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
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
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

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.
