Advances in Wireless Communication: 5G and LI-FI

Date: May 8, 2019 (Wednesday) 7:00 - 9:00 pm (registration at 6:30PM)

Venue: ITRI Int’l, 2870 Zanker Rd., Suite #140, San Jose, CA

The speaker will present the technology behind 5G and Light Fidelity. Come and learn about them!


5G is the next generation wireless communication technology and it promises a whole suite of dramatic improvements. It can achieve speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G, 100 times more connected devices, 100x energy efficiency,  and10x latency reduction. It will help kick-start the Internet of Things, since it was designed to connect billions of machines, appliances, and sensors at low cost without draining their batteries.

Li-Fi is a new technology that uses light to transmit data. It offers several advantages like working across higher bandwidth, working in areas susceptible to electromagnetic interference (e.g. aircraft cabins, hospitals) and offering higher transmission speeds.

This two hour seminar will present an overview of 5G (technology, new capabilities, applications) and also present Li-FI technology (how it works, Li-Fi vs Wi-Fi, advantages, disadvantages, and applications)

近幾年來,中醫在世界各地快速發展,中醫藥產業總值大幅成長,受到許多國家及主流醫療體系的關注。世界衛生組織WHO於2018年正式把三千多個中醫症狀及診斷列入ICD-11(International Classification of Diseases),為中醫融入主流醫學做準備。中國國務院於2016年頒布「中醫藥發展戰略規劃綱要」,把中醫藥發展列為未來15年(2016~2030)國家發展的重大核心政策,大力推展中醫藥臨床應用外,亦強調利用互聯網、大數據、人工智能等高科技來提升傳統中醫藥產業,並計畫訓練15萬名西醫轉化為中醫, 積極普及中醫各個省市鎮村,並輸出到世界。
面對如此大的轉變與商機,你對中醫的了解有多少?中醫就只是養養生、哪裡痛哪裡針灸拔罐、吃什麼補什麼?還是高談闊論的讓人覺得玄而又玄、虛無飄渺?中醫真的能治療重症、急症嗎?坊間似是而非、誇大不實的宣傳,你又能分辨多少?美洲中國工程師學會舊金山分會特地舉辦中醫概論短期課程,介紹正統中醫的基本概念, 以科學精神及臨床實證來認識中醫,讓學員們有正確的開端。
