Turaga’s lab to improve computer reliability in identifying objects in images



The director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering at Arizona State University has won a million-dollar federal grant to improve the way that computers discern images for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Pavan Turaga, who is a professor in both the School of Arts, Media and Engineering and the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, received an 18-month AI-Explorations grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency earlier this month.

Turaga’s ASU lab, Geometric Media Lab, has been working on fusing different methods, including mathematical, physical and data-driven, to better process and understand imaging data.
