MIT researchers are reproducing paintings using a new system that combines 3-D printing and deep learning.
A joint team of BU-MIT computer scientists reexamined algorithmic fairness, hoping to learn what, if anything, can be done to understand and minimize bias from decision-making systems that depend on computer programs.
MIT engineers have built and flown the first-ever airplane with no moving parts. Instead of propellers or turbines, the light aircraft is powered by an “ionic wind” that is produced aboard the plane.
A new MIT study proposes that laser technology on Earth could be fashioned into something of a planetary porch light — a beacon strong enough to attract extraterrestrial intelligence from as far as 20,000 light years away.
MIT researchers have developed a neural-network model that can analyze raw text and audio data from interviews to discover speech patterns indicative of depression.
MIT researchers report that they have found a way to break spaghetti in two, by both bending and twisting the dry noodles. The researchers say the results may have applications beyond culinary curiosities.
The United States needs to change its focus from merely reacting to China's actions to "building a farsighted national strategy for sustaining American leadership in science and innovation," writes L. Rafael Reif, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in this opinion piece published by The New York Times.
Researchers at MIT have created what may be the smallest robots yet that can sense their environment, store data, and even carry out computational tasks.
MIT’s Cheetah 3 robot can climb stairs and step over obstacles without the help of cameras or visual sensors.
MIT engineers have created soft, 3-D-printed structures whose movements can be controlled with a wave of a magnet, much like marionettes without the strings. The new printing technique could be used to develop remotely controlled biomedical devices.
