1 Capitalizing on Global Opportunities Lew Terman 2007 IEEE President-Elect Scottsdale, Arizona September 2, 2007

2 What is the IEEE?

3 The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers

4 Which Opportunities? Membership Financial Profession Society/Humanity

5 IEEE Core Purpose –To foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity Envisioned Future –Be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions

6 Total Reg. 1-6 Members Total Reg Members Globalization of IEEE Membership

7 Student Retention 22.0 %

8 IEEE - the Worlds Largest Technical Professional Society Over 375K members - Including 80,000 students - In over 160 countries ~ 1,400 Student Branches 324 Sections 39 Societies, 5 Technical Councils Over 1,600 Chapters

9 IEEE Regions

10 Major Growth Opportunities China India Other potential areas, such as –Eastern Europe –Brazil

11 New Technical Opportunities Biometrics Biotechnology, Bioengineering Distributed Intelligent Networks and Systems Global Earth Observation RFID Power and Energy Organic Electronics.…etc

12 New Technical Opportunities Biometrics Biotechnology, Bioengineering Distributed Intelligent Networks and Systems Global Earth Observation RFID Power and Energy Organic Electronics ….and Systems, Applications, and Solutions

13 Organizational Global Opportunities Facilitate industry/academia interaction Increase involvement with industry Position IEEE as a global NGO – to be able to affect policies Become the major source for Continuing Education, Certification Inspire interest by precollege students Use IEEE-USA modules as pilots for international activities

14 And…. Inspire more activities at local chapter, section, and branch level Create a better organization by increasing communication/interaction and relationships between Sections, Chapters, Student Branches, GOLD…..

15 IEEE - New Directions HISTORICALLY Framework: Technology and discipline focused Roles: –Information collection and dissemination –Quality control –Archival information –Fast turnaround Primary Alignment is research, academia programs; journals, publications Technology Driven, activity based TOMORROW Framework: Issue/Problem focused Roles: –Leadership in shaping the problem and solution space –Collaboration, facilitation, and understanding solution options –Living Best Practice output, not archival products –Aligns with groups industry, academic, government and humanitarian creates large and sometimes untraditional partnerships Goal-based/Project focused; trials prominent

16 Humanitys Top Ten Problems for the next 50 years Energy Water Food Environment Poverty Terrorism & War Disease Education Democracy Population Richard Smalley, Nobel Laureate

17 TAB Technical Grand Challenges 1. Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) 2. Future Boston - Updating Cities with Technology 3. Disaster management 4. Alternative Energy Systems 5. Engineering applied to Healthcare 6. Pandemics 7. CleanTechnology/ Carbon mitigation 8. Green Engineering 9. MegaCities 10. Ubiquitous Nanotechnology 11. Digital Home Healthcare

18 The IEEE and GEOSS Group on Earth Observation (GEO) –72 members including the European Union, with 46 participating organizations Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) –a comprehensive, coordinated, and sustained system to monitor the changing state of the planet ICEO - The IEEE Committee on Earth Observation –The IEEE is actively leading or participating in architecture, standards, user requirements, technical training and education, and capacity building through: Earth Observation Technologies Architecture Definition Standards development Workshops & conferences Technical task teams Internet & public outreach Tutorials and training

19 IEEE CEO Activities New journal: IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing New web-based publication (Earthzine.org), aimed at general public A game for teenagers through a global competition: Eye-on Earth Case studies for professional training in Earth observation with focus on developing countries Standards - facilitation of GEOSS standards Best Practices Registry Leadership of GEO Energy Community of Practice 9 Workshops held in a total of 16 to date, on all continents except Antarctica

20 IEEEs Role in Humanitarian Endeavors Engineering, science, technology and the condition of the world are intimately connected IEEE tenets: –Advance global prosperity –For the benefit of humanity Humanitarian activities of increasing interest to IEEE volunteers

21 Humanitarian Technology Challenge Goals: IEEE with UN Foundation IEEE Partnering with the United Nations Foundation An unprecedented opportunity for a collaboration –to develop technology-based solutions to problems facing the world – particularly in developing regions Develop a systematic approach to applying technology to help solve world problems –Identify problem areas –Define viable goals –Set out to achieve goals in a directed manner –Develop solutions based on areas of critical need –Solutions should be sustainable and adaptable

22 Disaster First Response, Management and Recovery Sustainable Infrastructures Available, Affordable Healthcare Environment- Climate Change Areas of Focus The UNF and IEEE have identified several areas of mutual interest

23 Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) Founded at 1995 at Purdue University –Pioneered by Leah Jamieson Engineering Projects in Community Service –Teams of undergraduates –Multi-year, multi-discipline projects –Solving engineering/technology-based problems –With community service and educational organizations –Students earn academic credit Typical projects have included –Homelessness prevention network database –Environmental protection, environmental engineering –Creating toys for children with disabilities

24 EPICS Now has 18 Universities in a national program Impact –Application of engineering knowledge to real world problems –Communication –Customer awareness –Project management –Leadership –Professionalism –Community involvement –Highly regarded by students, faculty, community

25 Silicon – the New Steel The progress in semiconductor technology, computer organization and architecture, software algorithms and efficiency, and communication technology, has opened tremendous opportunity for advancement of mankind and solution of its major problems.
