Initiatives & Trends

In the last months, several discussions have been raised up by the NSA statements about backdoored cryptosystems up to the announcement about the need for post-quantum cryptography (PCQ). In particular one passage leaves open multiple interesting questions and conjectures:

For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to prepare for the upcoming quantum resistant algorithm transition.

For our October 2015 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of iris recognition. The section below covers patents granted recently for various iris recognition algorithms, iris image quality improvement, off-angle gaze correction, security improvements for iris recognition systems, designing a short distance iris camera, and combined face and iris recognition.

Researchers at the University of Tubingen, Germany, have developed a deep learning algorithm that can turn photos into any style from Van Gogh to Picasso. The system uses neural representations to separate and recombine content and style of arbitrary images, providing a neural algorithm for the creation of artistic images.

A future characterized by an explosion of network connected devices, comprising smart grids, smart transportation systems, smart health, and more generally the Internet of Things, opens new doors to potentially disastrous scenarios if security is not built in from the ground up.

Researchers from Korea University and the Technical University of Berlin have developed a new brain-computer interface to control a lower limb exoskeleton by decoding specific signals from within the user’s brain.

For our September 2015 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Resource Management. The section below covers patents granted recently for various forecasting, modeling and evaluation solutions approached via resource management.

IEEE Future Directions is your resource to emerging technologies within IEEE. The team has identified specific technologies as primary focus areas and has established them as formal initiatives to engage IEEE and the general public. For each initiative, you can find a wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities to participate. Visit each featured portal for access to upcoming conferences, news articles, technical papers, related standards, professional organizations, and academic programs.

The IEEE Humanitarian Ad Hoc Committee (HAHC) is tasked with supporting the IEEE Board-endorsed vision of IEEE volunteers around the world carrying out and/or supporting impactful humanitarian activities at the local level, i.e., “feet on the ground.” HAHC is currently soliciting proposals for humanitarian projects that are aligned with this vision.

The committee will review proposals and grant awards between US$20,000 and US$100,000.

Project activities to be funded by the grant must be completed by the end of calendar year 2015 to be considered.

IEEE has launched the IEEE in 2030 Challenge with the goal of finding innovative, creative, and potentially disruptive approaches that will help engineers and technical professionals working in industry. The IEEE New Initiatives Committee will be awarding small seed grants (US$40,000 or less) to those projects that are selected.

The IEEE Smart Cities Initiative is inviting applications from municipalities worldwide already in the process of planning smart cities for growing urban populations. Two cities will be selected from submissions to receive funding and support from IEEE experts to host a workshop in their city before the end of 2015.
