AICoE Co-Director Kathy McCoy Spoke at Tech Forum about the Demand of AI Education

Mar 24, 2023

As an industry itself, AI is a hot one, used in industries including — but far from limited to — fashion design, energy, manufacturing, healthcare, finance and media. At the University of Delaware, where AI research and development includes 20 departments, seven colleges and 48 faculty members, the number of students in AI-related computer science majors increased from 296 in the fall of 2016 to 791 in the fall of 2022, according to Kathy McCoy, professor and chair of Computer and Information Science at UD.

AICOE Affiliated Faculty Ioannis Poulakakis is Developing a Treadmill to Assess Robot Locomotion

May 05, 2022

Poulakakis, along with Department of Mechanical Engineering Professors Panos Artemiadis, Guoquan (Paul) Huang and Bert Tanner are spearheading the project, which will combine a nearly 5-foot-tall robot and a novel treadmill system that will allow researchers to test the robot’s ability to adjust to dynamic changes in the environment. 


Ag-Inspired Engineering

Dec 08, 2021

How engineering principles support plant science. When Tropical Storm Isaias pummeled the East Coast in summer 2020, it created life-threatening tornadoes and weather conditions that ruined homes and flattened farm fields across Delaware. But in Newark, in a small field planted with different varieties of corn, one professor noticed that not all of the plants had the same damage.


Robot Research Honored

Feb 26, 2021

Fabrizio Sergi, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Delaware, has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award to support fundamental research in motor control that could in the future improve practices in neurorehabilitation for individuals with motor impairment.

Smarter Models, Smarter Choices

Oct 19, 2020

UD’s Vlachos and Lansford develop high confidence approach for artifical intelligence-based models. They call it artificial intelligence — not because the intelligence is somehow fake. It’s real intelligence, but it’s still made by humans. That means AI — a power tool that can add speed, efficiency, insight and accuracy to a researcher’s work — has many limitations.
