  • Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department PhD candidate Alec Rivers, working with EECS Associate Professor Fredo Durand and MIT Mechanical Engineering Department PhD candidate Ilan Moyer will be presenting a new digitally driven method for creating precise shapes with minimal human guidance at this week's Siggraph conference in Los Angeles.
  • Jonathan Ragan-Kelley, EECS graduate student and Andrew Adams, a CSAIL postdoc, have led the development of Halide, a new programming language for image-processing algorithms. Halide not only yields code that’s much shorter and clearer — but it is much faster and is now available online. At this month’s Siggraph, the premier graphics conference, Ragan-Kelley and Adams will present a paper on Halide, which they co-wrote with EECS faculty members Professors Saman Amarasinghe and Fredo Durand and with colleagues at Adobe and Stanford University.
  • With the goal of developing an aircraft that can fly like a bird, quickly darting around fixed and moving objects, EECS Associate Professor Russ Tedrake as lead of a five-year multi-research initiative, has created a new autonomous flying aircraft that is coming very close to this reality. This work, carried out in Tedrake's lab by his group, the Robot Locomotion Group in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) is featured on the CSAIL website.
  • Daniel Jackson, professor of computer science and engineering in the EECS department, principal investigator in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, CSAIL, head of the CSAIL Software Design Group, and MacVicar Faculty Fellow is also an avid photographer. His work featuring black and white photos of labs at MIT and titled 'Dark Machines: Inside MIT's Laboratories' is now on exhibit (through Dec. 31, 2012) at the MIT Museum.
  • Shafi Goldwasser, the RSA professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT and principal investigator with the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, is among three at MIT selected as Simons Investigator by the Simons Foundation.
  • Victor Zue, the Delta Electronics Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and former Director of the Institute's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) from 2007 - 2011 (and co-director of CSAIL since its inception in 2004), is the recipient of the 2013 IEEE James L. Flanagan Speech and Audio Processing Award. He is cited "for pioneering contributions to acoustic phonetics and conversational spoken-language systems."
  • Professor of applied math and computer science at MIT and head of the Computation and Biology Group, Bonnie Berger, with former and current students, has developed an algorithm that allows researchers to access huge amounts of data in geneome databases despite the rate of genome sequencing that threatens to outpace researchers' ability to analyze the added data.
