New York University Key Developments
Independence Blue Cross, Inc., New York University and NYU Langone Medical Center Collaborate to Detect Early Diabetes
Apr 29 13
Independence Blue Cross, New York University, and NYU Langone Medical Center have established a collaboration to develop machine-learning algorithms to spot cases of undiagnosed diabetes and to predict pre-diabetes in patients to improve care and lower costs. The work will be supported by a three-year grant from Independence Blue Cross (IBC), the Philadelphia region's leading health insurer. The collaboration is part of NYU's Initiative in Data Science and Statistics, which aims to harness present torrent of data in order to make advances in medicine, science, technology, business, and a range of other fields. Under this collaboration, the researchers will develop methodologies to predict which patients have undiagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes by applying machine-learning algorithms to IBC's medical and pharmacy claims data. Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that involves computers "learning" to extract knowledge from massive data sets and rendering informed analyses and judgments, often predicting outcomes. This collaboration will use machine learning to develop an algorithm, using patients' historical claims data, to predict which patients are at the highest risk of diabetes. All patient data is securely maintained at all times.
New York University to Launch Media and Games Network in Brooklyn's MetroTech Center
Mar 19 13
New York University is launching the Media and Games Network (MAGNET), a facility in Brooklyn's MetroTech Center that will bring together NYU and Polytechnic Institute of NYU faculty whose teaching and research bridge technology and culture. The facility, adjacent to the campuses for NYU-Poly and NYU's Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), is expected to open in the fall of 2013. The new multi-school cluster will co-locate teaching and research programs in games as a creative art form, game design, digital media design, computer science, and engineering - with each program retaining its department affiliation and school identity. It will include undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students from NYU and NYU-Poly. It will serve as the first space at NYU to co-locate faculty from different schools - including NYU-Poly, which will become the school of engineering at NYU in 2014 - creating a shared facility for collaborative teaching and research. MAGNET will be led by the following faculty: R. Luke DuBois, an assistant professor of Integrated Digital Media at NYU-Poly and director of its Brooklyn Experimental Media Center; Christopher Hoadley, an associate professor at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; Katherine Isbister, associate professor jointly appointed between Computer Science & Engineering at NYU-Poly and the NYU Tisch School of the Arts Game Center, and research director of NYU-Poly's Center of Innovation for Technology and Entertainment Game Innovation Lab; Frank Lantz, an associate arts professor at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and director of the NYU Game Center; and Ken Perlin, a professor of computer science in the Media Research Lab at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and director of the Games for Learning Institute. The facility is designed to allow faculty and students working in complementary fields to share resources and forge connections. The new space--designed collaboratively by the partner schools--will enable inter-school and inter-disciplinary collaboration, and will provide flexibility to accommodate current needs, future technology, and the development of new curriculum. Among the site's features are: power and data infrastructure to support gallery-like shows, research studies, and student projects; classrooms equipped with instructional technology; and specialized spaces for audio engineering, motion capture, and digital arts.
