Two student teams score wins in Airport Cooperative Research Program design competition

Airport runways become unpredictable with winter precipitation. Mary Johnson, associate professor of aviation and transportation technology, worked with a student team to propose the adaptation of remote sensing technologies used for glaciers and ski resorts to measure snow and ice. Over 10 years, this technology could save $500,000 at Purdue’s airport.

CIT faculty aim to make big data a small issue for law enforcement

Law enforcement agencies have been relying on forensics tools not well suited to today’s digital world. To provide a modern, cost-effective solution, a research team led by Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, assistant professor of computer and information technology, is building File Toolkit for Selective Analysis & Reconstruction (File TSAR) for Large Scale Computer Networks.

“Dark patterns” in user experience design manipulates consumers, says CGT research

The National Science Foundation has awarded research grants to Colin Gray, assistant professor of computer graphics technology, to study “dark patterns,” the name given to user experience (UX) design practices in which the designer uses knowledge of human behavior and the desires of end users to intentionally manipulate them into actions not in their best interest.
