The Department for Computer Science, in partnership with CCS and other UM units, is accepting applications for the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF REU) summer research experience. This 10-week program runs from May 22 – July 28 and focuses on the discovery and visualization of structure in large datasets.
Dr. Ge-Cheng Zha, a professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with the UM College of Engineering, and a CCS Member, received a DARPA grant to conduct research that could transform the aviation industry.
Congratulations to CCS’s newest Member, Dr. Wangda Zuo! An Assistant Professor in the Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Miami College of Engineering, Dr. Zuo runs the Sustainable Building Systems Laboratory (SBS Lab), which focuses on developing cutting edge modeling and simulation technology and applying them to reduce building energy and water consumption […]
In what sense is a city smart? There are established entities defining this rich area of cross-disciplinary studies, and they refer to social, technical, economic, and political factors that keep evolving . . .
A growing number of journalists are working to better understand the intricacies of data . . .
The push for open data has prompted the release of countless datasets. But the raw data alone can’t adequately serve the public. After all, it’s hard to imagine the average person investing the time—or possessing the skills—to make meaningful sense of a massive spreadsheet. That’s where the media comes in. Whenever possible, journalists should provide […]
