Seminar: A software framework for intelligent computer-automated product design

SoftICE member Robin T. Bye will today present recent research on intelligent computer-automated product design. The talk is called A software framework for intelligent computer-automated product design and is a based on a recent paper that will be presented at the 30th European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS 2016) in Regensburg, Germany, in June. The paper has been co-authored with SoftICE members Ottar L. Osen, Birger Skogeng Pedersen, Ibrahim A. Hameed, and Hans Georg Schaathun.

The seminar is open for all and will take place in room Åse at 13.00 today 29 April 2016, NTNU in Ålesund main building.

This work is part of the research project Artificial Intelligence for Crane Design (Kunstig intelligens for krandesign (KIK)) funded by RFF/Research Council of Norway.

Seminar: A Computer-automated Design Tool for Intelligent Virtual Prototyping of Offshore Cranes

SoftICE member Robin T. Bye will today present recent research on virtual prototyping of offshore cranes. The talk is called A Computer-automated Design Tool for Intelligent Virtual Prototyping of Offshore Cranes and is a based on a recent paper that will be presented at the 29th European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS 2015) in Varna, Bulgary, late May.

The seminar is open for all and will take place in room Borgundfjorden at 12.30 today 6 May 2015, AAUC main building.

This work is part of the research project Artificial Intelligence for Crane Design (Kunstig intelligens for krandesign (KIK)) funded by RFF/Research Council of Norway.

Paper on intelligent virtual prototyping of offshore cranes accepted for ECMS 2015

ECMS_15smallSoftICE members Robin T. Bye and Ottar L. Osen have together with eminent automation student Birger Skogeng Pedersen written a scientific research paper called “A Computer-Automated Design Tool for Intelligent Virtual Prototyping of Offshore Cranes.” The paper has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in the Proceedings of the 29th European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS’15) and will be presented in the Simulators for Virtual Prototyping and Training (SVT) track (chaired by Robin T. Bye and AAUC colleague Vilmar Æsøy) at the conference in Varna, Bulgaria 26-29 May 2015.

AAUC researchers have been regular attenders and contributors at ECMS conferences over the years, which have resulted in AAUC chairing several own tracks and even hosting the conference in Ålesund in 2013 (chairs were AAUC staff Webjørn Rekdalsbakken, Robin T. Bye, and Houxiang Zhang), a conference that was honoured to have recent Norwegian Nobel Prize laureate May-Britt Moser as a keynote speaker.

We will make the full paper available when the conference proceedings have been released. In the meantime, we provide the paper abstract below.
