|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.
|NSF Extends Robotics Program for HBCUs|
December 09, 2010. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has extended its support for an alliance of nine major research universities, including Carnegie Mellon University, and 19 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that encourages African American students to pursue graduate training and research careers in robotics and computer science.
|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
