Research in MIT’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department is, arguably, the future.
EECS researchers are designing revolutionary new ways to make chips and using living cells’ electronic properties to develop clinical applications. They are designing a new scheme for quantum money (and doing away with cash altogether) and gaining understanding of human languages through statistical language learning. They are producing transformative knowledge that will affect daily lives this year—and in the future.
So reading the recent EECS newsletter might be a smart way to start 2010. Here are a few places to begin:
- One-Size-Fits-All Wireless Video
- Climbing the Tower of Babel: Advances in Unsupervised Multilingual Learning
- Quantum Money
- EECS Alums: Major Players and Thinkers
