About the Technology
Each year we try to showcase the emerging technologies that drive our program. These offer new insights, methods of observation and a direction for development.
Solar Powered Aerial Vehicles
Using only sunlight to create lift force, these aerial vehicles can levitate without any moving parts, even at altitudes where the air is too thin for airplanes and balloons.
Physics-Informed Neural Networks
Blending physics and AI, these neural networks open the path to learning functional relationships between the excitation and the response of a system, even when those cannot be directly measured.
About The Labs
Predictive Intelligence Lab
The Predictive Intelligence Lab is the research team of Professor Paris Perdikaris at the department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Bargatin Lab
The Bargatin group pushes the limits of nanofabrication techniques to create materials and structures with unprecedented mechanical properties.
