In Quanta Magazine, iiD's Ingrid Daubechies writes that machine learning works spectacularly well, but mathematicians aren’t quite sure why.
iiD's Martin Brooke has teamed with Tommy DeFrantz from the Department of African and African American Studies and Tyler Walters—a former lead dancer of the Joffrey Ballet who teaches in the Dance program at Duke—for a grant from the Center for Instructional Technology. Together they taught an engineering class called Performance and Technology.
Martin Brooke talks about his work the theoretical and historical implications of using technology in performance and how data-intensive live processing be used to create live art works that transform our awareness of the space around us.
In early November, iiD got together with the Duke Social Science Reseach Initiative and the Duke Energy Initiative to celebrate recent achievements and give thanks for support.
We wanted to thank the Ahmadieh family for their support of programs and partnerships across Duke.
We also wanted to note the dozen Duke-authored papers accepted for presentation at the 29th annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems.
Our autism app received more praise—this time for the collaborative effort that made it happen. Each year, Duke recognizes university and health system employees as Teamwork award winners for contributions to Duke and Durham. Bringing together 25 faculty and staff from across 11 schools and departments, the iiD-led app project is the epitome of interdisciplinary teamwork.
Everybody's talking about a new app developed by a team co-led by iiD’s Helen Egger and Guillermo Sapiro. Created in partnership with Apple, the free iOS app aims to learn more about autism in young children living around the world last week. Check out what news organizations are saying:
A team of researchers and software developers from Duke University and the Duke Medical Center—co-led by iiD’s Helen Egger and Guillermo Sapiro—has introduced a free iOS app to learn more about autism in young children living around the world.
People are excited about Platypus, the Photoshop plug-in tool that uses mathematical algorithms to allow art conservators to better analyze paintings using X-ray images. The software was developed by iiD faculty Ingrid Daubechies (Mathematics Department and Electrical and Computer Engineering Department) and David Dunson (Statistics Department) in partnership with the North Carolina Museum of Art.
