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.
The construction industry is booming and contributes more than $10 trillion annually to the world economy. However, it has the lowest productivity of any manufacturing industry. Dr. Zachary Grasley has received a National Science Foundation planning grant to help bring artificial intelligence to the construction industry.
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.
Dr. David Staack and graduate research assistant Xin Tang are looking to nature for inspiration in developing a new method of underwater plasma generation using shrimp as a model – a discovery which could provide significant improvements for actions ranging from water sterilization to drilling.
A team of researchers from Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin is taking a deeper look into post-Harvey Houston to find new ways to combat construction-related labor exploitation and trafficking.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas A&M University Division of Research hosted a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Proposal Writing Workshop, featuring Dr. George Hazelrigg, a former NSF program officer who has been speaking at similar workshops for more than 15 years.
Texas A&M University Department of Mechanical Engineering graduate student Cole Fincher has been selected for the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program, an honor bestowed upon only the most outstanding graduate students pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees.
Engineers from Texas A&M University and Virginia Tech report important new insights into nanoporous gold--a material with growing applications in several areas, including energy storage and biomedical devices--all without stepping into a lab.
