This endowment was established in 2019 by Ganesh and Hema Moorthy to recruit, reward and retain UW ECE faculty members who have demonstrated significant promise early in their careers.
Data Sciences are fundamentally transforming nearly every area of engineering, science, and society. The University of Washington’s Electrical & Computer Engineering faculty are making fundamental contributions to many different areas of data sciences, including machine learning, AI, optimization, information theory, computer vision, and speech and natural language processing. Many of our data sciences faculty hold secondary appointments in applied mathematics, computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and other departments, and are active participants in cross-disciplinary institutes such as UW’s eScience Institute, the Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence and the Bloedel Hearing Research Center.
Artificial intelligence (AI), mathematical optimization and information theory.

Statistical Signal Processing
Theory, algorithms, signal processing systems and signal processing applications (i.e. biomedical, geophysical signals and synthetic signals).
Speech and Natural Language Processing
Speech recognition, natural language understanding, computational linguistics and web-based language techniques.
Computer Vision and Image Processing
Video analysis, surveillance, object recognition, activity recognition, medical image analysis and video compression
UW ECE team of researchers present their unique 'unsupervised' approach to action recognition this week at major Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2020 conference.
UW ECE faculty and students are leading collaborative research aimed at reducing impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Projects range from assisting with diagnostics, testing and tracking, to engineering ventilator technology, to developing targeted treatments for the disease.
System Design Methodologies Professor Mari Ostendorf joins one of eight new corresponding fellows, announced from across sciences, arts, education, business and public life.
ECE lecturer John Raiti's MSTI students created SnapSort!, an intelligent, real-time trash sorting assistant that uses computer vision and machine learning.
Could this be the beginning of a new era of VR and AR tech? ECE doctoral student Farshid Salemi Parizi and Prof. Shwetak Patel have created AuraRing, a 5 DoF electromagnetic ring and wristband combination that can detect the precise location of someone’s finger and continuously track hand movements.
