Meet the 2023-24 Accenture Fellows

The MIT and Accenture Convergence Initiative for Industry and Technology announces the 2023-24 graduate fellows.

MIT scholars awarded seed grants to probe the social implications of generative AI

The 27 finalists — representing every school at MIT — will explore the technology’s impact on democracy, education, sustainability, communications, and much more.

AI-driven tool makes it easy to personalize 3D-printable models

With Style2Fab, makers can rapidly customize models of 3D-printable objects, such as assistive devices, without hampering their functionality.

Helping computer vision and language models understand what they see

Researchers use synthetic data to improve a model’s ability to grasp conceptual information, which could enhance automatic captioning and question-answering systems.

AI model speeds up high-resolution computer vision

The system could improve image quality in video streaming or help autonomous vehicles identify road hazards in real-time.

System combines light and electrons to unlock faster, greener computing

“Lightning” system connects photons to the electronic components of computers using a novel abstraction, creating the first photonic computing prototype to serve real-time machine-learning inference requests.

How to help high schoolers prepare for the rise of artificial intelligence

A one-week summer program aims to foster a deeper understanding of machine-learning approaches in health among curious young minds.

AI helps robots manipulate objects with their whole bodies

With a new technique, a robot can reason efficiently about moving objects using more than just its fingertips.

Machine-learning system based on light could yield more powerful, efficient large language models

MIT system demonstrates greater than 100-fold improvement in energy efficiency and a 25-fold improvement in compute density compared with current systems.

Artificial intelligence for augmentation and productivity

The MIT Schwarzman College of Computing awards seed grants to seven interdisciplinary projects exploring AI-augmented management.
