Congratulations to 2017 ACM programming contest award winners Brandon Wong, Justin Maddox, and Hunter Soliday!
Dr. Chan-Tin, Dr. Crick, Dr. Etemadpour and Dr. George were awarded a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates Site award
. The REU program in the CS department at OSU is a ten-week summer program for undergraduate students. Participants in the program will contribute to research projects in big data analytics, including, robotics, computer vision, visualization, Twitter data analytics, anonymity, and machine learning.
For more information, see: http://cs.okstate.edu/reu
The department now offers a multi-disciplinary graduate certificate
in Big Data Analytics which can be completed in conjunction with
a Masters Degree in Computer Science.

Integrating disease-correlated ambient information into reliable and privacy-preserving pervasive health monitoring
Many diseases are strongly correlated with and affected by ambient environment, such as temperature and ultraviolet. Some of these diseases like skin cancer are common and can be serious to result in death. Each year more than two million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. Meanwhile, according to CDC WONDER, Oklahoma has the highest mortality rate for melanoma in the U.S. In order to enable better control and treatment of these diseases, it is desirable to integrate correlated ambient information into pervasive health monitoring systems, for both medical research and health-care services. In this project, the team will design and develop the first pervasive health monitoring system that integrates disease-correlated ambient factors. In addition, it will also surpass all existing ones by providing reliable, efficient and privacy-preserving data collection and transmission. At the completion of this project, it not only will greatly enhance the preventive, proactive and patient-centered treatment to many chronic diseases, but also can facilitate the research on discovering new correlations between ambient factors and disease development.
Dr. Crick Awarded NSF National Robotics Grant
Dr. Christopher Crick, in partnership with colleagues in the College of Engineering and the Department of Psychology, has been awarded a $900,000 grant under the auspices of the National Science Foundation's National Robotics Initiative. This project will investigate learning from demonstration and skills transfer between humans and robots, with a primary focus on applications in the construction and farming equipment industry.
