  • 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.
  • EECS team, including EECS graduate students and recent graduate, builds software that amplifies motion - to be applied in medical monitoring such as patients' vital signs.
  • Academic programs for graduate students in the field of computer science lead to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Engineer's, and either Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Science degree.
