Tage Erlander Guest Professorship 2014: Lecture and Award Ceremony

Open lecture by Professor John S. Baras,University of Maryland College Park, USA: "The Next Wonder: Using Models for “Making” Products and Services"

Information Technology advances have enabled creation of complex products and services, with many heterogeneous components and multiple functions capabilities. They have affected all aspects of life and work and have led us into the network era. The systematic design, manufacturing and operation of such complex products and services so as to meet performance specifications is a grand challenge for science and engineering.

In this inauguration lecture,John S. Baras will describe his research in the emerging discipline of Model-Based Systems Engineering that addresses this challenges faced in research and industry. The societal and economic impact of this approach is by some predicted to be greater than that of typography, microelectronic chips, the PC, the Internet. The discussion will concern some of the many applications of Model-Based Systems Engineering, from power grids to health care.

The lecture will also be broadcasted live, please follow the link: http://www.livestream.com/kthlivelänk till annan webbplats
