  • 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 .

  • 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,...

  • 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,...
