Cities want to be on the leading edge. Companies want to stay on the cutting edge.
And everyone, it seems, is looking for the competitive edge. But to achieve these
goals, somebody has to go beyond the edge, into unknown territory to explore new possibilities,
make new discoveries, and develop the next generation of emerging technologies. This
is the work of the FedEx Institute of Technology at the University of Memphis: ADVANCING
THE SCIENCE OF WHAT'S NEXT
We coordinate and secure funding for world-class research. We offer a dynamic community
for collaboration and the exchange of new ideas. And we foster strong relationships
with businesses and community partners throughout the region who know the value of
innovation and understand the advantages of being first. So come and join us beyond
the edge, and see just how exciting the future can be.
Innovative technology research is at the heart of everything the FedEx Institute of
Technology does. Utilizing our research cluster model, the Institute brings together
interdisciplinary researchers from across campus to create a community focused on
addressing opportunities in key emerging technologies. By providing a research context
and a community to support this research, we are able to make rapid innovation a possibility.
Our most established cluster brings together a team from across the university to
address the challenges of artificial intelligence and machine learning in developing
instruction and tutoring modules.
The MD2K cluster is an NIH funded collaboration between 11 Universities across the
country. Working in collaboration, MD2K is making real-time healthcare data accessible
across numerous metrics
Unmanned and autonomous systems are emerging in commercial sectors and changing how
we see the world. DRONES are the future.
Memphis is an international logistics center. Our Biologistics cluster is leading
the way in this emerging field via a partnership with the Intermodal Freight Transport
Institute (IFTI) at UofM.
Cyber security and testing is a concern in every industry. The Institute's
long standing expertise in this area is leveraged through our CAST cluster.
As the tools to collect data become increasingly more sophisticated, it is essential
that we create the solutions to rapidly process this data and prevent a data backlog.
The Big Data cluster is pioneering this research.
The University of Memphis and the City of Memphis are partnering on a Smart City
Initiative to address the needs of Memphis citizens utilizing emerging technologies
and innovations arising from research at the UofM.
Upcoming Events Calendar: April | May | June
