Madrid-MIT Consortium Seeking Applicants for Biomedical Imaging Program

The Madrid-MIT M+Visión Consortium, formed in Sept. 2010, is a global initiative dedicated to helping Madrid, Spain, strengthen and expand its position as an emerging global center for biomedical research. The consortium--including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, La Suma de Todos - Comunidad de Madrid, and the European Union--is launching a new Fellowship program this coming summer (2011) that is designed to accelerate cutting-edge research in translational biomedical imaging and establish new enterprises in Madrid.

Balakrishnan, Madden use cars as traffic sensors

EECS/CSAIL Professors Hari Balakrishnan and Samuel Madden have been developing a way for cars to be used as ubiquitous, highly reliable mobile sensors. As part of this effort, members of the CarTel team have developed a new algorithm to optimize the dissemination of data through a network of cars with wireless connections. This is already of interest to Ford and Microsoft as these two companies jointly develop future versions of Sync, an in-car communications and entertainment system.
