  • In their recently published 2014 Yearbook, the International Medical Informatics Association named Prof Sean Smith's Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association paper one of the best papers of 2014.  In that paper (, Sean and Prof Ross Koppel (  of Penn built a taxonomy of...

  • 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 geometry, masonry...

  • Travis Peters, a doctoral student in the Department of Computer Science, was selected as one of this year’s recipients of the Graduate Student Teaching Award.

    Peters will be starting his second year as a PhD student this fall. While at Dartmouth, he has had the opportunity to work with Professor David Kotz on two different projects. This past winter, Peters began working on the development of a mobile health intervention application (or “app”) and wearable sensor for the...

  • The Neukom Digital Arts Leadership and Innovation (DALI) lab is a research and development lab in our department, which combines the latest design and technology practices to help non-profits, faculty, centers across campus and businesses communicate effectively. The best and brightest Dartmouth students (undergraduate and graduate) work in small teams of designers, developers and project managers. Learn more at ...

  • From an article by Dartmouth Now

    William H. Neukom, Dartmouth Class of 1964, has committed $10 million to help Dartmouth become a leading academic institution in an important area of teaching and research in the 21st century—analyzing and applying vast sets of data to problems and questions across the academic landscape.

    The William H. Neukom Academic Cluster in...

  • From an article on Dartmouth Now

    “Once upon a time, knowing how to use a computer was virtually synonymous with knowing how to program one. And the thing that made it possible was a programming language called BASIC,” writes Harry McCracken in a TIME article about the history and legacy of BASIC, developed 50 years ago...

  • At 4 a.m. on May 1, 1964, in the basement of College Hall, Professor John Kemeny and a student programmer simultaneously typed RUN on neighboring terminals. When they both got back correct answers to their simple programs, time-sharing and BASIC were born.

    Kemeny, who later became Dartmouth's 13th president, Professor Tom Kurtz, and a number of undergraduate students worked together to revolutionize computing with the...

  • The most recent addition to our department, Dr. Xia Zhou is already making waves, having successfully competed for a Google Faculty Research Award. An article about her and her work was published on Dartmouth Now, which was also featured on the main page...
