In Pokemon Go you can drop virtual characters into the real-world. But our PhD's new technology goes a step beyond that by enabling virtual objects to more realistically interact with their environments, like bouncing off bushes.

"Interactive Dynamic Video" has many possible uses, from filmmakers producing new kinds of visual effects to architects determining if buildings are structurally sound: bit.ly/2aZzGBn

That is really cool. I can see how any virtual simulation or augmented reality application would benefit from this.

(Also, the dancing at the end of the video was amusing :)

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our lab's founders Robert "Bob" Fano, 98.

53 years ago this month he founded Project MAC, an effort to develop time-sharing systems that allowed multiple people to use a computer at the same time.

Project MAC helped pave the way for the more widespread use of computers in society, and later evolved into the Lab for Computer Science, which then became CSAIL. More: bit.ly/29N4AyT

A CSAIL team just developed an algorithm that produces fake sounds that are realistic enough to fool human viewers.

This “Turing Test for sound” represents more than just a clever computer trick - researchers picture it being used to automatically produce movie sound effects, as well as to help robots better understand objects’ properties. More: http://bit.ly/234zyEH

New AR tech lets you reach in & touch objects in videos. Read more about "Interactive Dynamic Video": http://bit.ly/2aZzGBn #VR
Technique from Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab could improve augmented reality and reduce the need for CGI green-screens.

New communication network rivals the anonymity of Tor - and allows for file-sharing that's 10x faster: http://bit.ly/29JtpdB
Network can protect users’ anonymity if all but one of its servers are compromised.

Could computer science help us learn the causes of cancer and obesity?

CSAIL's Manolis Kellis is on Reddit today to answer your questions about mapping the epigenome and what it could mean for the future of health. Ask him anything! http://bit.ly/28XxPy8

Turn any smartphone into an eye-tracking system!

Besides making eye-tracking more accessible, the software developed by CSAIL and the University of Georgia could enable new computer interfaces or help detect signs of neurological disease or mental illness: http://bit.ly/1sHLPCx

Introduction

The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory – known as CSAIL - is the largest interdepartmental laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and one of the world’s most important centers of computer science and information technology research.  The lab has played a major role in the technology revolution of the past 50 years. Currently, CSAIL is focused on conducting groundbreaking research in artificial intelligence, computer systems, and the theory of computation, while also tackling pressing societal challenges such as education, health care, manufacturing and transportation.

 

CSAIL makes its home in the Frank Gehry-designed Stata Center on the MIT campus, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2013.
