Most humans are biased. But did you know that machine learning algorithms can also be biased? Dr. Xia "Ben" Hu has been bestowed a joint NSF-Amazon award to fix this problem and make artificial intelligence fairer.
Dr. Zhangyang (Atlas) Wang, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, has been awarded two grants from the National Science Foundation for developing highly efficient and energy-saving machine learning algorithms for use on local devices rather than on remote servers.
During the inaugural President’s Excellence Fund Symposium, eight Texas A&M faculty members, including three from the College of Engineering, that earned project funding from the first round of Texas A&M's X-Grants gave presentations about their research.
Dr. Daniel A. Jiménez, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed the interim chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA).
During the second annual "Aggies Celebrate Teaching! – Recognizing Transformational Learning" reception, three faculty members from the Texas A&M University College of Engineering were honored by the Center for Teaching Excellence at Texas A&M. This year’s award reception was part of the inaugural Texas A&M University Transformational Teaching and Learning Conference.
The paper "Comparing Visual, Textual and Multimodal Features for Detecting Sign Language in Video Sharing Sites," by Caio Monteiro, Dr. Frank Shipman, and Dr. Ricardo Gutierrez-Osuna from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University won the Best Paper Award at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval.
Dr. Xia (Ben) Hu, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, was awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER) to build a human-centric network-embedding framework, in which human prior knowledge would be properly modeled and integrated in the framework process in contrast to the traditional data-driven network-embedding framework.
Dr. Juan Garay, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, was named a Fellow of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) for his fundamental contributions at the interface of cryptography and distributed computing and for service to the cryptographic research community.
Dr. Nancy M. Amato, Unocal and Regents Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been elected as a 2018 Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) Fellow.
The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR) received the Emergency Management Association of Texas (EMAT) Emergency Management Technology and Innovation Award at the 11th annual EMAT Leadership Symposium last week.
