  • Michael Stonebraker, a researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) who has revolutionized the field of database management systems (DBMSs) and founded multiple successful database companies, has won the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) A.M. Turing Award, often referred to as “the Nobel Prize of computing.” Read more.
  • Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) principal investigator and EECS Prof. Martin Rinard with members of his research group, the Center for Resilient Software, including CSAIL research scientist Stelios Sidiroglou-Douskos have developed DIODE (for Directed Integer Overflow Detection) a system to provide an effective mechanism for finding dangerous integer overflows that affect memory allocation sites in debugging code.

  • Former and current EECS graduate students have created new methods to automate identification of potential areas for development in rural villages in both India and sub-Saharan Africa. The group won a $10,000 prize last year from the MIT IDEAS Global Challenge. Read more.
  • MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan and Associate Department Heads Bill Freeman, Silvio Micali, and David Perreault announced in February 2015, the promotions of eight faculty members in the department. Professors Adalsteinsson, Daniel, Golland, and Torralba are promoted to full professor. Professors Chilpala, Polyanskiy and Vaikuntanathan are promoted to associate professor. The promotions are effective July 1, 2015. Read more.
  • MIT announced a major thrust toward addressing cybersecurity with the launch of three new initiatives including one focused on technology research to be based in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). Read more.
  • Please come to our Informational Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th to hear faculty, researchers, and grad students present on exciting research happenings at CSAIL, and how you can be a part of them! check it out!
  • Here’s one way to get kids excited about programming: a "robot garden" with dozens of fast-changing LED lights and more than 100 origami robots that can crawl, swim, and blossom like flowers. Read more.
  • When MIT senior Sheldon Trotman walks into any room, he almost instinctively looks for inefficiencies. The electrical engineering and computer science major is bent on streamlining our world, and has already founded several small companies that aim to do so. Read more.
  • Mapping the human genome, accomplished a decade ago, was heralded for laying the foundation for understanding genetic variation and links to a wide range of diseases. But genes can be switched on and off by many chemical modifications, aka "epigenetic marks." Now Manolis Kellis, EECS professor and member of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Broad Institute has led an NIH group that has created a similar map of the human epigenome. This work will lead to a global map towards understanding fundamental developmental and disease processes in humans. Read more.
