November 2013 - now
The PRISM lecture series is supported by two NSF grants (CNS-0424539 and CNS-0551598) and the funding from the Grove School of Engineering (GSoE) for establishing the Center for Perceptual Robotics, Intelligent Sensors and Machines (PRISM center) at the CCNY. We invite world-renowned researchers and prominent young scholars in the fields of robotics, computer vision, machine learning, distributed systems, human-computer interaction, and wireless communication, to give lectures in the areas of their expertise. The Lecture series has been proven very effective in stimulating students’ interest, fostering collaboration between CCNY and other universities, and increasing the visibility of CCNY research. The PRISM lectures are open to any faculty, researchers, or students within or outside of CCNY and CUNY.
