Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have released a new framework called OpenRooms. Available to the public, this dataset and tools will help users manipulate objects, materials, lighting and other properties in indoor 3D scenes to advance augmented reality and robotics.
The COVID pandemic precipitated a major shift to virtual learning—an unplanned test of whether these technologies can scale effectively. But did they? Researchers in the UC San Diego Department of Computer Science and Engineering wanted to look beyond the anecdotal evidence to better understand where…
An international team of researchers led by computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have identified 163 variable number tandem repeats that actively regulate gene expression. In a Nature Communications paper, the researchers provide new insights into this understudied mechanism
Mutations that occur in certain DNA regions, called tandem repeats, may play a significant role in autism spectrum disorders, according to research led by Melissa Gymrek, assistant professor in the UC San Diego Department of Computer Science and Engineering and School of Medicine.
Researchers at UC San Diego, UCLA, UC Irvine and San Diego State University have been awarded a $1.2 million UC Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives (MRPI) grant to develop an advanced class of mobile telemanipulation robots.
Rajesh Gupta, a professor of computer science and engineering at University of California San Diego, has been awarded the IEEE Computer Society 2019 W. Wallace McDowell Award for his “seminal contributions in design and implementation of microelectronic systems-on-chip and cyberphysical systems.”
