Recognizing AI’s misinformation
What does cybersecurity have to do with human recognition of false data? A lot, says MechE’s Conrad Tucker, who teamed up with Challenger Center and RAND to study the link between the two.
Capturing physiological signals with an app and a tap
For someone suffering from an acute illness or a medical emergency, the nearest healthcare facility can be several hours away in some parts of the world. Researchers are working to bridge this gap in patient care with machine learning.
Society, STEM, and AI
Experts converge at Carnegie Mellon University, the birthplace of artificial intelligence, to discuss how AI can transform STEM education and workforce development today, tomorrow, and beyond.
Bridging the physical and digital worlds with human-machine learning
New MechE faculty member Conrad Tucker sees machines as tools that can help to enhance human capabilities.
