Computer Science students develop new algorithms to develop ECOC Matrices at the SURP poster session

This summer at SURP, many Computer Science students were able to demonstrate their research accomplishments from the summer. One interesting project was presented by Nicholas Kaegi, who researched an innovative algorithm to more efficiently develop ECOC matrices.

ECOC matrices are large data tables that are made by classifying complex data and are often very time-consuming and expensive to develop. Nicholas's research aims to develop algorithms to make these matrices faster and cheaper.

Steminist Squad Wins 1st Place in 2021 Rohrer New Venture Competition

The 14th Annual Rohrer New Venture Competition took place virtually on Friday, April 23rd, where five finalist companies, Beach Picnic Co., Biodome, Elemeat, Power Gum, and Steminist Squad, pitched their business plans to an industry-leading judge panel. Steminist Squad, a community that aims to educate, empower, and inspire young women to pursue careers in STEM founded by Talia Tomarchio, took home First Place and was awarded $4,000 towards the venture. Steminist Squad provides professional development, a network of like-minded individuals, and a student-centered learning approach to help women feel comfortable in a male-dominated industry.


Computer science students show research of the optimization of bike sharing at the SURP poster session

The SURP Poster Session this past July was a great opportunity for Computer Science students to show off what they had accomplished over the summer. One project from the event, presented by Brian Campana, aimed to optimize city bike sharing solutions through deep reinforcement learning.

Due to concerns about traffic and pollution, more and more people are turning to alternative modes of transportation, namely bicycles. This has led to an ever-growing demand for rental bikes in major US cities like NYC. Bike rental stations often find themselves off balance, unable to meet the local demand. This issue is what Brian’s research aims to address.
