Seminar Room B503 - Lab1 Bldg.


Dear all,

Neural Computation Unit (Doya Unit) would like to invite you to a seminar as follows.

Speaker: Prof. Jean-Jacques Slotine
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Registration is required to participate by zoom:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Title: Contraction analysis of convergence and synchronization

Abstract:  This talks provides a tutorial introduction to contraction theory, as applied to the analysis of convergence or synchronization in nonlinear dynamical systems.

Biolgraphy: Jean-Jacques Slotine is Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Information Sciences, Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and Director of the Nonlinear Systems Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983, at age 23. After working at Bell Labs in the computer research department, he joined the faculty at MIT in 1984. Professor Slotine teaches and conducts research in the areas of dynamical systems, robotics, control theory, computational neuroscience, and systems biology. He has been a Distinguished Faculty at Google AI since 2019. One of the most cited researchers in systems science, he was a member of the French National Science Council from 1997 to 2002,  a member of Singapore’s A*STAR SigN Advisory Board from 2007 to 2010, and has been a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Italian Institute of Technology since 2010. 

We hope to see many of you at the seminar.
