Computational Design for Manufacturing - Dates: Jul 16, 2018 - Jul 18, 2018

Computational Design for Manufacturing - Dates: Jul 16, 2018 - Jul 18, 2018

Over the next few decades, we are going to transition to a new economy where highly complex, customizable products are manufactured on demand by flexible robotic systems. This change is already underway in a number of fields. 3D printers are revolutionizing production of metal parts in aerospace, automotive, and medical industries. Manufacturing electronics on flexible substrates opens the door to a whole new range of products for consumer electronics and medical diagnostics. Overall, these new machines enable batch-one manufacturing of products that have unprecedented complexity.

This course gives an introduction to the new field of computational design that is essential for the next revolution in manufacturing. Participants will be given an overview of the advanced manufacturing hardware, methods for creating digital materials, and computational design of objects at voxel-level. The course will cover generative design workflows that automatically translate functional specifications of objects to manufacturable designs. The course will also introduce participants to AI methods for computational design that utilize expert knowledge and large data repositories. Finally, the course will showcase new workflows for design across multiple domains (e.g., shape, materials, control, and software) that simplify the process and fully utilize the design space.


Machine Learning for Healthcare - Dates: Jul 16, 2018 - Jul 17, 2018

Machine Learning for Healthcare - Dates: Jul 16, 2018 - Jul 17, 2018

With massive amounts of data flowing from EMRs, wearables, and countless other new sources, the potential for machine learning and AI to transform healthcare is perhaps more drastic and profound than any other industry. However, there are unique obstacles that exist in healthcare that can make it difficult to apply machine learning. Oftentimes, data are missing, inaccurate or stored in silos. Connecting patient records across providers and insurers is a challenge due to the lack of interoperability and reliable patient identification methods. And in some cases, such as when dealing with patients with rare conditions, data is insufficient or incomplete.

In this course, you'll gain practical knowledge that will enable you to overcome these hurdles and apply the latest advances in healthcare AI tools and techniques to:

Connect health data from disparate sources (e.g. EHRs, mobile, wearables)
Identify patterns and determine the most effective treatments
Predict and improve patient and financial outcomes
Model disease progression
Enable personalized care and precision medicine
