Public Visibility: IEEE Tech Experts in the Media

When media outlets need technical commentary for articles, the IEEE Public Visibility Committee can consult its roster of IEEE Technical Experts. The list contains members from around the world who are experts on different technical areas. Recently, eight different IEEE Technical Experts were featured in top news outlets including Wired, U.S. News & World Report, Fox News Online, and Inc.com. These outlets generate millions of unique visitors per month (UVPM), and the interactions strengthen relationships with reporters — who keep coming back to IEEE to find experts for their stories.

IEEE Senior Member Tom Coughlin was interviewed for the Inc.com article “Harnessing the Power of the IoT,” for his input on the cost savings and greater efficiency small and midsize businesses can leverage in this new wave of connectivity. Earlier in the year, he discussed what technologies the “tech titans” need to focus on in order to lead the way and capture the connected device market in the U.S. News & World Report article, “Which Stocks Will Win the Smart Home Revolution?“.

In “The five industries leading the IoT revolution,” William Webb, IEEE Fellow, offers advice on what the spread of IoT devices mean for industries leading investments in the technologies that are changing how we live and work. In the article, IEEE Senior Member Valorie King focuses on growth of IoT in the healthcare industry.  This article was featured on ZDNet.

Paul Kostek, IEEE Senior Member, discusses the advent of the drone economy in the Seattle Business article “Welcome to the Drone Economy.”

IEEE Senior Member Kevin Du talks about VPNs and their ability to both harm and safeguard our products in the Wired article “Beware: Most Mobile VPNs Aren’t as Safe as They Seem”.

In the Wired article, “That Encrypted Chat App the White House Liked? Full of Holes” Sven Dietrch, IEEE Senior Member, and Kevin Curran, IEEE Senior Member, discuss security flaws and data accessibility and code audits. Deitrch also contributed to the Security Ledger podcast “CIA Hacking Tools, Our Orwellian Internet of Things & G-Men can subpoena Memories?” where he discusses hacking television sets, car, and other IoT devices.

Richard Baraniuk, IEEE Fellow, shares his thoughts on how AI systems can help identify negative behavior on popular social mediums like Twitter in the Fox News Online article “How Twitter could use artificial intelligence to cut online harassment”.

These recently featured IEEE Technical Experts represent 11 different IEEE Societies, demonstrating the breadth of knowledge of the IEEE membership.

The IEEE Public Visibility Committee is always interested in adding new technical experts to their roster.  If you would like to be considered for an IEEE Technical Expert, please contact  IEEE Public Visibility Chair Tom Coughlin at tom@tomcoughlin.com – or learn more on the IEEE Public Visibility Committee website.
