EyeMU Enables Users To Interact With Their Screens Without Lifting a Finger
by Blelloch-Skees Conference Room, Gates Hillman 8115 and Zoom | Monday, April 18, 2022
As more people watch movies, edit video, read the news and keep up with social media on their smartphones, these devices have grown to accommodate the bigger screens and higher processing power needed for more demanding activities.
The problem with unwieldy phones is they frequently require a second hand or voice commands to operate — which can be cumbersome and inconvenient.Read More

His work on deep learning has spanned decades and eventually led to the technology enabling a smartphone to translate foreign languages in near-real time.Read More
Method Could Enable Autonomous Drones To Monitor Safety of Bridges
by Byron Spice | Tuesday, March 1, 2022
Rust never sleeps, and cracking concrete doesn't get a day off either.
The Jan. 28 collapse of Pittsburgh's Fern Hollow Bridge was a dramatic reminder of that fact. The exact cause of the collapse won't be known until the National Transportation Safety Board completes a months-long study, but Carnegie Mellon University researchers have developed autonomous drone technology that someday might prevent similar catastrophes and lesser mishaps caused by deterioration.Read More
