The Responsible Practice of Generative Artificial Intelligence for Industrial Systems and Technologies

Monday 25 March 2024 at 8:00 PM AEDT, 10:00 AM CET By Daswin De Silva (La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia) Register now using the link below: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5335024369129066072 Abstract: Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the way we live and work through numerous practical applications of intelligence, insights and decision-making. These generative intelligence capabilities have expanded into industrial applications and systems, leading to many opportunities for innovation in research, development, practice, as well as training and education. For instance, in energy systems, Generative AI can be used to inform decisions on renewables integration, energy conservation measures, energy optimization and predictive maintenance, while across the board in robotics, it is contributing to trajectory planning, state estimation, adaptive vision and human interaction. In parallel to these rapid technical innovations, the risks of AI are also growing. AI that is poorly designed, developed and evaluated without consideration of the broader socio-technical landscape of operation, can result in system failures, service disruptions, security violations and even human casualties. Some experts have also escalated this to a risk of extinction from AI that should be a global priority alongside other societal-scale risks such as pandemics and nuclear war. I will begin this webinar by introducing ...

[S/YP webinar] New and emerging applications of dual-active bridge (DAB) converters

Monday 5 February 2024 at 2:00 PM CET, 8:00 AM EST By Rik W. De Doncker, Edivan L. Carvalho, Tao Yang and Levy Costa Joint Webinar with IEEE IES Students and Young Professionals Activity Committee (S&YP) Register now using the link below: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5705655443767865440 Abstract: From highly efficient buildings to more electric aircraft, the dual active bridge (DAB) converter has been seen as the main enabling technology for the electrification of modern applications. Additionally, recent, and developing standards, opened the possibility of making research for such applications more focused and oriented to industrial development. Thinking in application-oriented designs allows us to push the DAB technology boundaries for more efficient solutions that are reliable, cost-effective, and ready for these new challenges. Our upcoming webinar dives deep into the application-specific requirements and the latest developments of DAB. Join us to explore its role in highly efficient DC buildings, the electrification of more electric aircraft (MEA), and the integration with solid-state transformers (SSTs). Presenters’ bio: Rik De Doncker (Life Fellow, IEEE) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, in 1986, and the doctor honoris causa degree from TU Riga, Riga, Latvia, in 2011. In 1987, he was appointed ...
