Mind reading study connects spatial problem solving with computer science

A group of researchers led by Prof. Westley Weimer and CSE grad student Yu Huang set out to identify how computer scientists think, using real-time fMRI readings to look inside coders brains while they program. This mind reading project studied whether manipulating data structures in a program (like balancing a tree) uses the same parts of the brain as spatial reasoning (rotating a map or turning a key in a lock).

Student team brings augmented reality to the operating room

Three CS students and alumni have launched operating room monitors and screens into the virtual world of augmented reality. Mitchell Bigland (BS CS 2019), Nicholas Keuning (BS CS 2018), and Chase Austin (BS CS expected Fall 2019), working with Dr. David Chesney and Dr. Marcus Jarboe of Pediatric Surgery, have developed an app for the Microsoft Hololens to stream a video feed of a patients internals directly to the surgeons field of vision, helping them keep their eyes on their tools [Full Story]
