As a ETI master’s student at Georgia Institute of Technology, Kentez Craig is inspired by his parents who served as first responders working as paramedics for local hospitals, as he helps develop and build protective equipment for healthcare professionals on the front lines fighting the battle against COVID-19.
Alfred Hero, the John H. Holland Distinguished University Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, was elected Fellow of SIAM — 2020 Class of Fellows of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Dr. Hero also won the 2020 IEEE Fourier Award “for contributions to the foundations of statistical signal processing with applications to distributed sensing and performance benchmarking.”
A consortium of 12 universities and 11 national laboratories led by the Georgia Institute of Technology has been awarded $25 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration(NNSA) to develop new technologies and educational programs to support the agency’s nuclear science, security and nonproliferation goals.
The award will provide $5 million per year across a five-year period to link basic research at universities with the capabilities of national laboratories through the Consortium for Enabling Technologies and Innovation (ETI). The effort will focus on three core disciplines: computer and engineering science research through machine learning and high performance computing, advanced manufacturing and nuclear detection technologies.
