Upcoming missions to remote destinations like Jupiter’s moon Europa will
operate at extreme distances from the Earth where direct human oversight is
impossible. The combination of extreme distance, limited lifetime due to high
radiation, and limited data downlink creates an urgent need for reliable
Machine learning can help by analyzing data for features of interest as it is
collected. Data with positive detections can be marked for high priority
downlink to Earth for mission planning. For Europa, such features include
active icy plumes and unusual surface mineral deposits.
This talk describes data analysis and machine learning methods that can
operate onboard to increase the rate of exploration and discovery. I will
also describe how to assess algorithm radiation sensitivity to determine
which ones are sufficiently robust for mission use.
IEEE Oregon Section Young Professionals are having our Bowling Night! Please come and meet engineers and professionals & show off your bowling skills. Register ASAP so that we can have accurate headcounts for line reservation.
Ask for the IEEE event when you come in.

Dr. Yogesh Ramadass, Director of Power Management R&D at Kilby Labs, Texas Instruments will be giving an IEEE Distinguished Lecture on November 7th from 10:30 am to noon in KEC 1005. The lecture is also part of the IEEE SSCS Student Chapter seminar series.
Venue: KEC 1005 @ 10:30 am, November 7.
Title: Power Electronics for the Future: Research Trends and Challenges
Abstract: Power electronics can be found in everything from cellphones and laptops to gasoline/electric vehicles, industrial motors and inverters that connect solar panels to the electric grid. With close to 80% of electrical energy consumption in the US expected to flow through a power converter by 2030, innovative circuits, devices and systems solutions are required to tackle key issues related to conversion efficiency, power density and cost. This talk will look at the trends in power electronics across different application spaces, describe the ongoing research efforts and highlight the challenges ahead.
Bio:Yogesh Ramadass received his B. Tech. degree from IIT-Kharagpur and the S. M. and Ph.D. degrees from MIT in Electrical Engineering. He is currently the director of power management R&D at Kilby Labs, Texas Instruments, where he is involved in research and product development efforts looking into high power density and low-EMI automotive and industrial switching converters, small form-factor converters for consumer electronics, nano-power IoT designs and high voltage power systems.
Dr. Ramadass was awarded the President of India Gold Medal in 2004, the EETimes ‘Innovator of the Year’ award in 2013 and the ‘Young Alumni Achiever’ award by IIT-Kharagpur in 2018. He was a co-recipient of the best paper awards at CICC 2018, ISSCC 2009 and ISSCC 2007. He is a senior member of the IEEE and serves as the chair of the ‘Power Management’ sub-committee at ISSCC and as a ‘Distinguished Lecturer’ for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He served as an associate editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits from 2015-2018 and on the Technical Program Committee for the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Circuits from 2016-2018.
Welcome to the Analog and Power Systems Community of Practice! My name is Yusang Chun and I am more than delighted to serve as the coordinator of this community for Fall 2019. Please let me know any concerns or suggestions to make this a better community.

The talk was based on research Dr. Eduardo Cotilla-Sanchez is doing regarding the integration of some ethical issues regarding energy accessibility into education. There is currently very little research on how access to energy affects deeper socioeconomic issues, and the idea that Dr. ECS has is to increase the amount that people are thinking about problems regarding energy access before problems continue to grow.
Research based off following papers:
