Title: Data-driven AI services for Smart Buildings: From Application Innovations to Platform Development
Speaker: Dan Wang
Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
Dan Wang is a Professor at the Department of Computing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. His research interest is in computer networking systems in general and recently he has devoted much of his effort in smart energy systems. He is currently the IEEE/ACM IWQoS steering committee chair and ACM eEnergy steering committee member. He was a General co-Chair of ACM eEnergy 2022, TPC co-Chair of ACM eEnergy 2020 and a TPC co-Chair of IEEE/ACM IWQoS 2020. He won the best papers in ACM eEnergy 2018 and ACM Buildsys 2018. His research results have been adopted by Henderson, Huawei, IBM, etc. He is an advisor of EMSD, the Hong Kong SAR government.
We are at a critical stage in climate change. Countries from all over the world are making commitment in their peak carbon emissions between 2030 – 2050. Energy saving and carbon emission reduction have become a basic demand. Buildings consume 40% of energy world-wide. In cities such as Hong Kong, this number goes to 65%. In this talk, we present how information technologies can contribute to the energy saving of buildings. We present application innovations where information technologies can predict the behaviors of the demand side and the supply side of buildings in much finer granularity. This can help building operations and services to be energy efficient. With the number of applications in smart buildings increasing, managing diverse applications has become a new challenge. We further present the opportunities and challenges of how a software platform should be developed to meet such a need.
Title: Digitalization of Power Systems and Its Security Implications
Speaker: David Yau
Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore
David Yau obtained the B.Sc. from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, all in computer science. He is now Professor in the Information Systems Technology and Design pillar of the Singapore University of Technology and Design. Since 2010, he has been Distinguished Scientist at the Advanced Digital Sciences Center, Singapore, where he is Cybersecurity Program Director. Previously, he was Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University (West Lafayette). His research interests are in networked computer systems, including the security and privacy of cyber-physical systems. He has served in the technical and organizing committees of several international conferences in computer networks, most recently as TPC co-Chair of IFIP/IEEE Networking 2022. He is an Associate Editor for ACM Trans. Sensor Networks and IEEE Trans. Network Science and Engineering. He was previously on the editorial boards of IEEE/ACM Trans. Networking and IEEE Trans. Smart Grid, Special Section on Smart Grid Cyber-Physical Security. He serves in the Management Committee of the Singapore Cybersecurity Consortium (SCC) and chairs the SCC’s SIG in IoT and CPS security.
In this talk, I will review some current trends in power system digitalization. I will then discuss the resulting cybersecurity vulnerabilities and challenges. Finally, I will overview some case study deployment efforts by power companies and researchers.
