November 7, 2022-- UC San Diego teams took home six out of 19 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship awards for 2022, the company announced. 

The fellowships are designed to enable students to pursue futuristic, innovative ideas. The six UC San Diego teams bring together Ph.D. students from the Departments of Computer Science and Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering. 

Qualcomm asked for submissions in the areas of advanced semiconductor electronics, advances in communication techniques and theory, autonomous driving, machine learning, multimedia computing, processor architecture and Security Operations Center design, secure system design, and semiconductor test, quality and yield learning. 

The six teams from UC San Diego are:

  • Mingchao Liang and Wenyi Zhang, from the research group of professor Florian Meyer, who is on faculty both at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering : Neural-Enhanced multipath-aided positioning 
  • Ish Kumar Jain and Raghav Subbaraman, from the research groups of electrical and computer engineering  Professor Dinesh Bharadia and computer science professor Aaron Schulman: Augmenting environment sensing with multi-beam 5G mmWave systems
  • Ross Greer and Kuang-Lin Chen from the research groups of electrical and computer engineering professors Mohan Trivedi and Bhaskar Rao: Active learning for efficient annotations of very large datasets: framework, models, metrics and case studies in autonomous driving 
  • Yinbo Chen and Jiarui Xu from the research group of electrical and computer engineering  professor Xiaolong Wang: Transformers as metal-learners for neural fields
  • Xiyuan Zhang and Ranak Roy Chowdhury from the research groups of computer science professors Jingbo Shang and Rajesh Gupta, who is also the director of the Halicioglu Data Science Institute: Robust machine learning for IoT devices
