An algorithm that can accurately gauge heart rate by measuring tiny head movements in video data could ultimately help diagnose cardiac disease.
The MIT News Office will publish the 2009 Institute Awards issue in print (MIT Tech Talk) and online on June 3 this year. The annual special section lists winners of annual awards, by department, along with photographs where available.
Complete information on how to submit awards is available at web.mit.edu/newsoffice/awards.html, but please note that the deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 22, in order to be included in the awards issue. Do not submit Infinite Mile Awards or awards from outside organizations.
Any and all photographs are also welcomed and can be e-mailed to email@example.com. Please send them as attachments, in .jpg format with a resolution of 300 dpi if possible. Please clearly identify the subjects and include the name of the photographer, as we cannot run them without that information.
