  • Stephen Malina ’15 and Matt Ritter ’15 worked with the Digital Arts Leadership and Innovation (DALI) Lab and the DEN Innovation Center to develop the first market-based platform for experts in different categories to be discovered. The two hope that Repcoin could become a network as successful as Venmo, Facebook, and other current social websites.

    In November, Malina and Ritter presented Repcoin at The Pitch, sponsored by the DALI Lab and the DEN, before a live audience and a panel of...

  • There are approximately 3.5 billion devices in the U.S. today connected through the Internet—smartphones, laptops, tablets, servers—and by 2020 there will be 45 billion, predicts William Nisen, associate director of the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) at Dartmouth.

    “We are going to have machines talking to machines without human intervention, and unless we get the security right we are going to wind up with a huge...

  • Human cells are protected by a largely impenetrable molecular membrane, but Prof. Gevorg Grigoryan, with a team of collaborators, have built the first artificial transporter protein that carries individual atoms across membranes, opening the possibility of engineering a new class of smart molecules with applications in fields as wide ranging as nanotechnology and medicine. This work, which appeared in the journal Science, is a milestone...

  • From an interview by Joni B. Cole of Dartmouth Now:

    Devin Balkcom, an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, spends a lot of time thinking about the best way to get from here to there. Specifically, he studies the fundamental mechanics of locomotion and manipulation—the interface between robots and the physical world. In a recent conversation, Balkcom, who earned his PhD in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, shared his views on optimal trajectories, knot...

  • Computer scientists at Dartmouth have created artificial intelligence software that uses photos, instead of just text, to locate documents on the Internet, reports The Economic Times.

    “By studying results from text-based image search engines, the software recognizes the pixels associated with a search phrase and applies them to other photos without tags or captions, locating them more accurately,” the newspaper explains .
