Infosymbiotics: The Power of Dynamic Data Driven Applications Systems (DDDAS)
Speaker: Dr. Frederica Darema, Air Force Office of Scientific Research
InfoSymbiotics embodies the power of Dynamic Data Driven Applications Systems (DDDAS), a concept whereby application simulation modeling is dynamically integrated in a feed-back loop with the real-time data-acquisition and control components of the application system. Advanced capabilities can be created through such new computational approaches in modeling and simulations, and in instrumentation methods, and include: enhancing the accuracy of the application model; speeding-up the computation to allow more comprehensive models of a system, or create decision support systems with the accuracy of full-scale simulations. This talk will address opportunities for new capabilities and corresponding research challenges, and will present illustrative examples from several application areas where InfoSymbiotics/DDDAS promises transformative impact.
Dr. Frederica Darema is with the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, where she is managing the DDDAS Program, and also served as the Director of the Mathematics, Information and Life Sciences Directorate. Prior to that, she held executive level positions at NSF, as Senior Science and Technology Advisor, and Senior Science Analyst, in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate at NSF. Dr. Darema received her BS degree from the School of Physics and Mathematics, University of Athens, Greece, and MS and Ph.D. degrees in Theoretical Nuclear Physics from the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of California at Davis, respectively, where she attended as a Fulbright Scholar and a Distinguished Scholar. She is an IEEE Fellow and recipient of the IEEE CS Technical Achievement Award.
