CAALYX – The Complete Ambient Assisted Living Experiment — 9 November 2009

Presenter: Dr. Pepijn van de Ven
Title: CAALYX – The Complete Ambient Assisted Living Experiment
Date: Monday 9th November, 2009
Time: 4 – 5 pm
Venue: Room AH3.43A, Ag-Hort Building, Massey Unversity, Palmerston North
Throughout the world, population characteristics are changing at an alarming rate. World-wide the number of citizens 60 years or over was estimated to be 688 million in 2006. By 2050 their numbers will have increased to almost two billion. This demographic trend is largely due to the vast improvements in health care and ironically, it is exactly this important aspect of our society that will suffer most. Recently the European FP6 project CAALYX (Complete Ambient Assisted Living Experiment) was successfully completed. In this project with partners from 6 different European nations, a suite of sensors in a body area network was used to gauge the medical condition of elderly users, thus lessening the strain on traditional health services.

The CAALYX system constitutes a range of biomedical sensors in a body-area network, which communicates with a server to allow for remote configuration of the sensors and feedback on user health status and potential critical situations. Through its web interfaces, the CAALYX system allows appropriate access to GPs, care taker centres and family or other informal care givers. Through the use of several sensors a comprehensive picture of the elder's medical status is obtained. In addition to home based sensors for blood pressure and weight, sensors for ECG, SpO2, temperature and physical activity were used and integrated in one portable device, coined the Wearable Light Device (WLD). The device was initially used in trials performed in Limerick (Ireland) to evaluate the effectiveness of the equipment and approach. Upon successful completion of the trials in Limerick, the CAALYX system was deployed in Ancona (Italy) and used by both care-home based and independently living elderly citizens. In these clinical trials, which were performed over a 3 month period, 10 elderly volunteers, 4 nurses, 2 care givers and 1 general practitioner used the system. At the same time the system was used remotely by geriatricians to monitor the trial results and provide feedback to the elder or their general practitioner if necessary.

Biomagnetics and Bioimaging for Brain Research — 29 October 2009

Seminar Supported by

Presenter: Professor Shoogo Ueno
Title: Recent Advances in Biomagnetics and Bioimaging for Brain Research and Sensing Technologies
Date: 29 October 2009
Time: 3 pm
Venue: ICLT Veterinary Science / Theatre, Massey University, Palmerston North campus
*** Please note that this is a different venue from the one first advertised ***
Abstract: Biomagnetics is an interdisciplinary field where magnetics, biology and medicine overlap. Biomagnetics has a long history since 1600 when William Gilbert published his book "De Magnete". Recent advances in biomagnetics have enabled us not only to detect extremely weak magnetic fields from the human brain but also to control cell orientation and cell growth by using extremely high magnetic fields. Pulsed magnetic fields are used for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the human brain, and both high frequency magnetic fields and magnetic nano-particles have promising therapeutic applications for the treatments of cancers and brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. On the imaging front, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now a powerful tool for basic and clinical medicine. New methods of MRI based on the imaging of impedance of the human body, called impedance MRI, and the imaging of neuronal current activities in the human brain, called current MRI, are also being developed.

This lecture will focus on the recent advances in biomagnetics and bioimaging based on achievements obtained mostly in our laboratory in recent years. The lecture includes (1) a method of localized magnetic stimulation of the human brain by TMS with a figure-eight coil, (2) magnetoencephalography (MEG) by superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs), (3) impedance MRI and current MRI, (4) cancer therapy and control of iron-ion release/uptake from/into ferritin, iron storage protein, by using both high frequency magnetic fields/pulsed magnetic fields, (5) measurements of iron content and amyloid aggregation via radiative decay modifications, and (6) magnetic control of cell orientation and cell growth by static high magnetic fields. These new biomagnetic approaches will open new horizons in brain research, brain treatments and regenerative medicine.

Optical Fibre Sensing for Biomedical Applications  — 20 October 2009

Presenter: Dr. Sinéad O'Keeffe
Title: Advances in Optical Fibre Sensing Technology for Biomedical Applications
Date: 20 October 2009
Time: 12 pm
Venue: Laby 408, Level 4,  Laby Building, Gate 7 Kelburn Pde, Kelburn Campus, Victoria University of Wellington
See coordinate 11h on the Kelburn Campus Map.
Abstract: The inherent properties of optical fibres afford sensors, based on such technology, a number of advantages over conventional sensing techniques, such as semiconductor and electrochemical sensors. Recent advancement in optical fibre sensing technology has led to the development of a number of novel sensors with applications specific to the biomedical industry. Optical fibres also allow for remote sensing, whereby the sensor can be placed several hundred metres from the control electronics. This means that they can be employed in harsh environments, such as a radiation facility, and monitored online, in real-time, from a control room. The ability to monitor ionising radiation doses is of particular importance within the medical industry, both for radiotherapy, in beam characterisation and patient dose verification, and also for the sterilisation of medical products. The small, lightweight properties of optical fibre sensors, together with their remote monitoring capabilities, make them ideal for in-situ monitoring, for example monitoring lung and bladder pressures, while the penetrating properties of light also allow for non-invasive sensing technology, such as those used for monitoring haemoglobin levels and oxygen saturation. These optical fibre sensors have been shown to have high sensitivity, large dynamic range along with high resolutions.

Biography: Dr. Sinéad O'Keeffe was born in Ireland. She received a B Eng (Hons) degree and PhD degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Limerick. Her PhD work was on the development of polymer optical fibre sensors for the sterilisation industry. Following this, she was a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the General Engineering Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University, developing optical fibre sensors for a microwave plasma UV lamp and ozone generation system. She returned to the Optical Fibre Sensors Research Centre at the University of Limerick in 2008 and was awarded a Returning Marie Curie Research Fellowship in the area of optical fibre radiotherapy dosimetry. Her research interests include optical fibre sensors for environmental monitoring and biomedical applications; such as gas sensing, radiation dosimetry, marine sensing, and water quality monitoring.

Optical Fibre Sensors for Environmental Monitoring  — 14 October 2009

Presenter: Dr. Sinéad O'Keeffe
Title: Optical Fibre Sensors for Applications in Environmental Monitoring
Date: 14 October 2009
Time: 3 pm
*** Please note that this is a different time from the one first advertised ***
Venue: Room: AH3.43a, AG-HORT Building, Massey University, Palmerston North campus
Abstract: The inherent properties of optical fibres afford sensors, based on such technology, a number of advantages over conventional sensing techniques, such as semiconductor and electrochemical sensors. There is an increasing need for the monitoring of certain parameters, e.g. vehicle exhaust gas emissions, urban air pollution, marine pollutants and algae blooms, as legislation governing the environment is becoming ever more stringent, coupled with a fundamental need for understanding the processes that govern our environment so that it can be better understood and managed. Optical fibre sensors provide a means by which rugged and versatile measurements can be achieved. They offer many advantages over conventional methods for sensing technology, particularly for environmental monitoring. Of particular importance is their dependence on light energy at the point of measurement, thus involving no electrical signal. This makes them particularly suitable for marine applications, where they can monitor on the ocean surface, mid-water or on the sea-bed, depending on the application. Optical fibres are made of a dielectric material and as such are chemically inert, making them suitable for sensing in chemically harsh environments, e.g. vehicle exhausts, while also providing immunity from electromagnetic interferences. The possibility of small, simple interfaces along with lightweight fibre technology results in appealing low cost sensor systems. Optical fibre sensors have also been shown to have high sensitivity, large dynamic range along with high resolutions.

125th Anniversary Public Lecture — 1 October 2009

Title: Sparking a Revolution- Marconi, Shipwrecks and Murder
Presenter: Professor Emeritus Bob Hodgson
Time: 5:30 pm
Venue: Rutherford House Lecture Theatre, Victoria University of Wellington
In the the last years of the 19th Century the world was in desperate need of a system of communication that worked without wires and that bridged both the continents and the oceans. By that time Maxwell had produced the theory of the propagation of electromagnetic energy and Hertz had demonstrated it in the laboratory. Marconi, then a teenager, made the vital mental connection between the work of Maxwell and Hertz and the communication at a distance problem. This talk, will tell the sometimes sensational story of how a determined teenager of mixed Italian and British blood solved the problems, made a fortune and literally sparked the communications  revolution that continues. For the technical, the development of electric spark based radio will be explained, for the not so technical the story of the rescue of the survivors of the Titanic and the dramatic capture of  the murderous Dr Crippen will be related.

About Professor Emeritus Bob Hodgson:
Bob Hodgson held the chair in Information Engineering in the School of Engineering and Advanced Technology at Massey University for 21 years and is recently retired. On his retirement he was made Professor Emeritus. He has an international reputation for his pioneering work on digital image processing and has been very active in the profession.
He has been a senior member of the IEEE for 27 years and is an IEEE Centennial Medalist. He is also a licensed radio amateur with a passion for history, including the history of electronic technology.
"Marconi's story is inspirational: both Marconi and his technology played a part in some of the most sensational events of his time." Professor Emeritus Bob Hodgson will enjoy telling this tale.

This should be a topic of wide interest to both members and the public at large and so will be advertised widely across the community as a special public anniversary event. We hope you can all join us on this very special occasion to celebrate the 125th anniversary of your institution.

Refreshments will be served before and after the Lecture on the mezzanine floor adjacent to the rear of the Lecture Theatre.

Title: Governing Core Global Internet Resources
Date: Wednesday 29th July 2009
Time: 7:30am
Venue: James Cook Hotel - Chancellor 6, The Terrace, Wellington
Presentation Slides: Available as PDF file (4.4 MB)
Who governs the Internet's crucial resources - domain names and IP addresses?

Who makes the rules about adding new Top Level Domains to compete with dot Com? Would you like to use dotWine, dotFilm, dotSport or dotSex?

What are the rules about allocating IP addresses? Can they be allocated by governments? Can they be sold? Might they be taxed?

For the past 11 years, a bold global experiment has been successfully conducted, in forming an international, not for profit organisation to deal with these matters. This organization is ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

Based in California, ICANN is designed to be global, self-regulating, industry-led, and largely free from government interference. Today it is facing some challenging issues which have recently hit the international stage.

It may surprise you that this influential organization is chaired by a Kiwi - Wellington barrister Peter Dengate Thrush. Peter will be speaking to us about this unique organization and the challenges it faces.

This will be a fascinating presentation for anyone interested in the future of the Internet. Come along and hear from a New Zealander who is on centre stage of the Governance of the global Internet.

 Idea Propagation in Organizations — Thursday 11th June 2009

Breakfast Seminar Sponsored by Alcatel-Lucent

Presenter: Dr Christopher A. White
Title: Idea Propagation in Organizations
Date: Thursday 11th June 2009
Time: 0730 – 0845
Venue: Duxton Hotel, Wellington
Cost: No charge to pre-registered attendees.
Kindly covered by Alcatel-Lucent
The healthy exchange of ideas within an organization leads to faster problem solving, mitigates short and long term risk, and opens the possibility for disruptive technological change. We introduce a new tool for the simulation and optimization of idea propagation within an organization. This tool builds upon a foundation of hierarchical simulation techniques which have been applied to the simulation of power transients in optically transparent mesh networks.
The tool examines the organizational topology, internal processes, and implements an individual knowledge model to examine idea propagation. The topology represents both the formal and informal networks of idea movement within an organization. The processes include all activities resulting in the exchange or introduction of ideas to the organization. The knowledge model concerns how individuals store and propagate ideas. We apply this tool to several simple organizational topologies to understand the propagation characteristics of ideas and the coupling of ideas between entities in the structure.

Christopher White is a distinguished member of technical staff in the Chief Scientist's Office of Alcatel-Lucent, Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey. He joined Bell Labs in 1997 after graduating with a Ph.D. in theoretical quantum chemistry from the University of California in Berkeley, California. His research interests include the development of computational models and methods for the simulation and control of interesting physical systems. This has included work in areas ranging from linear scaling quantum chemistry simulations, to acoustic scattering in slurries, to the design of microstructured optical devices and the global control of transparent optical mesh networks. Currently, Dr. White’s work in the Chief Scientist's Office focuses on understanding and implementing mechanisms for facilitating idea propagation and collaborative brainstorming as well as supporting the creation and growth of research partnerships between Bell Labs and external academic institutions.

Technical Talk — 13 February 2009

This event was supported by School of Engineering and Advanced Technology, Massey University

Presenter: Tapan K. Sarkar
Title: A Brief Chronology of the Origin and Developments of Wireless Communication and Electronics
Date: Friday, 13 February 2009
Time: 1pm
Venue: Room: 5C12 (Block 5 Level C Room 12)
Entrance A, Wallace St

Wellington Campas
Massey University

This talk presented a brief chronology of the developments of wireless communication and supporting electronics. The name wireless indicates communication without the use of wires. Various mechanisms have been used for such purpose: electrostatic coupling, conduction, magnetic induction and electromagnetic radiation. The first three, while indeed wireless were extremely limited in the distance they were capable of covering. The breakthrough in wireless communication was the successful use of the fourth one which allowed long distance transmission. The term radio was coined as a short name for electromagnetic radiation. Hence it is possible to speak of some wireless systems as not being radio systems. However, because all the other types of wireless mechanisms were abandoned, nowadays the word wireless is synonymous of radio. Also, because the earliest radio communications used Morse’s code for transmitting information, it should be distinguished between this early form of radio communication and radio transmission of information in a readily understandable audio (and/or visual) form. Finally, it must be pointed out that when speaking about the history of wireless communication one can focus on three different types of discoveries: those that made it possible, those that made it realistic, and those that provided quality. Because of all these issues, it is not easy to objectively state who the Father of Radio was. Often, the invention of radio is delegated to one or two persons, the names of whom vary from country to country, depending on the country of origin of the authors. The aim of this presentation is to illustrate that simultaneous developments were going on all over the world and that each invention provided a solution to the portion of the puzzle.

Tapan K. Sarkar received the B.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 1969, the M.Sc.E. degree from the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada, in 1971, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, in 1975.
