Computer Science at OSU
The Computing and Information Sciences (CIS) department was established in 1969 by Dr. James Boggs, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Oklahoma State University. Computing and Information Sciences was unique for having an M S. program before it had a department or a baccalaureate degree. The Regents approved the M.S. degree in 1968, the B.S. in 1977, and the Ph.D in 1981.
In 1986, the name of the department was changed to “Computer Science Department”, and to the current name “Department of Computer Science” in 2018 by faculty votes.

Sathyanarayanan Aakur is broadly interested in the intersection of computer vision, natural language processing and psychology. His aim is to build intelligent agents that understand the visual world beyond recognition (labels) or captions (sentences) without the need for explicit human supervision. This entails developing approaches such as self-supervised predictive learning for video event segmentation, common sense reasoning for ground perception and prior knowledge, and generative modeling for building knowledge .
Arunkumar Bagavathi focuses on designing deep-learning frameworks to learn multiple activities in social media to enhance network-based machine learning tasks such as prediction, forecasting, and clustering. His work also leverages the use of cloud tools to frame a collection of scalable data agnostic models to glean actionable recommendations from massive data sources. For example, his multiplex model can identify user communities in the social media from their various activities and his action-mining model can impart personalized recommendations for hospitals to handle patients to improve care and reduce readmission rates.
