MechSE research associate professor Seid Koric, along with NCSA industry director Brendan McGinty, delivered the keynote presentation at the Industrial Day at the 2019 International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany.

“It was all about the synergies of science and engineering with artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) in industry—needless to say a ‘hot’ research engineering topic,” said Koric, who is also the technical assistant director of NCSA.

“The rise of the fourth paradigm of science, which is data-driven discovery, has been lately enabled by our ability to collect and analyze ‘big data’ on HPC,” according to the presentation description. The presentation also covered “examples of some recent advances in this field in terms of development and application of big data analytics and Artificial Intelligence in the various domains of industrial interest such as geospatial information systems (GIS), AI driven multiscale models in materials science and the convergence of CFD and AI in turbulence modeling.”
