- Julian True's (Naimul Khan's masters student) paper, "Motion vector Extrapolation for Video Object Detection" won the best paper runner-up award at the CVPR 2021 robust video understanding workshop. The paper shows that utilizing motion vectors can decrease object detection latency 25x while maintaining accuracy.
- Xiao-Ping Zhang has been named Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, succeeding Lina J. Karam, Lebanese American University, who has held the post as Editor-in-Chief since 2019.
- AI MASTER OF ENGINEERING DEGREE • The department offers a master’s degree (MEng) in Electrical and Computer Engineering with specialization in AI that provides students with the technical training and ethical awareness they need to be successful professionals in the AI field.
