  1. CSI (Center for Systems Integration) Teaching application development, Building Research Collaborations, interacting with industry and academia, and encouraging social entrepreneurship. Ravi Shankar, PhD, MBA, PE, Fellow (AHA) Professor, College of Engineering and Computer Science Francis X McAfee, MFA Associate Professor, College of Arts and Letters Don Ploger, PhD Associate Professor, College of Education Michael Harris, PhD Associate Professor, College of Arts and Letters Ravi S Behara, PhD Associate Professor, College of Business Florida Atlantic University, FL

  2. Center for Systems Integration • Formed in 1993 - with funding from Motorola Paging & NSF • Funding: from industry and federal sources - $4.3 M • Recent Grants: • OPP (One Pass to Production) from iDEN, Motorola, at $1.1 M • SBA (Small Business Administration) at $123 K • Recent Submissions: • NSF - Robotics in Math Education - $450K, 8/12 – 8/14 • NSF – Partnership for Innovation – Semantic Web Research - $600K – 1/13- 12/14 • Planned Submissions: NSF /TUES – May 2012 – Android Projects - $200K • Current Focus: Mobile, Web, and Complex Systems • Philosophy: Open Source, Multi-Disciplinary Collaboration, Social Entrepreneurship, industry alliance, and small business formation by our students • See www.csi.fau.edu, android.fau.edu, robotics.fau.edu, semanticweb.fau.edu

  3. Success Stories (past two years) • Several Multidisciplinary courses: • Android Apps– ~325 High school, UG, Grad, Engineers • (Spring 2012 – Four way collaboration – 65 students) • Robotics - ~45 UG and Grads; 15 High school (Sp’12) • Semantic Web - ~40 Grad students • Steve Jobs’ way: Integrate technology, art, humanities, business, innovation, research, and education, as appropriate • Key Additions: Use all open source tools; leverage university infrastructure; and • Market Apps to raise revenue for authors & university

  4. ESP Course for High School Students (Su 2010) • Provided high school students chance to learn application development---promotional, artistic, and programming. • Encouraged entrepreneurship/commercialization. • 7 Game Apps to be marketed http://android.fau.edu/

  5. ESP Course (Su ‘11): 30 students (9 High Schools) Marketable Applications: 7+ http://vimeo.com/album/1660512

  10. Methodology ( Past 2 years) • Driving Factors: NSF Funding Criteria – Broad Impact, Intellectual Merit, STEM, Integration of Resch& Education, Diversity, Dissemination, Sustenance, and Assessment, (in addition to a good scientific/technical proposal). • Strategic Decision made to address these issues and Apply OPP principles (to significantly increase design productivity) developed with Motorola grant. See www.csi.fau.edu • The experience, however, has been truly rewarding in its own right! • Teaching: 425 (High school to Graduate) Students & Business --- ‘STEM’ Focus • App Development: Games, Social Impact, Educational • Others: Chess Robotics, Semantic Web • ALL Open Source Tools: Code/Designs available; community help & service

  11. Methodology (2 years)…. • Collaborations: with arts & letters, education, business • Soon others: nursing, urban planning, and science • Websites (FAU and Student Blog Sites): -- ‘Dissemination’ • android.fau.edu (100K+ hits), robotics.fau.edu, semanticweb.fau.edu • New – student and team blog sites: free wordpress.com • Business Ventures: -- ‘Broad Impact’ • 4 Student companies – Engineering & Business Majors; University relationship (Appstractions, Mobilitude, DroidTroiz, Pathway Media) • 2nd prize in university business competition; FAU Owl Radio; NSF partner; and Video Clips • Commercialization: -- ‘ Sustenance’ • 14 Apps to be marketed (by Su ‘12) • Goals: Revenue for the authors and self-sustenance • Proposals submitted: 4 to NSF (not funded); 1990s: 3 funded • Led to this re-thinking • Now, better infrastructure and higher probability

  12. Proposal • Wish to use my sabbatical leave during Fall ‘12-Sp’13 for this • Build CSI (Consortium for Small Scale Innovations) • Leverage our experience with mobile systems • Help /contribute to building a different type of infrastructure • multi-college and multi-university collaborations • Involve high schools, enhance STEM and diversity goals • Build and market Apps; and share revenue with authors • Seed research collaboration of these authors/groups; and submit proposals • Relevant Potential Submissions: • Large multi-institutional proposals on STEM to NSF/ DoEd - $2M / 5 years • Healthy Aging Focus : IGERT – Integrative Graduate Education & Research Traineeshiphttp://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2011/nsf11533/nsf11533.htm - 5/13, 7/13, $3.3 M/ 5 years. “Collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries” • Smart Health and Wellbeing: Empowered Individuals; Sensors, Devices, and Robotics. 2/13, $200 K to $2 M, 2 to 5 Years http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2012/nsf12512/nsf12512.pdf -

  14. 2. Social Impact Games: Engineering Undergraduates Collaboration with Arts & Letters: Anthropology and Fine Arts (Sp’11) Spring 2012: Four way collaboration, including Business College, and students from four disciplines (60 Students)

  15. 3. Android Chess Robotics: Undergrads and 9-12 Collaborators: Education, Arts & Letters, and High Schools, STEM Focus Kits and Apps NSF DRK-12 submitted Fall 2011: Undergraduate Engineering course on Robotic Art Spring 2012: Mechatronics for Pre-Engineering high school students http://robotics.fau.edu/ http://truther2faurobotics.wordpress.com/

  16. 4. Smart Web Applications : Combining Semantic and Intelligent Web conceptsExample from Fall ‘10: Android Off-Road Trail : Using Geonames Integration of Open Source Tools & Standards: Jena, Lucene, Protégé, Nutch, Jade, RDF, OWL, SWRL, SPARQL, Solr, etc Focus of NSF/PFI: Partnership for Innovation Fall 2011 Apps: Academic and Medical - Focus on Personal Empowerment http://semanticweb.fau.edu/ http://fwythedabney.wordpress.com/
