IEEE Swiss CAS DLP Georgiou Seminar 2017

IEEE CAS DLP Seminar open to the Swiss engineering community sponsored by the IEEE Swiss CAS/ED chapter

Bioelectronics for Improved Quality of Life 

Prof. Julius Georgiou,

University of Cyprus

10 Nov 2017, 16:00-17:00 

Place: Room Y35 F51, University of Zurich, Irchel

Before the seminar at 15.30, we will hold the CAS/ED annual meeting in Y35 F51. There will be an apero after the seminar.

Microelectronic revolutions come in waves that are driven by necessity. Currently, the aging population is creating a need for various kinds of electronic systems to improve their quality of life. These include the restoration of lost functionality via electronic implants, better health screening technology and non-invasive monitoring in the home environment. In this talk I will present work that has been done towards addressing these needs, whether it be through the development of new required building blocks or through the development of more complex systems that combine custom built hardware and software. In particular the talk covers work done towards developing a vestibular implant for balance restoration, a single chip low-power imager for a bionic eye, a cancer screening capsule for detecting early-stage carcinomas in the small intestine and a bio-inspired acoustic scene analysis system.

Julius Georgiou is a member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, is the Vice-Chair of the BioCAS Technical Committee, as well as a member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee. He served as the General Chair of the 2010 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference and is the Action Chair of the EU COST Action ICT-1401 on “Memristors-Devices, Models, Circuits, Systems and Applications - MemoCIS”. Prof. Georgiou has been selected as an IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer for 2016-2017. He is also is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems and Associate Editor of the Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering Journal. He is a recipient of a best paper award at the IEEE ISCAS 2011 International Symposium and at the IEEE BioDevices 2008 Conference. His research interests include Low-power analog and digital ASICs, implantable biomedical devices, bioinspired electronic systems, electronics for space, brain-computer-interfaces (BCIs), memristive devices, inertial and optical sensors and related systems.
