Consider yourself “fashionably late”
Banking powerhouse Capital One teamed up with UMD to open the new Center for Machine Learning, which will tackle challenges in big data, computer vision, health care and financial transactions. Tech giant Adobe is also partnering with university researchers at its new location in the Discovery District. Successful UMD-launched companies, including data management platform Immuta, quantum computer-building ionQ and bandage alternative gel-e, opened their headquarters near campus, recognizing the long-term advantages of collaborating with the University of Maryland. We can build a custom relationship to benefit your business, too.
The official sponsors of tomorrow
Sergey Brin earned his degree in computer science and mathematics here. Brendan Iribe and two fellow Terps helped launch Oculus. Anthony Casalena started Squarespace in a UMD dorm room. The University of Maryland’s legacy of talent is one reason why we’re known around the world as a leader in computer science.
