AI, the future impact on Engineering, Science and Technology

– May 2nd, 2019 –

Robin Grosset

Patent Agent, CTO Mindbridge AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to disrupt many professions and the future of any role will certainly involve AI. This is true for doctors, lawyers, accounts and even engineers. In this session, we will look at the factors which are bringing about this disruption. We will also explore the importance of explicability and a human-centric approach in AI technology to support improving professional judgement.

 

Robin currently works at MindBridge where he leads the development of a next generation AI Auditor which helps professionals detect and prevent financial anomalies including fraud.

 

Robin has a track record as an entrepreneur having founded successful software start- ups. He joined Cognos and subsequently IBM through acquisitions. In 2012 he was appointed IBM Distinguished Engineer. At IBM, he was a part of the Watson Group where he served as technical lead and chief architect of IBM Watson Analytics. Robin holds many patents in the areas of analytics, data processing and security. MindBridge Ai is a venture-backed FinTech company based in Ottawa, Canada. Through the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, the MindBridge platform detects anomalous patterns of activities, unintentional errors and intentional misstatements. Using MindBridge Ai Auditor, organizations across multiple industries can minimize financial loss, reduce corporate liability and can focus on providing higher value services to their clients.

4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference @ Brook Street Hotel
May 8 @ 09:00 – 15:00
4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference @ Brook Street Hotel | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

Innovation enables organizations to open new avenues of product differentiation by customizing products. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, engineers must innovate quickly to incorporate new features while reducing development costs and delivering new products to the market before the competition. Simulation plays a key role in helping engineers drive innovation, enabling complete virtual prototypes of complex systems to be validated across all physics and engineering disciplines.

Join us as we return to Ottawa for our 4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference on May 8, 2019! This one-day conference will provide detailed insight into how leading companies are utilizing simulation to advance their product development. We will bring together ANSYS users, partners, developers, and industry experts for networking, learning, and sharing of new ideas.
