ESReDA Webinar: Prognostics and Health Management for Condition-based and Predictive Maintenance: A Look In and a Look Out

ESReDA invites you to the 5th Webinar on Trustworthy Complex and Intelligent Systems by Enrico Zio (CRC MINES ParisTech, France; Politecnico di Milano, Italy)

Prognostics and Health Management for Condition-based and Predictive Maintenance: A Look In and a Look Out
Tuesday, 8 June 2021
16:00 – 17:00 CET
Free Online Zoom Webinar

Zoom Registration: https://lnkd.in/eNsbfTM

A number of methods of Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) have been developed (and more are being developed) for use in diverse engineering applications. Yet, there are still a number of critical problems which impede full deployment of PHM and its benefits in practice. In this lecture, we look in some of these PHM challenges and look out to advancements for PHM deployment.

Enrico Zio is full professor at the Centre for research on Risk and Crises (CRC) of Ecole de Mines, ParisTech, PSL University, France, full professor and President of the Alumni Association at Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

His research focuses on the modeling of the failure-repair-maintenance behavior of components and complex systems, for the analysis of their reliability, maintainability, prognostics, safety, vulnerability, resilience and security characteristics, and on the development and use of Monte Carlo simulation methods, artificial intelligence techniques and optimization heuristics.

In 2020, Professor Zio has been awarded the prestigious Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany.

 

European Research and Innovation Days

European Research and Innovation Days

Let’s shape the future together

https://ec.europa.eu/research-and-innovation/en/events/upcoming-events/research-innovation-days

European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.

The event will take place online on 23 and 24 June 2021, allowing everyone to get involved from anywhere.

This year marks the start of Horizon Europe, our most ambitious EU research and innovation programme ever and will be a decisive moment to strengthen our European Research Area. Cooperation in research and innovation is essential in our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and will pave the way to a greener and more digital future. The European Research and Innovation Days represent a unique opportunity to add your voice to the conversation.

The event is all about collaboration: bringing together individuals and experts from all areas to build.

 

Join live sessions with interesting speakers talking about the future of European research and innovation, and Horizon Europe, the new European research and innovation funding programme.

Create your own programme choosing from all the live sessions available, ranging from high-level plenaries to immersive panel discussions on topics such as the post-COVID-19 recovery, the European Research Area, digitalisation, our green future and more.

EU Green Week 2021

Tarša veikia visus per orą, kuriuo kvėpuojame, vandenį, kurį geriame, ar žemę, kurioje auginame maistą. Tai yra pagrindinis aplinkos veiksnys, sukeliantis daug psichinių bei fizinių ligų ir priešlaikinių mirčių, visų pirma vaikų, žmonių, turinčių tam tikrų sveikatos sutrikimų, ir vyresnio amžiaus asmenų. Tačiau tarša nevienodai veikia visus. Žmonės, gyvenantys skurdesnėse vietovėse, dažnai gyvena netoli užterštų vietų arba vietose, kuriose labai intensyvus eismas. Tarša taip pat yra viena iš pagrindinių biologinės įvairovės nykimo priežasčių. Ji mažina ekosistemų gebėjimą teikti tokias paslaugas kaip anglies sekvestracija ir nukenksminimas.

Bet jos galima išvengti. ES nulinės taršos veiksmų planas yra svarbus Europos žaliojo kurso dokumentas, kurį numatyta priimti 2021 m. pavasarį. Jis padės sukurti aplinką, kurioje nėra toksinių medžiagų, užtikrinant geresnę stebėseną ir ataskaitų teikimą, taip pat užkertant kelią oro, vandens, dirvožemio bei vartojimo produktų taršai ir ją šalinant.
Taip pat bus remiamas atsigavimas po COVID-19: atkuriama tvaresnė ES ekonomika, sudaromos galimybės įsidarbinti ir mažinama socialinė nelygybė. 2021 m. Europos žalioji savaitė bus skirta nulinės taršos tikslui. Taip pat bus nagrinėjamos kitos susijusios Europos žaliojo kurso iniciatyvos, pavyzdžiui, klimato iniciatyvos, būsima cheminių medžiagų strategija, taip pat iniciatyvos energetikos, pramonės, judumo, žemės ūkio, žuvininkystės, sveikatos ir biologinės įvairovės srityse.

2021 m. ES žalioji savaitė suteiks galimybę su visais suinteresuotaisiais subjektais ir suinteresuotais piliečiais aptarti, kaip galime kartu pasiekti nulinės taršos ir aplinkos be toksinių medžiagų tikslą.

In this talk I will discuss some of the latest progress we have made in the space of certifying AI systems, ranging from certification of deep neural networks to entire deep learning pipelines. In the process I will also discuss new neural architectures that are more amenable to certification as well as mathematical impossibility and complexity results that help guide new kinds of certified training methods.

 

Martin Vechev is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich. His work spans the intersection of machine learning and symbolic methods with applications to topics such as safety of artificial intelligence, quantum programming and security. He has co-founded 3 start-ups in the space of AI and security, the latest of which LatticeFlow aims to build and deploy trustworthy AI models.
