Industrial Partnerships

The department offers opportunities to interact on a number of levels with internationally respected scientists in such vital areas as:

artificial intelligence
computational methods for mechanical design and simulation
computational molecular biology
digital libraries
distributed computing and fault tolerance
formal specification and verification methodologies
information technology
natural language, document classification and retrieval
networking databases
parallel computing
programming languages
programming logics
remote collaboration technologies
scientific and numerical computing
supercomputing (through affiliation)
theoretical computer science
vision and image interpretation

Industrial partners are invited to participate directly in the technology development process, through on-campus representation, visits, and consulting arrangements. Additional opportunities include access to technical reports, colloquia, seminars, the department's annual report, and resumes submitted by BA, BS, MEng, and Ph.D. candidates expecting to graduate.

Department of Computer Science faculty and researchers continue to collaborate with industrial partners. AT&T, GTE, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, and Xerox continued their support this year. GTE renewed its support of the department's initiative in information technology with a five-year grant to support new faculty hires in this strategic area. Lockheed Martin provided support to the undergraduate and Ph.D. programs. Xerox continued its support of Dan Huttenlocher's document imaging initiative. Intel provided major funding to the department for research and instruction. Gifts included $145,000 to equip a new undergraduate workstation lab, $20,000 to support Johannes Gehrke's research on data mining, and fellowship support to Ph.D. student Lynette Millett.

Microsoft continued its generous support for research, instruction, and general support. Gifts included $50,000 to Ramin Zabih's research on automating visual tasks, $75,000 each to Werner Vogels for his research on cluster computing and to Philippe Bonnet for his Predator project, funding and equipment to support Windows migration efforts, and extensive donations of Microsoft software, books, and hardware.

Intel and Microsoft supported a strategic research area in the Computing and Information Science (CIS) initiative. The Information Intensive Systems group led by Bill Arms and Geri Gay received $375,000 from Intel and $32,000 from Microsoft to support research in nomadic computing and digital libraries. Hewlett Packard provided equipment to establish a new undergraduate lab to support the expanding graphics and visualization curriculum.
