Introducing CSAIL to the Class of 2014
Last week, the undergraduate class of 2014 got their first comprehensive look at MIT. During this year's Campus Preview Weekend, incoming freshmen and their families turned out in droves to get the inside scoop on CSAIL.
Following an introduction by Director Victor Zue, a series of Principal Investigators and graduate students discussed their respective fields of research. The lineup included:
- Professor Seth Teller, head of the Robotics, Vision, and Sensor Networks Group
- Associate Professor Rob Miller, head of the User Interface Design Group
- Luca F. Bertuccelli, a Postdoctoral Associate in the Humans and Automation Lab
- Tammy Riklin Raviv, a Postdoctoral Associate in the Medical Vision Group
- Anima Singh, a graduate student in the Networks and Mobile Systems Group
- Patrick Conrad, a graduate student in the Model-based Embedded & Robotic Systems Group
In the course of the talks, incoming students learned about everything from autonomous forklifts to robots designed to assist astronauts in exploring extraterrestrial terrain.
