Abstract: Emerging Opportunities based on Interconnecting the Smart Things as well as Smart Energy
The internet of smart things and the internet of smart energy led a landscape change to the traditional approach for the distribution of electric energy. The increasing demand for the zero emission vehicles has been another influential factor to the need of further updates to the energy distribution infrastructure. This talk explores the emerging opportunities from the changing framework.
Dr. Michael M. Hsieh created Smart Grid Technology Series for UC Berkeley Extension by developing and teaching 7 new courses since the beginning of 2010. Prior to that, he has worked at Sun Microsystems Inc. for 20 years where he and the design teams he worked with designed and delivered 3 generations of Sun’s servers and workstations for datacenters and cloud computing applications, and also designed and delivered 3 generations of UltraSPARC microprocessor chips that powered Sun platforms.
In addition, he spent 2.5+ years in designing director class Storage Area Network (SAN) switches for datacenters. Before all of that, he was one of the lead design engineers for multiple embedded microcomputer chips at Intel and Ford Micro-Electronics Inc. for 7+ years. His current interests include the design and realization of energy efficient infrastructure as well as Smart and Eco-friendly Cities.
