Get to know William:

William Edward Hahn graduated from Guilford College in 2008 with a B.S. degree in Mathematics/Physics and research focus in neural networks/particle swarm optimization. After Guilford, William researched artificial intelligence and immune systems at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro before joining the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University in 2011. In 2014, William co-founded the Machine Perception and Cognitive Robotics Laboratory with the purpose of building a team of creative scientists, programmers, and engineers to develop novel hardware/software environments that allow the exploration of the intersection of perception, computation, and robotics. In the Summer of 2016, William received a Ph.D. for his work in Sparse Coding and Compressed Sensing, and in the Fall 0f 2016 was hired as Research Scientist to continue his work in the MPCR Lab.

At the MPCR Lab co-founded by Dr. Hahn and Dr. Elan Barenholtz, a new model of education is being proven. Multi-disciplinary teams comprised of PhD researchers, master's degree students, high school students, and members of the community work together on the frontiers of technology with important projects that will improve how we use information in practically any area of study or commerce, while at the same time exploring perception and neuroscience.
