We Solve Problems.
What kinds of problems do you want to solve?
For many people and
industries, scheduling meetings is a time consuming task. Finding
satisfactory times for new meetings can be very difficult, particularly
when the meetings have many participants or existing meetings need to
be moved. How can intelligent software agents help automate the
process? James Atlas('01, Computer Science) studies
distributed constraint optimization approaches to multi-agent
scheduling in his PhD program at the University of Delaware.
How accurate are sonar counts
of fish passage rates into spawning grounds? The Alaskan Fish and Game
Department wanted to know, and Dr. Barbara Adams ('91, Mathematics) used a mathematical model based on wave propagation theory to answer the question.
Mark Forman ('86, Computer Science)
teaches mathematics and computer skills to women and children at the
Ramabai Mukti Mission, a Christ-centered mission for women and children
in India. When children and adults know math and technology, they can
step out of poverty.
Dr. Jeffrey Morris ('93, Mathematics) is a professor at the
MD Anderson Cancer Center
in Houston, TX. In the article "Biostatistician Makes Waves"
by Mary Brolley, Jeffrey is deemed a rock star among biostatisticians.
His creation of a novel statistical method to capture and interpret
biological data has made researchers all over the world take note.
