  • Researchers in the laboratory of Anantha Chandrakasan, the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering and head of the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, have developed a Quad HD TV chip which has already demonstrated a fourfold increase in TV screen resolution. The new MIT Quad HD TV chip is being presented this week at the International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco.
  • Researchers in the lab of Anantha Chandrakasan, the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering, including Rahul Rithe, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, have developed a chip which can perform professional quality enhancements of photographs quickly and without draining power on smartphone and digital cameras--cutting out the need for added energy- and time-consuming computational photography systems.
  • In a spotlight for the MIT News Office, Devavrat Shah describes his choice to become a professor of electrical engineering and computer science after a brief foray (while he was a graduate student at Stanford in 1999) at a startup where he found the stimulation of contributing 1% inspiration time was diluted by 99% execution effort.

  • Dept. Head Anantha Chandraksan announced the appointment of Dirk Englund as the Jamieson Career Development Professor. Prof. Englund joined the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department faculty in January 2013 as Assitant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
  • Trying to build a new circuit that would use an emerging technology called compressed sensing has taken on a renewed focus under the work of members of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT including EECS graduate student Omid Abari. With researchers in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT (RLE) and in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) Obari is seeking to balance theory with chip building realities using new evaluation algorithms to allow creation of the ideal circuit.
  • Yury Polyanskiy, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science in the MIT EECS Department (since July 2011) and principal investigator in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT, has been selected for a Career Award by the National Science Foundation. His work titled "Information Theory Beyond Capacity" will advance the state-of-the-art in the fundamental limits of delay-constrained wireless communication, as well as develop abstract topics in information theory on complex graphs.

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan announced on Jan. 21, 2013, the appointment of Professor Gregory Wornell for the Sumitomo Electric Industries Professorship of Engineering. Greg Wornell is a recognized leader in the fields of signal processing and information theory.
  • Victor Zue, the Delta Electronics Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and the director of international relations for the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), has been named the 2012 recipient of the Okawa Prize. Zue was honored for his "pioneering and outstanding contributions to speech science and conversational spoken-language systems."
  • 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.
