Olive, the automation platform creating the Internet of Healthcare, today announced a grant to Miami University’s College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) to expand its healthcare research capabilities. The donation provides a significant research investment within the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSE) to address key technology challenges and enhance healthcare outcomes across the globe.

Olive is providing funding for CEC research addressing areas such as, but not limited to, data proprietary rights, intellectual property and patents and line-item financial reporting. In addition, a scholarship will be awarded to a faculty member with a prominent research background in applying AI to the social sciences, logic programming and knowledge representation. The Olive Faculty Scholar will serve as faculty liaison to Olive, providing a direct point of contact within CEC and coordinating engagements with Olive teams.

“This generous donation from Olive will help support students and faculty and perform cutting edge research in the in-demand field of Computer Science and Software Engineering as it relates to healthcare,” said Beena Sukumaran, Professor and Dean of the College of Engineering and Computing at Miami University. “On behalf of Miami University's students, faculty, researchers and staff, we thank Mr. Lane and Olive for their commitment to Miami University and the Ohio community by improving healthcare outcomes for all people.”

Sean Lane recently returned to Miami University to deliver the keynote address during the College of Engineering 2022 Recognition Ceremony.
