Submitted on Monday, 03/07/2023

Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics, DCU today held an event to mark the end of the 2nd year of DCU’s International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) project in collaboration with the Sensor Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Centre at ASU. The project brings six undergraduate and graduate research students from Arizona State University (ASU) to DCU and is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Professor Tomas Ward, Director, Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics at DCU said: 

“We are delighted to commemorate the strategic partnership between ASU and DCU, which has spanned nearly two decades. This year marks the second iteration of the IRES programme, bringing six talented ASU students to DCU. It was a pleasure to showcase their remarkable research accomplishments during the insightful poster session. Collaborative initiatives like these fuel innovation and foster meaningful exchanges that propel our institutions towards new frontiers.”

ASU and DCU have been collaborating for almost 20 years, developing international cooperation in education, research and economic development. The aim of the IRES project is to embed students in cutting edge research that will provide integrated hardware and algorithm/software solutions for the next generation of wearables and mobile health monitoring technologies.  

This Interdisciplinary international program will address challenges at the overlap of sensor design, big data analytics, signal processing (SP), and Machine Learning. The students spend 6 weeks at DCU where they work on projects co-supervised between academics in ASU and DCU in the areas of sensors, machine learning for activity detection and machine learning or medical imaging applications.
