  • Fu Wins $483,511 Socio-Cultural Media Sharing Grant from Air Force
    Yun (Raymond) Fu, PI, and Co-I Michael Stefanone (UB Department of Communication) will receive a new award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). In total, they will receive about $483,511 for three years.

    The project is Socio-Cultural Media Sharing as Conversations: Sensing and Modeling Behavior in Response to Environmental Changes. The goal is to create a new Social Media Ecosystem for social network analysis, especially when visual media (images, videos, etc.) sharing is used as a conversation means across different cultures.

    Fu is excited about this award because it is a totally new field that he is exploring.

  • Fu Wins $360K Intelligence Community PostDoc Fellowship
    CSE Assistant Professor Raymond Fu will receive a $360K IC PostDoc Fellowship Award to support his research titled, “Geolocation on Motion Imagery with Alternative Socio-Behavioral Context”. (September 1, 2011)
  • Fu Wins $1.2M NSF Grant
    CSE Assistant Professor Raymond Fu has been awarded a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

    This project, entitled "CPS:Medium:Quantitative Visual Sensing of Dynamic Behaviors for Home-based Progressive Rehabilitation," will last for four years. Fu's group will seek to develop a comprehensive theoretical and experimental cyber-physical framework with the intent to advance intelligent human-environment interaction capabilities in synergistic combinations of computer vision (cyber) and robotic (physical) systems. They will concretize this framework by examining individualized rehabilitation with an intelligent, articulated, and adjustable lower limb orthotic brace used to manage a major public health issue, Knee Osteoarthritis.

    This is a joint project by CSE, ENS, and MAE. The grant will be used to support 1 postdoc and 3 students. Fu's two Co-PI's are Dan K. Ramsey from Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences (ENS), and Venkat Krovi from Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE).
