Caption:Anantha Chandrakasan, dean of the School of Engineering and the Vannevar Bush Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has been named as MIT’s first chief innovation and strategy officer.
Marc Baldo, Jacopo Buongiorno, and Hsiao-hua Burke, along with 13 additional MIT alumni, are honored for significant contributions to engineering research, practice, and education.
The advanced fabrication tools will enable the next generation of microelectronics and microsystems while bridging the gap from the lab to commercialization.
Awarded $65.67 million from ARPA-H, the researchers will work to develop ingestible capsules that deliver mRNA and electric stimuli to treat metabolic disorders such as diabetes.
How symmetry can come to the aid of machine learning
Exploiting the symmetry within datasets, MIT researchers show, can decrease the amount of data needed for training neural networks.
Scientists develop a low-cost device to make cell therapy safer
A plastic microfluidic chip can remove some risky cells that could potentially become tumors before they are implanted in a patient.
Device could jumpstart work toward quantum internet
Solves paradox associated with transmission of quantum information
The ambient light sensors responsible for smart devices’ brightness adjustments can capture images of touch interactions like swiping and tapping for hackers.
A Tetris Space Race
Computer science and engineering major Justin “Fractal” Yu shares his perspective on the game-breaking acheivement of fellow Classic Tetris player BlueScuti–and shares the behind-the-scenes space race that lead them both to new achievements.
