|Prof. Moshe Tur|
School of Electrical Engineering, Tel-Aviv University, Israel
|Moshe Tur received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Physics from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel (1969), the M.Sc. degree in Applied Physics from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel (1973), and his Ph.D. from Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel (1981). After spending two years at Stanford University (Information Systems Laboratory and Ginzton Laboratory), researching innovative fiber-optic technologies, he joined (1983) the Faculty of Engineering at Tel-Aviv University, where he is presently the Gordon Professor (Emeritus) of Electrical Engineering at the School of Electrical Engineering. There, he has established an advanced fiber-optic sensing and communication laboratory. He authored or co-authored more than 690 journal and conference technical papers with emphasis on fiber-optic sensing (mainly in Structural Health Monitoring, using static and dynamic fiber Bragg gratings, as well as the Brillouin and Rayleigh effects), advanced fiber-optic communication systems, polarization mode dispersion and microwave photonics.

Speech Title: Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) Beams for Communication and Sensing
Abstract: There exist beam wave solutions of Maxwell equations which carry orbital angular momentum (OAM) in the form of a helical transverse phase of the form exp(𝑖ℓ), where is the azimuthal angle and ℓ, the OAM charge, is an unbounded integer (with either negative or positive signs) that represents the number of 2π phase changes in the azimuthal direction. In free space an OAM beam has a ring-shaped intensity profile with a central null. With an additional characteristic integer, 𝑝, which is related to the number of rings in the radial direction, the set is orthogonal and two-dimensional complete. OAM is yet another degree of freedom of the beam, orthogonal to all other multiplexing modes. More...
Distinguished Research Fellow, Research Center for Information Technology Innovation, Taiwan
|Dr. Huang received his PhD in Computer Science from University of Maryland. He Joined AT&T Bell Labs in 1989. His work on Software Implemented Fault Tolerance (SwiFT) tools was applied to tens of telecommunication systems in AT&T and was named one of the ten major technology breakthroughs in Bell Laboratories in 1992. Because of the SwiFT work, Dr. Huang was a recipient of Lucent Commemorating Stock Certificate and Computerworld Smithsonian Award in 1998 on the SwiFT technology. He became a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff of Bell Labs in 1996. He started the Dependable Computing Research Department in AT&T in 1999 and was the department head of the organization to ensure the high dependability of all AT&T services. Dr. Huang became the VP of Engineering of PreCache Inc, a Sony subsidiary, in 2001 to create a multi-media content delivery platform. In late 2004, Dr. Huang returned to AT&T and became the Executive Director of Dependable Distributed Computing and Communication Research Department to lead AT&T Digital Content Management and IPTV research programs.

Speech Title: Security and Privacy Research Opportunities in AIoT
Abstract: Recent development in AI, IoT and 5G technologies have made many innovative and intelligent services. These services will bring big changes in how we live and how we work. However, the technologies also create a lot of issues in data security and privacy. In this talk, I will overview some security and privacy research challenges in AI, IoT and 5G applications and services. I will then describe some research work in Research Center for Information and Technology Innovation (CITI) of Academia Sinica to deal with the security and privacy issues of AIoT applications and services.

Speech Title: SGO( Social Group Optimization): A new evolutionary optimization techniques and its applications in Sensor Networks
Abstract: Nature provides some of the efficient ways to solve problems. Nature inspired algorithms imitating processes in nature/inspired from nature for solving complex optimization problems. In this talk the use of recently developed new efficient optimization algorithm Social Group Optimization (SGO) which is inspired by the social behavior of human for solving complex problems would be discussed. To judge the effectiveness of SGO, extensive experiments have been conducted on number of different unconstrained benchmark functions and performance comparisons are made with recently proposed state-of-art optimization techniques as well as 30 standard numerical benchmark functions taken from ICSI 2014 Competition on Single Objective Optimization and compared with the performance of six selected algorithms of that competition. In the later part of the talk, a case study of application of SGO to Sensor Networks would be delivered.
