Coordinating complex behaviors between hundreds of robots

In one of the more memorable scenes from the 2002 blockbuster film Minority Report, Tom Cruise is forced to hide from a swarm of spider-like robots scouring a towering apartment complex. While most viewers are likely transfixed ...

Building a path to extreme-scale computing

High-performance computing (HPC), typically used for solving advanced problems through modeling, simulation, and analysis, is increasingly deployed in scientific and engineering research. In addition to compute-intensive ...

Could your computer please be more polite? Thank you

In a tense time when a pandemic rages, politicians wrangle for votes and protesters demand racial justice, a little politeness and courtesy go a long way. Now researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed an automated ...

Analysis of complex geometric models made simple

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed an efficient new way to quickly analyze complex geometric models by borrowing a computational approach that has made photorealistic animated films possible.

New scanning method turns object inside out at high speed

What if you could watch a CT scan live, rather than analyzing the images afterward? Thanks to the work of Leiden mathematician Jan-Willem Buurlage, that will soon be reality. He is developing methods to make the algorithms ...

Computational model decodes speech by predicting it

The brain analyzes spoken language by recognizing syllables. Scientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the Evolving Language National Centre for Competence in Research (NCCR) have designed a computational model ...
