Jin receives NSF grant for Big Data InitiativeRong Jin, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University, and Alex Hauptmann from Carnegie Mellon University, have received a three-year research grant from the Big Data Initiative program at NSF. The title of the project is "Real Time Observation Analysis for Healthcare Applications via Automatic Hardware Adaptation".
The objective of the project is to develop novel machine learning algorithms that enable real-time video and sensor data analysis on large data streams given limited computational resources. The project will be focused on healthcare as our application domain where real-time video analysis can prevent user-errors in operating medical devices or provide immediate alerts to caregivers about dangerous situations.
