CIM-REPARTI member Professor Tal Arbel featured in Dean's Report - Fall 2011 - bio-engineering is booming at McGill! by Marlene Gray — last modified 2012-02-01 20:45
CIM-REPARTI member Professor Tal Arbel and members of her group at CIM are featured in the Faculty of Engineering Dean's Newsletter Fall 2011. Bioengineering is booming at McGill! Professor Arbel's Probabilistic Vision Group works with Montreal Neurological Institute researcher Louis Collins to find ways to match ultrasound images acquired during brain operations to the pre-op MRI, thus providing the surgeon with updated MRI pictures to use for guidance — pictures that have been corrected for the shift. Her lab is also collaborating with Collins and Dr. Doug Arnold, a neurologist, to develop new imaging techniques for multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease that attacks and leaves lesions in the brain, predominantly in the white matter.

GAZETTE: Feb. 20/09: Teaching the World to Sing as One - Live Opera in Cyberspace with CIM's Jeremy Cooperstock by Marlene Gray — last modified 2009-03-04 11:56
TEACHING THE WORLD TO SING - AS ONE An ambitious experiment at McGill University is trying to bring live opera to cyberspace, through an unlikely pairing of engineers and classical singers. The idea is to simulate what it would be like if each were performing in different countries simultaneously over the Net for millions of spectators. The World Opera Project, the brainchild of Norwegian historian and opera aficionado Niels Lund, who was also on hand for the experiment Wednesday, hopes to be able to broadcast such an online opera by 2012. For the engineers, the project is about serving the artists' technological needs. But opera's jump into 21st century technology would also provide lessons for less challenging cyber-endeavours, improving everything from video conferencing to telesurgery, said Jeremy Cooperstock, an engineer with McGill's Centre for Intelligent Machines.
CIM IN THE NEWS: GAZETTE July 21, 2008: SURVIVAL OF THE MACHINES: SINGULARITY by Marlene Gray — last modified 2009-03-04 11:50
SURVIVAL OF THE MACHINES: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SINGULARITY In the movie The Terminator, set in the not-too-distant future, computers become smart enough to break free of the tyranny of their human masters. Of course, the computers round up and kill the humans. It doesn't look like a lot of fun in the movie. A few researchers at McGill's Centre for Intelligent Machines are working toward a moment that feels inspired by science fiction: a tipping point when smart computers themselves become capable of creating smarter computers, at a speed and in a direction we cannot predict. That moment is the Singularity. Among the scientists who see the Singularity as, at least, plausible is Benoit Boulet, a robotics researcher and director of the McGill Centre for Intelligent Machines. Boulet's colleague at CIM, Jeremy Cooperstock, teaches AI at McGill. He has a more guarded view of the Singularity than does Boulet, but, as he explains, "The potential for one of these areas to do harm is such that we should look at these doomsday scenarios and consider them."
