IEEE Hardtech Summit 2017

IEEE Hardtech Summit is an IEEE forum, owned by the IEEE Region 10 Young Professional, with the objective to bring together entrepreneurs, industry leaders, investors, researchers, community leaders and an exuberant lot of budding minds across Asia. This year, this event is carried out in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in Putrajaya, organised by the IEEE Malaysia Section.

Karen Bartleson — the IEEE President 2017 — is also attending this event. It is a good opportunity to explore the collaboration opportunity among ecosystems in South-East Asia area.

This event is attended by about 50 people, including young engineers, students, entrepreneurs, industrial engineers, etc. The topic includes robotics, fisheries, IoT, new energy source, etc related to hardtech :).

(I use present tense here since I am writing this post while attending the summit)

IEEE Lecture in Telkom University


IEEE Telkom University Student Branch — the most active IEEE Student Branch in Indonesia — invited me to give an IEEE Lecture to their officers & new students (from Electronics engineering, IT, business, etc); in Telkom University, Thursday night. The title of my presentation was Engineers Opportunity in Disruptive Ecosystem; with some information about Telkom’s Indigo program for digital startups.




As a part of ICSGTEIS 2016 (International Conference on Smart-Green Technology in Electrical and Information Systems) organised by Udayana University – and surely sponsored by the IEEE – the IEEE SB Udayana University carried out a workshop on Internet of Things for Smart City, on Saturday 08 October 2016. I was representing the IEEE Indonesia Section to provide a keynote speech on this workshop, with a lecture titled Internet-of-Everything Architecture for Smart City.

BTW, I wore a batik shirt with a motive called “Batik Kuncoro” :). Google it.
