“Grand challenges in complex systems: Applications in robotic swarms and autonomous vehicles”
Mon May 13 at 5:30 pm IST (8:00 am US EDT)
Among the current efforts to improve structural safety and reliability, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) plays a very important roll, in which real-time data are acquired and analyzed for the ultimate goal of status awareness, condition-based maintenance and retrofit, operational risk minimization, and human life safety. Yet any such condition assessment is inevitably constrained by the observability of the sensing hardware and corrupted by various kinds of uncertainties, which degrades the SHM decision-making capability dramatically, leading to unidentifiable system dynamics, as well as both false damage alarms and missed detections or classifications. In this presentation, the research activities at UMass Lowell related to non-contact full-field system testing and identification will be introduced.

IUCEE Virtual Academy: “Knowledge Representation Reasoning for Artificial Intelligence (AI)”
May 15, 2019 10:30 AM IST
The goals of this webinar is to provide an overview of the topic “Knowledge Representation and Reasoning for Artificial Intelligence” where the main goal is to understand various formal techniques available for representing factual knowledge that is typically easily expressed in natural language. Audience should gain an appreciation for knowledge representation in commonsense reasoning. Topics covered will include Role of logic in AI, representation of knowledge in Propositional & First order logic, natural deduction, resolution, Non-monotonic reasoning, Constraint programming, Inductive and Coinductive programming, Inheritance relations, Planning, Bayes nets and Markov logic, probabilistic models for reasoning and decision making, Explainable AI, etc.
