Data Science / AI / Robotics
Three disciplines come together to create the technologies that will define the future.
Our AI experts and roboticists are working in concert with our data scientists, who are discovering new ways to analyze, visualize, and use their skills for a common goal: to harness the collective power of data, machine learning techniques, and autonomous systems to address the issues facing the world.
AI is everywhere. Can we make sure it's ethical?
AI powers so much of our world. It’s used by recruiters, police departments and businesses to help make their work more efficient. But with people’s lives on the line, can we trust that the algorithms behind AI are being created fairly? NYU Tandon researchers are helping to create an ecosystem where AI is critically analyzed to minimize the bias behind the code, and to ensure that these systems are used fairly and equitably whenever possible.
Better robotics through better data
At NYU Tandon, researchers are using 5G to connect autonomous teams of robots to complete tough and dangerous jobs, mimicking complex animal behaviors in remotely controlled robots, and creating cheaper, more accessible robots so that anyone can learn to program the next advancement in robotics. The future is here, and it’s being developed by our engineers.
Professor Juliana Freire is developing data management techniques and infrastructure to address problems introduced by emerging applications. Her recent work focuses on urban environments, using data from photography, the web and other sources to understand the ways we move and interact with the cities we live in. She has received several awards, including an NSF CAREER, an IBM Faculty award, and a Google Faculty Research award.
Professor Claudio Silva — an expert in visualization, geometric computing, data science, sports analytics, and urban computing — was elected to the inaugural IEEE Visualization Academy. He has contributed to large-scale technology projects, including UV-CDAT, a novel climate data analysis tool that he helped build, Major League Baseball (MLB) MLB.com's Statcast player tracking system, which won the Alpha Award for Best Analytics Innovation/Technology at the 2015 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, and TaxiVis, a tool developed in his group, is currently being used at the NYC Department of Transportation and the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
AI is becoming more and more prevalent in businesses, public services, and other parts of our lives. But when the algorithms behind AI are written with the same prejudices that marr our current society, it has the potential to deepen inequality, not overcome it. In this webinar, members of The Center for Responsible AI walk us through their perspectives on the use of AI and automation, and their recommendations to make sure responsible AI will be the only kind of AI used in the future in this seminar.
