NSF Names Gregory Hager as CISE Directorate Head

The National Science Foundation has appointed Gregory Hager as head of the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering, effective June 3.

Hager, a Mandell Bellmore professor of computer science at Johns Hopkins University, is known for his research on artificial intelligence and machine learning, including activity recognition and detection from video data; collaborative and vision-based robotics; and medical applications of ML, image analysis and robotics, the NSF said.

NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan expressed confidence that Hager’s knowledge and experience in computing will contribute to CISE’s efforts to advance research in AI, cybersecurity, semiconductor manufacturing, data science and supercomputing, among other areas.

Hager said his appointment will enable him to support the directorate’s initiatives, noting the impact of CISE-supported research on the existing digital communications infrastructure.

The incoming directorate head is a co-founder of two startups, namely Clear Guide Medical and Ready Robotics. He has also served as chair of the Computing Community Consortium, as a member of the Computing Research Association Board and as a CISE Advisory Committee member.

On Thursday, join the Potomac Officers Club’s 5th Annual AI Summit, where federal leaders and industry experts converge to explore the transformative power of artificial intelligence.
