09/25/2019 - 08:41 Earlier this month, amidst towering Windy City skyscrapers and overlooking the Chicago River, some of the brightest minds in the robotics community came together for the US Robotics Roadmap’s Chicago Workshop. The goal of this gathering of visionaries? To discuss the exciting future of robotics and how the field will continue to shape society and empower people in their everyday lives.
09/10/2019 - 09:43 Started in 2017, ERI is a five-year $1.5 billion investment in defense electronic systems by DARPA. Each year, researchers leading aspects of programs funded by the initiative are invited to share their research. This year, CSL Professor Naresh Shanbhag and ITI Professor Sarita Adve were among the invited presenters.
09/05/2019 - 09:20 CSL alum Bilal Mehdi is helping to keep GM at the forefront of the field by developing technology that will help pave the way for the next-generation of self-driving cars.
09/03/2019 - 09:27 Illinois researchers, together with collaborators from IBM and MIT, have developed algorithms that can discover new formulas for concrete that are stronger and reduce its carbon footprint by more than 40%.
08/30/2019 - 10:16 CAEML is working to create models that could improve the efficacy of the "try before you manufacture" process designers of electronic devices have come to depend on.
08/29/2019 - 11:52 V2X communications will be critical in improving driving safety and traffic efficiency. Auto giant Toyota is collaborating with ITI researchers to create technology that enhances secure communications between cars and their surroundings.
Infosys and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Enter a Strategic Partnership for Precision Medicine08/22/2019 - 14:44 Infosys recently became the latest member of the Center for Computational Biotechnology and Genomic Medicine located at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
08/22/2019 - 09:58 Barcodes are all the buzz when it comes to identifying bees, thanks to research conducted by the University of Illinois’ Institute for Genomic Biology and Coordinated Science Lab.
08/19/2019 - 10:22 A team of computer scientists at UC San Diego and the University of Illinois have developed an app that allows state and federal inspectors to detect devices that steal consumer credit and debit card data at gas pumps. The devices, known as skimmers, use Bluetooth to transmit the data they steal.
08/15/2019 - 11:21 When most kids leave middle school, they have not yet decided what they want their career to be, but they have thought about what they do not want to do. CREDC is working to keep computer science and computer engineering off the latter list with a new series of STEM-related activity books geared for ages 10 and up.
08/14/2019 - 16:22 CSL Professor Karrie Karahalios has been selected for one of the University of Illinois’ most prestigious faculty honors, being chosen as a 2019 University Scholar.
07/30/2019 - 11:29 CSL Professor Nancy Amato is one of the three recipients of this year’s IEEE RAS George Saridis Leadership Award in Robotics and Automation from the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
07/25/2019 - 14:37 After completing his degree in 1998, Krishna Ratakonda was packed up and ready to take an academic job when a conversation with a member of his Ph.D. committee led him down a completely different path: industry. He didn’t know it then, but that conversation was the beginning of a career that would result in him becoming a distinguished IBM Fellow.
07/23/2019 - 21:22 Researchers from the University of Illinois’ National Center for Professional & Research Ethics (NCPRE) are developing a new curriculum for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).
07/19/2019 - 14:27 CSL professor Naresh Shanbhag recalls how ECE ILLINOIS distinguished alumnus Jack Kilby’s invention of the integrated circuit was a critical component of computers being placed on board the Apollo 11 spacecraft, helping make the mission possible and a success.
07/15/2019 - 13:20 Robots are good at making identical repetitive movements, such as a simple task on an assembly line, but they lack the ability to perceive objects as they move through an environment. A recent study was led by CSL researchers on 6D object pose estimation to develop a filter to give robots greater spatial perception so they can manipulate objects and navigate through space more accurately.
07/09/2019 - 14:14 The National Center for Professional & Research Center in CSL is teaming up with the American Geophysical Union to launch The AGU Ethics and Equity Initiative: Catalyzing Cultural Change in the Sciences with New Resources and Tracking Tools.
07/09/2019 - 10:55 CSL Professor Bruce Hajek is trying to find an algorithm that would save time and money during data collection by limiting the amount of information that has to be gathered and also fill in the holes when data is scarce.
