  • CCI, AAI, and MHI Joint Seminar Series - Radoslav Ivanov (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute): Safe and secure autonomy within reach: a verified machine learning and control perspective

    Tue, Feb 13, 2024 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Radoslav Ivanov, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

    Talk Title: Safe and secure autonomy within reach: a verified machine learning and control perspective

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present an integrated approach to assuring the safety and security of cyber-physical systems (CPS) through a combination of offline verification and online monitoring techniques. For offline assurance, I have developed an approach, called Verisig, for verifying the safety of autonomous systems with neural network controllers. I will present an exhaustive evaluation on a neural-network-controlled (1/10-scale) autonomous racing car, in terms of modeling, verification and experiments on the real platform. In the second part of the talk, I will describe my work on run-time monitoring of system safety, with applications to medical CPS. Specifically, I will present a detector for critical drops in the patient's oxygen content during surgery, with guaranteed performance regardless of varying physiological parameters such as metabolism. The detector is evaluated on real-patient data collected from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

  • MFD Spring Seminars- Distinguished Lecture Series

    Tue, Feb 13, 2024 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University

    Talk Title: 2D Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes) -“ from Discovery to Applications

    Abstract: MXenes are a family of two-dimensional (2D) early transition metal carbides, nitrides, oxycarbides, carbonitrides, and related structures with a general formula of Mn+1XnTx, where M is a transition metal, X is carbon or nitrogen (oxygen substitution is possible), T represents the surface terminations (O, OH, halogen, chalcogen, etc.), and n = 1—4 [1]. More than 50 MXene compositions have already been reported, but the number of possible compositions is infinite if one considers solid solutions and combinations of surface terminations. MXenes open an era of computationally driven atomistic design of 2D materials. MXenes possess electronic, optical, mechanical, and electrochemical properties that differentiate them from other materials. Chemically tunable superconductivity has been demonstrated in Nb- and Mo-based MXenes. Chemically tunable ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism have been predicted. Highly nonlinear optical properties of MXenes are being explored. Several MXenes have been predicted to act as topological insulators. Many MXenes are metals but with a tunable density of states at the Fermi level, like semiconductors. Moreover, their properties are tunable by design and can be modulated using an ionotronic approach [2], leading to breakthroughs in the fields ranging from optoelectronics, electromagnetic interference shielding, and communication to energy storage, catalysis, sensing, and healthcare. In several applications, such as electromagnetic interference shielding, MXenes have already outperformed all other materials. In this talk, I’ll discuss the synthesis and structure of MXenes, their optoelectronic properties, and the coupling between electrochemical redox processes in MXenes and their optical properties, which can be monitored in situ using spectroelectrochemistry techniques [3].

    Biography: Yury Gogotsi is a Distinguished University Professor and Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Endowed Chair in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University (Philadelphia, USA). He is the founding Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute. He received his MS (1984) and PhD (1986) from Kyiv Polytechnic and a DSc degree from the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in 1995. Together with his students and colleagues, he made principal contributions to the development of materials for electrochemical capacitors and other energy storage devices, discovered MXenes, demonstrated the tuning of structure and porosity of carbide-derived carbons, and developed new processes for the synthesis, surface modification, and purification of nanotubes and nanodiamonds. He also published the first microscopic observation of water inside carbon nanotubes, discovered polygonal nanotubes (graphite polyhedral crystals), and shaped the field of high-pressure surface science. He is recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher in Materials Science and Chemistry and a Citations Laureate by Clarivate Analytics (Web of Science). He has received numerous awards for his research, including the Ceramic Prize from the World Academy of Ceramics, the Materials Research Society (MRS) Medal, the American Chemical Society (ACS) Award in the Chemistry of Materials, etc. He has been elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the World Academy of Ceramics, the European Academy of Sciences, and many professional societies. He holds honorary doctorates from several European Universities.
