September 2016 Section Meeting

LEED – Electrical Focused Presentation

DATE: Thursday, September 22, 2016

PLACE : Raffel’s – 10160 Reading Road (see below for directions)

TIME : 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Social Time 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. – Dinner 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. -Presentation

COST: $10- $15, See information in Reservations

ABOUT THE MEETING: As electrical engineers, contractors, and practitioners, the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Designs (LEED) Rating System can have a tremendous impact on what we would otherwise think of as a “typical” construction project. Join us for an overview of the applicable LEED criteria, along with some valuable “lessons learned” in incorporating these criteria within the built environment. Project case studies will help to illustrate the necessary tools, processes, and milestones with respect to involvement in a LEED project.

Learning Objectives:

1.     Attendees will garner a basic understanding of several LEED credits that involve electrical design and construction, for purposes of realizing their impact on day-to-day roles in this field.

2.     Attendees will observe various tools and methods that assist in incorporating the LEED criteria into a typical project.

3.     Attendees will understand the cost impact and potential savings opportunities that exist by incorporating such criteria into a project.

4.     Attendees will review project case studies focused on the electrical-based LEED credits.

MAY SECTION MEETING

High-Performance Clustering of Distributed, High-Dimensional Data Sets

DATE: Thursday, May 26, 2016  
PLACE : Raffel’s – 10160 Reading Road (see below for directions)
TIME : 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Social Time
  6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. – Dinner
  7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. – Presentation
COST: $10- $15, See information in Reservations

ABOUT THE MEETING:      The size and amount of data captured from numerous sources has created a situation where the large quantity of data challenges our ability to understand the meaning within the data. This has motivated studies for mechanized data analysis and in particular for the clustering, or partitioning, of data into related groups.  In fact, the size of the data has grown to the point where it is now often necessary to stream the data through the system for online and high speed analysis.  This talk explores the application of approximate methods for the stream clustering of high-dimensional data (feature sizes contains 100s to 1000s of measures).  In particular, we develop an algorithm, called RPHash, that combines Random Projection and Locality Sensitive Hashing (LSH) to implement a high-performance method for the parallel and distributed clustering of streaming data in a map-reduce framework.  RPHash is able to perform clustering at a rate much faster than traditional clustering algorithms, such K-Means.  Furthermore, the experimental results show that RPHash has a near linear speedup relative to the number of CPU cores.  This speedup efficiency is possible because the approximate methods used in RPHash allow independent and largely unsynchronized analyses to be performed on each streamed data vector until a log-based reduction step is required to provide clustering results.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:     Philip A. Wilsey is a Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Cincinnati. His primary research is in high performance computing, parallel and distributed simulation, high-dimensional data clustering, embedded systems, and point-of-care medical devices.  He has worked more than 25 years in the field of high performance computing and has recently initiated studies into the high performance clustering of high-dimensional data.  His work in high-performance high-dimensional data clustering focuses a combination of approximate methods that support high-performance as well as distributed data clustering.

MENU SELECTIONS:      Buffet Menu:  Homemade Potato and Chicken Noodle Soups, Salad and Baked Potato Bar, Toppings: Shredded Cheddar, Chopped Bacon, Sliced Hardboiled Eggs, Sauteed Mushrooms & Garlic, Diced Broccoli, Diced Turkey & Salad Dressings, Breadsticks, Chef’s Choice Dessert

ABOUT THE MEETING:  

The Leahy–Smith America Invents Act (AIA) is a United States federal statute that came into effect in 2013.  The law represents the most significant change to the U.S. patent system since 1952. The law switched the U.S. rights to a patent from the previous “first-to-invent” system to a “first inventor-to-file” system. The presentation will highlight some of the more significant changes stemming from the AIA to the U.S. patent system and practice points that inventors need to keep in mind should they be interested in seeking patent protection, including initial means for searching for relevant prior art.
