How artificial intelligence can be turned against us: Prateek Mittal, associate professor of electrical engineering

Prateek Mittal, associate professor of electrical engineering at Princeton University, is here to discuss his team's research into how hackers can use adversarial tactics toward artificial intelligence to take advantage of us and our data.

Students step up summer research, with increased support, amid pandemic’s challenges

For undergraduates in the engineering school, summer often means a chance to apply their learning in new ways, whether conducting field research, working in industry or volunteering abroad. Last summer, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting many of these plans, some students’ research projects took them in unexpected directions.

Tool helps clear biases from computer vision

Researchers at Princeton University have developed a tool that flags potential biases in sets of images used to train artificial intelligence (AI) systems. The work is part of a larger effort to remedy and prevent the biases that have crept into AI systems that influence everything from credit services to courtroom sentencing programs.

Engineering faculty play major role in $115 million quantum science center

Princeton University will have a major leadership role in one of the five new multi-institution centers for the advancement of quantum science research announced by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Tough, timely and team-driven: 50 years of energy research

For a half-century, Princeton faculty members have been tackling critical environmental problems involving energy systems and decarbonization.

Controlling heat opens door for next-generation lighting and displays in perovskite LEDs

A team of Princeton researchers have significantly improved the stability and performance of a promising new materials for brighter, less expensive, more sustainably produced LEDs. The trick was carefully managing the heat generated by the LEDs.

Entrepreneurship in a pandemic: eLab program shows the power of pivots

The six startups participating in this year's eLab Summer Accelerator, as well as the staff of the program itself, scrambled to remake their organizations during the pandemic. Their success suggests a new model for entrepreneurship, says one of the programs mentors.

Princeton Engineering faculty members receive grants for COVID-19 research from C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute

The C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute has awarded $5.4 million to 26 projects to accelerate artificial intelligence research to mitigate COVID-19 and future pandemics. Princeton Engineering faculty recipients include H. Vincent Poor and Mengdi Wang.

Design allows computer engineers to mix systems to boost performance
