Summary: In the last few years, many advances have been made in the field of dense computing in response to heavy cloud and compute demand. Cooling these requires a diverse set of approaches, as there is no one solution fits all approach. This talk will highlight many of these sometimes diverse and seemingly different technology approaches. Some of the topics we hope to touch upon will be:

High density cooling solutions market: What’s available today and where are we headed
Air vs. water – when is air not enough and why?
Data center facilities management and how to bridge the gap to get things done right
The importance of cooling flexibility in today’s data centers.

1. Welcome
Welcome to the IEEE Southeastern Michigan Section 2017 Fall Conference. This event is produced by the Southeastern Michigan Section to provide you with a number of personal and IEEE-related opportunities.
• Once again, a very highly regarded and entertaining keynote speaker.
• Invited speakers that will present overviews of their work with respect to the conference theme, Ethics in Engineering, Science and Technology. We are sure there is something for everyone in the range of topics this diverse mix of talented speakers will cover.
• Networking time to catch up with friends and make new acquaintances. Everyone at the Conference is an ‘expert’ in something, and one of the most fascinating aspects of a Section wide conference is finding those interesting individuals you will meet ‘for the first time’. So be sure to make that extra effort to introduce yourself to someone you have not met before.
• Socialize over the Conference Dinner with both old and new friends.
• Recognition of some of our volunteers who have contributed so much to our Section’s success in the past year.
This year, we have chosen Ethics in Engineering, Science and Technology (ETHICS 2017) as the theme for our Fall Conference, in recognition of the difficulty in a modern world of fulfilling multiple and sometimes conflicting moral obligations to different parties. By the 19th century, the emergence of engineering as a distinct profession was accompanied by a need to clarify the relationship between the self-interest that practitioners of engineering have in advancing their careers and business interests, and their moral obligations to society, to their employers and/or clients, and to their profession. As global, social, environmental and business pressures have evolved over the past 150 years, ethical dilemmas have intensified. It has become necessary for all of us to reflect carefully as we traverse an evolving and increasingly challenging ethical landscape.
ETHICS 2017 provides an exciting opportunity for researchers, regulators, educators and practitioners alike to debate, discuss and deliberate issues concerning modern engineering ethics and ethical standards, and their impact on our lives, careers, profession and society. Our Keynote and invited speakers, panel forum, and a reception will enable exchange of experience and perspectives on many levels.
Please enjoy the Conference and the presentations, and take advantage of the wealth of intellectual and network resources available here today. Thank you for your attendance and for supporting the IEEE Southeastern Michigan Section.

SEM Section Chair

“Privacy Threats Against Brain-Computer Interfaces”

Tamara Bonaci

Lecturer & Researcher
Northeastern University and the University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Tamara is a researcher interested in security and privacy of cyber-phsyical systems, in particular emerging biomedical technologies. Her current research focuses on security and privacy issues related to neural engineering systems, visual prosthesis, and teleoperated robots.

In the area of neural privacy and security, Tamara has been working towards understanding and quantifying the amount of private information that can be extracted using a person’s electro-physiological signals as information sources. She has also worked on research and development of a signal processing mechanism, referred to as the BCI Anonymizer, which will be used to prevent and mitigate privacy attacks.

In the area of teleoperated security, Tamara has been investigating potential security threats against the next-generation teleoperated robotic systems. She has worked towards quantifying the impact of these threats on remote operators, robots, as well as teleoperated procedures as a whole. In addition, Tamara has been researching and developing mitigation strategies against the detected attacks, which rely on human operator’s haptic interaction with the system.
