Meeting showcases women in data science

In sharp contrast to the all-male panels that dominate technical meetings, Margot Gerritsen organized a data science conference with only female speakers. More than 170 events in 53 countries held in parallel brought women data scientists together worldwide.

Technique can see objects hidden around corners

Someday your self-driving car could react to hazards before you even see them, thanks to a laser-based imaging technology being developed by Stanford researchers that can peek around corners.

New method for waking up devices

A device that’s turned off doesn’t suck battery life, but it also doesn’t work. Now a low-power system that’s always on the alert can turn devices on when they are needed, saving energy in the networked internet of things.

Algorithm improves integration of refugees

A new machine learning algorithm developed by Stanford researchers could help governments and resettlement agencies find the best places for refugees to relocate, depending on their particular skills and backgrounds.

Students learn to make video games

With mentorship from their professors, alumni and industry professionals, 14 student teams created video games that you can download and play.

Software advances modeling of astronomical observations

Software developed by Stanford astrophysicist Giacomo Vianello models and combines otherwise incompatible astronomical observations. It contributed to recent research into the origin of antimatter near Earth.
