Live Video Broadcasting using Mobile Devices and Social Networks:
      This project developed a mobile application that can support millions of live video broadcast and maintain all the connections and transmission of videos. The project also leverages social networks such as Facebook to populate the friend list and to broadcast a live video to.

Dr. E. Chan-Tin - No Information Provided

Dr. C. Crick: Dr. Crick received his PhD from Yale University in 2009.  His research agenda is motivated by two overarching, complementary goals: to ground models of developmental psychology and cognitive science in realized, embodied computational systems; and to use models of human cognition and social development to improve robot control and learning, human-robot interaction and artificial intelligence in general.  His current projects include coordination between heterogenous teams of humans and robots, mutual reinforcement learning and skill transfer between humans and robots, human-robot interaction with unmanned aerial systems and explainability for machine learning. 

Dr. R. Etemadpour - No information Provided

Dr. K. M. George: Dr. Georgereceived his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1976, from SUNY at Stony Brook (now Stony Brook University).  His research interest is big data analytics. He is interested in predictions based on known data. Currently, his research focuses on predictions related to topics/events by analyzing social media data. 

Dr. D. Heisterkamp: Dr. Heisterkamp's interests include machine learning, computer vision, computer graphics, computational topology, and big data. 

Dr. N. Park: Dr. Park received his degree from Texas A&M University.  His research is in design for dependability, blockchain-based web3 technology, artificial emotional intelligence. 

Dr. J. Thomas: Dr. Thomas received his PhD from the University of Reading, England.  His research interests include security and privacy, cognitive computing, human health, and big data.
