Peter O. Stahl Advanced Design Forum on March 6, 2023

Enabled by a donation from Peter’s wife, Dr. Cynthia Arnold, this forum aims to bring together industry leaders, government stakeholders and academic researchers, to foster collaboration and sharing of data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning best practices, to transform the ways in which chemicals and materials are designed, developed and produced. It exemplifies the commitment of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science (CEMS) to excellence in research and education, now leveraging the emerging fields of data science and machine learning.

The forum will include sessions and panel discussions led by experts from organizations including: 3M, Dow, Mayo Clinic, National Science Foundation, Linde, Sherwin Williams, General Mills, Seagate, Amazon, MIT, University of Minnesota, and more!
