Speech Title: 'Mega trend of Technology and Social Paradigm, Emotional Technology in 4th Wave era of 21Century'


Abstract: The idea of “fourth wave” is suggested Alvin Toffler's historical wave theory originally propounded in “The Third Wave” (circa 1980). And the WEF (World Economic Forum) dealt with the theme of the Fourth Industrial Revolution as Annual Meeting 2016 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.
They predicted the Fourth Industrial Revolution as building on the Digital Revolution, representing new ways in which technology becomes embedded within societies and even the human body such as robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, quantum computing, biotechnology, IoT (Internet of Things, 3D printing, and autonomous vehicles.
It means these technologies will lead economy and can give opportunities to get a job. So, as researcher and engineer, we should create on how an institution is organized, how it defines operation, how it relates to surrounding communities or teams, how it responds to research solutions or the results, and how it takes part in the strategies and plan.
With the results, technology will go to convergences and smart which gives an impact to works in plan for research, education. For that it needs research experiences.
This lecture deals with research topic’s paradigm and emotional technology and the AIS (Artificial Intelligence Soft computing) from experience. Conclusion suggests many possible approaches and why it is important at this point to introduce emotion in industry and how we can obtain a good idea for emotion as topic of 4th wave through experience.

Speech Title: Malaysia in Context IR4.0; Challenges and Opportunities


Abstract: The Fourth Industrial Revolution is the combination of the internet with a new ability to directly control the physical world, including the machines, factories and infrastructure that define the modern landscape. Transformations around the world are fuelled in a large part by technology and advancements in science. From biotechnology in Asia to AI in Silicon Valley, to Blockchain and global supply chains, technologies are creating ripple effects that impact societies and their institutions and their economies. These technologies are likely to entirely transform the ways in which we live, work and interact with one another. Taking stock of these new technologies as well as their disruption potential is critical for all nations and especially emerging economies like Malaysia.

Speech Title: Performance Analysis of SLTC-D2D Handover Mechanism in Software Defined Networks


Abstract: The proliferation of the number of mobile devices and huge data rate requirement influence the present generation of the cellular and mobile communications. The next generation networks provide novel architectures and technologies like SDN, Machine to Machine (M2M) etc. which have the ability to meet the speed and the data rate that could support densely populated network areas. The conventional communication mechanism involves the traversal of the message via the eNodeB. The communication takes analogy from the client-server model in networks, wherein the eNodeB’s act as servers and the User Equipment’s (UEs) as clients. The concept of overhead accumulates to a large extent whenever the data is traversed via the eNodeB. With the inception of Device to Device (D2D) communication, the UEs that are close to each other can communicate directly without the involvement of the eNodeB. The main idea of D2D communications approach for cellular networks isfor the eNodeB to refrain from sending the same information numerous times on request by multiple users.The general information transfer delay that is occurred during cellular communication is reduced using user initiated traffic spreading technique that is dependent on the D2D links between the users.The D2D users can have their share of the spectrum accessing it as secondary users alongside the cellular users or can explicitly have their own spectrum on a non-sharing basis along with cellular users, which is termed as inband-underlay communication and inband- overlay communication respectively. The utilization of WiFi and D2D links between cellular users improve the overall network performance during the uplink transmission.The core concept of D2D mechanism is to basically support the connectivity during disaster situations i.e., Public Safety scenarios.
