I had the honor to be a Keynote speaker at the 2019 GE Edge and Controls Symposium, September 10-12, 2019. This meeting brought together many top engineers and business leaders from within GE, and also from other companies, national labs, universities, and government. My talk was entitled “Leveraging Machine Learning for Advancing Smart-X Systems and Control“. My key theme was how we can think about the tremendous advances in machine learning and connect them to tools, techniques, design principles, and knowledge-base from systems and control field. It was very well received and there were many thought provoking questions. I also had a chance to reconnect with some friends and collaborators! Slides can be downloaded by clicking on the link above.
