The US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory took yet another step toward leading the AI revolution by hosting its third workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Robust Engineering and Science, or AIRES.
Robust engineering refers to the process of designing, building, and controlling systems to avoid or mitigate failures. The introductory AIRES workshop in January 2020 explored these foundations, and the follow-up workshop in January 2021 focused on the foundations of AI for constructing, deploying, and assuring the robustness of digital twins.
This year’s 3-day event was held on April 26–28 at ORNL in a virtual + in-person format and garnered 150 participants. Organizers built on the success of the first two workshops by exploring and developing the foundations of AI in knowledge-informed modeling and prediction, deployment considerations and related topics via three primary thrusts:
