Researchers Develop New Method to Predict and Optimize Performance of Deep Learning Models

Over the past decade, the world has seen tremendous increases in the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The main horsepower behind the success of AI systems is provided by deep learning models and machine learning (ML) algorithms. Recently, a new AI paradigm has emerged: Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) including its subfield Neural Architecture Search (NAS). State-of-the-art ML models consist of complex workflows with numerous design choices and variables that must be tuned for optimal performance.

How New Machine Learning Techniques Could Improve MRI Scans

WNCG professor Jon Tamir aims to leverage machine learning techniques to make brain scans faster and more informative. He received an Amazon Machine Learning Research Award in 2020 from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to support the work.

A recent article on Amazon Science explored the details of Prof. Tamir's research on MRI scans.

Wireless E-Tattoo for Pneumonia Aims to Transform Patient Monitoring

Pneumonia has emerged as a life-threatening complication of COVID-19, accounting for nearly half of all patients who have died from the novel coronavirus in the U.S. since the beginning of the pandemic. Even before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, pneumonia was responsible for more than 43,000 deaths in 2019.

Tianlong Chen Selected for IBM Fellowship

IBM recently announced the awardees of this year’s IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Program. WNCG student Tianlong Chen was among only 16 students selected worldwide for 2021.

UT Austin Selected as Home of National AI Institute Focused on Machine Learning

The National Science Foundation has selected The University of Texas at Austin to lead the NSF AI Institute for Foundations of Machine Learning, bolstering the university’s existing strengths in this emerging field. Machine learning is the technology that drives AI systems, enabling them to acquire knowledge and make predictions in complex environments. This technology has the potential to transform everything from transportation to entertainment to health care.

Recap: WNCG Hosts 16th Annual Texas Wireless Summit

The Engineering Education and Research Center at The University of Texas was abuzz with over 200 participants gathered for Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) on November 6. This year’s theme was “AI and the Mobile Device.”

Held annually by WNCG, TWS brings together leading figures in industry, academia, and government to discuss the latest developments in information systems technology. “AI and the Mobile Device” marked the 16th summit hosted by the group.
