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 is 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 Zhong-Ping Jiang is widely recognized for his contributions to the stability and control of interconnected nonlinear systems, and is a key contributor to the nonlinear small-gain theory. Some of his most recent projects involve examining human motion in an attempt to expand our understanding of the brain and aid clinicians in devising new therapies for patients with neurodegenerative disorders; and providing mathematical control theory and algorithms for systems of nonlinear differential equations that are prone to uncertainties — work that could aid in fields as varied as marine biology and renewable energy networking.
Without good data for the public health sector, people’s lives are at stake. Assistant professor Rumi Chunara is developing computational and statistical approaches for acquiring, integrating and using data to improve population-level public health. Her recent work exposed disparities in access to and use of telemedicine to vulnerable populations.
