Abstract: At Monumo we are taking a modern, AI-driven approach to solving complex engineering problems. Our focus is the environmental challenge and the need for more efficient electric motors and power trains, but our approach is quite general. In this talk I will cover some of the principles behind building a modern framework for engineering simulation. These include designing for large-scale parallelism, adopting the latest and fastest languages available (notably Julia), using the most powerful mathematical language available (geometric algebra) and learning from 25 years of spectacular development achieved by the games industry.

Speaker Bio: Dr Chris Doran is AI Research Fellow and Head of 3D at Monumo and also a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College. His background is physics and in 2005 he founded Geomerics, whose revolutionary lighting technology Enlighten has been used in 100s of video games. Chris has also worked at Arm and been Entrepreneur in Residence for Cambridge enterprise.

Pizza will be available before the talk.
