ASU Students visit to Insight 3th June  2022

Insight Centre for Data Analytics welcomes Arizona State University Graduates to DCU

Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics and Biodesign Europe today welcomed six undergraduate and graduate research students from Arizona State University (ASU) to DCU. These students are part of DCU’s International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) collaboration with the SenSIP Centre at ASU, funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF). This is the first year of this collaboration which will last for 4 years.

The students will work on projects co-supervised between academics in ASU and DCU in the areas of sensors for hemochromatosis, machine learning for activity detection and machine learning or medical imaging applications.

Prof. Noel O'Connor CEO, Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics said,

“I am delighted to welcome these talented ASU researchers to the Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics at DCU. Whilst here the researchers will be exposed to our world class research in data analytics, machine learning and AI helping broaden their education whilst further strengthening the excellent research links we have with ASU.”

Prof. Nicholas Dunne, Professor of Biomaterials Engineering at DCU said,

“The IRES program between ASU SenSIP, SFI Insight and Biodesign Europe signifies an important and exciting global initiative for research students in advancing synergistic sensor and machine learning algorithm design to improve precision in mobile health and wearables. By combining our research expertise, global networks and geographical context of ASU and DCU, we will provide students with an unrivalled international research experience and a unique opportunity to develop critical crosscutting skills within this interdisciplinary research program that will empower students to influence future scientific innovation and in time deliver global impact.”

Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics

The Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics is a joint initiative between researchers at University College Dublin, NUI Galway, University College Cork, and Dublin City University, as well as other partner institutions. It brings together a critical mass of more than 400 researchers from Ireland’s leading ICT centres to develop a new generation of data analytics technologies in a number of key application areas.

Biodesign Europe

Biodesign Europe combines the strengths of Arizona State University and Dublin City University, two leading institutions striving to make much-needed scientific innovations available to advance society. Inspired by nature’s design, particularly at the intersection of engineering, biology and computing, our scientific discoveries have to make the transition from laboratory inventions to usable technologies from which people and society can benefit.
