Algorithms of complexity: building patterns from the bottom up
Naomi Leonard (EE Ph.D. 1994)
Edwin S. Wilsey Professor
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
ECE and ISR alumna Naomi Leonard will be a featured speaker at TEDxKonstanz, Kaleidoscope – Patterns in Nature and Society. Her talk on “Flock Logic” is part of the “Algorithms of complexity: building patterns from the bottom up” session on March 4. At Maryland, Leonard was advised by Professor P. S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR).
Note: There are two talks on this day; the first begins at 11 a.m. ET. Leonard’s talk is second. Because the website has not given a starting time for this talk, just for the general session, you may wish to tune in at 11 a.m. and watch both talks.
TEDxKonstanz is an event organized by students and members of the University of Konstanz and the Max-Planck Institute of Animal Behavior. This event will be held March 2-5, 2021 with the theme of “Kaleidoscope: Patterns in Nature and Society.” A kaleidoscope evokes the image of shifting patterns. It communicates the idea that patterns can arise from and be influenced by many things, varying with our perspective and changing over time.
