The Terascale All-sensing Research Studio is run by Dr. Sean Banerjee from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Dr. Natasha Banerjee from the Department of Computer Science at Clarkson University. The studio involves research in the areas of multi-camera systems in computer vision, computer graphics, human-computer interaction, software engineering, linguistics, biometrics, and big data analytics.

We affectionately call the studio TARS (which has been backronymed to its current name). The studio is named after our loud but competent server, which in turn is named after a robotic character from a certain 2014 science-fiction movie.

We have a variety of interesting research projects. Please scroll through to see them.
