ABOUT THE STUDIO

The Terascale All-sensing Research Studio, co-directed by Dr. Sean Banerjee and Dr. Natasha Banerjee from the Department of Computer Science at Clarkson University. The studio leverages the understanding of large human interactions in online and real-world environments to perform research in computer vision, computer graphics, linguistics, human-computer interaction, and software engineering. The studio houses a five-Kinect + two-microphone capture space, an eight-Raspberry Pi camera microenvironment, a virtual reality space, and two 3D printers. We perform research on leveraging multi-sensor systems in computer vision, computer graphics, human-computer interaction, software engineering, biometrics, and linguistics.

The studio has received significant press attention, and has produced winners of awards such as the Symposium on Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE) Best Oral and Poster Presentations, Research and Presentation Showcase (RAPS) Best Oral Presentations, and the Goldwater Scholarship. Through the work done at the studio, our students have received undergraduate research experiences at institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University and Los Alamos National Laboratory. We supervise several undergraduate and Honors student theses, and we have close ties with the Honors Program at Clarkson University for mentorship of students.

We are actively hiring undergraduate and graduate researchers of high caliber to perform research at the studio. Contact Dr. Natasha Banerjee (nbanerje atsymb clarkson dotsymb edu) for research in vision and graphics, Dr. Sean Banerjee (sbanerje atsymb clarkson dotsymb edu) for research in linguistics and software engineering, and either for research in human-computer interaction.

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.
