Typically an animal needs to be sedated and shaved before a veterinarian can take its vital signs. Cornell professor Edwin Kan has designed a device that uses radio waves to measure heartbeat and...Read more about No-touch sensor measures vital signs of small animals
“National Science Foundation Early Career Award”
Assistant Professor Aaron Wagner has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award for his proposal “A New Look at the Fundamental Limits of Lossy Network Compression.”
Assistant Professor Aaron Wagner has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award for his proposal “A New Look at the Fundamental Limits of Lossy Network Compression.” The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is NSF's most prestigious award in support of the early career-development activities of teacher-scholars.
Lossy compression plays a key role in our information economy. By far, most of the information that we generate as a society represents pictures, sounds, and videos, and for this kind of data, lossy compression yields a tremendous reduction in transmission and storage requirements. The aim of Prof. Wagner's project is to understand the fundamental limits of lossy compression, especially in the context of networks, which dominate today's communication infrastructure.
