Data-Centric Engineering Webinar Series

Data-Centric Engineering Webinar Series

A programme of virtual events about data-centric engineering will begin on 7 April, running monthly until October, with talks from experts in the field and those applying data-driven approaches in industry and other settings. The series includes networking events for early career researchers and those new to the field.

The Data-Centric Engineering (DCE) Webinar Series discusses the use of data science methods and models for improving the reliability, resilience, safety, efficiency and usability of engineered systems. 

The Series, which will be delivered via Zoom, is hosted by the Data-Centric Engineering journal at Cambridge University Press – a peer-reviewed open access journal dedicated to the interface of data science and all engineering disciplines – with the support of The Alan Turing Institute and the Lloyd's Register Foundation.

Details of the first webinar in the series are as follows:

Title: Approximating functions, functionals, and operators using deep neural networks for diverse applications 

Speaker: George Em Karniadakis, The Charles Pitts Robinson and John Palmer Barstow Professor of Applied Mathematics and Engineering, Brown University, USA

Delivered on: 7 April at 4pm (16:00) BST. 

Register in advance to attend the session.
