Quotes

"'Tackling the Challenges of Big Data' gives a comprehensive overview of big data technologies" said Daniela Rus, the Andrew (1956) and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, director of CSAIL, and co-director of the...
...point in space, you have to determine the specific set of curved arcs needed to get there, which is a tricky task in itself," said Marchese. "Now imagine moving it through a compact space like a pipe, and having a whole array of points that need to be reached over time. That goal makes the underlying programming much more complicated."
"I'm not saying that the world should be filled with robotic octopus tentacles on assembly lines," Marchese says. "I just want to challenge the notion that robots have to look or act a certain way."
...models today you can be one year from now," said Bill Aulet, managing director of the Trust Center, to students sitting in the back of the crowd. "You're going to see what you can be if you go to MIT."
