Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Key Developments
IBM Teams with Universities to Advance Research in Cognitive Systems
Oct 2 13
IBM announced a collaborative research initiative with four universities to advance the development and deployment of cognitive computing systems, systems like IBM Watson that can learn, reason and help human experts make complex decisions involving extraordinary volumes of fast-moving data. Faculty at the four schools, Carnegie Mellon University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, will study enabling technologies and methods for building a new class of systems that better enable people to interact with Big Data in what IBM has identified as a new era of computing. The research initiative was announced at a colloquium held at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center attended by nearly 200 leading academics, IBM clients and IBM researchers to begin a dialog that deepens the understanding of cognitive systems and identifies additional areas of research to pursue. These initial university collaborators will help lay the foundation for a Cognitive Systems Institute that IBM envisions will comprise universities, research institutes and IBM clients. The initial research topics for exploration announced are: MIT - How socio-technical tools and applications can boost the collective performance of moderate-sized groups of humans engaged in collaborative tasks such as decision making; RPI - How advances in processing power, data availability, and algorithmic techniques can enable the practical application of a variety of artificial intelligence techniques; CMU - How systems should be architected to support intelligent, natural interaction with all kinds of information in support of complex human tasks; NYU - How deep learning is impacting many areas of science where automated pattern recognition is essential.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Launches New Center of Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems
Mar 27 13
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute announced the launch of its new Center for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems. Dedicated to investigating new ways of infusing sustainability and efficiency into the way businesses send and receive goods, the new $4 million center is funded by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations through its Future Urban Transport research program. The new Center for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems seeks to jumpstart the creation of a framework that engages and fosters collaboration between cities, the private sector, and academia to tackle this universal challenge. Center researchers will seek to develop and identify a holistic, integrated suite of technologies, regulations, and incentives to help shape a new paradigm of freight transportation systems that are more cost efficient, more energy efficient, and less disruptive to commuter traffic in urban centers.
