Isamu Akasaki (IEEE Life Fellow), Hiroshi Amano (IEEE member), and Shuji Nakamura were awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize for “having invented a new energy-efficient and environment-friendly light source – the blue light-emitting diode (LED).”

Dr. Isamu Akasaki’s and Dr. Shuji Nakamura’s articles on GaN-based LED technology are featured in the Proceedings of the IEEE October 2013 Special Issue, which honored the 50th anniversary of the LED.



Professor Ramesh Karri (New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering) introduces the Proceedings special issue on Trustworthy Hardware.

Bioinspired Imaging Technologies and Techniques
17 March 2015
The biological world has crafted remarkable solutions to an incredible range of visual sensing and imaging problems. For example, vision conveys such tremendous survival advantages that around 50 different types of eyes (visual receptors) have evolved independently over time. This adaptability is the thrust of the October 2014 special issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE. The guest editors also discuss the ways in which scientists and engineers can take advantage of existing biological solutions to derive their bioinspired technological counterparts.
Paper Explores How Technology Will Underpin Change
6 March 2015
It is argued that if you adapt the environment to promote certain behaviors, then people will modify their behaviors accordingly. The aim is to provide a constant reminder of what behaviors are desired. Technology has been evolving such that it can increasingly provide these reminders in just the right situations. A recent special issue, published in the Proceedings of the IEEE, explores the latest technological changes in areas such as the Internet of Things that will underpin this movement.
The Internet of Things Will Be a Giant Persuasion Machine
1 March 2015
As internet-connected devices continue to proliferate, forming the backbone of the Internet of things, the strategies of persuasion in the online world will bleed into the offline one. This is the future of behavior modification, according to a recent special issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE, titled “The Digital Age And the Future Of Social Network Science And Engineering.” 
He Has a Great Personality: Using Digital Footprints to Segment Markets
24 February 2015
Understanding consumer personality is challenging because what consumers think and feel, how they live their lives, and what things they value are inaccessible. With the advent of social networks and mobile devices that create a digital footprint of individual consumers, such information is readily available. In their paper, Lambiotte and Kosinksi discussed the use of consumers’ digital footprints to infer personality.
28 January 2015
Medical implants provide numerous benefits to patients who cannot afford to have regular visits from a doctor or travel to their GP. But if they are really going to make an impact in healthcare, they need a power source that's more efficient than batteries. That is what Walk, et al., have been working on in their recent paper “Remote Powered Medical Implants for Telemonitoring.”
