Schnieders' Need for Speed

Michael J. Schnieders’ team uses computational accelerators to discover solutions to health problems associated with an aging population. “It once took a year on 20 compute nodes to optimize all of the protein structures in the Deafness Variation Database for analysis of specific phenome-genome combinations that led to hereditary hearing loss; now it's accomplished in one week using 10 Graphics Processing Units, or GPUs,” he said.

The Future of Autonomous Transportation

“Ethics, legal and safety considerations will govern the progress of autonomous transportation,” said UI's Daniel McGehee who predicts that full automation is decades away from ubiquity. “By 2040, ~ 90 percent of cars on the road will have today’s production advanced driver assistance system technology. It is hard to predict when fully autonomous cars will be able to operate in all conditions,” he added.

Applications for AI in Geosciences

“When your grandmother can command complex data on affordable, intelligent systems that help her decide when to take shelter or flee to avoid a destructive storm, we begin to realize how smart devices improve personal safety and quality of life for the most vulnerable members of society,” said UI3 Cluster Faculty Member Ibrahim Demir (Civil & Environmental Engineering; Electrical & Computer Engineering).
