Waterloo Engineering’s Robohub is highlighted in an episode of the Age of A.I., a documentary series covering the ways artificial intelligence, machine learning and neural networks are changing the world.
Engineering 7’s state-of-the-art robotics research, testing, and training facility is profiled in Episode 6 entitled Will a robot take my job?, one of the world’s most googled questions.
Municipal transit services could increase ridership by co-ordinating with, not competing against, commercial ridesharing companies.
Waterloo Engineering researchers found that transit-ridesharing links in poorly serviced suburban neighbourhoods, where frequent bus service on fixed routes is cost-prohibitive, could help get people out of their cars by making transit more convenient.
A new partnership between the University of Waterloo and Rogers Communications will focus on 5G research in the areas of engineering, network design, applied mathematics and artificial intelligence.
Announced today, the three-year, multimillion dollar partnership on the cutting-edge wireless technology will also involve building a 5G network on campus to test network infrastructure, frequencies and applications.
A personal connection inspired two Waterloo Engineering graduates to develop technology that helps children with cerebral palsy and other medical conditions walk.
Manmeet Maggu (BASc ’13 – mechatronics engineering) and Rahul Udasi (BASc ’14 – mechatronics engineering) put their training to good use by founding Mississauga-based Trexo Robotics, which now has 11 of its exoskeletons in use by families and hospitals.
Fakhri Karray, a Waterloo electrical and computer engineering professor, has been honoured as a 2020 fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his "contributions to intelligent systems."
Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have developed a new screening tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help fact-checkers identify false information online.
The system sets a new benchmark for accuracy in stance detection, a key area in efforts by scientists and engineers around the world to create fully automatic technology capable of detecting fake news.
