Intelligent platforms that collaborate with operators can enhance human capabilities while reducing tedium and adding resiliency and adaptability to current systems. While programmable machines are limited in their ability to address fuzzy complex scenarios, high dimensional dynamic processing, based on neurologically inspired reservoir computing concepts can address these issues. This talk by Dr. Bryant Wysocki explores the brain and how it relates to unconventional computational systems with emphasis on the basics of a new class of computationally intelligent processes governed by the nonlinear dynamics of electronic and optical systems.

Those interested in learning more about reservoir computing and related topics are invited to attend the free TACNY John Edson Sweet Lecture on Tuesday, April 14, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Onondaga Community College. Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that people RSVP by emailing sweet.lecture@tacny.org by Tuesday, April 10, 2015.

Presenter:

oesgp_schematicDr. Bryant Wysocki is the Chief Engineer, Information Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Rome, N.Y. Bryant’s recent work examines the development of unconventional computational systems with emphasis on nano-computing architectures and biologically inspired neuromorphic processing.

Dr. Wysocki received his PhD from Cornell University and is actively involved in community STEM outreach through AFRL and the Cornell Cooperative Extension. He currently serves as a Conference Chair for The Eighth IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence for Security and Defense Applications (CISDA 2015), scheduled to take place on May 26-28 in Verona NY.

TACNY John Edson Sweet Lecture Series

TACNY John Edson Sweet Lectures, a program founded in 1913, features discussions about topics in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an informal atmosphere. A minimum of six Sweet Lectures are held each year.

Technology Alliance of Central New York

Founded in 1903 as the Technology Club of Syracuse, the nonprofit Technology Alliance of Central New York’s mission is to facilitate community awareness, appreciation, and education of technology; and to collaborate with like-minded organizations across Central New York.
