Waheed Bajwa receives ARO Grant

Associate Professor Waheed Bajwa has won an Army Research Office (ARO) award for the project titled "Robust, Decentralized Feature Learning From Big Data." This is a three year $420,000 project. 

As part of this project, Waheed and members of his lab will develop, analyze, and validate a computational framework for robust, decentralized processing of intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance  data that formally takes into account the challenges that are explicitly aligned with the future needs of the Army. The fundamental problems that will be addressed in the project range from robust, decentralized processing algorithms that exploit geographically distributed and contaminated big data for near-optimal inference to efficient techniques for inference from streaming data and message passing strategies that can manage Byzantine failures of some of the distributed entities. 

Congratulations Waheed!
