Principal Investigator

Professor Sang Peter Chin

Research Professor

Professor Chin is a Research Professor of Computer Science at Boston University and director of the LISP (Learning, Intelligence + Signal Processing) lab. Since completing his PhD in differential geometric methods to understand Einstein’s field equations, he has been passionate about developing geometric and topological methods to learn and understand information in general – signals (neural, RF, images, videos, hyper-spectral, etc.), graphs (social networks, communication networks, etc.) and human interactions via game theory. Recently, he has been interested in developing sparse deep networks to extract information and developing intelligence from large data sets. Most of his research is being (and has been) supported by AFOSR, DARPA, NSF, NIH, ODNI, ONR, OSD, and others.
