  • EECS graduate students Andrew Spielberg and Stuart Baker, and postdoc Mehmet Dogar with EECS Professor and Director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) Daniela Rus have developed a new algorithm that significantly reduces the time it takes for several robots to plan and execute a task. Read more.
  • A computer vision enabled technology developed by a team of EECS faculty Bill Freeman and Frédo Durand and their students is enabling a new way to identify structural defects in objects. The group will report this latest work at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition in June. Read more.
  • EECS doctoral student Carrie Cai has devised a Google Chat extension to help users make the most of idle wait time between texts and instant-message replies. Termed WaitChatter, the app allows users to learn another language vocabulary while they wait and the app is adaptable to other IM platforms including Snapchat, Facebook, Skype and WhatsApp. Read more.
  • EECS Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan and Associate Heads Silvio Micali and David Perreault have announced the appointments of Tamara Broderick as the ITT Career Development Assistant Professor and of Stefanie Jegelka as the X-Consortium Career Development Assistant Professor. Both Broderick and Jegelka joined the MIT EECS Department in January, 2015. Read more.
  • Members of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab's (CSAIL's) Computer Graphics Group including Professors Frédo Durand and William Freeman and EECS graduate student YiChang Shih have developed an algorithm that removes reflections from photos taken through windows. Read more.
  • While they developed the most accurate scene recognition system, Profs. Antonio Torralba and Aude Oliva have shown how object recognition along with scene recognition could be mutually reinforcing. They will present their work at the International Conference on Learning Representations... Read more.
  • Is it still an either-or choice to receive (or not) all those mailing list emails? EECS graduate student Amy Zhang working with EECS Prof. David Karger in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab's Haystack Group, has developed a new system that uses techniques from social media to give the recipient more control over his/her inbox. Read more.
  • EECS faculty members Fredo Durand and William Freeman have teamed with Oral Buyukozturk, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at MIT, to develop an alternative technique for detecting tiny vibrations in large structures using high-speed video and computer vision techniques for magnifying motion. Read more.
  • Students and graduates of Prof. Rob Miller's group, the User Interface Design Group have designed a system for visualizing and exploring thousands of solutions to a programming problem, ultimately enhancing online teaching and learning. Members of the group including first author and EECS graduate student Elena Glassman will present their work in April at the Association for Computing Machinery's Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. 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.
