Robert Krulwich, co-host of RadioLab and a science correspondent for NPR, penned a piece drawing attention to CSAIL Director Daniela Rus’ groundbreaking work in robotics.
 “Somebody should be watching Daniela Rus and her pals at MIT, because what they are doing is so crazy, so potentially important, people need to know about them. Not because they're dangerous, but because what they're doing might be changing the world and nobody should change the world without the world noticing,” wrote Krulwich on his NPR blog “Krulwich Wonders.” “In a nutshell, they are letting machines design themselves — guided, at least for now, by humans.”

NPR’s David Brancaccio reported on the new Wireless@MIT center launched in October 2012, explaining the mission and research underway in the new center based at CSAIL. “This week, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is starting an outfit dedicated to fixing these kinds of problems. It's called the Center for Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing,” reported Brancaccio. Check out the full report here: http://www.marketplace.org/topics/tech/online-game-borrowing-money.

WBUR’s Curt Nickisch covered the kickoff of CSAIL’s new big data initiative on May 30, 2012 and the announcement of CSAIL as the home for the new Intel Science and Technology Center for Big Data. “Intel will spend $12.5 million over the next five years to put some of its researchers in Cambridge alongside brains from MIT. And it’s not just the California chip-maker: AIG, Massachusetts’ own EMC, Thomson Reuters and SAP are all chipping in to partner with MIT,” reported Nickisch.
