Lydia E. Kavraki(Rice University),
"Robots, Molecules and Physical Computing"
Emphasis will be placed on recent results for systems with increased physical realism and complex dynamics. The talk will then discuss how the experience gained through sampling-based methods in robotics has led to algorithms for characterizing the flexibility of biomolecules for drug discovery. A new trend in Computer Science is presented in this talk. It concerns the development of algorithmic frameworks for addressing complex high-dimensional geometric problems arising, at different scales, in the physical world. The challenges of physical computing will be highlighted as well as the opportunities to impact molecular biology and medicine.
