Terascale All-Sensing Research Studio (TARS) at Clarkson University

At the Terascale All-Sensing Research Studio (TARS) at Clarkson University, co-directors Professors Sean Banerjee and Natasha Banerjee  research human-driven artificial intelligence using capture and analysis of dense multi-person interactions in online and real-world environments. Professors Sean and Natasha Banerjee are currently constructing one of the world’s largest multi-modal multi-view capture facility, consisting of 240 high-speed color cameras, 16 depth cameras, 16 microphones, 16 thermal cameras and 100 force plates.

Clarkson's ROTC programs hosted blackhawk helicopters for a training

Helicopters on the Lawn!

One of the most visible, not to mention loudest, events in the School of Arts & Sciences this last year was the arrival of the Black Hawk helicopter from Fort Drum for our Army ROTC. (While the cadets of the Golden Knight Battalion come from Clarkson and from our sister schools in the St. Lawrence Valley, we are proud to house them administratively in Arts & Sciences, along with the Air Force ROTC group.) The video below captures some of the excitement of the day. Storyboarding is the reporting format cadets learn to use for their activities. ROTC has promised rides to the President and the Dean next time!

But our location can also be one of our greatest assets, with lots to learn here!
