  • HiLight is the first system that allows screens (e.g., screens of TVs, laptops, tablets, or smartphones) to talk to camera-equipped devices without you knowing it, regardless of the content shown on the screen. It works even upon the dynamic screen content generated on the fly by user interactions (e.g., gaming, web browsing). It removes the need of showing the gangly barcodes (e.g, QR codes) on the screen, so that the screen can display the content as it normally does, while the...

  • A new study by our very own Daniel Rockmore and Keith Carlson and a colleague from the University of Virginia found that the opinions from the highest court in the land are getting longer, easier to understand, and quite a bit grumpier, reports The New York Times.

    The study, writes the Times, uses linguistic software to do a quantitative analysis of Supreme Court opinions.

    Rockmore is the William H. Neukom...

  • 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. “...
