The release of Open AI’s chatbot ChatGPT in November 2022 was a watershed moment in the AI revolution, raising new possibilities with its natural language processing. One early example is the way NVIDIA incorporated ChatGPT into NVIDIA Omniverse’s UI, allowing the use of natural language prompts for scene building. This may be a harbinger to radically different UIs for design and simulation applications.
In this premiere roundtable discussion from Revolution in Simulation, Digital Engineering 24/7, and CIMdata, we explore, with our panel of experts from industry and end-user companies, three specific areas where we believe AI and Machine Learning are expected to usher in radical changes:
Experts from Microsoft, Altair, and Neural Concept will illustrate their ideas with practical, real-world examples of the use of AI and Machine Learning to improve the simulation process while also highlighting the potential pitfalls of this approach – as with most human endeavors, there’s no free lunch!
In this short video, Digital Engineering 24/7 Senior Editor, Kenneth Wong and CIMdata’s Sandeepak Natu discuss the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the simulation industry.
In this video, Altair Vice President Engineering Data Science, Fatma Koçer-Poyraz shares her perspective on AI in simulation with Revolution in Simulation Co-Founder, Malcolm Panthaki.
Neural Concept Director of Operations, Thomas von Tschammer and Łukasz Miroslaw, Senior HPC/AI Specialist, Microsoft join CIMdata’s Sandeepak Natu to share their thoughts on AI in simulation. Watch it here.
Kenneth Wong is DE 24/7’s senior editor. He has been
covering the design and simulation software market for more than a decade. He
regularly writes feature articles on democratizing simulation, the impact of machine
learning, design for additive manufacturing (DfAM), the use of high performance
computing (HPC) in engineering, and more. He is also the host of DE 24/7’s
Fatma Koçer-Poyraz has received a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey and MSc and PhD degrees from the University of Iowa in Structural Optimization. After graduation, she joined Visteon to develop processes for design optimization of structural and electromagnetic parts. In 2006, she started in Altair as Product Line Manager for Altair HyperWorks design exploration and optimization products. Currently she works as the Vice President for Engineering Data Science. In this role, she and her team work on engineering data science strategy, development and execution which includes investigating and applying latest technologies in the field, providing feedback to Altair software and supporting customer projects. Fatma Kocer-Poyraz is one of the recipients of Crain’s 2019 Notable Women in STEM recognition.
Thomas graduated from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering, and a specialization in Neuroprosthetics. Then he worked as a researcher in the Computer Vision Laboratory of EPFL from which Neural Concept is also a spin-off. He then joined Neural Concept in the very early days of the company, more than four years ago. Thomas is now Director of Operations in the company, leading the Application Engineering team, and working closely with large companies to deploy AI-based workflow in their engineering design processes.
Dr. Łukasz Mirosław has 18+ years of experience in HPC. After his Ph.D. at Max Planck Institute of Cell Biology and Wroclaw University of Technology, he held research positions at Swiss, German and Polish research institutions in multiscale modelling. Founder and co-founder of four startups and grant holder from Max Planck Society, Herbert Quandt Foundation, Saxony Ministry and Polish-Swiss Research Programme. Currently, he is a member of the Global Black Belt team at Microsoft Azure working for the most advanced HPC & AI projects with enterprise customers from automotive, manufacturing and pharma industry.
Dr. Gerardo Olivares, currently serving as Director and Senior Research Scientist for the Virtual Engineering and Crash Dynamics laboratories at the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR), began his journey there in 2005. He has successfully built a globally recognized research program, excelling in areas like virtual product development, computational and experimental crashworthiness, impact dynamics, certification by analysis methods, Digital Engineering, and Digital Twin methods. He has led over 400 research projects for Industry and Federal Agencies. Beyond his research, Dr. Olivares has sponsored over 350 students, encompassing graduates, undergraduates, and research scholars. His seventeen-year tenure has seen him successfully oversee complex international engineering programs in the aerospace and automotive sectors, demonstrating an uncanny ability to foresee industry needs and develop necessary solutions, highlighting his analytical, experimental, and leadership strengths.
