Study supports Tepper School professor's groundbreaking work in "collective intelligence."
On Nov. 24, Carnegie Mellon University unveiled Andy, a four-wheeled robot designed to scramble up steep slopes and survive the temperature swings and high radiation encountered while exploring the moon's pits, caves and polar ice.
Carnegie Mellon University professor Keith Cook has received a four-year, $2.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support research and development of artificial lungs that patients may use long term in the comfort of their own homes while waiting for a lung transplant. Cook, an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, will lead the project and collaborate with researchers from the University of Washington, Columbia University and Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have developed a novel method for creating self-assembled protein/polymer nanostructures that are reminiscent of fibers found in living cells. The work offers a promising new way to fabricate materials for drug delivery and tissue engineering applications. The findings were published in the July 28 issue of Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
Lab performs open research on fundamentals of secure information systems.
New York University has established a collaborative research initiative with IBM and three other universities to advance the development and deployment of cognitive computing systems.
Recent articles in the Harvard Business Review and New York Times have suggested that the onslaught of "Big Data" has created a new discipline they call data science and a need for specialized data scientists. They even claim that no universities are currently addressing this need with academic programs.
