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.”

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.

Recent Advances in Retinal Imaging! @ Room 4359, Mackenzie Building
Aug 19 @ 18:00 – 19:30
Recent Advances in Retinal Imaging! @ Room 4359, Mackenzie Building | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

ABSTRACT:

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.

SPEAKER:

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.

This event is organized by IEEE WIE and sponsored by IEEE Photonics Society – Ottawa Section!!

Seminar Information:

ABSTRACT:

Given the fast pace of innovation in digital health technologies, specifically in relation to the evolution of medical devices with more complex software and increased network connectivity, a new frontier of cybersecurity vulnerabilities has emerged. As a result, designers of such technologies face many challenges and must consider many inter-related factors that contribute to such an insecure environment.

 

In this talk, we will identify the key classes of vulnerabilities to which modern medical devices and digital health technologies are exposed, discuss the security and privacy challenges in designing these technologies, and outline some of the defensive measures that can address this complex and multi-faceted problem.

 

BIOGRAPHY:
