SEMINAR: Towards Hybrid Intelligence for Systems Design
January 31 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Engineers have access to unprecedented information regarding the systems they create, analyze, and develop. This information is available from a number of emerging sources including digital twin simulations, embedded sensors, and consumer feedback platforms. In this talk, I discuss our recent efforts in converting information about the operation, use, and perception of systems into design intelligence to enable improved reasoning in the development of engineered solutions. The design of smart products, rescue drone swarms, and additive manufacturing recommender systems provide motivation for the developed methods and exemplars to illustrate their application.
