IT-E3 Program at UC San Diego

submitted by: alexmatthews
IT-E3 (Information Technology - Engineering and Environmental Education Tools) is a program implemented at the University of California San Diego , now in its second year, aimed at helping bring information technology into middle school classrooms, specifically targeted at gathering environmental data. The goal is to get students interested in so called STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.) The program does this by providing new and innovative technology tools to...

Einstein Robot - UCSD Machine Perception Laboratory

submitted by: alexmatthews
Scientists at UC San Diego's California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) have equipped a robot modeled after the famed theoretical physicist with specialized software that allows it to interact with humans in a relatively natural, conversational way. The so-called "Einstein Robot," which was designed by Hanson Robotics of Dallas, Texas, recognizes a number of human facial expressions and can respond accordingly, making it an unparalleled tool for...
