Title : "Simulating Human Vision and Vision Correcting Displays"

Abstract :

Present research on simulating human vision and on vision correcting displays that compensate for the optical aberrations in the viewer’s eyes will be discussed. The simulation is not an abstract model but incorporates real measurements of a particular individual’s entire optical system. In its simplest form, these measurements can be the individual’s eyeglasses prescription; beyond that, more detailed measurements can be obtained using an instrument that captures the individual’s wavefront aberrations. Using these measurements, synthetics images are generated. This process modifies input images to simulate the appearance of the scene for the individual. Examples will be shown of simulations using data measured from individuals with high myopia (near-sightedness), astigmatism, and keratoconus, as well as simulations based on measurements obtained before and after corneal refractive (LASIK) surgery.
Recent work on vision-correcting displays will also be discussed. Given the measurements of the optical aberrations of a user’s eye, a vision correcting display will present a transformed image that when viewed by this individual will appear in sharp focus. This could impact computer monitors, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Vision correction could be provided in some cases where spectacles are ineffective. One of the potential applications of possible interest is a heads-up display that would enable a driver or pilot to read the instruments and gauges with his or her lens still focused for the far distance. This research was selected by Scientific American as one of its ten annual “World Changing Ideas.”

Title : "Computing for the future: Beyond CMOS and Beyond Von-Neumann"

Abstract :

Emerging applications are extremely demanding in terms of storage, computing power and energy efficiency. On the other hand, both today’s computer architectures and device technologies are facing major challenges making them incapable to deliver the required functionalities and features. All of these have led to the slowdown of the traditional device scaling. In order for computing systems to continue deliver sustainable benefits for the foreseeable future society, alternative computing architectures and notions have to be explored in the light of emerging new device technologies.
This talk will first address the limitation of both CMOS scaling and today’s computing architectures. Then the concept of computation-in-memory based on non-volatile emerging devices will be discussed. Logic and arithmetic circuit designs enabling such architectures will be covered. The huge potential of such architecture in realizing order of magnitude improvement in terms of computing and energy efficiency will be illustrated by comparing it with the state-of-the art architectures for different data-intensive applications.

Title : "SCALE: Smart City as an off-campus Learning Environment"

Abstract :

It is clear that all big world cities will need to transform to a smart city within the next two decades, in order to improve the efficient use of its infrastructure, to decrease its operational costs, to improve the quality of life and to foresee its energetic needs while dealing with a fast growing city population.
At this very moment many cities are going trought this transformation and the need for personal to build and manage these upcomming smart cities is growing exponentially. Education is playing a major role in the preparation of the right skilled persons and as such we have built some educational tools, which transform a smart city into an open laboratory, where students can improve and practice Science, Mathematics, Technology and Engineering. During this talk we will lay down a basis on the required skills to build and manage smart cities and we will demonstrate how we have transformed those needs into the SCALE tool which has been implemented and tested during the last two years in our Engineering Education.

He is a full member of the Industrial Engineering department, and associated member of the Electronics and Informatics department. His research interests include reconfigurable computing systems, embedded hardware design, sensor arrays, acoustics, environmental monitoring and embedded energy harvesting. He has cooperated in, and coordinated several projects on national level (IWT,INNOVIRIS) and on European level (ITEA, EraSME). His research output includes 100+ co-authored articles, as well as 6 co-authored book chapters. He has been co-chair of the Mini-symposium ParaFPGA at the PARCO-conference in 2011,2013 and 2015 and is TPC member for several workshops and conferences (IEEE EUROCON, CloudTech, NGNS, NGNS, CSICT, iCEER, ParaFPGA, FMEC). At VUB (INDI-department) he heads the RAPPTORLAB research group. His research group is specialized in applied embedded systems with an emphasis on four research axes: low-power reconfigurable architectures for embedded computing, embedded Energy Harvesting, smart sensors and actuators, and embedded security. Those research activities are concentrating on developing enhanced solutions for environmental monitoring, smart sensing, indoor localization and innovative educational platforms.
