In cities across the globe, road transport remains an important source of air pollutants that are linked with acute and chronic health effects. In the last 20 years, my research group have investigated these associations in human challenge chamber studies in Umea, Sweden; real-world exposure scenarios in London and recently in the megacity Beijing, China. The main particulate matter (PM) components originating from road traffic are engine emissions. The largest single source is derived from diesel exhaust (DE). Indeed, owing to the…

With the advent of Cloud Computing, workloads have been steadily moving to data centres. AI is the latest workload class that the Cloud has been optimising for. At the same time, Edge compute stacks (mobile phones, Raspberry PIs) have also been beefing up to run AI-class workloads. I will discuss some ongoing areas of research and open source development that will enable AI to come to the Edge. About the Speaker: Dr. Amith Singhee is a Manager and Senior Technical Staff…

Operations-aware maintenance in smart manufacturing systems

We consider a smart manufacturing scenario where information regarding machine tool health and job statuses can be made available in real time. In the first part of the talk we analyze the evolution of the system to determine when to perform time-consuming tool-change maintenance by trading off increasing work-in-process against risks of tool failure and level of quality. The job arrival process, processing times, tool degradation process and tool replacement times are all stochastic. To analyze such an operations-aware maintenance…

Structural reconstruction of scale-free networks

In this work we propose a parametric network model for generation of complex networks that can inherit statistical properties of real networks. The model is based on different growth processes that are observed in different social contexts, for example, preferential attachment, random attachment with local growth. Further, the parametric model approach for generation of networks is extended and employed into solving the problem of structural reconstruction of real scale-free networks. In this attempt, a 2-parameter network generation model, called Network-Reconstruction-Model…

On the two-way benefit of Earth Observation by satellite and smart systems

11 October, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems, Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems, 3rd Floor, Entrepreneurship Centre, Indian Institute of Science
Bangalore, 560012 India

Smart systems are expected to revolutionize many - if not all - sectors of human activities during the Anthropocene. These systems are highly driven by information in the large sense of the term. Information is manipulated in a variety of forms (data cubes, NoSQL, Hadoop…). It is analyzed using advanced analytics (machine learning, deep learning… ). In this presentation, Dr. Al Bitar will aboard the question of the place of remote sensing from space in smart systems. Naturally, remote sensing…

Using IoT and embedded deep learning for creating dynamic HD maps

Bangalore, 560012 India

Autonomous vehicles require highly accurate maps to function properly. These maps provide contextual awareness and complement the information the vehicle receives from its sensors. These maps need to be dynamically updated to reflect changing road conditions such as accidents and construction zones. Traditional methods have relied on driving around special purpose vehicles equipped with expensive Lidar based sensors. These methods are very expensive and simply not scalable to support frequent updates of a large geographic region. Moreover, in many situations…

Game-theoretic impacts of human decision-making on the robustness of shared resource systems

13 December, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Golden Jubilee Hall, Department of Electrical Communication Engineering, Indian Institute of Sceince
Bangalore, 560012 India

The robustness and security of socio-cyber-physical systems depend critically on the way they are utilized by human decision-makers. While the framework of expected utility theory has traditionally been used to model decision-making under uncertainty, studies in behavioral psychology and economics have shown that the decisions made by humans under uncertainty consistently deviate from those predicted by such classical models. In this talk, we focus on understanding the impacts of human decision-making (captured by Prospect Theory) on the robustness of a shared resource in a game-theoretic framework. In our…

Bangalore, 560012 India

The Internet of Things (IoT) is currently a focus of research. With the advancement of technology and high-performance devices getting smaller by the day, developing new modules for the IoT has never been easier. Using the communication capabilities of small IoT devices, many new applications are being developed every day. But connectivity of the “things” has opened many vulnerabilities to be taken advantage of by the attackers and gain access to the system. There were already many instances where different…
