Alina Chu (undergrad, computer science major) completed her 2019 SPACT REU program under the supervision of KC Santosh (department of computer science) and presented her work at the 2019 South Dakota Undergraduate Research Symposium, July 29–30.

In KC’s PAMI research lab, her project was titled “fingerprint image analysis for security and counterfeiting purposes”.


(May 23, 2019):
Mrinal K Dhar and Haidong Wang (grad students, Department of Computer Science) presented their work titled deep imaging for foreign object detection in chest radiograph, at the Mayo Clinic AI symposium (May 23).

In Fall 2018, the project received an award from the graduate school: graduate research and creativity scholarship grant.


(May 13, 2019) Haidong (one of my grad. students) presented his work at the Midwest Statistical Machine Learning Colloqium.

His presentation was Deep features for human face re-identification. I found he was enjoying and I enjoy #mentorship.

(May 04, 2019) The only way to release #stress is to run and that does not #bother anybody. It is, in fact, a kind of #meditation. Believe me it works #perfect.


Thanks to University of Minnesota for such a great invitation for a talk (May 02, 2019). Special thanks to Peter Dolan!

The talk was about “smart healthcare: what computer scientists can do?” This talk was focused on #healthcare #ai #machinelearning #imageanalysis #automation #population #screening and #diagnosis


It’s been always exciting to somehow #motivate #juniors, who have not yet decided where to go and what to select for their career.

Don’t forget, it is #challenging to motivate them (in STEM education), since they are #smarter than us and we we know they look #small #physically.


Visiting the NSF is a great experience. Big people, big name!
