Machine learning speeds up vehicle routing | MIT News
December 10, 2021

Waiting for a holiday package to be delivered? There’s a tricky math problem that needs to be solved before the delivery truck pulls up to your door, and MIT researchers have a strategy that could speed up the solution. The approach applies to vehicle routing problems such as last-mile delivery, where the goal is to deliver goods from a central depot to multiple cities while keeping travel costs down. While there are...

Tiny machine learning design alleviates a bottleneck in memory usage on internet-of-things devices | MIT News
December 9, 2021

Machine learning provides powerful tools to researchers to identify and predict patterns and behaviors, as well as learn, optimize, and perform tasks. This ranges from applications like vision systems on autonomous vehicles or social robots to smart thermostats to wearable and mobile devices like smartwatches and apps that can monitor health changes. While these algorithms and their architectures are becoming more powerful...

EECS graduate women’s research summit increases research visibility and strengthens community | MIT News
December 9, 2021

The MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) group Graduate Women in Course 6 (GW6) held its third annual research summit on Nov. 5, with attendees convening in person along with a simultaneous webcast. The summit featured research lightning talks from graduate women and other underrepresented genders across EECS, as well as a keynote from Institute Professor Barbara Liskov and a panel of five...

Machines that see the world more like humans do | MIT News
December 8, 2021

Computer vision systems sometimes make inferences about a scene that fly in the face of common sense. For example, if a robot were processing a scene of a dinner table, it might completely ignore a bowl that is visible to any human observer, estimate that a plate is floating above the table, or misperceive a fork to be penetrating a bowl rather than leaning against it. Move that computer vision system to a self-driving...

Q&A: More-sustainable concrete with machine learning | MIT News
December 8, 2021

As a building material, concrete withstands the test of time. Its use dates back to early civilizations, and today it is the most popular composite choice in the world. However, it’s not without its faults. Production of its key ingredient, cement, contributes 8-9 percent of the global anthropogenic CO2 emissions and 2-3 percent of energy consumption, which is only projected to increase in the coming years. With aging...

Generating a realistic 3D world | MIT News
December 7, 2021

While standing in a kitchen, you push some metal bowls across the counter into the sink with a clang, and drape a towel over the back of a chair. In another room, it sounds like some precariously stacked wooden blocks fell over, and there’s an epic toy car crash. These interactions with our environment are just some of what humans experience on a daily basis at home, but while this world may seem real, it isn’t. A new...

Anantha Chandrakasan awarded 2022 IEEE Mildred Dresselhaus Medal | MIT News
December 6, 2021

Anantha Chandrakasan, dean of the MIT School of Engineering and Vannevar Bush Professor of EECS, has been named the recipient of the 2022 IEEE Mildred Dresselhaus Medal. In the award citation, the IEEE noted Chandrakasan’s “contributions to ultralow-power circuits and systems, and leadership in academia and advancing diversity in the profession.” Anantha Chandrakasan received BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical...

Toward speech recognition for uncommon spoken languages | MIT News
November 14, 2021

Automated speech-recognition technology has become more common with the popularity of virtual assistants like Siri, but many of these systems only perform well with the most widely spoken of the world’s roughly 7,000 languages. Because these systems largely don’t exist for less common languages, the millions of people who speak them are cut off from many technologies that rely on speech, from smart home devices to...
