Abstract

This project establishes the NSF Industry/University Collaborative Research Center for Big Learning (CBL). The vision is to create intelligence towards intelligence-driven society. Through catalyzing the fusion of diverse expertise from the consortium of faculty members, students, industry partners, and federal agencies, CBL seeks to create state-of-the-art deep learning methodologies and technologies and enable intelligent applications, transforming broad domains, such as business, healthcare, Internet-of-Things, and cybersecurity. This timely initiative creates a unique platform for empowering our next-generation talents with cutting-edge technologies of societal relevance and significance.

This project establishes the NSF Industry/University Collaborative Research Center for Big Learning (CBL) at University of Florida (UF). With substantial breakthroughs in multiple modalities of challenges, such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language understanding, the renaissance of machine intelligence is dawning. The CBL vision is to create intelligence towards intelligence-driven society. The mission is to pioneer novel deep learning algorithms, systems, and applications through unified and coordinated efforts in the CBL consortium. The UF Site will focus on intelligent platforms and applications and closely collaborate with other sites on deep learning algorithms, systems, and applications
