SCS is proud to announce its New Faculty Introduction Series, a weekly showcase of the research and creative work from our latest additions to the faculty. The event will feature two new faculty members focused on similar topics who will portrait of David Lindlbauereach present an overview of their work. Their department head or a senior faculty member will then moderate a live Q&A session, for which audience members/viewers can presubmit questions or ask in real-time. 

We invite all members of the SCS community, including our corporate, government and foundation partners, to join us in sharing insights, building connections and welcoming our newest faculty members.

This week will feature Alexandra Ion and David Lindlbauer. The Q&A will be moderated by Scott Hudson.

Cancer research is entering a new era marked by an explosion in data. Future methods for diagnosing, treating and even curing cancers will be discovered through foundational research using computational and computationally assisted approaches to cancer research. Individual researchers at Carnegie Mellon are world leaders in their respective subdisciplines of computational cancer research.

We have launched the Computational Cancer initiative to coordinate the efforts of the CMU community of cancer researchers. The initiative aims to develop the biological knowledge, biotechnology, and computational theory and tools needed to understand the complexity of oncogenesis and tumor progression in the era of data-driven cancer research. Projected outcomes include new tools and techniques for improving diagnostics for early detection, intelligent drug discovery and validation, and advanced precision genomic medicine for optimal treatment regimens for each patient

AI for Social Good Symposium 2021

The rapid advances in AI have made it possible to leverage AI techniques to address some of the most challenging problems faced by society. Indeed, there is a growing interest in this topic in the AI community in the past few years. However, AI researchers often find themselves without a clear path from addressing fundamental research problems to real-world deployment and positive real-world impact. The 2021 CMU AI and Social Good Symposium aims to address these challenges by bringing together AI researchers and social impact leaders to present their ideas and applications for maximizing the social good.

We hope that this gathering of research talent will inspire the creation of new research directions, approaches and AI-based tools benefiting all stakeholders. We also hope that this symposium can encourage the next generation of AI researchers to contribute to this theme.

We invite you to meet members of the award-winning Team Explorer, the CMU DARPA Subterranean Challenge team, and learn more about this groundbreaking competition. Some of the world's top universities have entered the DARPA Subterranean Challenge, developing technologies to map, navigate and search underground environments.

Led by CMU's Robotics Institute faculty members Sebastian Scherer and Matt Travers, as well as OSU's Geoff Hollinger, Team Explorer has earned first and second place positions in the first two rounds of competition. They look forward to this third and final year of the challenge, with the competition featuring all the subdomains of tunnel systems, urban underground and cave networks.
