Associate Professor Qi Zhang is leading the group, which has developed a new way of compressing data. The new grant will provide a framework for an end-to-end solution that could have a major impact on the so-called data tsunami, caused by exponential growth in IoT devices.

Fast & furious: Autonomous drone racing raises the bar for artificial intelligence

Today, drones can autonomously carry out various tasks with zero or minimum involvement by human operators. However, they need to fly as slow as possible to sense their environment and plan future actions. But what if drones need to fly fast like in a manual drone race where speed, agility, and performance are paramount? A team of researchers from…
