Data Science 101

Room: Parking Lot "L", Bldg: West Science 100, Cornell College, 61 1st Street SW, Mt. Vernon, Iowa, United States, 52314, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/282201

Data Science is one of the fastest growing disciplines at University level. We see more job postings that require training in data science, more academic appointments in the field, and more courses offered, both online and traditional settings. We are living in an era in which the kind of problems that could be solved using data are driving a huge wave of innovations in various industries. Thus, knowing the basics of data and data analysis has become a fundamental skill that everyone needs, even if they do not want to pursue a degree in computer science, statistics, or data science. Many educational institutions are offering programs and courses in Data science that are geared towards students who may not become data scientists but could still benefit from data literacy skills. Co-sponsored by: Cornell College, Mt. Vernon, IA Speaker(s): Gokul Murugesan, Leon Tabak Agenda: Park in Lot L on Library Lane, off West Colledge Blvd SW 7 PM Program begins in West Hall, Room 100, east of the parking lot. Dinner option: Leon Tabak will be pleased to dine with IEEE members before the program in Cornell College's dining hall, in Thomas Commons on map link below. Write to Leon Tabak (l.tabak@ieee.org) if you are interested and planning to join us.

IEEE-MTT Webinar Re-broadcast: Battery-less RF/Microwave Systems

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/287609

Join the CRIEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques and Communication Societies for a re-broadcast of the IEEE-MTT Webinar: Battery-less RF/Microwave Systems. Abstract: For a future of ubiquitous networks of wireless sensors, one of the main challenging tasks is the wireless powering of a multitude of small devices and machines to allow truly perpetual wireless-powered communication (WPC). This webinar first describes possible solutions for the RF architectures of transmitting and receiving sides for battery-less scenarios, showing how multi-domain design techniques, combining EM theory and numerical simulation with nonlinear circuit design can provide reliable system implementations; secondly the effective exploitation of such systems is shown through some significant applications, such as high precision localization (centimeter-level ) and tracking, adopting UWB communication, and predictive maintenance in machineries and industrial plants scenarios exploiting low-energy communications. The design challenges for both the transmitting and receiving subsystems are presented together with the performance achievements in real scenarios.
