Advanced Technology Innovation Center (ATIC)
ASU-Mayo Clinic Imaging Informatics and Analytics Laboratory (AMIIAL)
The ASU-Mayo Clinic Imaging Informatics and Analytics Laboratory (AMIIAL) is a collaborative effort between the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at ASU and the Department of Radiology at Mayo Clinic Arizona. Our goal is to improve patient care by analyzing and managing information in radiology images and databases. We achieve this goal by developing novel informatics, statistics & machine learning, and systems engineering approaches.
Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing (CUbiC)
The Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing (CUbiC) at Arizona State University is an interdisciplinary research center focused on cutting edge research targeting a variety of applications.
Most ubiquitous computing research takes a technology-centric view in solving real-world problems. It is our belief that a balanced technology and problem-centric view is required in tackling challenging application domains. By targeting applications that require ubiquitous computing solutions, in contrast to applications with a ubiquitous computing flavor, brings out the underlying challenges that need to be addressed. In keeping with this spirit, we have chosen to serve the needs of physically-challenged individuals by empowering them with ubiquitous and pervasive computing technologies to enrich their lives.
Motivated by this approach, we have assembled focus groups of blind and hearing-impaired individuals, researchers involved in disability studies and mobility instructors to bring out the real needs in this application.
Center for Embedded Systems (CES)
The Center for Embedded Systems (CES) was established in 2001 as an industry/university partnership dedicated to developing a globally-recognized center for embedded computing system technologies. In March 2009, CES achieved the designation of National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center.
Objects ranging from an iPod to an automobile use advanced computer technology commonly concealed by a metallic or decorative cover. Advanced technology of this nature usually operates through an embedded computer system. The Center for Embedded Systems researches the inner workings of embedded computer systems. A simplified explanation of embedded systems is that they are special purpose computer systems designed to perform one or a few dedicated functions and are part of a complete device including hardware and mechanical parts. Although most people do not realize it, they use some form of embedded systems in their daily interactions at work and at home.
Center for Engineering Logistics and Distribution (CELDi)
CELDi is an applied research and education consortium consisting of nine major research universities, more than 30 member organizations from commercial, military and government sectors of the economy, and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The ASU center provides an international component to the consortium through its transborder studies.
CELDi’s mission is to enable member organizations to achieve logistics and distribution excellence by delivering meaningful, innovative and implementable solutions that provide a return on investment. CELDi partnerships achieve logistics and distribution excellence by solving real problems that achieve bottom-line impact, graduating students with real-world project experience, producing generalized, cutting-edge research, and sharing research results amongst member organizations to leverage intellectual and monetary capital.
Information Assurance Center (IAC)
Information systems through various types of networks have been indispensable for modern societies in the information age. To use and process information with great confidence, both the information systems and networks as well as the information must be trustworthy. For this objective, users need not only dependable and secure information systems and networks, but effective mechanisms to ensure integrity and quality.
The IAC is a multidisciplinary center focusing on both research and educational activities to address the broad issues of developing trustworthy information systems (TIS) and ensuring the quality of information being stored, processed and transmitted by information systems and networks. Current research activities involve foundational, network, system and application aspects of developing and testing TIS; steganography; facial recognition, video surveillance, multimedia data processing, dynamic and deterministic Quality of Service management; data mining for security, privacy in data management; and situation-awareness.
Partnership for Research in Spatial Modeling (PRISM)
PRISM is the focal point at Arizona State University for interdisciplinary research in modeling and visualization to permit intelligent analysis and create spatial and dynamic knowledge.
The Partnership for Research in Spatial Modeling (PRISM) has a history of collaborative partnerships that center around how to develop, capture, model, analyze and interact with three-dimensional data. Researchers work with large, complex data sets from scanning devices that include 3D laser scanners, optical facial scanners and probe microscopes. 3D algorithms and software created by PRISM researchers allow users to accurately model and automatically segment, extract, measure and analyze features of interest to discipline researchers.
The computer-aided geometric design (CAGD) modeling and analytic tools developed at PRISM apply to surfaces and volumes within complex data sets regardless of scale.
