Kno.e.sis (http://knoesis.org) is a world-class research center that uses semantic, cognitive, and perceptual computing for gathering insights from physical/IoT, cyber/Web, and social and enterprise (e.g., clinical) big data. We innovate and employ semantic web, machine learning, NLP/IR, data mining, network science and highly scalable computing techniques. Our highly interdisciplinary research impacts health and clinical applications, biomedical and translational research, epidemiology, cognitive science, social good, policy, development, etc. A majority of our $12+ million in active funds come from the NSF and NIH. In this talk, I will provide an overview of some of our major research projects.
Kno.e.sis is highly successful in its primary mission of exceptional student outcomes: our students have exceptional publication and real-world impact and our PhDs compete with their counterparts from top 10 schools for initial jobs in research universities, top industry research labs, and highly competitive companies. A key reason for Kno.e.sis' success is its unique work culture involving teamwork to solve complex problems. Practically all our work involves real-world challenges, real-world data, interdisciplinary collaborators, path-breaking research to solve challenges, real-world deployments, real-world use, and measurable real-world impact.
In this talk, I will also seek to discuss our choice of research topics and our unique ecosystem that prepares our students for exceptional careers.
