UHV students present research in international webinar

Albert Scaria, a University of Houston-Victoria graduate student from Sugar Land, presents research about artificial intelligence during a June webinar as Hardik Gohel, UHV assistant professor of computer science, listens. Scaria was one of two UHV students who presented research during a webinar on June 17 and 18 for the Charotar University of Science and Technology in India. The other student was Trang Huynh of Richmond. Both Scaria and Huynh are pursuing Master of Science in computer science degrees. Scaria’s research was about smart cleaning robots for COVID-19 viruses. His research looked at how ultraviolet light can be used to kill viruses. Artificial intelligence can be built into a robot to use the light to perform cleaning in residences. Huynh’s research focused on smart energy systems and how artificial intelligence can be used to create and control optimum solar energy systems.
