Artificial Intelligence for Robust Engineering & Science

Advances in digital twin and digital thread technologies are expected to enable robust engineering practices in a wide variety of scientific and industrial applications, providing the capability to manage the lifecycle of complex systems. Over the past decade, data availability, advances in computing, and streamlined data-driven methods and tools widened the opportunities for transferring digital twin technology at the edge to enable real-time system operation. The introductory Artificial Intelligence for Robust Engineering and Science (AIRES) workshop in January 2020 explored the foundations of AI for robust engineering while subsequent workshops in this series expanded on this theme. The next workshop in this series, AIRES 4, will build on the successes of previous workshops, and explore and develop the foundations of AI in digital engineering, with a focus on assured digital twins, lifecycle management of digital twins, and data management. Other related topics are also expected to be discussed.

AIRES 4 will comprise three broad technical tracks

Assured Digital Twins: This track focuses on the technical challenges associated with developing and using robust digital models

Digital Twin Lifecycle Management: This track focuses on the ecosystem and methods necessary for practical use of digital twins

Data Management: This track focuses on all aspects of data relevant to digital twin technology, including sensors and data management

In addition topics associated with detecting and dealing with bias, and diversity, equity, and inclusion associated with the development and use of AI solutions for digital twins are of interest.

The workshop will comprise multiple sessions dedicated to each track, with additional breakout sessions for small-group interactions and brainstorming activities. A workshop report will be produced with input from attendees based on participation in breakout and brainstorming sessions.

The workshop will include

AIRES 4 is planned as an in-person meeting and will be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Please visit (insert link to “How to participate” page here) for more information on how you can participate and to propose technical talks, flash talks, or posters. Participants who wish to lead a breakout session may also propose a topic during this process. The program committee will select from the proposed talks for presentation during the workshop.
