Computer Science at Iowa - a video

Computer Science trains you to view problems in a wide variety of settings through a computational lens and approach them algorithmically. Yes, computer programming is often part of this process, but it’s really about the problem solving! If you like puzzles and you are methodical, disciplined, and creative, then a CS Dept major may be right for you.

University of Iowa spearheads project to set ethical guidelines for youth and XR technology

University of Iowa computer scientist Juan Pablo Hourcade is assembling an interdisciplinary team of researchers to develop foundational ethical principles for conducting research with youth for extended reality (XR) technologies.
“The goal of this project is to proactively examine the ethical considerations for youth up front with guidelines so that new technologies can be developed responsibly.”

Daily Iowan: Adhikari in "New artificial intelligence developed for radiology at the UI"

"Bijaya Adhikari said the public has concerns about AI. He said one concern is that AI will impact the quality of patient care, but he said it will not. He said another common concern about AI is that it will replace human labor and cause people to be laid off, but he also does not see this happening. He said AI will complement human expertise and inform healthcare providers of possible next steps in treatment."
