Over the past decade, Carnegie Mellon University has strengthened its standing in the humanities. The Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud to have distinguished faculty and talented students who are leading the humanities into the 21st century.
Faculty and students within the Departments of English, History, Modern Languages and Philosophy focus on teaching and learning deep intellectual knowledge as well as developing useful, practical skills. Often, they cross disciplines to solve real world problems. For example, philosophers are working to improve medical ethics practices and food marketing tactics geared towards children; historians are developing policy recommendations for forensic DNA profiling and drug policy; and, an English professor created a social networking tool to improve education, and it is now being used by tens of thousands of students all over the world.

Lawrence Wetherhold is miserable and misanthropic: he's a widower, a pompous professor at Carnegie Mellon, an indifferent father to a college student and a high-school senior, and the reluctant brother of a ne'er-do-well who's come to town. A seizure and a fall send Lawrence to the emergency room where the physician, a former student of his, ends up going on a date with him. His daughter, Vanessa, lonely and friendless, who's been bonding with his brother, tries to sabotage dad and the doctor's relationship, but Lawrence is good at that without help. Is there any way these smart people can get a life? Can happiness be pursued beneath layers of irony?

The last three weeks, I've had the pleasure of working with the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Group at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. If you noticed that the settings seemed a bit different on some of my previous videos, you were right! I was couchsurfing (google it!) in Pittsburgh the last three weeks. But anyways, back to the MLSP. The MLSP is led by Bhiksha Raj and Rita Singh, and is part of the Language Technology Institute at CMU, which is regarded as pretty much the TOP place for language technology in the world. Pretty cool! Their group has about a half dozen graduate students at the moment. Some of the MLSP's projects are robust speech recognition, source separation, dereverberation, and language processing. For more info, please check out *******ayesha.lti.cs.cmu.edu/mlsp/
MLSP, learning with machines
MLSP, signal processing
If you're looking for the latest research
In language and technology
Then make your way on out to the city of steel
Where you'll find it at the MLSP
At Carnegie Mellon U
in the Language Technology Institute,
Although they're working hard, there's a playfulness in the air
Because everyone's loving what they do
Bhiksha Raj and Rita Singh
Lead their graduate students fearlessly
As a student, you couldn't ask for more
So listen here, you students, what whatcha waiting for!
General Motors R&D and several universities are working on a system that would use data gathered from an array of vehicle sensors and cameras and project images generated by compact ultra violet lasers directly onto the entire surface of the windshield. The GM team is working with Carnegie Mellon University and The University of Southern California, as well as other institutions, to create a full windshield head-up system leveraging night vision, navigation and camera-based sensor technologies to improve driver visibility and object detection ability.

Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space. By Johnny Chung Lee, Carnegie Mellon University.
