Carnegie Mellon and Warwick To Join in Research for Next-Generation Applications
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Two universities — one in the United States and the other in the United Kingdom — have signed a $10 million memo of understanding to undertake joint research and education projects. Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and the University of Warwick, two hours northwest of London, expect to collaborate on subjects related to data acquisition, analysis and processing for next-generation applications.
Warwick has particular expertise in manufacturing and digitally enabled healthcare, as well as cybersecurity, energy storage, materials and surfaces and robotics. Carnegie Mellon specializes in autonomous systems, cybersecurity, digital healthcare, machine learning and sensing and data processing. Activities will focus on cross-departmental and cross-discipline research programs at both institutions, including Warwick's Global Research Priorities and Carnegie Mellon's Brain, Mind & Learning and Traffic 21 initiatives.
The funding will allow each university to support and fund the work of staff and students on joint projects and exchanges and be used to create facilities for online learning and virtual classrooms.
