Webinar: Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Solutions for Full Electrification of Kenya
Facing challenges of rapid expansion and demand, Kenya’s grid poses a unique challenge in that more than half of its energy generation comes from non-traditional energy sources such as hydro and geothermal, which account for 60 percent. In order to meet an aggressive goal of achieving universal access by 2020, Distributed Energy Resources (DER) will be a large player in the growing Kenya market. As such, conformance to IEEE 1547™ will be a key component in ensuring a robust and efficient infrastructure for what will become a new age of electrification for Kenya.

Webinar: Securing the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain with Blockchain
The fake medicine market is not only a pharmaceutical crime but it is a global epidemic. The World Health Organization estimates that 1% of drugs in the US are counterfeit, 10% in Europe and 30% in emerging regions (Latin America, Middle East, Africa, etc). While the EU, China, and the US offer more robust track and trace and serialization guidance and laws, at the end of the day we have more compliance and less resolution. Is there a means that can potentially combine the regulatory guidance, human resolve, and technology to better safeguard the drug supply chain...

The Human Standard: Why Ethical Considerations Should Drive Technological Design Webinar
In the age of autonomous and intelligent machines, it is more important than ever to help technologists and organizations be cognizant of the ethical implications of the products, services or systems they are building and how they are being built before making them available to the general public. While established Codes of Ethics provide instrumental guidance for employee behavior, new values-centric methodologies are needed to complement these codes to address the growing use of algorithms and personalization in the marketplace.

Advancing Technology for the Benefit of Humanity Using Open Source Technology
While open source software and open standards serve many common goals, there are important differences in the rules and legal tools that have evolved to address their development and use. Just as in open standards development, open source developers can choose from a wide range of rules and tools. This webinar will examine some of those variations, and the reasons why one may be more appropriate than another in a given case. The speakers will also look at how IEEE plans to leverage open source communities and applications for both humanitarian and standards development efforts.
