IRC's research is generously sponsored by government and industry. IRC leads the China National Basic Research Initiative (dubbed 973 Plan) on Urban Big Data Computing – how the processing of urban big data, ranging from physical sensors to information systems to user generated contents, can capitalize on the spatial and temporal registration among them to consolidate data, extract semantical information, and ultimately, achieve new insights. Under a China-Israel joint grant, IRC also collaborates closely with Daniel Cohen-Or, Dani Lischinski, and Andrei Sharf on the analysis of social camera captures. Under China-Germany Collaboration Program (PPP), IRC has established an annual exchange program with Stuttgart and Constance, on research concerning visual analytics of big data.
IRCers are the happy crowd that calls IRC home, a place we grow, mature, and thrive, leaving a fun, and sometimes exhilarating, memory behind, be it the birthday party, or the first fall on the ski slopes. An annual family album captures the roads we hiked, the mountains we climbed, the hills we skied, and the oceans we sailed together.
IRC constantly looks out to extend the family by recruiting special individuals like you – whether undergraduates, graduates, PostDocs, or faculty members!
