Carolina joins new NSF institute to enhance artificial intelligence tools for a more equitable, inclusive classroom experienceJuly 29, 2021
The institute launched today with a five-year, $20 million grant from the NSF, bringing together leading researchers and education experts from Carolina, lead partner North Carolina State University, Indiana University, Vanderbilt University and educational non-profit Digital Promise to make these AI tools more accessible.
Doctoral student Inbar Fried was awarded the NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein Individual Predoctoral (F30) Fellowship, which seeks to enhance the integrated research and clinical training of promising predoctoral students who intend careers as physician-scientists or other clinician-scientists.
Why Computer Science
UNC Computer Science faculty and students describe the department in their own words.
We Are UNC Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science at UNC-Chapel Hill was one of the first independent computer science departments established in the U.S. Founded in 1964 by Turing Award winner Dr. Frederick Brooks, Jr., the department is home to more than 1,600 students and led by award-winning faculty who are recognized internationally for their groundbreaking research and expertise.
Computer Science at Carolina is as unique as our students and faculty. As toolsmiths, our faculty and students use foundations in computer science to collaboratively build technological solutions across a broad range of multi-disciplinary areas. Thanks to our world-class faculty and our student body, we continue to make an impact both inside and outside of the classroom.
