For police officers, de-escalation training is critical — greatly reducing the use of force and the likelihood that anyone will be hurt during a confrontation. But preparing for a peaceful end can be challenging when officers can find themselves in a variety of scenarios. That’s where Assistant Professor Stephen Ware comes in.
Simone Silvestri, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, is the keynote speaker at the 15th IEEE International Workshop on Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV Networks (WiSARN 2022).
The University of Kentucky has released its Dean's List for the Spring 2022 semester. A total of 8,602 students were recognized for their outstanding academic performance – 910 were from the College of Engineering.
Ware received the award for his project titled “Structured High-Agency Interactive Narratives for Virtual Environments.” The project will award $530,369.00 over five years.
The annual College of Engineering Faculty Awards ceremony was held on April 21 in the Grehan Building. Awards were given in the areas of research, service and graduate studies.
The University of Kentucky will collaborate on a five-year, $10 million National Science Foundation (NSF) initiative, led by the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), to reimagine cyberinfrastructure user support services and delivery to keep pace with the evolving needs of academic scientific researchers.
The program for undergraduate students is all-expenses-paid and lasts for eight weeks. Graduate students and faculty may also apply.
Nathaniel Hudson, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science, has been named a Diverse Rising Graduate Scholar by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, a newsmagazine that focuses on matters of access, diversity, inclusion and opportunity in higher education. Nominations were from all over the country, and only ten graduate students are chosen for the distinction each year.
To make a Dean’s List, a student must earn a grade-point average of 3.6 or higher and must have earned 12 credits or more in that semester, excluding credits earned in pass-fail classes.
Using NSF funding, Brent Seales has gathered a team of experts from UK's College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences to build EduceLab — UK’s vision for next-generation heritage science. The collaborative facility will focus on developing innovative artificial intelligence solutions for the unique challenges presented by cultural heritage objects.
