TRIPODS/DATA-INSPIRE Workshop on Dynamics, Topology, and Robotic Control

May 13, 2021 - May 14, 2021


Online Event


Konstantin Mischaikow, Rutgers University

DATA-INSPIRE, an NSF TRIPODS Institute housed in DIMACS, is premised on the belief that advances in data science principles are needed to impact the emerging paradigm of intelligent machines and their convergence with human society. Part of this effort requires the development of theory and algorithms that can provide mathematically sound constraints to specific robotic systems in the context of noisy unpredictable environments.  The workshop Dynamics, Topology, and Robotic Control will explore the use of topological concepts and techniques to identify robust dynamic features of these systems.
