Chicago Chapter

The Computer Society (CS), Chicago Chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) serves engineering and computer professionals in the twelve counties of the greater Chicago area. As part of the Chicago Section, the CS Chapter provides a local interface to the worldwide network of the IEEE. In addition, the CS Chapter organizes technical presentations, social events, and networking opportunities of interest to computer professionals. We partner with FutureCon to bring cybersecurity conferences to IEEE Computer Society Chicago members.  We also work with the Chicago Chapter of the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) to co-host joint technical events.  Our topics deal with computing and information technology such as big data and data science, connected vehicles, IoT, machine learning and AI, software development, user experience and design, parallel and distributed computing, quantum computing, cybersecurity, computer education and visualization.

For further information or to find out about volunteer or speaking opportunities contact Alvin Chin.

Upcoming Events

A Computational Digital-Physical Interface for Infrastructure Production

Volker Mueller

Wednesday, March 17, 2021, 6-7 PM

In this talk we will review the obstacles to automation: for example location dependency or the materials used in construction with their behaviors, tolerances, and properties. We will outline opportunities for computation seen in prototypical implementations and with practice innovations. We will also look at the effect of automation on the infrastructure lifecycle: planning, design, supply chain and workforce considerations, construction logistics, maintenance, and any decommissioning and demolition.
