CU Boulder part of new NASA institute on space habitat design

May 2, 2019

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU Boulder is part of a new NASA funded Space Technology Research Institute that will advance space habitat designs using resilient and autonomous systems. The work is part of a larger effort to prepare for a time when astronauts will venture further into space, out of low-Earth orbit and on to the Moon, Mars and beyond.

Computer searching for information

Researchers using DARPA grant to dig out of deluge of data

April 1, 2019

U.S. intelligence agencies take in a tremendous amount of data every single day. Some of the data is conflicting. Other bits are unrelated. Their job is to comb through it all for details that, when added together, create a clear image of what is actually happening. It’s a huge effort that CU Boulder researchers are attempting to make easier through artificial intelligence and natural language processing.
