Electromagnetic Sensing and Treatment of Living Things: Using Microwaves to Detect and Treat Disease in Humans and Trees

November 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
RMIT UNI Bld 80, Level 2, Room 3 Swanston St Melbourne

Electromagnetic Sensing and Treatment of Living Things: Using Microwaves to Detect and Treat Disease in Humans and Trees Because of their ability to penetrate and heat, electromagnetic waves have found use in several unusual applications, specifically in interaction with biological tissue. Microwave radar has been used as an anatomic imaging modality for detecting breast cancer, and THz radiation is being proposed for vulnerable plaque identification. Using a simple conformal antenna, microwave sensing of trees can alert arborists if there is…

Motion and depth modelling for media compression and beyond

November 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Newton room, level 5, EEE building, The University of Melbourne.

Title: Motion and depth modelling for media compression and beyond Speaker: Professor David Taubman Abstract: This presentation is concerned with novel ways to describe and reason with motion and disparity information, considering both compression and frame/view interpolation. In video compression, motion is almost invariably described at the (target) frames that need to be predicted from other previously decoded (reference) frames. This target-anchored motion provides a convenient heuristic for motion-compensated prediction, but cannot easily be re-purposed for the prediction or synthesis…

Educating the Edisons of the 21st Century: Integrating thinking heuristics (including TRIZ) into the engineering curriculum

November 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
RMIT Bldg 80, Level 7, Room 58 445 Swanston St

ABSTRACT Research evidence on the ability of engineering programs to nurture advanced cognitive skills in graduates is inconclusive. Some authors reported on failures of current engineering programs to enhance students’ skills in problem solving and idea generation (e.g. Daly, Mosyjowski, & Seifert, 2014; Steiner et al., 2011). Others wrote on successes in enhancing problem solving and creativity skills of engineering students (e.g. Belski, Baglin, & Harlim, 2013; Bruck et al., 2007). Therefore, to update curricula in the era when soft…
