  • 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.
  • 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!
  • This week, at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE's) International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the group of Anantha Chandrakasan, EECS Department Head and the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor in Electrical Engineering at MIT, will present a new transmitter design that reduces power leakage when transmitters are idle — greatly extending battery life and ultimately enabling the potential for the transmission of data needed for the "Internet of things".

  • Five members of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of a total of eight MIT faculty have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering including Hari Balakrishnan, Sangeeta Bhatia, Anantha Chandrakasan, L. Rafael Reif and Daniela Rus. Read more.
  • Vivienne Sze, core member of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) and the Emanuel E. Landsman (1958) Career Development Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS), has received a 2014 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award (YFA).

  • 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.
  • Professor Ruonan Han joined the EECS department at MIT as an assistant professor in July 2014. As a principal investigator with the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), Han will pursue work in ultra-high-speed circuits and systems. His research group, the Terahertz Integrated Electronics Group aims to explore microelectronic technologies to bridge the terahertz gap between microwave and infrared domains. Read more.
  • Getting to the source of data-visualization aberrations is a big problem in big data. EECS doctoral student Eugene Wu with Sam Madden, professor of computer science and engineering in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have released a new tool, called DBWipes, that pinpoints aberrations and determines which data sources to investigate.
