    Speaker: Dr. Conrad S. Tucker, Carnegie Mellon University

    Talk Title: Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on Engineering Design and Manufacturing

    Abstract:
    Our research employs artificial intelligence techniques that seek to automate the main time/cost drivers of the engineering design and manufacturing process. The features of a product inform the form, function and behavior of the resulting design concept that can be subsequently created using traditional manufacturing/additive manufacturing methods. While there exists a wide range of computer aided design tools that seek to generate 3D design concepts, they are primarily parametric in nature and rely extensively on designers expertise, which may not always be readily available. Grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have enabled our research team to explore the use of Deep Generative Design methods such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to generate 3D representations of design concepts. However, there is more to a design than simply its 3D form, as the design must perform a function and operate in an environment where its behavior may/may not perform as intended. Towards this end, our research group has proposed liking the AI-generation of a design, with the automatic evaluation of its function and behavior using physics-based simulation engines. The end result is a physics-informed design that has the potential to be realized through techniques such as additive manufacturing.

    Biography: Dr. Conrad Tucker is an Arthur Hamerschlag Career Development Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Machine Learning (Courtesy) at Carnegie Mellon University. His research focuses on the design and optimization of systems through the acquisition, integration and mining of large scale, disparate data. Dr. Tucker has served as PI/Co-PI on federally/non-federally funded grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), the Office of Naval Research (ONR) via the NSF Center for eDesign, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). In February 2016, he was invited by National Academy of Engineering (NAE) President Dr. Dan Mote, to serve as a member of the Advisory Committee for the NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) Symposium. He received his Ph.D., M.S. (Industrial Engineering), and MBA degrees from the University of Illinois at
    Urbana-Champaign, and his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

  • Wellness and Productivity in a Return to Physical Work Spaces

    Fri, Oct 15, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni

    Receptions & Special Events


    Dive deep into the leadership, evolution and impact of a new build environment.

    After adapting to a virtual work environment over the last 18+ months, employees and organizations alike are arriving at the new reality of what the current physical work space will look like. Maintaining employee mental and physical wellness while maximizing productivity are challenges organizational leadership will face as they react to what has been coined "The Great Resignation".

    The third and final installment of our Marshall Alumni Wellness series is co-presented by the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Our esteemed panel will discuss topics including:
    - The evolution of the build environment and where do we go in the modern/post COVID era.
    - Collaboration, cognitive performance and productivity through the evolution of physical work spaces.
    - Human and built environment interaction and the impact of AI and technology in those environments.
    - Getting around a one size fits all approach and adjusting among different industry standards.
    - Transformational leadership in the creation of an optimal work environment.

    Our presenters:
    - Burcin Becerik-Gerber Ph.D
    - Matthew Weeks MBA
    - Gary Wheeler

    Admission is FREE

    Event conducted over Zoom. Space is limited and advance registration is required.

  • Repeating EventDensity Functional Theory Methods Using Quantum Espresso [series] Posted By: Center for Advanced Research Computing

    Fri, Oct 15, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This weekly workshop series will benefit researchers who are interested in or are starting to learn about the application of theoretical methods and techniques for the study of the physics and chemistry of the solid state. These hands-on oriented workshops are targeted towards undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students who wish to use Density Functional Theory (DFT) methods in their research. The aim is to teach the basics of ab initio atomistic materials simulation using the Quantum Espresso suite of codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale. Fridays from 4-6 PM PST. Register here!
