Smexting with the oPhone

The evolution of virtual communication has been short but significant. Initially, text messages were just that, text. Then, emoticons were integrated (:D). These days, we can communicate with photos, videos, voice memos, and emojis—you never have to actually type again! Now, thanks to Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences professor David Edwards, a completely necessary new way to communicate is available, the smext.


TERMES Project Models Robots Based on Collective Intelligence of Termites

Though typically associated with the destruction of structures, termite colonies may have just inspired the next big innovation in construction. A team of engineers and computer scientists at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering built a “colony” of autonomous, interchangeable robots—coined the TERMES project—based on the construction strategies of termites and other insect species, according to a report published in Science earlier this month.

In Light of Sequester Cuts, SEAS to Look Elsewhere for Funding

The National Science Foundation is expected to reduce the number of grants for university research from 11,000 to 10,000 per year after this spring’s federal sequester. How this downsizing will affect Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences—which receives 80 percent of its federal monies from NSF, according to school administrators—is still unclear, causing the school to anticipate cuts and to look to finding alternative funding sources.
