Anshumali Shrivastava, assistant professor of computer science, of statistics, and of electrical and computer engineering, is one of 82 early-career engineers selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s 25th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium.
The symposium, to be held Sept. 25-27 in North Charleston, S.C., will gather engineers, ages 30 to 45, who are nominated by colleagues in industry, academia and government.
Symposium topics include Advanced Manufacturing in the Age of Digital Transformation, Engineering the Genome, Self-Driving Cars: Technology and Ethics, and Blockchain Technology.
“I’ll get a chance to understand these areas, their future, and associated computational bottlenecks. That will help me identify the right application domain where I can show the impact of my past research on resource-frugal deep learning algorithms,” he said.
Shrivastava specializes in creating clever algorithmic strategies that enable faster, more scalable computations in big data and machine-learning applications.
