Statistical machine learning is at the core of modern-day advances in artificial intelligence, but RIT professor Ernest Fokoué argues that applying it correctly requires equal parts science and art. Fokoué emphasized the human element of statistical machine learning in his primer on the field that graced the cover of a recent edition of Notices of the American Mathematical Society.

During his time in the Science Exploration program, Noah Gubernick participated in an experiment that explored the potential formation of amino acids on ancient Mars which helped him discover his passion for chemistry and experimental design.
Scientists from RIT have discovered a newborn massive planet closer to Earth than any other of similarly young age found to date. The baby giant planet lies only about 330 light years from our solar system. The discovery, published in the Research Notes of the American Astronomical Society, provides researchers an exciting new way to study how gas giants form.
A multidisciplinary research project saw RIT Glass students team up with the Munsell Color Science Laboratory to investigate how color — beyond its tangible application — can be incorporated into their practice.
