  1. CmpE Seminar: Beyond Dive Computers
    • Start time: 12:00pm, Tuesday, September 27th
    • End time: 01:00pm, Tuesday, September 27th
    • Where: AVS Conference Room, BM
    • Title: Beyond Dive Computers
      Speaker: Salih Murat Egi
      Man's Odyssey in the underwater world dates back to the known written history. Exploring, living, working and having fun Underwater attracted the human kind for centuries. However, diving lead us to an extreme environment beyond the limits of normal physiology. One major stress is imposed by the increased pressure and brings further problems in case breathing is ensured by the use of SCUBA. Biologically inert gases dissolve in the body tissue during underwater breathing at ambient pressure and bubbles form in the blood stream and in the body tissues if the adequate decompression schedule is not maintained. The identical problem existsfor astronauts that leave space craft for EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity). Dive computers monitor environmental and physiological parameters and compute safe ascent protocols. This tedious task of human body modeling opens new area for explorations of inner and outer space. This seminar will be outlining the design procedures to be followed in the development of the state of the art dive computers and as well as the basic research activities that are feeding the decompression research such as: Bio impedance analysis for fat-water content of the body, signal procession for the detection of intravascular bubbles, data mining to segment diver groups, multicriteria analysis and genomics to find best performants, telemedicine tools to validate the efficiency of the breathing devices.

      S. Murat Egi has graduated from Electrical Engineering Department of Bogaziçi University, and completed his MSc and Ph.D. studies on Biomedical Engineering at the same university. He was an active member of the SCUBA diving club of the university (BUSAS) and his passion for the underwater world let him combined his academic career with diving. He organized the first "Underwater Science and Technology" meeting in 1996. He planned and directed 7 high altitude diving expedition where 500 dives were performed at altitudes up to 4000m. He completed his Ph.D. studies in 1999 on "The Evaluation of Altitude Decompression Procedures and Development of New decompression Strategies. He is writing on a monthly Turkish underwater magazine and has articles on decompression computation published in several proceedings of EUBS (European Underwater and Baromedical Society) and UHMS (Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society). He is a regular participant of the annual EUBS meetings since 1992. He is a diving Instructor since 1986 and certified more than 2500 divers at different levels. He directed Istanbul University Department of Underwater Technology for three years (from 2000-2003). From 2003 till now, worked as Vice head of Department of Computer Engineering at Galatasaray University. He is an active member of the DAN Europe Research group and working as consultant of the US market leader dive computer manufacturer. His main research interests are mainly Rebreathers, Decompression Modelling, Underwater technology, Biomedical Engineering aspects of diving.
