a3day1

The MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing will open this fall, and a three-day celebration of the college was held from Feb. 26-28, 2019, to glimpse what's to come. In a tent filled with electronic screens, students and postdocs took turns explaining how they had created something new by combining computing with topics they felt passionate about, including predicting panic selling on Wall Street, analyzing the filler ingredients in common drugs, and developing more energy-efficient software and hardware. The poster session featured undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs from each of MIT’s five schools.

Eight projects were highlighted in this event:

- Low-cost screening tool for genetic mutations linked to autism

- Can deep learning models be trusted?

- Mapping the spread of Ebola virus

- An AI for sustainable, economical buildings

- Robots that understand language

- A deep learning tool to unlock your inner artist

- Preventing maternal deaths in Rwanda

- Do native ads shape our perception of the news?
