Conquering Complexity:
Challenges and Opportunities
November 3-5, 2014   |   Philadelphia, PA

Multi-faceted systems of the future will entail complex logic and reasoning with many levels of reasoning in intricate arrangement.  The organization of these systems involves a web of connections and demonstrates self-driven adaptability.  They are designed for autonomy and may exhibit emergent behavior that can be visualized.  Our quest continues to handle complexities, design and operation of these systems.  An example of such systems would be neuromorphic machine technology that scales to biological level computation like “Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics” SyNAPSE program of DARPA, as well as Deep Learning algorithms that can provide adaptive behavior to these systems of large-scale distributed networks through leveraging big data.
