UROP Research Opportunities
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) cultivates and supports research partnerships between MIT undergraduates and faculty. If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or take a look at the How to UROP at CSAIL document (pdf format).
This program is available to MIT students only.
DP1 6.033. Implement a file system that provides provence tracking. If a user changes a slide in, say, an open office presentation, the system should be able to tell all other files that have a copy of that slide. This project involves kernel hacking in Linux.

Extend the EECS system for receiving and reviewing graduate admission applications to use machine learning algorithms to speed up the reviewing cycle. There are a few different directions that project could go, and your job is to find out what the direction to go and pursue that. This project involves analyzing data sets for several years, investigating what features to analyze and what machine algorithms to use, and implementing a design in a python-django-based Web site. Interested candidates may contact Frans Kaashoek, email@example.com, Robert...Posted date: March 27, 2012
Description: ICU dashboards often overload physicians by displaying an enormous amount of patient's information but fail to provide a snapshot or a summarized patient's story that physicians can understand at a glance. Visual analytics based on Artificial Intelligence can be a powerful way to simplify complexity in clinical decision making. We have recently developed an unsupervised learning algorithm to create insightful visualizations of patient severity in real time. The student will engage in our ongoing effort in building better visualization systems for massive health data. This...Posted date: March 27, 2012
The MIT Model-based Embedded & Robotic Systems (MERS) group is looking for talented and motivated undergraduate or MEng students to join us in our effort to push the boundaries of robotic manufacturing. Working in close collaboration with the Boeing company, our goal is to develop the technologies that will release manufacturing robots from their current repetitive tasks in highly structured environments and bring them to fluid and natural interactions with humans co-workers on the factory floor. We are seeking for students with a CS background that will help us develop our current...Posted date: March 24, 2012
The Haystack Group develops tools to help people better manage the information they deal with every day. Using methods from Databases, Machine Learning, and Human Computer Interaction, we develop a variety of tools to help people find, organize, author, publish, and share information. We build tools for the desktop and for the web. We run many ongoing projects that could benefit from UROP participation:
