CALCE Director, Prof. Michael Pecht gave a special talk on “Research and Innovation Trends in Artificial Intelligence” at the University of Houston, Texas, and  on November 6, 2019 and at  Dell Technologies, Texas on Nov 8 ,2019. Research on artificial intelligence (AI) has been on the rise as companies and governments have identified AI as a core technology, enabling innovation and profits across a diverse range of applications. Given this, there are many questions that can be asked, including: which countries produce the most amount of AI research, is there one country that stands out from other countries, and what application areas are influenced the most by AI? This talk presented a study of AI research based on both conference and journal publications published on IEEE Xplore and indexed by Web of Science, and patented in the USPTO over the past ten years. Trends in research and applications were presented.

Prof. Michael Pecht is the George E. Dieter Chair Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Professor of Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation at the University of Maryland. He is also the founder and director of CALCE (Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering). He is a Professional Engineer, an IEEE Fellow, an ASME Fellow, an SAE Fellow, and an IMAPS Fellow. He is currently serving as editor-in-chief of Circuit World.
