CS’s Saria presents research at White House Frontiers Conference
Suchi Saria, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, presented her research yesterday at the White House Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh. Hosted by President Barack Obama, the event was co-hosted by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.
The conference highlighted five science and technology “frontiers”—from personal and global to national and interplanetary—that will shape the 21st century and beyond. Computing research and its applications play a central role in all of these innovations.
Saria, who is a member of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, talked during the “National Frontiers” session about her work finding biomarkers that signal the presence of deadly sepsis before it manifests.
The “National Frontiers” section focused on the role of artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and robotics in addressing national problems.
