    Reinventing WI-FI: Technologies Supporting the Applications & Trends of the Future

    This is a joint event organized by the IEEE Oregon Communication Society and the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM). This event is free and open to the Public Event Banner Abstract: Wi-Fi is an outstanding success story. Although it has been around for decades, it continues to evolve by adding new functionalities, improving performance, and delivering new services. It is difficult to imagine going one day without Wi-Fi. In this talk, we will discuss the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology, namely, Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 is a revolution compared to any of the previous Wi-Fi generations because it introduces capabilities that are essential to support a much denser number of devices per access point, best-in-class security, greater capacity, and lower latency. We will cover some performance characteristics of Wi-Fi 6, provide a market update, and conclude with future directions towards Wi-Fi 7.

  • Why Privacy Matters

    Online event

    Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

    In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide. This presentation will focus specifically on why privacy matters, and not on what we should do about it.

    Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

    Speaker bio:

    AJ Rice is a privacy advocate, and the founder & CEO of Privo Mobile. Privo Mobile is a Portland-based tech startup making (private) dumb phones designed for kids with a modern user experience and interface.

  • How to Speak Every Language: A Tour of the International Phonetic Alphabet

    Zoom

    Join us for an interactive tour of IPA and you'll be more confident the next time you open your mouth to speak a new language.

    The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is how linguists classify and organize all the sounds of the world's languages. It has all the consonants, vowels, clicks, and everything in-between that we need to speak, like a periodic table of talking. For language learners, familiarity with IPA is a powerful tool to understand how to make new sounds in their target language.
