Scientists Revolutionize Wireless Communication With Three-Dimensional Processors

Researchers from the University of Florida's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have developed a three-dimensional processor for wireless communication that utilizes the power of semiconductor technology. Wireless communication has typically relied on planar processors, which are only able to operate within a certain part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Farahmandi Works To Optimize Chip Lifecycle Management

Dr. Farimah Farahmandi, assistant professor in the UF Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, recently received funding for her project "Optimized System Design for Assurance and Life-cycle Management (SaLEM)." The project will develop a sustainable and security-aware life-cycle management solution.

Artificial Intelligence Can Combat Deepfakes, Cybercrimes and Snooping

University of Florida researcher Damon Woodard is using artificial intelligence methods to develop algorithms that can detect deepfakes — images, text, video and audio that purports to be real but isn’t. These algorithms, Woodard says, are better at detecting deepfakes than humans.

Battling COVID-19 With Smart Wearables

Dr. Swarup Bhunia, director and the Semmoto Endowed Professor at University of Florida's Electric and Computer Engineering Department, and Dr. My T. Thai, associate director and UF's Research Foundation professor at the Computer and Information Science Engineering Department, share the different Covid-19 innovations coming out of the Warren B. Nelms Institute for the Connected World​.
