Trends and Prospective in Risk and Reliability Engineering Research – Mohammad Pourgol-Mohammad, Ph.D.

This is the IEEE Boston Reliability chapter December Annual Past Chairs Dinner Meeting. IEEE members & non-members are welcome, and the meeting and food are free of charge, but registration is required in advance, so we can finalize food and drink arrangements.

This meeting is limited to 40 members and guests. You MUST be registered to attend.

Please Register by COB Thursday, December 7th so we can finalize the arrangements!

This talk will highlight current and promising directions in the fields of Reliability Engineering and Risk Assessment. Leading topics such as research on the fundamental sciences that underpin risk and reliability technologies, challenges in reliability of ultra-complex systems of interacting hardware and software, utilization and processing of large data and machine learning algorithms, advances in system-level prognostics and health monitoring, and new approaches to integrate physics of failure and traditional reliability assessment methods.
