08/12/2021: I3T Lab is part of the newly NSF-funded AI Institute for Edge Computing Leveraging Next Generation Networks (ATHENA). We will be working on ATHENA’s Services and Applications: next-generation AI-powered mobile augmented reality in particular, and intelligent pervasive next-generation IoT platforms broadly.

08/06/2021: Tim Scargill will present his research vision at the 2021 IEEE ISMAR Doctoral Consortium. [ Paper PDF ]

07/15/2021: Tim Scargill gave an invited talk titled “Context-Aware Markerless Augmented Reality for Shared Educational Spaces” at the Duke Pratt School of Engineering REU for Meeting the Grand Challenges seminar.

07/01/2021: Two new journal papers are published by the lab. Jose’s and Guohao’s work on new data augmentation techniques for kinetic energy harvesting signals will appear in the IEEE Internet of Things Journal [ Paper PDF ].  New paper on collaborative image recognition in the presence of image distortions will appear in the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks.

04/18/2021: The lab is welcoming three Pratt School of Engineering REU for Meeting Grand Challenges of Engineering Fellows over the summer, Maria Christenbury (Clemson University), Megan Mott (UNC Chapel Hill), and Emily Eisele (Widener University).  Following the COVID-19-related cancellations of last year’s REU programs, it is phenomenal to be able to welcome this year’s Fellows in the lab.

03/31/2021: We are excited for lab alumna Cyan Deveaux who will be joining Stanford PhD program and has received two fellowships for her studies, a Stanford Graduate Fellowship and an EDGE Fellowship. Congratulations Cyan!

02/16/2021: Tim’s and Shreya’s work on predicting hologram stability in a given environment appeared as a demo at ACM HotMobile 2021 [ Demo PDF ] [ Video of the demo ]

11/18/2020: Guohao presented our work on gaze-based cognitive context sensing at ACM SenSys (20.6% acceptance rate). [ Paper PDF ] [ Dataset and codebase ] [ Video of the talk ]

11/04/2020: Congratulations to Dr. Guohao Lan, a current postdoctoral associate in the lab, who will be joining TU Delft as an Assistant Professor next year. It has been wonderful to work with Guohao and we wish him all the best in this exciting new role.
