mei-chenlabResearchers look to the human eye to boost computer vision efficiency

Conventional silicon architecture has taken computer vision a long way, but Purdue University researchers are developing an alternative path — taking a cue from nature — that they say is the foundation of an artificial retina. Like our own visual system, the device is geared to sense change, making it more efficient in principle than the computationally demanding digital camera systems used in applications like self-driving cars and autonomous robots.

cheng-nanolaserPurdue laser innovations unleash precision, potential in laser-material interactions

Industrial manufacturers and academic researchers can use patented, innovative laser techniques developed at Purdue University to produce high-tech materials such as semiconductor oxide thin films and metals with high performance under extreme conditions and conduct ultrafine-scale manipulation of physical properties in nanomaterials.

Study: Hair care product chemicals can linger in the air in surprising amounts

The average morning routine for many Americans includes inhaling several milligrams of chemicals that may be harmful to their health, Purdue University researchers have found.

gleich-neuralnetworkThe mind’s eye of a neural network system

In the background of image recognition software that can ID our friends on social media and wildflowers in our yard are neural networks, a type of artificial intelligence inspired by how own our brains process data. While neural networks sprint through data, their architecture makes it difficult to trace the origin of errors that are obvious to humans — like confusing a Converse high-top with an ankle boot — limiting their use in more vital work like health care image analysis or research. A new tool developed at Purdue University makes finding those errors as simple as spotting mountaintops from an airplane.

opendoors-bgriReport ranks Purdue among top 10 universities for international student enrollment

Purdue University is among the top 10 institutions in the U.S. for attracting international students, and climbed one position higher over last year, according to a new national ranking. A report issued Tuesday (Nov. 14) by the Institute of International Education shows Purdue is ranked No. 8 among 4,500-plus public and private universities in the 2023 Open Doors Report.
