The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) featured the SONYC project in their February, 2019 newsletter. SONYC’s goal is to leverage “the latest in machine learning technology, big data analysis, and citizen science reporting to more effectively monitor, analyze, and mitigate urban noise pollution.”
The new Navigating Research Technology site guides researchers through the many research technology resources offered by NYU IT and the NYU Libraries, including digital library and archiving tools, high performance computing, data services, 3D scanning and printing, and more.
During the 2018 DH+Data Day, Dana Arwas, an Industry Assistant Professor of Integrated Digital Media at NYU Tandon, delivered a presentation about the “City Record Historical Project.” The City Record is the official periodical of the city of New York, published every weekday, except for legal holidays, since June 24, 1873 and detailing the day-to-day business of running, governing, and administering one of the most complex cities in the world.
In February of 2018, 3D scanning and printing experts at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio arrived at NYU Langone Health to scan the face of William Fisher. The Studio was tasked with creating a highly-detailed, lifelike mask to replace the face he was donating to another. This is the story of the 34 hours Studio staff spent as part of this procedure.

The NYU Holodeck is a cutting-edge shared virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) environment currently in development that will “create an immersive, collaborative, virtual/ physical research environment providing unparalleled tools for research collaborations, intellectual exploration, and creative output.”
The November 18, 2018 episode of ABC News’ 20/20, titled “Brave New Face,” highlighted LaGuardia Studio’s contributions to a face transplant performed in January of 2018 by Eduardo D. Rodriguez, MD, DDS, chair of NYU Langone Health’s Hansjӧrg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and director of its Face Transplant Program. Staff at the Studio scanned […]
In the 1800s, Colden’s Liquid Beef Tonic was sold as a cure for alcoholism. It’s primary ingredient? Alcohol. This may not be the sort of thing one expects to learn at an event dedicated to discussing data visualization and research. DH+Data Day is a testament to the expansions in who uses data, what they use it for, and how it’s analyzed.
Researchers1 from the NYU School of Medicine made use of NYU High Performance Computing (HPC) resources and Google’s deep learning artificial intelligence algorithm to advance the understanding of lung cancer and mutations in tumors. Using Google’s Inception v3 (an open-source algorithm) and the HPC neural network, they were able to accurately differentiate between two different […]
LiDAR, Insights for ArcGIS, Survey123, Web AppBuilder, and More NYU Data Services is hosting a two-day Esri geospatial data workshop series. The workshops will cover LiDAR processing and 3D modeling using Esri’s ArcGIS platform, and three Esri apps: Insights for ArcGIS for data visualization and analytics, Survey123 for field data capture, and Web AppBuilder for […]
