Did you know that our chair of Applied Math & Statistics has a mathematical formula named after him, moonlights as a musician and doesn't like to reveal his middle name?

Without prompt care, a badly wounded soldier can easily bleed to death while being transported to a distant medical station. Two traditional treatments—tourniquets and medicated gauze pads—often cannot stop the blood loss from a deep wound at the neck, shoulder or groin.
To give these soldiers a fighting chance at survival, Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering undergraduates have invented an injectable foam system designed to stop profuse bleeding from a wound where a limb or the head is connected to the torso.

Did recent financial hard times give you a headache -- literally? If so, you're far from alone, according to a study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine co-authored by Whiting School computer scientist Mark Dredze. Dredze and a team of colleagues examined Americans' Google search patterns and discovered that during the recent Great Recession, people searched considerably more often for information on headaches, stomachaches, backaches and other maladies. Read the New York Times story on it here.

David Yarowsky, professor of computer science and a member of the Center for Language and Speech Processing, has been named a 2013 Fellow of the Association for Computational Linguistics. 

The ACL Fellows program recognizes members who have made extraordinary contributions to the field of computational linguistics. Yarowsky, whose research focuses on word sense disambiguation, minimally supervised induction algorithms in NLP, and multilingual natural language processing, is one of only four Fellows selected this year. The ACL recognized him for his significant contributions to word-sense disambiguation, the SIGDAT community, and the development of the decision-list learning method.

“David has amazing intuitions about language, and a gift for identifying key bottleneck problems in his field, as well as in the daily lives of our Center,” said Hynek Hermansky, the Julian S. Smith professor in electrical engineering and the director of the Center for Language and Speech Processing.
