Innovate Embedded Computing through Collaboration


I will introduce the Intel Science and Technology Center on Embedded Computing (ISTC-EC) hosted at Carnegie Mellon. The vision for the ISTC-EC is to conduct long-term research aimed at advancing embedded compute to deliver breakthrough innovations in system architecture, algorithms, and usage models. The innovations in algorithms and systems to enable next-generation, connected embedded computing platforms are motivated and demonstrated using three key application domains (retail, automotive, and home). By building a community that includes the top minds in the field, and providing the funding and collaborative environment needed to accelerate their research, we hope to deliver technology that can enable useful, exciting, and personalized experiences to the consumers and business owners in the connected environments of the future. I will give an overview of our research portfolio, and deep-dive into a few projects of interest.


Mei Chen is the Principal Investigator for the Intel Science & Technology Center on Embedded Computing hosted at Carnegie Mellon University. She was previously a lead researcher at Intel Labs Pittsburgh, spearheading the research program on computational health. She has a track record of high-impact research in computer vision, robotics and medical imaging, with fifteen granted U.S. patents and five Best Paper Awards at venues including MICCAI, ACCV, ICME. She was featured as the Most Innovative Employee on HP NOW while working at HP Labs, successfully transferring her technology on computational photography to five HP products including the PhotoSmart printers. She earned a Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, a M.S. and B.S. from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.
