The Grand Challenges Initiative is Chapman University’s groundbreaking new approach to training the next generation of leaders in science and engineering. The program provides foundational skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and teamwork for every undergraduate student entering the Schmid College of Science and Technology and the Dale E. and Sarah Ann Fowler School of Engineering.

Starting with their first day on campus, students work in small teams to imagine innovative solutions to a company or industry’s science, tech, or engineering problem. Student teams study challenges in fields ranging from cybersecurity to antibiotic resistance. Under the mentorship of our world-class faculty, they explore the nature of the challenge, learn sophisticated and interdisciplinary methods for problem-solving, and pursue ideas with the power to transform.

As a company partner, over the course of four semesters you will meet with the student team and their faculty mentor to discuss the project, receive regular written updates and an end-of-semester presentation of progress, and identify promising students for summer internships or employment after graduation. Project fees for GCI company partners start at $5,000.

To learn about how your organization and/or professionals can get involved with the Grand Challenges Initiative, contact Gregory R. Goldsmith, Ph.D., Director, Grand Challenges Initiative at [email protected] or 714-516-5881.

AI Innovation

Machine Learning and Affiliated Technology (MLAT) Lab

The Machine Learning and Affiliated Technology (MLAT) Lab was founded in January 2015 with the goal of providing a formal organization for researchers at Chapman dedicated to leveraging technology to improve the understanding and treatment of developmental disorders. While our projects vary from machine learning to virtual reality to bioinformatics, we all work together to apply cutting-edge science to clinical, educational, and medical domains. In particular, we specialize in understanding the screening, treatment, and management of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Together with our collaborators we try to get innovative technologies deployed to the people that stand to benefit the most from them. Led by Dr. Erik Linstead, our team contains expertise in the areas of predictive analytics, software engineering, molecular biology, and artificial intelligence.

Chapman’s MLAT Lab works with companies through sponsored research agreements to help solve company’s specific research problems. Through sponsored research agreements, companies have access to Chapman’s faculty and graduate students who specialize in AI research.

To find out more about how Chapman’s MLAT Lab can assist your company, please contact Dr. Erik Linstead, Associate Dean and Experian Associate Professor in Machine Learning, at [email protected] or 714-289-3159.
