Dear member of the IEEE Board of Directors,
I respectfully bring to your attention to facts and actions from IEEE members and organizers of IEEE conferences that during the past 15 years crushed innovations that would have greatly contributed to the advancement in science and benefit humanity and request a PUBLIC scientific review similar to the FERMILAB review held on 12/14/1993. (pp. 56)
Breakthrough invention – 3D-Flow OPRA (Object Pattern real-time Recognition Algorithms): a revolutionary electronic instrument for multiple applications: advancing science, saving lives, fighting terrorism, …, capable of executing programmable pattern recognition algorithms in real time of multidimensional objects by analyzing ALL data arriving at ultra-high speed from a matrix of thousands of transducers at over 20TB/sec.
See three abstracts/summaries submitted to the 2016 IEEE-NSS-MIC-RTSD and the Appendix with references to the details of my invention supported by 59 quotes from reputable companies proving that all the components of my invention can be built.
My basic 3D-Flow invention was recognized valuable by academia, industry and research laboratories (including a representative from CERN) at a major, open, PUBLIC scientific review held on December 14, 1993 at FERMI National Laboratory (see pp. 56-74). The review panel and several scientists recognized that my invention was the only detailed study allowing the execution of 3×3 Level-1 Trigger algorithm for CMS, the 4×4 Level-1 Trigger algorithm for Atlas experiment at CERN and for any future experiments. It was acclaimed and endorsed (see pp. 51-55 & 75-83) valuable by several top experts in the field to create a fully programmable Level-1 Trigger with zero dead-time, a powerful tool for experimenters to discover new particles. Furthermore, it received awards and passed subsequent scientific reviews (pp. 84-101), was proven feasible and functional in hardware (pp. 142-144), and proven scientifically advantageous and beneficial in many applications (pp. 1-2 & 24-29) ― but funding went to less efficient and more costly approaches.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) missed several opportunities (see pp. 104-141) to save millions of dollars and create a more powerful tool for discovering new particles at a fraction of the cost and benefit many other applications such as saving millions of lives with early cancer detection because an analytical and scientific discussion of my inventions was denied by reviewers of articles and funding agencies.
In 1994, with $150,000 provided by DOE during the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) closeout, I proved feasible the construction of a very powerful Programmable Level-1 Trigger in a cylinder of electronics 1.8m tall and 1m in diameter for Collider’s detectors at 25 ns bunch crossing capable of executing complex real-time algorithms with zero dead-time. I built the entire cylindrical structure with 10 mini-racks, made of 80 mini-crates, building prototypes of small DAQ electronic boards, 3D-Flow mother boards, 3D-Flow daughter boards and the flexible printed circuits for fast data exchange between neighboring processors in different daughter boards. (See pp. 105-109). Leaders in the field recognized the superiority of my invention asking me to document my work so it could be continued and funded for future projects. However, when other detectors were approved, more expensive and less performant Level-1 Triggers were funded and the 3D-Flow went unfunded.
In 1995 with $906,000 funding provided by a DOE SBIR grant, I hired four people and developed all 3D-Flow software tools (simulator, editor, assembler, test vectors generators and result comparison, etc.), and targeted the technology-independent 3D-Flow processors to three different FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array) and one Standard Cell 350 nanometer technology. However, funding was not provided to build the four 3D-Flow processors in hardware.
In 1999, I provided the results of the work using the $906,000 DOE grant in a 45-page peer-review article published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research. I detailed the construction of the analog acquisition/conversion into digital and the execution of a programmable Level-1 Trigger for 8,192 electronic channels suitable for CMS and Atlas experiments at CERN in eight VXI crates capable of executing complex real-time algorithms more efficient than any trigger system under design or construction and capable of sustaining 0.65TB/sec data rate with zero dead-time.
In 2001, using my own money, I proved my invention for the first time in hardware using two large FPGAs from Altera and presented it at the Industrial Exhibition at the IEEE-NSS-MIC Conference in San Diego, California.
In 2003, again with my own money, I designed, constructed, and tested in hardware two modular particle detection boards, each with 68 x 3D-Flow processors capable of extracting all information from radiation for High Energy Physics and for Medical Imaging applications. I presented my work at the IEEE-MIC Conference in 2003 in Portland, Oregon.
Beginning in 1998, I have been prevented from presenting my innovations at the Workshop on Electronics for LHC Experiments at Snowmass (CO) and beginning 2001 at all IEEE-NSS-MIC conferences except in 2003 (see article ) and 2013 (see article and poster) when Ralph James was Chairman. The microphone was taken away from me while I was asking a legitimate, scientific question to the keynote speakers at the IEEE-NSS-MIC conferences. Since the year 2000, the scientific community of the major IEEE conferences in the field have rejected all the papers I submitted where I have explained the importance of extracting ALL valuable information from radiation at the lowest cost per valid event captured. They have also refused a public dialogue where young scientists, PhD students and senior scientists could present their ideas and question each other publicly in two workshops that I proposed at the same IEEE-NSS-MIC conference in 2014, and continued to reject my papers in 2015 with reviewers giving non-scientific reasons: «The abstract and summary appear to be a rehashing of work done 23 years ago. Can’t tell if there is anything new or interesting. I am unaware of any experiment that has used the 3D-Flow-OPRT technology since then», or this other non-scientific reason «This is one of those topics “that won’t go away”. I would like to hear a discussion about this to “once and for all” settle the question raised – is this approach any good? … I think it would be up to the moderators of the session whether they want to take this topic on, or just tell him (once more) to go away». (see pp. 245-252).
I have attempted to address this issue via email and at the IEEE-NSS-MIC-RTSD conferences for 15 years with leaders in the field such as Patrick LeDu, and others; however, I did not received answers to my emails and they would not set up a meeting.
In 2015, my inventions continue to improve performance in breaking the speed barrier in real-time applications. The new 2015 design of my 3D-Flow OPRA supported by 59 quotes from reputable companies prove that all the components of my invention can build a Level-1 Trigger system with 8,192 electronic channels with approximately 50,000 x 3D-Flow processors in one crate of 36 cm cube of electronics costing approximately $100,000 per unit solving the problems of CMS, Atlas Level-1 Trigger, and those of future experiments, with the capability to execute with zero dead-time complex programmable Object Pattern Recognition Algorithms on data arriving at 1.3TB/sec.
This 3D-Flow OPRA system can replace the CMS 4,000 electronic data processing boards Level-1 Trigger (and the new 100 SWATCH boards installed at CERN-CMS experiment on February 26, 2016. See two slides and the related documents) with 9 electronic 3D-Flow OPRA data processing boards in one crate (see two slides and pp. 3-4) at 1/1000 the cost of the CMS 4,000 electronic boards with a staggering performance improvement compared to both alternative approaches.
(Using more advanced nanometer technology than the one provide in the quotes achieving 1.3TB/sec data rate, my 3D-Flow OPRA architecture could surpass this performance in recognizing objects from data arriving at over 20TByte/sec in the same 36 cm cube of electronics).
Because my inventions could have provided many benefits in High Energy Physics applications and in several other applications such as significantly reducing cancer deaths and cost with an effective 3D-CBS (3-D Complete Body Screening) which makes use of the 3D-Flow OPRA technology, I respectfully request the names of those members of the over 400,000 IEEE scientific community who are professionals competent in electronics, parallel-processing, Level-1 Trigger, ultra-high speed data acquisition and processing, particle detection, biomedical engineering, medical imaging, cancer deaths and cost reduction, who will take the responsibility to PUBLICLY compare my new 3D-Flow OPRA invention, using calculations and scientific evidence, to any other existing invention/approach that they might know, asking questions and giving me a chance to answer and explain as was done for my basic 3D-Flow invention at the open, PUBLIC scientific review held at Fermi National Laboratory on December 14, 1993.
As a reference for the new work to be discussed during this PUBLIC review of my inventions similar to the major review held at FEMILAB on December 14, 1993, I provide the abstracts and summaries of the three papers submitted to the forthcoming IEEE-NSS-MIC-RTSD conference on October 29, Nov. 6, 2016, in Strasburg, France.
The attached appendix provides more detailed information on how my inventions were crushed for many years, and how less efficient and more costly approaches were approved for publication and received funding for their implementation by a circle of friends splitting taxpayer money in closed door meetings.
I am looking forward to your positive response,
