DEPEND graduate Arjun P. Athreya has developed a system for the Mayo Clinic to use that combines artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve diagnoses for depression. Featured both on the ECE Illinois and Mayo Clinic Magazine website, Dr. Athreya’s work will help to increase treatment prognoses precision.
Ravi Iyer, Saurabh Jha, and Subho Banerjee were all quoted in a recent article by Science & Technology Research News – click here to read. The article covered the work that our researchers have done testing the safety of autonomous vehicles through AI and machine learning.
“Using AI to improve autonomous vehicles is extremely hard because of the complexity of the vehicle’s electrical and mechnical components, as well as variability in external conditions, such as weather, road conditions, topography, traffic patterns, and lighting” -Ravi Iyer from STRN article, CSL Researchers Develop Platform for Scalable Testing of Autonomous Vehicle Safety
Recently, a ScienceDaily article was published covering the work that the DEPEND group has done with AI, machine learning, and autonomous technology. The article points out the difficulties that come with type of research and the importance of completing it properly. Steve Keckler, vice president of Architecture Research for NVIDIA, is quotes in the article, “the safety of autonomous vehicles is critical to their success in the marketplace and in society”. Check out the article here.
Professor Ravi Iyer and DEPEND group researchers have had their work on autonomous vehicle safety highlighted in an article that you can read here. The group is working on “a platform that enables companies to more quickly and cost-effectively address safety in the complex and ever-changing environment of autonomous technology”. Make sure to check out this YouTube video that demonstrates what the group’s simulations look like!
In a recent Forbes article about how machine learning is helping to craft precision medicine, the work of Dr. Liewei Wang (of the Mayo Clinic and CCBGM) and of many Depend Group researchers, was cited. In the article, the collaborative efforts between the Mayo Clinic, the Depend Group, and others was highlighted by their 2017 paper which you can read here.
An article written about the work of Yogatheesan Varatharajah, Dr. Greg Worrell, and Professor Ravishankar Iyer, has been awarded the Top CSL Story of 2018. This was based on the number of clicks the article received on the CSL website.
Professor Ravishankar Iyer and Depend group researcher, Saurabh Jha, have been using data from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) to deploy algorithms set to fix current and future issues with the Blue Waters super computer system. Their work was highlighted by the CSL in an article that you can read here
