A leading figure in artificial intelligence will talk about machine learning at Rochester Institute of Technology as part of the RIT Data Science Research Group Seminar Series.
Rochester Institute of Technology will hold its first DataFest hackathon this spring, joining a growing list of colleges and universities participating in the American Statistical Association-sponsored event.
Rochester Institute of Technology faculty member Nathan Cahill was named a Rising Researcher by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for his contributions to defense and security research.
A new study by Rochester Institute of Technology that inventories and tracks high concentrations of plastic in the Great Lakes could help inform cleanup efforts and target pollution prevention. Researchers found that nearly 10,000 metric tons-or 22 million pounds-of plastic debris enter the Great Lakes every year from the United States and Canada.
A new center in Rochester Institute of Technology's College of Science is dedicated to advancing techniques that transform raw data into useful information.
The Data and Predictive Analytics Center will focus on collecting, transforming, modeling and visualizing data sets often referred to as "Big Data."
"The ability to mine large amounts of data...
RIT's contributions to the first direct detection of gravitational waves signifies its growing reputation for world-class astrophysics research. Members of the university's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation are part of the international collaboration affiliated with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory, or LIGO.
Two Rochester Institute of Technology professors who are leaders in gravitational-wave astronomy have won more than $1 million in federal funding to further their research. Carlos Lousto and Manuela Campanelli, director of RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation, won separate multi-year grants from the National Science Foundation worth $600,000 and $435,000.
A new study published in Nature presents one of the most complete models of matter in the universe and predicts hundreds of massive black hole mergers each year observable with the second generation of gravitational wave detectors. The model anticipated the massive black holes observed by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory.
Gravitational waves from a second pair of colliding black holes has validated the landmark discovery from earlier this year that confirmed Einstein's general theory of relativity. Rochester Institute of Technology scientists contributed to the initial breakthrough and to the second discovery announced Wednesday by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory.
Rochester Institute of Technology will offer a new Ph.D. in mathematical modeling, beginning in fall 2017. This emerging discipline integrates applied mathematics with scientific computing to model real systems and to solve research problems across the science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, fields and complements finance, medicine and social science research. The program is RIT’s eighth doctoral degree and is housed in the College of Science.
