Grant to fund work on data pat­terns

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

FAYET­TEVILLE — A $300,000 grant will sup­port a Univer­sity of Arkansas, Fayet­teville re­searcher’s work to quickly iden­tify un­usual data pat­terns.

Jingx­ian Wu, an elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor, re­ceived the award from the Na­tional Sci­ence Foun­da­tion’s Di­vi­sion of Elec­tri­cal, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Cy­ber Sys­tems.

“The ex­pected out­comes of the project in­clude a set of the­o­ries and prac­ti­cal al­go­rithms that can be used to de­tect anom­aly events with min­i­mum de­lays,” Wu said in a state­ment re­leased by UA. “The al­go­rithms can then be ap­plied to var­i­ous ap­pli­ca­tions, such as the cy­ber­se­cu­rity of power grids or the safety of crit­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture.”
