EECS INGENUITY: News from the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science  

EECS ingenuity is behind new magnetic materials that are advancing computer memory, a new method to help scientists understand habitats of rare or endangered species, and a system to make rock concerts sound better by reducing distortion in speakers. It is also what drives alumni Alex Polvi and Brandon Philips, who are making a splash with their new company, CoreOS. We invite you to take few minutes to read EECS Ingenuity, the e-newsletter for the School of EECS, to find out more about the students, faculty and alumni that are breaking new ground at Oregon State.

Taming Wild Data (not Wild Robots)

Could artificial intelligence take over the world? The question captured media attention recently when Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk joined the debate. Tom Dietterich, president of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and distinguished professor of computer science at Oregon State University, has been at the forefront of the media discussion, giving an academic perspective on the issue. "We will not let AI run the world ... It's a technology that should be used to enhance our humanity," Dietterich said. More...
