Video compression has been one of the key technology in multimedia communication. Traditional video compression tries to remove spatial, temporal, and  coding redundancies within video contents to reduce the storage space and transmission bandwidth requirements. Nowadays, advancements in display and camera technology enable new applications for multi-view three-dimensional (3-D) scene communication. 
Speaker's Bio: 
Ming Yang is currently an Associate Professor with School of Computing and Software Engineering at Southern Polytechnic State University. He obtained his BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University (Tianjin, China) in 1997 and 2000 respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Wright State University (Dayton, Ohio) in 2005. His research interests include Information Security, Multimedia Communication, and Mobile Security. He is the author/co-author of over fifty peer-reviewed conference, book chapter, and journal publications, including IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting and International Journal of Information Security and Privacy. He is the reviewer of various prestigious journals and conferences. His research has been supported by US National Science Foundation and Computing Research Association.

Safety Digital I&C Systems and V&V in Nuclear Power Plants

Speaker: 
Dr. Steve Yang
Time: 
Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Abstract 
Instrumentation & Control (I&C) systems are the nervous system of a nuclear power 
plant because I&C systems monitor all aspects of the plant’s health and respond with the 
care and adjustments needed. 
 
Modern nuclear I&C systems are mostly digitized – using computers and 
microprocessors. The design of safety digital I&C systems, those used for reactor trip 
system and engineered safety feature actuation systems, must follow fundamental design
