  • Researchers at DartNets Lab are experimenting with first "smart spaces" that use ubiquitous light for both data communication and human sensing.

    The project features an interplay of algorithms, ceiling-mounted Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs), and light sensors embedded in floors and in smart devices. Such smart spaces track users' gestures and separate shadows from light, enabling a continuous flow of data wirelessly not only between personal computers, but smart devices in rooms,...

  • Professor Thomas Cormen posted an answer to the following question on the social media site quora.com: "What can I learn right now in just 10 minutes that could improve my algorithmic thinking?" His answer has received over a thousand "upvotes" and has since been featured on Forbes.com. And so, what can...

  • Professor Scot Drysdale is eager to help students with the material in his COSC10 class, Problem Solving via Object-Oriented Programming. Photo by Prof Andrew Campbell, with light digital retouching by Prof Gevorg Grigoryan.

     

  • The Pitch is a chance for members of the Dartmouth community to share their ideas, research, and innovations in hopes of receiving venture, design, development, and/or funding support. Each project has two minutes to share their project proposal with a panel of live judges from the Digital Arts Leadership and Innovation Lab (DALI), DEN, and a live audience. Winners of The Pitch will be chosen by both the judges and the audience.

    The Pitch presents a unique opportunity for people to...

  • Graduate students Tianxing Li, Chuankai An, and Professors Andrew Campbell and Xia Zhou are awarded the Best Paper Award at ACM VLCS'14 for their work on advancing screen-to-camera communication.

    We are all familiar with QRCodes: a coded image shown on the screen (e.g., smartphone screens, TVs), which can then be captured by a phone camera and translated into data.

    The new system called HiLight removes the need of...

  • Sergey Bratus and Felix 'FX' Lindner delivered a joint invited talk at this year's USENIX Security Conference. This premier conference brings together attendees from academia, industry, and government.

    The talk entitled "Information Security War Room" examined the state of IT security, the implications of the ongoing computer insecurity epidemic for national security and "cyberwarfare", the current misguided attempts of...

  • Much of the stress and strain of student life remains hidden. The StudentLife study led by Professor Andrew Campbell built a smartphone sensing app that 48 computer science students used over 10 weeks of the spring term 2013. It revealed a number of interesting findings.  Researchers found that objective sensing data from the students' phones significantly correlated with academic performance and mental-health, such as, grades, GPA, stress,...

  • Our own Lorenzo Torresani has won the Google Faculty Research Award. Dr. Torresani aims to use deep learning (i.e., learning of deep networks) to discover compact representations of video that work well for classifying human pose dynamics.

    Dr. Torresani proposed to learn semantic primitives to represent human actions in video. The primitives are learned by training deep convolutional neural networks to classify different human pose...

  • Three new faculty members are joining the Computer Science department--Emily Whiting, Wojciech Jarosz, and Qiang Liu. Emily Whiting will be on campus starting this coming Fall 2014, and Wojciech Jarosz and Qiang Liu will join us in the Fall of 2015.

    Emily Whiting completed her postdoctoral training at ETH Zurich, prior to which she received both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from MIT. Her research interests include architectural...
