Pregnancy Models Give Birth to New Health Insights

Having a baby is a life-changing decision that often requires a great deal of time and energy to ensure a positive outcome. But the cost of assisted reproductive technologies like artificial insemination or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and the emotional impacts of infertility can be a lot to bear. To try to improve the chances of […]

Wenchao Li: Building Safe and Trustworthy AI Systems

Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere, powering applications such as Spotify music suggestions, facial recognition from your smartphone or the ETA of your Uber. Neural networks are also being explored as controllers in a breadth of safety-critical systems, from piloting drones to detecting anomalies in nuclear power plants to maintaining first responder communication systems. At the […]

IRS Stares Technological Advancement Issues in the Face

Almost every American is used to sharing information with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), but people were about to become eerily intimate with the agency after they announced the launch of a new website requirement:  live video identity verification. The agency partnered with the third-party company to prevent scammers from benefiting off of the […]

Lighting the Way Forward for Autonomous Vehicles

CISE Faculty Affiliate Ajay Joshi with collaborators at Lightmatter and Harvard University receive $4.8M IARPA grant to develop a new Electro-Photonic Computing (EPiC) system for  AI-based navigation in Autonomous Vehicles Anyone who has ever been behind the wheel of a car knows that response time is crucial. The human sensory system needs to be fully engaged in order […]

CISE Faculty Spotlight: Brian Kulis

The powers of machine learning in Amazon Alexa and music generation Every day millions of people look something up online. It’s become a habit, a part of our lives that we take for granted– and we can thank machine learning for that. Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that works with computer algorithms. […]

Faculty Spotlight: Alex Olshevsky

Easing the Economic Strain of COVID-19 Lockdowns At the start of the pandemic, CISE Faculty Affiliate Alex Olshevsky (ECE) started developing models to find the best way to lockdown regions to control the spread of the virus. He had previously been working on multi-agent control, which he described as “a collection of robots that want […]

High-Fidelity Self-Learning Tool for Residential Load and Load Flexibility Forecasting

The project will research, develop, and demonstrate technology that enables the modulation of controllable household loads, to provide multiple grid services, including peak capacity management, ramp support, and frequency regulation.  We will show how the fusion of data from multiple sources, including communicating thermostats, smart appliances, weather forecasts, utility bills, solar production data, and interval […]
