  • Emily Whiting has a fondness for cathedrals, a proclivity not unrelated to her professional pursuit of computer graphics. As a PhD student at MIT, she worked with architects, an association that led to her affinity for cathedrals and their architectural geometry.

    “Architecture was particular fascinating to me because it is a field that brings in so many different types of expertise,” says Whiting, an assistant professor and the newest addition to the Department of Computer Science. “...

  • This year's Dartmouth Computer Science Research Symposium (CSRS) takes place on May 8th, 2015. It will feature exciting talks, posters, and good food! The event is open to the Dartmouth community, and we will be especially excited to see students -- undergrad and grad, from CS or other departments.

    See CSRS 2015 website for the program and the latest details....

  • The Dartmouth Graduate Studies Office recently held a poster session featuring recent work by Dartmouth graduate students.  Computer Science PhD student Keith Carlson was honored with one of five best poster presentation awards, for his work titled "A Quantitative Analysis of Writing Style on the U.S. Supreme Court."  In this collaboration with Daniel Rockmore (Dartmouth) and Michael Livermore (University of Virginia...

  • Are you interested in working at the intersection of computer science, arts and design? Introducing a new MS Degree in CS with a concentration in Digital Arts Program at Dartmouth College! Open to students from a wide variety of undergraduate majors in areas related to arts, design and technology, students in the new CS/DA program complete a mix of computer science courses, digital arts courses, and research/thesis. They experience a rigorous and focused computer science education,...

  • 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...

  • TEDxBeaconStreet gathers a group of thought leaders from a variety of fields to share their intriguing, actionable ideas. This November, Assistant Professor Emily Whiting spoke about her work in the emerging field of computational fabrication. 3D printers are revolutionizing the manufacturing and design industry, allowing us to create shapes of astounding complexity and precision. Emily Whiting...

  • 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...
