Reasoning in the Design of Cyber-Physical Systems

Kemper Lewis
Professor and Chair, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University at Buffalo - SUNY

Cyber-physical systems and the emerging data analytics supporting their operation are revolutionizing many facets of our lives including business, transportation, finance, defense, energy, and manufacturing. Necessary to the success of these complex systems is interdisciplinary design knowledge that integrates quantitative and qualitative methods. In this seminar, the concept of inference in cyber-physical systems is discussed using methods rooted in the developing science of design. Recent research in cyber-empathic design using embedded product sensors, coordination of autonomous rescue drones, and geometric reasoning in additive manufacturing is presented.
