Research by Distinguished Professor of Engineering John Bailleul questions how animals operate and how you might use animal behaviors to design control systems.
Recognition of his work on control of network systems, optimization and robust learning.
Our own Divisions Graduate Programs Manager, Christine Ritzkowski has just been elected to the Academic Resilience Consortium (ARC) Steering Committee. ARC is “an association of faculty, staff, and students in higher education who are dedicated to understanding and promoting student resilience. Members represent many functions in higher education, such as learning services, counseling services, advising […]
Professor Ayse Coskun (ECE) has been named the next Director of the Boston University Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE). Coskun will replace Yannis Paschalidis who has become the new Director for the Hariri Institute. “CISE has great strengths in the traditional areas of information & systems engineering, with core strengths in robotics and […]
The emergence of soft robots will enable safe human interactions which will allow robots to assist in the industrial, medical, automotive and space industries. College of Engineering Professor Andrew Sabelhaus (ME, SE), has been working on making soft robots safer to improve these human interaction tasks, in areas such as medicine, as well as explore difficult or dangerous locations. His work will help improve the design of many other soft robots.
Researchers at Boston University have developed a new tool that could automate the process and, eventually, allow it to move online. Their machine learning–powered computational model can detect cognitive impairment from audio recordings of neuropsychological tests—no in-person appointment needed.
Ioannis Paschalidis New Director of Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering
The Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering will have a new director as of July 1. Ioannis Paschalidis (ECE, BME, SE), a College of Engineering Distinguished Professor of Engineering and of computing and data sciences, will oversee the institute’s move into a new, eye-arresting building (the largest on the Charles River Campus), the Center for Computing & Data Sciences.
The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative has awarded a $4.4 million grant to the College of Engineering to construct a new robotics lab focusing on graduate education at the master’s degree level. Boston University is contributing another $4.4 million, bringing the overall investment to $8.8 million over three years. The grant will fund the development of the Robotics & Autonomous Systems Teaching & Innovation Center (RASTIC), a hands-on robotics teaching facility that is expected to complement the College’s master’s degree program in Robotics & Autonomous Systems and enhance robotics capstone experiences for undergraduate students.
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 […]
