UMSS34 Keynote Speaker:

Sreeram “Ram” Dhurjaty, PhD,

Sreeram “Ram” Dhurjaty PhD is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE)

All of us approximate. Engineering and science are full of approximations. When we approximate adequately, we reach our goals. Depending on the context in which they are made, improper approximations can be disastrous and can have tragic, even life-threatening, consequences. In this talk, Dr. Dhurjaty will illustrate, with simple examples, both adequate and inadequate approximations, and their consequences.
