Edwin Marcial (BS, ECE ’92) captures drives and tech talks for his Techrides website. He has interviewed Dean Cammy Abernathy as well as leaders from Delta, Virgin Galactic, and Intercontinental Exchange, among other Fortune 500s, about what makes their companies successful.
University of Florida is partnering on a $26 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to develop new technologies and systems that will help farmers produce more food with less water and energy.
Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research has announced a collaboration with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) on a program called Automated Implementation of Secure Silicon (AISS). The grant has the broad goal of making scalable on-chip security pervasive throughout industry and military applications.
The joint center aims to harness the expertise of both FICS Research and Edaptive Computing to build a comprehensive set of technologies that can be used by designers and security engineers to ensure the security and trust of microelectronics.
The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida is pleased to announce that six faculty members have received National Science Foundation (NSF) Early CAREER Awards in 2020.
UF engineers and neuroscientists will test the effectiveness of a new motion-activated type of deep brain stimulation (DBS) aimed at improving treatment for patients with severe essential tremor, a neurological disorder that causes involuntary shaking and usually worsens over time.
Chris Malachowsky, an alumnus of UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, was selected for inventing the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) that transformed the visual computing industry by creating a consumer-oriented 3D graphics market. Under Malachowsky’s leadership, NVIDIA has evolved the GPU into a computer brain that intersects virtual reality, high performance computing and artificial intelligence. He holds 35 U.S. patents. …
The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida and The Ohio State University College of Engineering are collaborating as a close-knit team in two Centers of Excellence sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and Nimbis Inc., a developer of collaborative cloud communities. Their dual goals are to advance the area of hardware-enabled cybersecurity through innovation and development of new Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) domain security and to provide a comprehensive workforce training and education program in areas related to microelectronics design and security.
