Managing the development of AI and Machines that learn @ Room 4359, Mackenzie Building | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

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

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.

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!

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.
