We are pleased to announce that ECE Assistant Professor Vishal Patel is recipient of the 2016 Young Investigator Program (YIP) Award.
The goal of Dr. Patel’s project is to develop robust and efficient methods for learning structured representations of multimodal data. In particular, he will develop methods for multimodal metric learning and multimodal data fusion based on sparse and low-rank representations.
Vishal Patel received an award from ARO for the following project: Adaptive Sparse and Low-Rank Models for Real-World Visual Recognition (4/1/16-3/31/19, $327,127).
The goal of this project is to develop weakly-supervised and domain adaptive sparse and low-rank models for processing real-world visual data.
Waheed Bajwa received a one year, $110K subaward from General Dynamics as part of the ARL Robotics CTA Program for the following project: "Models and Algorithms for Human Activity Recognition." The abstract is as follows:
"This research deals with the challenges of human activity recognition using either intensity or both intensity and depth data. It addresses the problems of unsupervised learning of human action attributes from video data as well as provides means for semantic understanding of these action attributes."
Wade Trappe, in collaboration with Mayflower Inc, has received a Phase-1 STTR from the US Air Force for a project titled, "Collaborative Situation Aware PNT (CSAP) Solution". This contract is a 6-month award, with Rutgers University receiving $45K.
Anand Sarwate received an award from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as as supplement to the CCICADA center with Rebecca Wright and Anand as PIs. The main award is
