Calgary Branch Luncheon: Prepare for a Future with Artificial Intelligence

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Calgary Branch is excited to welcome Robin Winsor, President and CEO of Cybera, to discuss preparing for a future with artificial intelligence.

Register by December 9, 2018

It is becoming difficult to keep up with the exciting and sometimes alarming technology news that emerges every day: from AI-generated video making it impossible to tell real from fake, to bots controlling conversations on social media. Somewhere... humans are trying to figure out what’s left for them to do.

When the atomic bomb was developed in World War II, political leaders were able to control who had access to the means and development of that new and powerful piece of technology. Today, government cannot control the proliferation of new tech. The pace of change is simply too fast for legislative, regulatory, and educational systems to keep up. If we cannot look to our political leaders to set the the codes of conduct for new technologies, then who will? In the next few decades, we will need to develop a new relationship between humans and machines.

This talk will discuss some of the ways we can benefit from those changes, the perils if we don’t adapt, and what all this will demand of us.

About the Presenter

Robin Winsor is a highly influential visionary and executive in the technology field, who is known for being both a playful and provocative agent of change. Over the course of his extraordinary career, Robin invented the world’s first direct digital x-ray imaging device, and has led a not-for-profit technology accelerator to become one of Canada’s most vocal champions for the digitally disadvantaged.

Robin joined Cybera, a not-for-profit operator of Alberta’s Research and Education Network, as President and CEO in 2010. Under his leadership, the company’s mandate has expanded to provide digital services to Alberta’s K-12, First Nations, and public sectors. Cybera is now widely credited for overseeing the continuous development of Alberta’s cyber-infrastructure, while advocating on a national and international stage for improvements to the availability and accessibility of technology for all Canadians.

Robin is widely sought after as a speaker on the future of technology. He is a past recipient of a Manning Innovation Award, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstanding service to Canada.

Project Everest: Reaching New Heights in Project Management

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.

Register by December 7, 2018

*First 16 registrants will receive a FREE copy of Alan Mallory's book, The Family That Conquered Everest, on the day of the session.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.  From teetering across ladders spanning seemingly bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night, every segment of the climb was filled with intense, extraordinary challenges.

Alan's dynamic session focuses on developing project managers and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the PD skills and project management expertise that are essential for success in any project. It highlights the processes, tools and project stages that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project.

The underlying message is about how we, as project managers, need to reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take to advance our profession and achieve breakthrough performance.

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Empower team members to make critical decisions
  • Use hybrid methods of incorporating agile project management
  • Make prompt project decisions and take appropriate action
  • Effective collaboration and team interaction
  • Adapt to the environment and revised customer requirements
  • Continually identify and evaluate risks

Assertiveness: A Powerful Communication Skill For Career Success

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Register by December 10, 2018

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.

Calgary Branch PD Evening: Demystifying Geophysics for Engineers

5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This presentation assumes a basic understanding of Newtonian physics and expands on that to demonstrate that a seismic shoot is a geomechanical experiment. The net result should be to de-mystify geophysics, and particularly seismic.

Register by January 6, 2019

Geophysics is the application of physics to geology. This presentation assumes a basic understanding of Newtonian physics and will expand on that to demonstrate that a geophysical seismic shoot is a geomechanical experiment. It will be shown how the geomechanical properties of seismic data can be used to determine elastic properties of rocks, such as Poisson’s ratio, Young’s modulus, compressibility, and rigidity. Compressibility and rigidity are used to interpret oil and gas reservoir properties, such as sand and shale proportions, and fluids that cause the seismic response. Both the elastic and reservoir properties can be compared to known reservoirs and modern geology to interpret the depositional setting and determine the best analogues to use in developing reservoir models. The net result of this presentation should be to demystify the use of geophysics, and particularly seismic.

About the Presenter

David Gray P.GeophIn 2015, David Gray, P.Geoph., was honoured for his contributions to value in geophysics as the honoree of the fourth annual Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG) Symposium. David is the 2018-19 CSEG Distinguished Lecturer. David has made significant contributions to: quantitative interpretation, where three AVO equations have his name on them; seismic fracture characterization, where in 1999 he related azimuthal variations in 3D seismic to fractures in the borehole and where he holds a patent; and in seismic geomechanics, where in 2009 he showed that all three principal stresses can be estimated from 3D seismic data and where he also holds a patent.

David joined Nexen, now CNOOC International, in 2010. He moved to the CNOOC International’s Global Exploration and International Development group in 2016 as a Senior Geophysical Advisor. David spends the bulk of his time working on AVO in Guyana, offshore Canada, and 4D’s from across Nexen’s portfolio. In his previous 6 years at Nexen, David worked in their Oil Sands division. Prior to that, David did 17 years of research for Veritas and CGG in reservoir characterization and seismic signal analysis using experience gained as AVO specialist and seismic data processor for Veritas, Geo-X Systems, and Seismic Data Processors, as well as from his internship in the special projects group at Gulf Canada.

David received a Bachelor of Science in Honours Geophysics from the University of Western Ontario (1984) and a Masters of Mathematics in Statistics from the University of Waterloo (1989). David is a member of SPE, SEG, CSEG, EAGE, and APEGA. He has published and presented about 140 papers within these societies’ journals and conferences and holds three patents. He is a registered Professional Geophysicist in the province of Alberta.

In his spare time, David likes to spend time with his family, write and present technical papers, work with students and young professionals, and participate in volleyball and grassroots motorsports.

Lethbridge Branch Lunch 'n Learn: Parking Meter Replacement Project & Traffic Signal Operations in Lethbridge

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., and Dr. Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., as they discuss traffic signal operations and replacing the parking meters in the city of Lethbridge.

Register by January 20, 2019

Many residents and engineers wonder why the City of Lethbridge is not using SMART technologies to make traffic signals smarter. Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., will introduce some “new” detection technologies in Lethbridge, such as 4-cameras video system, 4-radar system, single 360-dome camera, and thermal detectors. With these detectors’ inputs, what is the current standard (or better) practice to do signal timing using today’s “modern” signal controllers (brain) – the control logistics? Are there opportunities for improvements?

Jinsong will also explain why the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) in Canada and USA is promoting “modern roundabouts” as a viable alternative, which “can be better than traffic signals”. Some of us have experienced or heard about modern roundabouts being more efficient than traffic signals, but few know there are fewer severe injuries or fatal collisions, when compared to traffic signals.

There are over 1,526 metered parking stalls and approximately 396 unmetered/time restricted parking stalls in downtown Lethbridge.

Most of parking meters in Lethbridge have reached or exceeded their lifespan, and maintenance of the current parking meters continues to be a growing challenge. An upgrade of the system was needed to fulfill the changing needs of the users as well as to improve the efficiency of Parking Operations.

Walker Parking Consultants were retained to undertake a technical study and provide evaluation and recommendation with regard to the parking technology for Lethbridge. Also, a number of internal Technical Committee meetings, review meetings with external stake holders, and two public engagement sessions were undertaken as part of this project. Based on the results of the technical study and evaluation, as well asstakeholder and public inputs, a hybrid option consisting of Pay-by-Plate Multi-Space Machines (MSMs) with License Plate Recognition (LPR) enforcement and Single Space Smart Meters (SSSMs) at accessible parking spaces and isolated locations with foot patrol enforcement was recommended; installation is currently in progress. Newer payment methods – such as pay by credit card and pay by cell phone – are also planned to be implemented with this change. Dr, Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., will provide an overview of this process with particular emphasis on technology options and public and stakeholder engagement.

About the Presenters

Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., MASc., has been working as a Traffic Signal Engineer with the City of Lethbridge since 2008. Before moving to Lethbridge, Jinsong worked 8 years with the City of Santa Barbara, California, managing a mini-Traffic Management Center and was responsible for the operation of approximately 120 traffic signals as well as oversight of the city’s pavement markings and signs. He also had first-hand experience working on the first multi-lane modern roundabout since the year 2000 while in California. His earlier work with a consultant exposed him to signal safety and operations in numerous cities in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Michigan.

Dr. Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., is currently the Transportation Engineering Manager at the City of Lethbridge. In this role, he manages transportation planning and city's traffic and parking operations. Ahmed is a professional engineer registered in Alberta, and the State of Maryland. He is also a professional traffic operations engineer. Prior to moving to Lethbridge in January 2009, Ahmed worked for Watt Consulting Group in Calgary and Parsons Brinckerhoff International in the Middle East.
