New Book: Intelligence for Embedded Systems, a Methodological Approach

The book, written by Prof. Cesare Alippi and published by Spinger is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment of intelligent systems, teaching the reader everything from metrology to cognition. It shows students and engineers how to understand basic mechanisms and design advanced applications, feeding a digital world eager for intelligent mechanisms. It also introduces researchers to ideas characterizing the transition from one generation of intelligent devices to the next.

IES Symposium 2014

The “Intelligent Embedded Systems Research Group” at the Politecnico di Milano, in Milan, Italy, directed by Prof. Cesare Alippi, is organizing a symposium on “Intelligent Embedded Systems” in the context of the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2014), a flagship international symposium of symposia sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) promoting all aspects of Computational Intelligence (CI).

In particular, the “Intelligent Embedded Systems” (IES) symposium will focus on recent achievements in computational intelligence towards embedded systems highlighting intelligent behaviours, including topics such as:
•Intelligence for embedded systems
•Computational intelligence for cyber-physical systems
•Intelligent fault diagnosis systems
•Intelligent solutions for Internet of Things
•Intelligent sensor networks
•Intelligent sensors and robotics
•Intelligent measurement systems
•Adaptive solutions to operate in evolving/changing environments
•Intelligent systems for real-world applications

Embedded Networked Systems Engineer – National Geographic

National Geographic – Remote Imaging laboratories is hiring a Post Doctoral researcher to be responsible for the development, testing and performance evaluation of networked embedded devices, in fulfillment of an NSF Grant. These will extend video-recording devices (Crittercam) that have been developed by NGS. The new devices will be equipped with low power GPS localization, wireless communication and on-board execution of distributed algorithms for data storage, streaming and processing, as well as other functionality’s such as battery management. The work will be developed at the Remote Imaging laboratories, located in the headquarters of NGS in Washington, DC, and it will benefit from the guidance and mentorship of experienced engineers.

The Post Doctoral researcher will interact with other team members at the University of Maryland and Princeton University, who will, respectively, evaluate and develop distributed algorithms and determine data to be collected and develop biologically relevant models. The intellectual merit of the work in is development of methods for hardware integration to build distributed networks of embedded devices that are capable of executing algorithms, subject to severe power and weight constraints.

Networked Embedded Systems: Humans in the Loop

The Cooperating Objects Network of Excellence (CONET) is organising another Summer School this year. Like the 2009 edition, the school goes back to Bertinoro International Center for Informatics (BiCi), (Forlì-Cesena), Italy and will be held on 24 – 30 July, 2011.

Sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, and cooperating objects are becoming an important part of our daily life. Humans build, deploy, use, and maintain these systems that can sense our activities and influence our behaviour. We will increasingly rely on these networked embedded systems, therefore also requiring a secure and privacy-preserving treatment of sensitive human-centric data. Novel paradigms and solutions are also needed to allow humans to interact with these systems.

The goal of the summer school is to survey fundamental and applied aspects of networked embedded systems and their relationship to humans, as well as to identify novel opportunities and research directions in these areas through a series of lectures by international experts. Participants will also experience the relevant technologies during hands-on courses and be given a chance to present their own work during a participants’ workshop. The school will provide a great opportunity to know other people working in the field, to meet distinguished scholars, and to establish contacts that may lead to research collaborations in the future. We expect about 60 participants. The intended audience are postgraduate students, PhD students, and young researchers from universities and industrial laboratories around the world.
