Rice University and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur have announced the first recipients of the Rice-IITK Strategic Collaboration Awards program, which aims to foster joint research and innovation in fields such as computer science, engineering, data science, and health care. The winners selected from submitted proposals include one researcher from each institution, with recipients receiving up to $38,000 in funding.

Among the winning proposals are a comprehensive study of solution spaces and model uncertainty using a combination of artificial intelligence and machine learning models; the use of radio frequency reflections from the human body to track the positions of victims buried under debris following a building collapse; a study to characterize food inks suitable for three-dimensional printing; and the use of a new recording tool and computational method to improve available information about the non-human primate anterior cingulate cortex.
