An algorithm that can accurately gauge heart rate by measuring tiny head movements in video data could ultimately help diagnose cardiac disease.
Provost Mark S. Wrighton has announced the resolution of the law suit brought by Professor Cynthia G. Wolff against MIT. The parties have agreed to the following joint statement:
"Professor Wolff and MIT have reached an agreement to resolve the action brought by Professor Wolff and have agreed not to disclose the terms of that agreement. The parties believe that a resolution at this time is in the best interests of MIT and the individuals involved, before the need to determine the merits of the action and in order to move forward as a community. The fact that a resolution was reached, therefore, does not mean that either party attributes blame or concedes merit to the other's position."
