Today I giving a technical seminar to the BCIT School of Energy faculty and students. My understanding is that a will be a large number of people RSVP’ed. I will give a 40 minute presentation with a 10 minute Q&A session. My main focus will be on how faculty, students, and researchers for both computing and engineering can work together to tackle sustainability problems.
I will demonstrate this by discussing how in computing we can use load disaggregation or noninstrutive (appliance) load monitoring (NILM) to understand how different homes and the occupants within consume power/energy. I will then related that to the hardware/electronics created by engineering students that I helped mentor.
My Senior Supervisor Dr Fred Popowich will join me as an audience member.
