PICS Colloquium: Adrian Lozano-Duran

October 29 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
PICS Large Conference Room, 3401 Walnut Street, 5A
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States
+ Google Map

On Friday, October 29 at 2:00 PICS is hosting a colloquium with Professor Adrián Lozano-Durán, Draper Assistant Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. Title: A model for external aerodynamics based on building-block flows Abstract: A wall model for large-eddy simulation is proposed by devising the flow as a collection of building blocks, whose information enables the prediction of the stress as the wall.  The core assumption of the model is that simple canonical flows (such as turbulent channel flows,…

Colloquium: Pratyush Tiwary

November 5 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Online

On Friday, November 5th at 2:00 PICS will host a colloquium featuring Pratyush Tiwary, Assistant Professor, University of Maryland. Title: From atoms to emergent mechanisms with information bottleneck and diffusion probabilistic models Abstract: The ability to rapidly learn from high-dimensional data to make reliable predictions about the future is crucial in many contexts. This could be a fly avoiding predators, or the retina processing terabytes of data guiding complex human actions. Modern day artificial intelligence (AI) aims to mimic this fidelity and…

Colloquium: Jeetain Mittal

November 12 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Online

On Friday, November 12 at 2:00pm PICS is hosting a colloquium with Jeetain Mittal, Professor of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University. Title: Molecular organization in biology: What can computer simulations teach us? Abstract: The formation of membraneless organelles (MLOs) via phase separation of proteins and nucleic acids has emerged as an essential process with which cells can maintain spatiotemporal control. Despite enormous progress in understanding the role of MLOs in biological function in the last ten years or so,…
