LAS Announces 2023 Collaborators

Sharon Joines

Twenty faculty from 12 universities and seven companies will conduct LAS research projects this year.

The Laboratory for Analytic Sciences at NC State University will provide research funding to 20 faculty collaborators representing 12 academic institutions as well as seven industry organizations. Collaborators will conduct research projects in partnership with LAS staff. Collaborators are selected by NC State through the annual white paper proposal process.

“This year’s projects continue to align with LAS’s strategic research initiatives in human-machine teaming, content triage and operationalizing machine learning,” says Matthew Schmidt, director of programs at LAS. “These initiatives are not mutually exclusive, and many 2023 projects will address two or more research initiatives.”

Specifically for 2023, LAS selected collaborators who will focus on the following technical areas: machine learning, video analysis, audio/speech analysis, cybersecurity, information science, human-computer interaction (HCI), user experience (UX) design, and cognitive science.

The 2023 LAS collaborators are:

*New LAS collaborators for 2023

Collaborators are working with LAS staff to define each project’s goals and objectives for the year and how they align with LAS’s research initiatives. LAS will also conduct several student-led projects, including NC State senior design projects. Research project results will be presented at LAS’s annual Research Symposium in December.
