In May 2014 CSAIL commemorated a half-century of computer science at MIT with "MAC50", a two-day symposium that explored the future of computing, with talks on robotics, artificial intelligence, Big Data, privacy and other pressing topics.

The event featured Ethernet inventor Bob Metcalfe, MIT President L. Rafael Reif and Boston Dynamics co-founder Marc Raibert, among others.

To commemorate the event, we compiled a list of 50 ways that MIT has transformed the field of computer science. These include achievements or notable technologies that either happened at Project MAC (or LCS, the AI Lab or CSAIL), or were spearheaded by MIT EECS alums or lab researchers.
 

Take a look at the list in the above slideshow!
