    CSAIL More Future Directions for Selected Topics in Computer Science On May 14 15 2011 CSAIL hosted a workshop at the American Academy of Arts Sciences in Cambridge MA sponsored by the Office of The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering formerly DDR E The goal of the workshop organized by Ed Lazowska U Washington and Victor Zue MIT CSAIL was to provide perspectives on barriers to advancement and potential breakthroughs in the growing and rapidly evolving field of computer science More All In A Day s Work Design and Print Your Own Robot An elderly woman who lives alone needs assistance with everything from remembering to take her medicine to putting away the dishes Her children work fulltime and are only able to assist her on nights and weekends To assist her mother during those daytime hours when she is all alone her daughter goes to her local printing store designs a handy device that can help around the house and 24 hours later delivers her mother a fully assembled and operational robot More MERS Tackles The Human Robot Divide You might not have to wait until 2062 to travel to work in an aerocar like George Jetson thanks to work currently underway at CSAIL An autonomous personal air taxi capable of ferrying you to Paris by 5pm with a flyover of London may sound futuristic but it is a current project of CSAIL Principal Investigator Brian Williams and his Model based Embedded and Robotic Systems MERS group More Unlocking The Key To Human Intelligence What if machines could think like us comprehending social cues visual prompts and spoken words just like a human would For CSAIL Professor Patrick Winston the Ford Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science and leader of the Genesis Group at CSAIL uncovering the true nature of human intelligence is the next grand challenge More Health Care of the Future In 1974 Professor Peter Szolovits made a prediction By the 1980s a majority of large hospitals would have adopted the use of electronic medical records While the necessary technology did not progress as quickly as expected to allow for this transition the U S government is currently making a major push to ensure that hospitals switch from paper folders stuffed with memos to a secure and efficient electronic system for collecting storing and retrieving medical records Now Szolovits the leader of the Clinical Decision Making Group at CSAIL is at the forefront of the movement to make health IT more effective and useful for both professionals and patients More Computation and the Transformation of Practically Everything In 2011 MIT celebrates a century and a half of excellence in education and technological innovation with a series of six MIT150 Symposia in which we will explore past milestones and look toward future advancements More Zooming in With Computational Photography Remember the Polaroid camera that black box capable of spitting out an image within seconds of snapping the shutter Once the star of social gatherings
