DATA, DECISIONS AND CONTROL

Quantum Manufacturing
Researchers in quantum manufacturing investigate the fundamental science driving quantum interactions. Deeper understanding of these phenomena will enable material, device, and manufacturing innovation for a new generation of information technology.

Machine Learning and Optimization
Researchers in computational science are focused on streamlining machine learning in ways that enable computers to learn complex concepts efficiently and accurately, but on a larger scale and at a faster rate than humans are capable of.

Sensors and Sensing
From health monitoring and smart homes to smart cities and power grids, the uses for sensing technologies are endless. Our research is aimed at advancing the operation, measurement capabilities and implementation of sensors.
