Dr. Po-Yen Chen

Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering 

University of Maryland, College Park 



The combination of machine learning and collaborative robotics is creating a transformative movement in the field of advanced materials. In this presentation, Dr. Chen will outline three research projects that demonstrate the integration of these concepts: wearable sensor modules, strain sensors, and biodegradable plastic substitutes. 


About the Seminar Series

Autonomy and autonomous systems are critical to our future, not only in defense and industry, but in our everyday lives. The technologies that contribute to these capabilities and systems run the gamut – AI, machine learning, algorithms, materials science, physics, electronics, computer science and engineering, aerospace, mechanical, cybersecurity. While we may be familiar with uncrewed systems, remote operations and automation, autonomy takes us to the next level of capability... and requires the next level of trust in them. How do we bring this all together?

Evening@SMART is a periodic series focused on bringing together thought and action leaders in government, industry, and academia to share valuable perspectives on these and many more current technical topics. Dynamic presentations from prominent experts and stimulating discussions around cutting-edge topics aim to advance research and innovation and promote interdisciplinary collaboration. It is designed to spark growth through fostering dialogue and creating connections.

Evening@SMART is hosted by the University of Maryland MATRIX Lab and held at the University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland SMART Building in California, Maryland. Each event runs from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you have suggestions or ideas for future Evening@SMART events please email us at matrix@umd.edu.
