Dr. Batmanghelich is at the intersection of medical vision (medical image analysis), machine learning, and bioinformatics. He develops algorithms to analyze and understand medical images along with genetic data and other electrical health records such as the clinical report. For example, he developed a probabilistic model to extract information from brain images (Magnetic Resonance Images) of patients with Alzheimer's disease and relates them the underlying genetic markers involved in the disease. He is interested in novel method development as well as real-world clinical applications.

Dr. Benosman's research is devoted to study and understand biological and computation machine learning operated by brains with the goal to build complete neuromorphic systems (sensors, brain-like computation devices, and algorithms) and solve open problems both in medecine, life long learning, robotics and general AI.
This stream of research is bidirectional in the sense that insights can come from both sides, whether from understanding neural recordings or by working in the same space-time mathematical spaces of the brain using silicon retinas and neural processors but also conventional hardware.
His research can then be summarized by the following three main tracks:
- Neuromorphic engineering development of bioinspired sensors, new brain inspired computation platforms and spike-based machine learning
- Computer Vision and Robotics for a new kind of biologically inspired computer vision and bio inspired robotics allowing dynamic data interpretation and decision-support
- Medicine: computational neurosciences, biomedical engineering, monitoring physiologic processes, neu-
ral stimulation devices for retina and cortex implants and optogenetics techniques
Dr. Benosman's lab develops a unique neuromorphic asynchronous silicon retina that provides both pathways of biological retinas while being 1000 times faster. This sensor is inspired by the biology of the eye and brain.

Dr. Wu’s background is in computer vision with additional training in radiology and clinical imaging. His research interfaces a broad range of interdisciplinary in computational science and medicine for translational and clinical applications, with main areas in computational biomedical imaging analysis, big (health) data coupled with machine/deep learning, imaging-based clinical studies, radiomics/radiogenomics, and artificial intelligence in clinical informatics/workflows. Current research interests center on computational breast imaging and clinical studies for investigating quantitative imaging-derived biomarkers, models, and systems for breast cancer screening, risk assessment, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, towards improving individualized clinical decision-making and precision medicine.
