About the SimEA project Seminar Series

The SimEA project Seminar Series aims at promoting and disseminating scientific knowledge, focusing on Computational Science and Engineering, by featuring prominent researchers from around the world presenting their views and addressing key questions. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 810660.



The algorithm behind particle methods is extremely versatile and used in a variety of applications that range from molecular dynamics to astrophysics. For continuum mechanics applications, the concept of ‘particle’ can be generalized to include discrete portions of solid and liquid matter. This talk shows that it is possible to further extend the concept of ‘particle’ to include artificial neurons used in Artificial Intelligence. This produces a new class of computational methods based on ‘particle-neuron duals’ that combines the ability of computational particles to model physical systems and the ability of artificial neurons to learn from data. During the talk, several applications of these particle-neurons duals will be presented and discussed.
