The Intelligent and Scalable Systems REU Site, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and hosted by the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh University, provides undergraduate students from across the country with an opportunity to learn how to harness the incredible potential of machine learning and the unprecedented power of modern parallel compute resources, and to use their knowledge and experience to invent new systems and algorithms that are infused with intelligence and capable of solving pressing societal problems.
Modern advances in machine learning, especially the use of parallel computational resources to train algorithms on large data sets, is enabling revolutions in many sectors of our society and our economy. To sustain this revolution, our REU Site is focused on research into fundamental topics in both machine learning and scalable computer systems, such as new algorithms for machine learning, new approaches to privacy preservation, and new techniques for increasing the performance of parallel programs. We also support application-focused research, with an emphasis on creating solutions to hard problems in both research and society.
Stipend: Each student will be paid a stipend of $6,000 for the 10-week program, plus weekday lunches and a credit for food expenses of $500.
Dates: The 2020 ten-week program will run from May 26, 2020 to August 1, 2020. Participants must be on campus for this entire period.
Housing: Each student enrolled in the program will be housed free of charge on the campus of Lehigh University. There is a residential component to the program, so participants may not opt out of the housing to live elsewhere.
Travel: Each student will be able to request up to $750 in reimbursement for travel to and from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA for the program. Additional funding is available to support attendance at conferences to present research results.
Additional Salary Information: Stipend plus housing, travel reimbursement, weekday lunches and $500 toward food.
