Intelligent Design and Engineering of Aerospace Systems (IDEAS) Workshop

August 15-16, 2019
Registration: Free – REGISTER HERE (External Website)
Lunch: Out of Pocket (Options will be provided and delivered on-site)

The Ohio Aerospace Institute, Cleveland, OH, 44135

NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio is hosting the IDEAS workshop on August 15th and 16th, 2019 at the Ohio Aerospace Institute, . The workshop includes a series of presentations, panels, round table discussions, and networking opportunities.
The vision of IDEAS is an AI design system for propulsion. NASA is eager to understand the state of the art in AI tools used in propulsion, to evaluate the quality of available data as well as to define the top challenges related to data generation, management and analysis. Moreover, we would like to identify the fundamental challenges in developing algorithms and models relevant to the propulsion field and to identify challenge problems that the community may use as a benchmark to develop and validate tools against.
We invite you to submit a title for presentation or a panel at the workshop. Please inform us if you would like to attend the workshop without submitting a presentation or participating on a panel. Presentations should focus on AI tools or best practices for addressing common issues. Panel sessions should focus on industry needs for AI tools and methods. The deadline for submitting the titles is July 21st, 2019. Participants will receive the final schedule by July 28th 2019. We value your participation in this workshop and in moving the community closer to our AI future.

Please send all communication to the IDEAS organizing team.

First participant telecon held on Wednesday, June 12 to obtain input from participants:

NASA GRC perspective presented.
Telecon participants provided the following input based on their organization’s perspective:

1. Activities undertaken OR Data sets available: Product/component test data, engine test data on-wing, multiscale ML tool development

2. Presentations and panels: Most participants are willing to present. Please obtain clearance from your organizations to ensure that presentations for open sessions are not ITAR/export controlled. We will have one government only session restricted to civil servants only.

3. Objectives for participants from industry, academia, government: How to use and dissect data? How to integrate data and collaborate with other entities? To meet people and collaborate. Get other perspectives on ML in energy and propulsion. Understand what industry is doing in ML, big data? What data is available for 3D, how to expand academic tools to make them relevant, To enable tool transfer

4. Discussion topics for workshop: Tutorials – wiki, multi-scale ML, Learn from service modelling community, Data management and infrastructure including sharing, file structures, languages, In the near term we will focus on data sharing and worry about data classification in the long term.

6. Recurring telecons every week until week before workshop.
