Four Clemson University researchers are working with Prisma Health physicians and staff to help create solutions to COVID-19 pandemic questions. These questions include how to monitor patients from home after discharge, how to efficiently sanitize N95 masks for reuse, how to best develop antiviral therapeutics and how to best develop quick diagnostic tests. These researchers […]
It would take a human being years to read tens of thousands of scholarly articles, but an artificial intelligence system that can do it in a matter of minutes is about to go to work in the fight against COVID-19. Ilya Safro, an associate professor of computer science at Clemson University, said that his team […]
To the Clemson Community: These are challenging times unlike anything I have seen in more than 30 years of working in higher education. I know many of you are concerned about your health, and the health of your loved ones – we are, too. In fact, every decision we have made over the past few […]
Artificial intelligence would detect hate speech and offensive words on social media and then encourage users to reconsider their posts as part of a new system that gives two Daniel High School students a chance to work alongside Clemson University researchers. The system, HateDefender, is in its early stages, but the idea is to prevent […]
Clemson University researchers from the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS), the College of Engineering, Computing and Applies Sciences (CECAS) and College of Science (COS) have been awarded 14 seed grants from the Seed Grant Program at Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health. The grants will fund projects on a variety of […]
Two Ph.D. students are winning fellowships from the social media company Facebook, an honor that goes to fewer than 2 percent of applicants, supports research for up to two academic years and helps raise Clemson University’s profile in Silicon Valley. Moses Namara and Samaneh Zamanifard were among 36 Ph.D. candidates from 16 universities selected this […]
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced seven researchers will be awarded fiscal year 2020 Technology Maturation Fund grants to support them as they embark on the crucial last stage needed to move their technology from innovation to commercialization.
It’s always a special time when some of South Carolina’s brightest minds gather in one place, but an Oct. 4 ceremony just off Lake Hartwell was especially notable for the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Eight faculty members received awards and several others were recognized for tenure, promotions and other achievements. […]
Students from throughout the Southeast are converging on Clemson University this Saturday for a competition that will test their cybersecurity skills and help prepare them to protect sensitive data from hackers. At least eight teams are planning to participate in Clemson University-Capture The Flag.
The 2019-20 academic year began on a high note on Aug. 19, as Amy Apon and Mark Johnson received their endowed chair medallions in Littlejohn Coliseum’s Burton Gallery. Apon is the C. Tycho Howle Director of the School of Computing, and Johnson is the Thomas F. Hash ‘69 SmartState Endowed Chair in Sustainable Development. Endowed […]
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
Hongxin Hu of Clemson University is developing new security functions to protect computer networks from attacks, as each day brings another round of news about hackers exposing sensitive data. The new security functions include a virtual intrusion detection system that would detect attacks and a virtual firewall system that would repel them. A $500,000 CAREER […]
Imagine if the Clemson Tigers played for national championships in football and basketball in the same week, or maybe even the same day. That’s what the excitement level will be like next week for several Clemson University students who plan to blast a rocket about 30,000 feet above the New Mexico desert while closely watching a separate launch on the Virginia coast that will shoot their robotic tentacle into space.
A fast-growing Clemson University school that is turning students into the tech leaders and entrepreneurs of the future will soon have a new director who wants to provide them new opportunities by expanding partnerships with industry worldwide. Amy Apon on July 1 will become the new C. Tycho Howle Director of the School of Computing. Apon has been on the school’s faculty for eight years, serving as the chair of the Division of Computer Science.
