Less than 20% of millennials voted in the 2014 U.S. midterm elections. Four MIT students do not attribute this low rate to a lack of concern on part of this demographic, but to a cumbersome and outdated voter registration process. In response, these students have created Votemate, a web app that simplifies and modernizes the registration process.

In a #MOOC setting, productive peer interactions require a system that can detect student behavior in interactions at scale, which is particularly challenging when interactions occur over rich media like video. This presentation from Learning at Scale 2016, by Adam Stankiewicz, introduces an imprecise yet simple browser-based conversational turn detector for video conversations.
