  • Muriel Medard has collaborated with several colleagues to examine the use of two dominating information theories used in today's vast and growing transmission of data while both avoiding noise and demonstrating how to determine the capacities of networks. Medard, California Institute of Technology's Michelle Effros and the late Ralf Koetter of the University of Technology in Munich have addressed some of the toughest issues in a two part paper published recently in IEEE Transactions on Information Theory.
  • EECS faculty members Hari Balakrishnan and Devavrat Shah with EECS graduate students Jonathan Perry, and Amy Ousterhout, and Hans Fugal of Facebook have devised a new system to reduce delay time in data center queues. Using Fastpass, the name given to the new system, the group has experimentally reduced the average queue length of routers by as much as 99.6 percent in a Facebook data center. Read more.
  • EECS faculty members Dina Katabi, director of the Wireless Center at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and CSAIL colleague Robert Miller with EECS graduate students Fadel Adib and Zach Kabalec have collaborated to develop wireless technology to track a person's vital signals such as breathing (heart rate) and more from another room with no need for intrusive wearable technologies.

  • MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) held a two day conference celebrating 50 years of computer science looking forward to the future with solutions for today's obstacles and tomorrow's solutions. Read more.
  • Former associate department head and currently acting director of the Engineering Systems Division Munther Dahleh, professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has been appointed the interim director of the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS), effective July 1. Dahleh is also director-designate of a new entity at MIT that will focus on complex and socio-technical systems, information and decision systems, and statistics.
  • Muriel Médard, professor of electrical engineering and computer science in the MIT EECS Department and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT, has been awarded, with co-authors Josu Bilbao, Aitor Calvo, Igor Armendariz, and Pedro Crespo, the Best Paper Award for their work “Reliable Communications with Network coding in narrowband Powerline Channel.” They presented this work at the IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications (ISPLC 2014) in Glasgow in March.

  • As the director of MIT’s BigData@CSAIL industry initiative, and the co-director of the more research-focused Intel Science and Technology Center (ISTC) for Big Data, EECS professor and CSAIL principal investigator Sam Madden talks with the MIT News Office about the growing complexity of data. From social networks and images to real time financial transactions, Madden talks about the issues (and opportunities) of what to do with this data. Read more.
  • Dina Katabi has been selected for the Andrew (1956) and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. In announcing this appointment, Department Head Anantha Chandraksan shared the following message with his colleagues in the EECS Department. Read more.
  • Muriel Médard has been appointed as the Cecil H. Green Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In announcing this appointment, Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan shared the following message with his EECS colleagues. Read more.
