Computational Fabrication

The first part of the course describes computer vision and graphics techniques used to represent, model, manipulate and scan 3D objects. Next, it provides an introduction to 3D printing, discussing the key opportunities. The second half of the course is dedicated to computational techniques for turning digital designs into real objects. After introducing relevant numerical optimization and simulation techniques, the course discusses recent advances in the computational fabrication field. The examples include methods for fabricating objects with prescribed visual, optical, and mechanical properties and novel tools for customizing 3D prints.

Graphical Models and Network Science

This course is an introduction to the statistical modeling of networks. Emphasis will be on statistical methodology and subject-matter-agnostic models, rather than on the specifics of different application areas. The course will deal with complex stochastic interaction models that can be used to describe specific dynamics of well-defined systems or more parsimonious models to explore the interaction structure of large systems. No prior experience with networks is expected, but familiarity with statistical modeling is essential. 

In the 2022 Autumn Semester, prospective students joined the following lectures:
