EDUCATION

  • Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, University of California at Berkeley
  • M.S., Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University
  • B.S., Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University

Dr. Fuge's research focuses on developing machine learning algorithms that learn from and subsequently aid human design and creativity; a mixture of topics that he calls Design Informatics. This involves using a combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational linguistics, ethnography, human-computer interaction, social science, and crowdsourcing techniques to analyze and build web-based software tools for designers on top of scalable machine learning systems.

UMD workshop examines risks related to new transportation technology

Key concerns include vehice safety, software reliabillity, and cybersecurity.

New affiliate faculty Mark Fuge is expert in machine learning and artificial intelligence

Fuge mentored 'Oyster Boys,' developers of underwater microphone to sense illegal oyster dredging.

Empowering Experience and Innovation

Working together, the University of Maryland and IBM encourage students and faculty to think big and leverage technology.

Oyster Beacon Targets Sustainability

The Oyster Boys Team built a dredge detection device that uses sensors to detect illegal dredging.
