Artificial Intelligence (AI) is constantly in the news
with stories of promise and peril.
Political leaders have declared it a national priority, the global high
tech industry is racing AI apps to markets and policy and governance
implications of AI are in their infancy.
We will explore where this is all heading.
We will begin with some definitions and a bit of
history behind the rise of AI.Â The talk
will then place AI in the context of being a potentially disruptive technology
on society. This will lead to a discussion about ethics and moral issues
regarding the development and use of aspects of AI as a dual-use
technology.Â Time permitting, the role of
AI in defence and security will be used as an example for appreciating the
complexity and ethical issues brought on by AI. We will then turn to the role
of the engineer in this new world being enabled by AI.
Finally, we will review potential governance and
policy issues and options to address the rapid unchecked development and
application of AI within society at large; and, ultimately end with a
The speaker was
a pioneer in the commercialization of AI in the 1980s and today is actively
involved in ethical and policy issues related to AI.Â Peter has an extensive background on the
forefront of scientific and technological breakthroughs around disruptive
technologies and their impacts on society.
He was an early proponent in the development and promotion of Big Data
and data analytics using High Performance Computers, and was a major
contributor in creating the Internet in Canada, among other accomplishments.
Peter has a
background as a scientist, business manager, entrepreneur, domestic and
international bureaucrat, executive, diplomat, management advisor, and
academic; including most recently affiliation with both Telfer School of
Management and the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ottawa and the
Faculty of Engineering at Carleton University.
Peter also blogs on AI for the Institute on Science, Society and Policy,
an interfaculty organisation at uOttawa.

Transceiver Architectures for Beyond-5G: Challenges and R&D Opportunities, co-organized with SSC-S
Dr. Payam Heydari
University of California, Irvine
Date: Thursday, May 14 , 2020
Time: 12:00 PMÂ – 1 PM
The ongoing super-linear growth of worldâ€™s population coupled with the worldwide access to internet and the general publicâ€™s tendency to use more bandwidth-intensive applications fuel the urgency to enhance wireless infrastructures so as to meet these demands. Consequently, the wireless R&D is headed towards the inception of “Beyond-5G” (e.g., 6G) technology.Â This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of challenges and opportunities in designing beyond-5G transceiver architectures capable of achieving high data rates above and beyond 20 Gbps.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Speaker Bio:
Payam Heydari received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California in 2001. He is currently a Full Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Heydari’s research covers the design of terahertz/millimeter-wave/RF and analog integrated circuits. He is the (co)-author of two books, one book chapter, and more than 150 journal and conference papers.Â
Dr. Heydari is an AdCom member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. Dr. Heydari currently serves an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Letters. He was a member of the Technical Program Committee of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). Dr. Heydari is an IEEE Fellow for contributions to silicon-based millimeter-wave integrated circuits and systems.

In this time of social distancing, we are pleased to announce that all the team members of IEEE YP and WIE Ottawa Sections are fully committed to providing online interaction and support to our community! In partnership with Professional Engineers Ontario, we present an online talk in “Clarifying the Path to Becoming a Professional Engineer.”
If you are an engineering undergraduate or post-graduate student, or a recent graduate starting out your engineering career, then this seminar might be for you. In it you will learn:
- What is PEO?
- What engineering experience is PEO looking for once I graduate?
- I have international engineering education and experience; how is that evaluated by PEO?
- How is my engineering experience evaluated by PEO?
- How do I prepare my Experience Record?
- What is the PPE?
- What is the EIT Program and the Student Membership Program?
The emphasis of this webinar will be on the P. Eng. licensure process – what PEO is looking for. The webinar will focus on how engineering experience is evaluated and how you can facilitate the process. Learn the dos and donâ€™ts of preparing your licensing application for evaluation.
To participate, you will require: internet connection to view the webinar, phone access to dial into the conference for audio.
We look forward to speaking with you!
