Machine Learning, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence Research

Extracting and working with quantities of interest from noisy signals, identifying patterns, and trends in large datasets concerning energy, health, infrastructure, and security—these tasks are now embedded, whether visibly or invisibly, in the activities of our daily lives. Applications where Cooper Union researchers  
are actively developing and applying these techniques include: 

  •  Improving decision making from sensors and sensor networks 
  • Improving modeling and control in aerodynamics 
  • Advancing discovery in health and medicine
  • Mining information from human language
  • Audio, image, and video processing
  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
