DATA to Decision: Predicting, Assessing, and
Responding to Today's Challenges.
Follow the links below to see powerpoint slides and video presentations
by our 10 speakers at the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering 22nd
Annual Research Review held February 28, 2003.
The theme of this year's Review was Data to Decision. From DNA
databases to video and sensor networks, engineers increasingly have
a goldmine of new types of data at their fingertips. The process
of analyzing and extracting meaningful information from the data
promises to revolutionize traditional fields of engineering. Bioengineers
are devising ways to predict and control cellular function, structural
engineers are using remote sensor data to monitor the health of
lifeline structures, computer scientists can predict credit card
fraud or provide early warning of Internet attacks, and electrical
engineers are beginning to use video monitoring to help respond
to crisis situations. Research Review speakers discussed new networking
infrastructure and new systems for analyzing data and for putting
the data to use in predicting, assessing and responding to today's
