Brent Venable, associate professor at Tulane’s Department of Computer Science, now has a grant from the Future of Life Institute, funded by Elon Musk to investigate safety in self-driving cars.
Computer scientists (including Tulane’s Brent Venable) are in the thick of the hot field of artificial intelligence. They touch lives in all kinds of ways from programming ethics into self-driving cars to interpreting how the brain reads sounds.
Wenk and collaborators Yusu Wang from Ohio State University and Brittany Fasy from Montana State University recently received a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. The team uses graphs representing road networks as a framework for analyzing network data.
The Computer Science Department anticipates multiple hires at all levels as it continues to build its new program. This year we are particularly pleased to announce the Yahoo! Founder Chair in systems. The Yahoo! Founder Chair will anchor a new research group in systems, an area where we expect to make multiple hires. We invite interested applicants to contact the department chair, Professor Michael Mislove, at firstname.lastname@example.org about their potential candidacy. We also anticipate hires in machine learning. These positions are open at all ranks. Each of the successful candidates has the possibility of a joint appointment with IHMC. Our goal is to continue to develop a distinguished faculty representing a broad range of areas of computer science. For more information, follow the link above to Open Positions.
Welcome to the Tulane University Computer Science web site. Our department is now in its fifth year, and our innovative computer science program has reached some important milestones:
We are hiring, with a particular focus on filling the Yahoo! Founder Chair. Our interest is to recruit a leading researcher who will be an anchor for our research and whose leadership and collaborations will propel the department to the forefront in the application of computer science to related disciplines. For more details, see the notice to the right on this page.
Our program emphasizes both core computer science and its application to related areas in the sciences and engineering, as well as the health and social sciences. We are committed to becoming a leading department whose faculty and students are recognized nationally and internationally for their research. Our educational goal is to be a leader in training the next generation of computer scientists who work at applying computer science at the interface with related disciplines.
We welcome inquiries about our program - please email me at email@example.com with your questions and comments. Also, please visit this space often for information about the progress of Tulane Computer Science.
