The intersection of math, computers, and everything else | MIT News

Shardul Chiplunkar, a senior in Course 18C (mathematics with computer science), entered MIT interested in computers, but soon he was trying everything from spinning fire to building firewalls. He dabbled in audio engineering and glass blowing, was a tenor for the MIT/Wellesley Toons a capella group, and learned to sail.

“When I was entering MIT, I thought I was just going to be interested in math and computer science, academics and research,” he says. “Now what I appreciate the most is the diversity of people and ideas.”

Academically, his focus is on the interface between people and programming. But his

Popular new major blends technical skills and human-centered applications | MIT News

Annie Snyder wasn’t sure what she wanted to major in when she arrived on campus. She drifted toward MIT’s most popular major, electrical engineering and computer science (EECS), also known as Course 6, but it didn’t feel like quite the right fit. She was interested in computer science but more passionate about understanding how technology affects people’s everyday lives.

Snyder, now a junior, found a compelling mix of technical skills and human-centered applications in the major 6-14: Computer Science, Economics, and Data Science, which was jointly launched by the computer science and economics departments in 2017.

The major 6-14 is

Searching for multiplicity, in computer science and daily life | MIT News

Right now, Rodrigo Ochigame is reading Russian science fiction, Yugoslav art history, Indian philosophy, and Afro-Caribbean political theory. They are listening to Belgian electroacoustic music, Mongolian experimental rock, and Ethiopian jazz. Occasionally, the PhD student in the Program in History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society (HASTS) even throws dice to select a new MBTA stop to explore. More often, they apply this practice on the MIT campus, randomly attending departmental seminars on topics ranging from astrophysics to macroeconomics to neurobiology.

Ochigame’s freewheeling curiosity actually stems from a deep conviction about disrupting cultural assumptions — especially their own. “That’s something

Topton L4: Das Netbook ist wieder da: mit 7-Zoll-Display & viel Speicher


Die Zeiten, in denen kleine Laptops die Welt retten sollten, sind lange vorbei. Der chinesische Anbieter Topton bietet jetzt mit dem L4 eine Art modernes “Netbook” an, das ein nur magere sieben Zoll großes Display mit einer moderneren CPU verbindet und relativ günstig ist.

Das Topton L4 fällt vor allem durch seine extrem kleine Größe auf. Da der Hersteller den Preis möglichst niedrig halten soll, ist das 7-Zoll-Display ein einfaches LCD-Panel mit mageren 1024×600 Pixeln, was dann doch schlimme Erinnerungen an frühere Netbooks weckt. Immerhin hat das Display auch einen Touchscreen, sodass man darauf leicht mit dem Finger Eingaben vornehmen

Q&A: Vivienne Sze on crossing the hardware-software divide for efficient artificial intelligence | MIT News

Not so long ago, watching a movie on a smartphone seemed impossible. Vivienne Sze was a graduate student at MIT at the time, in the mid 2000s, and she was drawn to the challenge of compressing video to keep image quality high without draining the phone’s battery. The solution she hit upon called for co-designing energy-efficient circuits with energy-efficient algorithms.

Sze would go on to be part of the team that won an Engineering Emmy Award for developing the video compression standards still in use today. Now an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Sze
