“How AI is Empowering a Non-Collision Driving World: Possibilities, Limitations & Next Steps”
Speaker: Artur Filipowicz, Chief Technical Officer, Soterea
Since 2012, training of deep learning algorithms on large datasets using GPUs has powered another AI revolution. This combination of technologies has been applied, with various levels of success, to everything from driving to summarizing legal documents. What is behind this revolution? How can it make current vehicles safer? What is left to do for cars to be fully autonomous? While deep learning can solve some problems with perception and control, it introduces additional difficulties associated with data collection and testing. Soterea has been developing collision avoidance systems for commercial vehicles since 2014. Since that time, its systems have traveled more than 1 billion kilometers on over 100 different models of vehicles. Its CTO, Artur Filipowicz ’17, will explain how collision avoidance technologies and AI intersect and pave the way for autonomous vehicles. There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions submitted in advance to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Speaker: Rich Hollingsworth ’71
Director of Operations, High Asset Tagging, Tego, Inc.
“Radio-Frequency ID in Aerospace, Life Sciences & Beyond:
Collecting, Storing, Managing and Using Intelligent Asset Data”
Managing high value assets, by simple Internet of Things (IoT) connection to “Big Data,” leads to
inefficiencies in handling large volumes of disparate data over long periods (e.g., decades). Asset
identification by reading barcode or RFID EPC and sending to “Big Data” to retrieve asset data is
likewise limiting, where Internet protocols don’t make sense due to cost, latency, or environmental
conditions. But “intelligent assets” use RFID tags with asset data permanently stored on the asset and
read by a simple RFID reader --- eliminating the need for “Big Data.” After describing how Tego delivers
its high memory RFID technology core “intelligent assets” in the aerospace and life science industries,
Rich Hollingsworth will delineate the semiconductor and software development challenges yet to be
met, before “intelligent assets” can be extended to many other industries.

Speaker: David Herman, MD
Chair, Infection Control, Penn Medicine Princeton Health
“An Up-to-Date Briefing on COVID-19 Infection:
And Dealing with this Pandemic at the Local Level”
Over the past few months, many of us have expanded our virology and infectious disease awareness.
Likewise, epidemiologists, researchers and front-line health care workers have garnered an enhanced
respect from a grateful public. So, it is with special pleasure that the Propellers welcome Infectious
Disease specialist David Herman for a global perspective on our historic pandemic. In particular, he will
discuss how epidemiologists determine the contagiousness of infectious diseases, then delve into the
different types of laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2, and their attendant implications for controlling
infection spread. He will then delineate changes Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center has implemented
in response to COVID-19. You may find his facts bracing, but the power of human resilience will also be on
offer. Please note: Zoom Propellers now reach a national (and global) audience, so it’s important to
register: the first 300 people who sign up by June 7th will receive the “Join Meeting Link” on June 8th.
To Receive ZOOM LINK: Registration Required by June 7th via propellers.princetonaaa.org

The Princeton Area Alumni Association annual meeting for 2020 featured a fireside chat with Princeton graduate students Xiyue and Hua Qu. Xiyue was taken prisoner in Iran in 2016 and held there for three years, as Hua worked tirelessly for his release while caring for their young child Shaofan. This was a rare opportunity to learn about the details of his imprisonment, his conclusions regarding the nature of the Iranian regime, and the prospects of engagement between Iran and the USA.
