Undergraduate students Steven Feng and Shannon Veitch have each received a prestigious honorable mention for their research from the Computing Research Association. The annual CRA awards program recognizes undergraduate students from universities across North America who show outstanding research potential in an area of computing science.
Researchers in artificial intelligence have developed an innovative way to identify a range of anti-social behaviour online. The new technique, led by Alex Parmentier, a master’s student at Waterloo’s David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, detects anti-social behaviour by examining the reaction to a post among members of an online forum rather than examining features of the original post itself.
Researchers at the David R. Cheriton Cheriton School of Computer Science have created a device for wearable computer input suitable for many situations, just by touching your fingertips together in different ways.
Called Tip-Tap, the device is inexpensive and battery-free because it uses radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to sense when fingertips touch. The device could be added to disposable surgical gloves, allowing surgeons to access preoperative planning diagrams in an operating room.
