Our research spans artificial intelligence, systems, and theory,
and it is well funded by federal, state, and industryl sources. Our
faculty work in muliti-disciplinary and newly emerging fields. The
possibilities are endless.
Xu created AutoDietary—software
that tracks the unique sounds produced by food as people chew
it. AutoDietary, placed near the throat by a necklace
delivery system developed at China's Northeastern University, helps
users measure their caloric intake.
Dantu owns the vision component of the RoboBee Initiative,
led by the National Science Foundation and Harvard
University. The "eyes" that Dr. Dantu is integrating are
laser-powered sensors that enable the mechanical bees to orient
themselves in space.
Regan develops algorithms that detect cheating in chess
games. His software compares a player's moves to a database
of the player's typical gameplay, then makes an assessment of the
statistical likelihood of cheating. Dr. Regan frequently
consults at international chess matches.
Computer security research focuses on cryptography, trust,
privacy and information survivability issues such as threat
modeling, intrusion detection, assessment and recovery in networked
computers and wireless networks.
Research in medical applications focuses on developing efficient
algorithms and techniques for automatic analysis of biomedical
images, medical evaluation, computer assisted diagnosis and
surgery, and treatment planning.
Computer Science Education is an area of research which focuses
on curricular and pedagogic issues in the teaching of computer
science, as well as related issues such as recruitment and
retention of under-represented groups in the discipline.
