Artificial intelligence in all its varied forms is rapidly accelerating, transforming our everyday lives and providing a powerful tool for scientific research. But what does it all mean and what does the future hold? Six UC San Diego experts share their insights.
Technology & Engineering
The U.S. Department of Defense has announced that it has awarded $27 million for a USC-led Microelectronics Commons project. UC San Diego is a key member of this coalition of research and industry organizations with the power to accelerate development and manufacturing of microelectronics in the US.
Seven Japanese startups spent two weeks at UC San Diego’s Institute for the Global Entrepreneur this fall learning about the startup market in the United States as part of the first cohort of the Beyond JAPAN program.
As a neurodiverse student, Naba Rizvi often felt marginalized and isolated. Today, her doctoral research at UC San Diego’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering focuses on the design of artificial intelligence (AI) apps for autistic users and has gained national attention.
Rommie Amaro, professor of molecular biology at UC San Diego, and her team use computers to investigate biological systems. Last year, their atomic-level computational model of the H1N1 influenza virus revealed vulnerabilities that could lead to more effective and longer-lasting flu vaccines.
UC San Diego engineers have developed modular nanoparticles that can be easily customized to target different biological entities such as tumors, viruses or toxins. The nanoparticles can be tailored for various applications, ranging from targeted drug delivery to neutralizing biological agents.
