|Carnegie Mellon Joins Launch of Alliance To Mentor African-American Computer Scientists|
May 21, 2013. Carnegie Mellon University has joined Clemson University and five other university partners to launch the Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Science (iAAMCS), a U.S. resource for increasing African-American participation in computing. It includes a robotics competition that will be run by David Touretzky, research professor of computer science.
|Rat Study Suggests Brains Stores Information in Chunks|
June 19, 2012. A rat navigating a maze keeps track of where it’s been and where it’s going using the area of the brain called the hippocampus and updates its path eight times a second, say researchers from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute and the University of Minnesota in a study published online June 17 by the journal Nature Neuroscience.
|New Insight on How the Brain Makes Decisions|
March 11, 2010. Replaying recent events in the area of the brain called the hippocampus may have less to do with creating long-term memories, as scientists have suspected, than with an active decision-making process, suggests a new study by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Minnesota Medical School. Insights from these neural mechanisms may be useful for improving autonomous navigation systems
