  • “I know when I’ve had a bad week, but in the moment I might not know the facts that have contributed to me having a poor week. We set out to discover whether there was a way to move the needle from an almost backward way of assessing people’s workplace performance to using more objective measures,” Campbell tells the Washington Post.

    See the teams forthcoming ACM UbiComp 2019 paper on predicting workplace...

  • 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. Those innovations made computing accessible to all Dartmouth students and faculty, and soon after, to people across the nation and the world.

    See the story of BASIC below, or check out the full story at the...
