Abstract: In light of the trend of consumerizing nearly everything, it should be prudent to re-evaluate US utility industry and the monolithic power grids in place.
Should the current business model of US utility industry be the golden template for the foreseeable future in US? Should the current power distribution system still be the way of the future in US in light of the campaign for deploying smart grids? This talk would attempt to propose some food for thoughts.
Speaker Bio: Dr. Michael M. Hsieh created Smart Grid course suite for UC Berkeley Extension by developing and teaching 7 new courses. Before that, he has worked at Sun Microsystems Inc. for nearly 20 years where he and his design team designed and delivered 3 generations of Sun’s workstations and servers for datacenters and cloud computing, and also designed and delivered 3 generations of UltraSPARC microprocessor chips that powered Sun platforms. Dr. Hsieh also spent 2.5+ years designing director class Storage Area Network (SAN) switch for datacenters. Prior to joining Sun, Dr. Hsieh was a lead engineer for designing multiple microcontroller chips for controlling the embedded systems, such as the modern day smart grids and Internet of Things, at Intel and Ford for 7+ years.
Dr. Hsieh’s current interests include the design and realization of energy efficient infrastructure including Smart and Eco-friendly Cities, Smart Grids, Internet of Things, and Smart Microgrids.
Chinese American Renewable Energy Society (CARES) founded in 2009 in Silicon Valley by a small group of professionals who shared their common interests in alternative sources of clean energy, energy efficiency, and global environmental sustainability, is to promote renewable energy and clean technology to Chinese American communities by providing a common platform, services, activities and education. Now CARES has merged with the Chinese Institute of Engineers USA San Francisco Bay Area Chapter to become the CleanTech Group of CIE/USA-SF..

Session I: Social Cloud
A new technology revolution is emerging in the Silicon Valley. Social networking is creating internet traffic which in turn is pushing the cyber commerce. The impact of supporting the bandwidth, and speed to keep everyone connected in the world create a huge demand for semiconductor. The connectivity by smart phones, e-readers, and tablet PC as well as the traditional notebook and PC is now the growth engine for memory, touch sensor, WIFI, and MCU devices. Cloud computing is converging as a social and business platform for entertainment as well as information innovation. The backbone of the cloud is the infrastructure of server farms and IP security which is also source of innovation in semiconductor. The combination of social network and cloud computing will create new 21th century society where our personal life is enriched and career opportunities are expanded.

Session II: Culture Fusion
Asians have a long civilization history in their native continents and Asian immigrants have become one of the key ethnic components of the United States. Comparing to other ethnic groups, Asian Americans have taken a long way to achieve today's status, and are still actively pursuing their fair share of cultural, political and economical rights. This panel has 4 heavy weight Asian activists (Dr. Fred Hsia, Dr. Chenming Hu, Dr. Talin Hsu and Mr. Ling Wu) to discuss about the two Cultures, political and social activism, leadership and success in the main stream society. It will benefit both new comers and established Asians in the US, including the Asian engineers and the entrepreneurs.
