Scientific Computing and Matrix Computations Seminar: Nonlinear reduced-order modeling: Using machine learning to enable extreme-scale simulation for many-query problems

Seminar: Scientific Computing: CS | April 17 | 2-3 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Kevin Carlberg, Sandia Lab

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Physics-based modeling and simulation has become indispensable across many applications in engineering and science, ranging from aircraft design to monitoring national critical infrastructure. However, as simulation is playing an increasingly important role in scientific discovery, decision making, and design, greater demands are being placed on model fidelity. This high fidelity necessitates...   More >

EECS Colloquium: Building Dynamic Robots

Colloquium: Departmental: EE: CS | April 17 | 4-5 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium | Note change in location

 Marc Raibert, Founder and CEO, Boston Dynamics

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Dynamics opens a world of opportunity for robotics. Robots that move dynamically can go where other robots can't go, handle larger payloads with smaller footprint and smaller robot mass, and move faster to get work done more quickly. This talk will give a status report on Boston Dynamics' work in this area, both its long-term effort to develop robots of the future and shorter-term efforts to...   More >
