The Center has organized a multi-disciplinary program team to address fundamental research issues in biocomputing while contributing to mid-to long-term research, development, and experimental deployment challenges of analyzing genomic data for diseases and treatment effects. The overall theme of the center is "Advanced Data Mining Algorithms for Applications in Genomics." We will provide the expertise and infrastructure that will merge the research activities of computational and biomedical scientists. The focus of the proposed research is the study of common diseases, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and coronary artery disease in which the underlying causes are multi-factorial. In this new paradigm, we will use advanced computational techniques and approaches to convert raw genomic data into knowledge that will advance the understanding of these common diseases and potentially identify new modalities of treatment. | More »
CEDAR is a research center at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. Growing out of research on pattern recognition, conducted since 1978 in the epartment of Computer Science, CEDAR was made possible with funding from several federal agencies, principally the United States Postal Service. While analysis of paper documents and handwriting recognition continues to be our strength, we have research and software development projects involving diverse digital document types, as described in the CEDAR Research page. | More »
In addition to contributing to the SUNY Homeland Defense initiative at UB, the center will strive to become a leader within SUNY by collaboration with the New York State Office of Science and Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR), Information Institute of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, New York, and other federal agencies. | More »
The Center for Cognitive Science is the representation on the University at Buffalo campus of an academic and private-sector movement, named "cognitive science", that has been expanding over the last two decades both in the U.S. and abroad. The aim of this development is to investigate the nature of cognition, i.e., of intellective processes as exhibited either by the human mind or by computer. Most centrally, cognitive science is the study of how the mind works, both in its conceptual organization and in its computational and neural infrastructure. Accordingly, cognitive science has brought together researchers from a number of traditionally separate disciplines -- primarily, computer science, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, anthropology , and neuroscience -- in order to build a new and unified understanding of cognition that is compounded from the different disciplinary perspectives and that moves beyond them. | More »
The mission of the Center is to manifest the social relevance of computing by promoting its various aspects such as programming, hardware/software integration, system design, and making the community aware about the technology that can enrich their lives. | More »
The mission of the Center is to establish a Unified Biometric Framework that will facilitate the development of next generation biometric systems. This framework will allow evaluation of market needs and constraints in choosing the biometric technologies best suited for a particular application. The Center will enable development of new biometric technologies from proof-of-concept to product-readiness including usability studies and educational outreach to evaluate and mitigate any ethical and legal concerns. It will also foster the development of radically different biometric technologies geared toward developing applications focused on improving comfort, convenience and security for personal and commercial use. | More »
