CSE Assistant Professor Karthik Dantu’s project, entitled “Enabling Seamless Vision Sensing in Cloud-Edge Systems,” will develop computing solutions between the cloud and edge/mobile devices to enable more complex visual sensing on mobile/wearable devices for applications in augmented reality, virtual reality, face recognition, activity recognition and others. He will develop software frameworks to allow easier deployment of future visual sensing applications through multi-sensor fusion, providing spatial awareness on edge devices and smartly moving the computation between the edge and the cloud.

Dantu joined UB in 2013. Previously, he was a postdoctoral fellow in computer science at Harvard University. He received his PhD in computer science from the University of Southern California in 2010. Dantu's research interests are in sensing/systems challenges in mobile systems and robotics.
