New Engineering Guides from the Society for Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE)
SFPE Engineering Guide: Piloted Ignition of Solid Materials Under Radiant Exposure
This engineering guide provides methods for predicting piloted ignition of solid materials from thermal radiation. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the Engineering Guide: Assessing Flame Radiation to External Targets from Pool Fires or other methods capable of predicting thermal radiation.
SFPE Engineering Guide: Evaluation of the Computer Fire Model DETACT-QS
This guide is an evaluation of the computer model DETACT‐QS, a model for predicting the response time of ceiling-mounted heat detectors/sprinklers and smoke detectors, installed under large unobstructed ceilings, for fires with user-defined, time-dependent heat release rate curves.
IEEE Tech for Humanity Series @ SXSW
Join IEEE at SXSW Interactive as we host our sixth-annual IEEE Tech for Humanity Series. This 15-event series includes solo, duo, panel sessions, an official party and several meetups.

Open Standards & the Digital Age
A 6-part video series that explores key themes from the book Open Standards & the Digital Age by Andrew L. Russell, this video focuses on the role that standards have played in shaping the Internet, and the role that these standards continue to play today.
The IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit
25 May 2017
The IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit (IEEE VIC Summit) registration page is officially open. IEEE VICS is a one-day summit with first-class technologists as guest speakers/panelists, concluding with the IEEE Honors Ceremony. You don't want to miss this opportunity as IEEE presents its highest awards to the greatest technologists!
Corporate Leadership, AI and the Suburbanization of the Mind Webinar
“Well-designed” AI products have the potential to diminish dissonance from our lives and expose us to only a sliver of the spectrum of human behavior and thought. So, does the human need for dissonance conflict with the commercial mandate to “give the people what they want”? Is there any commercial motivation to make software-guided experiences *less* pleasant? These are important decisions that will largely be made by the leaders of corporations working in the relevant technologies.
