Research at the InstituteResearch is at the core of everything we do at the FedEx Institute of Technology. Through the cluster initiatives and the cutting edge research centers at the Institute and across campus, the FedEx Institute is leading the city and the region in technology innovation. We are pleased to highlight the work we are doing to take Memphis beyond the edge.
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, the MD2K team is making realtime healthcare data accessible across numerous metrics
The Center for IA is dedicated to providing world-class research, training, and career development for Information Assurance professionals and students alike by organizing community events, special purpose conferences, and vendor specific training programs.
The Systems Testing Excellence Program (STEP) is a major interdisciplinary research initiative with academic program support from the Fogelman College of Business and Economics.
The IMC is a shared research facility offering high-end instrumentation, technical support, and education to the University of Memphis research community, as well as to other regional academic institutions and industries.
This center combines the efforts of two previous centers, the Center for Partnerships in GIS and the Ground Water Institute, creating expanded research opportunities that cross more academic disciplines. The goal of CAESER is "building smarter, stronger communities."
Unmanned and autonomous systems are emerging into commercial sectors and changing how we see the world. DRONES is the future.
Memphis is an international logistics center. Our Biologistics cluster is leading the field in this emerging field in a partnership with the Intermodal Freight Transport Institute at U of M.
Cybersecurity is a concern in every industry. The Institute's long standing expertise in cybersecurity is leveraged through our CAST cluster.
Big Data and Analytics 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.
