Engineers named fellows of Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association

Ramesh Agarwal, a professor of mechanical engineering & materials science, and Yixin Chen, a professor of computer science and engineering, both in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, have been elected as fellows of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA), an interdisciplinary organization of AI industries. AAIA promotes developing and applying AI in different fields of science and technology.

Agarwal — who applies computational fluid dynamics to solve problems in mechanical, aerospace, energy and environmental systems — was chosen for his work in machine learning combined with genetic algorithm-based optimization.

Chen’s research interests are in machine learning and artificial intelligence. He specializes in both fundamental research and real-world applications of deep learning, interpretable AI, learning of time-series and graphs, planning, optimization and their applications in clinical decision support and health care.
