Researchers are teaching machines to program themselves in an effort to write faster and more efficient software. The code similarity system (MISM) from Justin Gottschlich and his team have received wide coverage by MIT Technology Review, Intel Newsroom, SiliconANGLE, VentureBeat, ZDNet, The Singularity, The Register, and ~70 other venues.
EMBS Alum, Nicholas Renner, was featured on wired.com (@12:18). For more details, please refer to the link below.
Given the current state of the world, many people have begun working out from home. Our team was awarded a US patent on the innovative yoga mat which allows physical interaction beyond the screen.

Facebook AI advances in their exploration of machine programming by creating a new TransCoder that translates code between different coding languages. Justin Gottschlich was quoted at the end of this article.
Linh Thi Xuan Phan, Associate Professor in CIS, is the recipient of the 2020 Lindback Award. Established in 1961 with the help of the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation, the award is the highest teaching honor bestowed upon faculty at the University of Pennsylvania. The University normally gives out eight Lindback awards each year, divided evenly between health-related disciplines and all other departments and divisions. We congratulate Linh for her leadership, contributions, and devotion to teaching/education.
Dr. Gottschlich sat down with longtime New York Times correspondent Craig S. Smith for their Eye on A.I. podcast (Episode No. 033 - "Software that writes software: toward a future in which everyone can create computer programs") to explain his machine programming research efforts to automate software development. "The ambition is to make it possible for anybody to create software simply by describing what they intend the software to do," wrote the NY Times.
The inaugural issue of ACM Transactions on Computing for Healthcare (HEALTH) is a multi-disciplinary journal which focuses on wearable technologies for smart health. It is now available in the ACM Digital Library. PRECISE Director Insup Lee is honored, humbled and excited to serve as their Co-Editor-in-Chief.
