Description:
REU in Combinatorics and Algorithms for Real Problems (CAAR) is a 10 week NSF funded research program designed to bridge the gap between the theory (algorithms, probability, combinatorics, Theoretical Machine Learning,others) and other disciplines within Computer Science (AI, Operations Reseach, practical machine learning, others.)

Students come to the University of Maryland for 10 weeks over the summer. They get $5000 and free room and some board. They work on projects with faculty in small groups.

The theme of REU-CAAR (Research Experience for Undergraduates: Combinatorics and Algorithms for Applied Research) is to take theoretical research and see how it can be made practical.

The projects this year are on:

-Fairness in AI.

-Parallelism:,

-Machine Translation,

-Quantum Computing,

-Complexity Theory,

-Computational Geometry.
