NASA Student Airborne Research Program
The Student Airborne Research Program (SARP) is an eight-week summer internship program
for rising senior undergraduate students to acquire hands-on research experience in
all aspects of a scientific campaign using one or more NASA Airborne Science Program
flying science laboratories (aircraft used for SARP have included the DC-8, P-3B,
C-23, UC-12B, and ER-2).
Research areas include atmospheric chemistry, air quality, forest ecology, and ocean
biology. Along with airborne data collection, students will participate in taking
measurements at field sites. The program culminates with formal presentations of research
results and conclusions.

REU: Computational Sensing for Human-Centered AI at Rochester Institute of Technology
The REU Site in Computational Sensing for Human-centered Artificial Intelligence recognizes
that as the boundaries between HCI and AI blur, and AI grows increasingly agile and
pervasive, the next generation of computational scientists must be capable of responsibly
and effectively leveraging a spectrum of sensing data from data-generating humans.
With this focus, the REU Site will expand its trajectory as an attractor for highly
diverse students who will gain experience with sensing hardware and software towards
transformative advances in intelligent systems focused on human behaviors and cognitive
processes. Enabling diverse stakeholders early in their careers to discover how to
collect, fuse, make inference with, and visualize multimodal human data can transform
how humans and machines engage and collaborate. The research in the REU Site will
address two limitations in AI: first, that underserved populations are at risk of
being marginalized with the present focus on big data AI and, second, that AI trainees
often lack experience with human data collection and critical thinking about human-elicited
datasets. The REU Site will stimulate novel, safe ways for systems to team up with
people to address society's vexing problems while remaining fair, attuned to bias,
and representative of the diverse fabric of the general population.
