  • 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.
  • Please come to our Informational Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th to hear faculty, researchers, and grad students present on exciting research happenings at CSAIL, and how you can be a part of them! check it out!
  • In the quest for improving the speed and efficiency of multicore chips, EECS Assistant Professor Daniel Sanchez and graduate student Nathan Beckmann designed a system that moves data around multicore chips' memory banks — improving execution by 18 percent on average while increasing energy efficiency as well. They won an award for this work in 2013. Now.. Read more.
  • In building multicore chips, a common inefficiency arises with the addition of more than eight cores. EECS professor Nir Shavit, principal investigator in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), a former student now at Microsoft Research and several EECS graduate students have analyzed data structures called priority codes and dodged logjams using skip code.

  • A record number of Fellow selections from any single institution marks the election by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) of five CSAIL researchers and members of the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department to ACM 2014 Fellow. The ACM has cited Srini Devadas, Eric Grimson, Robert Morris, Ronitt Rubinfeld and Daniela Rus for "providing key knowledge" to computing.
  • Li-Shiuan Peh, professor of electrical engineering and computer science in the EECS Department at MIT has teamed to develop a new system that directs drivers using GPS to avoid traffic congestion. The work won the group one of the best-paper awards at the Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress last week. Read more.
  • Principal investigator in MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab Charles E. Leiserson is the recipient of the ACM/IEEE Computer Society 2014 Ken Kennedy Award, in recognition of his important impact on parallel computing systems. Read more.
  • 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.
  • The potential for multicore computing on a chip has gained new traction with the work by MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department faculty member Li-Shiuan Peh and EECS graduate student Bhavya Daya as they present a new 36-core chip on which each core acts as a mini Internet using a router to complete a communication network for data transport, while keeping local data up to date.
