Imaging Science Seminar
Data Analytics and System Optimization in Sustainability and Imaging Science
Dr. Guiping Hu
Department of Sustainability
Golisano Institute for Sustainability, RIT
You may attend this lecture in person at 1125 Carlson Building or virtually via Zoom.
Guiping Hu, Ph.D, head of the Department of Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology, will discuss her research in system design and decision support tool development in relation to sustainability and imaging science. Machine learning methods and analytics tools used in these applications will also be presented, as well as challenges and opportunities for future research.
Sustainability requires harmonic interactions among human, social, economic, and environmental systems, which is challenging yet inevitable for humanity to survive and thrive in the long term. Meanwhile, imaging science has advanced the collection and processing of digital images. As a pivotal approach to addressing challenges in achieving sustainability, system analysis, design, and optimization play an increasingly important role, especially as the systems become ever diverse and dynamic. As large volumes of data, become available and accessible, especially with the plethora of images, machine learning and data analytics are essential for the integration and implementation of decision support tools. In this seminar, Dr. Hu will discuss her research in system design and decision support tool development in relation to sustainability and imaging science. Multiple applications will be introduced, including sustainable supply chain design and sustainable agriculture. Machine learning methods and analytics tools used in these applications will also be presented. Finally, challenges and opportunities for future research in this area will be discussed, which are motivated by the gap between systems analytics theory and applications.
