A large, perhaps dominant, part of our computing future will be wireless and mobile. To realize that future, CSAIL researchers are developing novel solutions to four challenges: dramatic improvements in spectrum use, systems to develop and run distributed mobile applications at scale, security and privacy in the mobile world, and energy-efficient designs. These efforts are part of the MIT Center for Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing, housed at CSAIL, whose participants also include researchers from LIDS, MTL, and RLE.

To solve the data deluge, CSAIL researchers will be investigating how to transform big data into big insights. CSAIL members will explore all the challenges and opportunities presented by big data, from cloud computing, data management, massive scale data analysis, algorithms, data mining, machine learning, security, privacy and visualization to all of big data’s applications in fields such as finance, medicine, biology, artificial intelligence and social networking.

Communications Mission

The Communications Team is dedicated to promoting CSAIL research, innovations, events and lab members to the CSAIL community and the general public. The team publishes news and feature articles, photographs and videos to publicize the lab, utilizing social networking and working closely with the MIT News Office to help promote CSAIL research to reputable news organizations.
