  • Gregory Wornell, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) has teamed with former RLE member Dr. Maryam Shanechi, who has recently earned her doctorate in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, Prof. Emery Brown of the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department at MIT, and neurosurgeon Dr. Ziv Williams at Massachusetts General Hospital to develop the first instance of an "intelligent" Brain-Motor Interface, which uses specially designed advanced neural decoding algorithms to decode in advance a sequence of planned movements from neural activity in the premotor cortex.
  • EECS PhD candidate Faraz Najafi together with another student (Qingyuan Zhao, Visiting Graduate Student) won first place for the Best Student Poster at the Applied Superconductivity Conference that was held Oct. 7-12, 2012 in Portland, Oregon.
  • MTL Seminar Series, Tuesday, November 13, 2012 34-101 • 4:00pm-5:00pm, Refreshments at 3:30pm in 38-166
  • The MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department held a reception, October 18, to celebrate the official launch of the new SuperUROP undergraduate research program. Members of the inaugural class of the SuperUROP program, sponsors (and donors), MIT administrators who contributed to its implementation, and EECS faculty mentors and guests, joined EECS Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan in the Stata Center R&D Dining area to celebrate. Read more and view photos of the event and the 6.UAR class held just before the reception.
  • Muriel Médard, professor of electrical engineering in the EECS Department at MIT and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) has led a team to develop a new way to guarantee more reliable wireless reception. The team has improved wireless bandwidth tenfold by eliminating resending of dropped packets of data, often the source of network clogging. Read more in the Oct. 23, 2012 Technology Review article by David Talbot titled "A Bandwidth Breakthrough. A dash of algebra on wireless networks promises to boost bandwidth tenfold, without new infrastructure."
  • Calling it a glimpse into the future, technology news website CRN has hailed MIT EECS/CSAIL faculty and the new Wireless@MIT center as the source for seven new technologies that will impact (favorably) our daily lives. Read more...
  • Read the story about the quest for energy storage and a new company that has arisen in this process. Developed in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, a new breed of ultracpacitors that can store twice as much energy and deliver 10 times as much power as conventional capacitors is now being produced for commercial use.
  • Andrea Colaco, MIT Media Lab graduate student and EECS graduate student Ahmed Kirmani were one of five finalist teams in the ACM Student Research Competition at SIGGRAPH 2012 held in Los Angeles, CA, August 5-9, 2012. Colaco and Kirmani's work is titled "CoDAC: Compressive Depth Acquisition Using a Single Time-Resolved Sensor."
