Season 1

In "Engineering Out Loud" season one we explore how researchers at the College of Engineering are using data science to make practical impacts on our lives and the world around us, from converting bird songs to spectograms for more accurate tracking of bird populations, to keeping us safe from threats by pinpointing radiation sources in real time using simulation codes.

In part one, we meet computer science Assistant Professor Stephen Ramsey, who uses computational modeling to look deep into the human genome. His goal: predict who among…

The Monte Carlo method conjures images of a suave gambler beating the house in Monaco. In reality, Monte Carlo methods are computational algorithms that use randomness…

In this episode, we find out how researchers are utilizing unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) to gather data. Dr. Dan Gillins, affiliated faculty member, along with…

The age of Big Data and cloud computing has created greater demand for advanced cryptography. To store data on the cloud safely it must be encrypted; in order to use the…

Xiaoli Fern, associate professor in computer science, explains how she and her team are using machine learning and bird song recordings to help biologists track bird…

What is data science and engineering? To kick off the podcast season on the topic, Tom Dietterich, distinguished professor of computer science, explains what it is, how…
