November 18, 2022 (Noon-1 p.m. ET)
National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR), NICHD
Webinar; registration is free but required
The Medical Rehabilitation Research Speaker Series provides an opportunity for selected NCMRR and NIH rehabilitation research grantees to share their research with colleagues from rehabilitation-related and other fields.
This fourth session features NCMRR grantees Deanna Gates, Ph.D., and Jacob George, Ph.D., presenting their advances in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Dr. Gates is an associate professor of movement science in the School of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan. She is also an associate professor of biomedical engineering in the College of Engineering and Medical School and the director of the Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory. Her research focuses on biomechanics, rehabilitation, prosthetic and orthotics, control of repetitive movements, and nonlinear dynamics.
Dr. George is an assistant professor in the Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the University of Utah. He also is the director of the Utah NeuroRobotics Lab, which is working at the intersection of artificial intelligence, robotics, and neuroscience, to develop biologically inspired artificial intelligence and brain-machine interfaces to restore and/or enhance human function. His research seeks to augment biological neural networks with artificial neural networks and bionic devices to treat neurological disorders and further our understanding of neural processing.
Series events will include presentations from the grantees followed by a question-and-answer session.
Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity should contact Eliza Polk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-242-0003 at least 5 days in advance.
