A college for the computing age | MIT News

The mission of the MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing is to address the opportunities and challenges of the computing age — from hardware to software to algorithms to artificial intelligence (AI) — by transforming the capabilities of academia in three key areas: supporting the rapid evolution and growth of computer science and AI; facilitating collaborations between computing and other disciplines; and focusing on social and ethical responsibilities of computing through combining technological approaches and insights from social science and humanities, and through engagement beyond academia.

Since starting his position in August 2019, Daniel Huttenlocher, the inaugural dean of

Center to advance predictive simulation research established at MIT Schwarzman College of Computing | MIT News

Understanding the degradation of materials in extreme environments is a scientific problem with major technological applications, ranging from spaceflight to industrial and nuclear safety. Yet it presents an intrinsic challenge: Researchers cannot easily reproduce these environments in the laboratory or observe essential degradation processes in real-time. Computational modeling and simulation have consequently become indispensable tools in helping to predict the behavior of complex materials across a range of strenuous conditions.

At MIT, a new research effort aims to advance the state-of-the-art in predictive simulation as well as shape new interdisciplinary graduate education programs at the intersection of computational science and

Almost 7,000 laptops are ready to be given to youngsters in South Yorkshire after a campaign by councils, schools and charities.

Sheffield charity Laptops for Kids said it now has enough child-friendly Dell laptops to supply most of the region and the computers will be used for pupils needing to access remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

The charity launched in Sheffield in September 2020 because many households were unable to take part in online lessons. The project has now expanded to other northern towns and cities.

The devices will now be distributed to schools by councils in Barnsley, Doncaster,
