High-speed Electronics: Foundation & Challenges
Mr. Shayan Shahramian
The talk will discuss the advances of state-of-the-art electronics starting with Moore's law, a prediction made in 1965 that components on an integrated circuit would double every 2 years. This has been the foundation of the electronics industry, which has been fueling their advances for decades. Further, challenges facing the semi-conductor industry will be outlined in addition to explaining some of the research that deals with resolving them.
Shayan Shahramian is a PhD Candidate (3rd Year) at the University of Toronto specializing in the field of electronics in electrical engineering. He obtained his MASc and BASc degrees from the university of Toronto in 2011 & 2008, respectively. Shayan is the recepient of the NSERC industry postgraduate scholarship in collaboration with Semtech Corp. He is the recipient of 4 department teaching awards awarded to 3 TAs in the electrical and computer engineering department each term.
Key determinants in adoption and sustainable use of a self-management support system
Mr. Ray Aria
Health self-management is becoming a new emphasis for healthcare systems around the world, in order to improve the effective involvement of patients in their own care and to reduce costs. The new generation of mobile technology (e.g. smartphones) has made many healthcare-related applications such as patient customization, real-time monitoring, etc. possible. Providing online and mobile support for self-management of health for chronically ill patients is a new way of dealing with chronic disease management. In this study, an m-Health system is introduced to support self-management interventions, including support from the care provider, family and social support, education and training, decision support, recreation, and ongoing patient motivation to promote adherence and sustainability of the intervention. A proposed theoretical model for adoption and sustainability of system use is developed, based on UTAUT2 and IS Continuance of Use models, both of which have previously been validated through many other studies. The objective of this paper is to identify and resolve issues surrounding the successful adoption and sustainability of an m-Health system, resulting in commercially sustainable self-management support for chronically ill or disabled patients.
