SCS Researchers Learn Much From In-Home Test of Adaptive Robot Interface 03/02/2024

Two Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science students tested their adaptive robot interface during a weeklong trial in the Bay Area home of Henry and Jane Evans.

Henry, who has quadriplegia, spent the week wearing the Head-Worn Assistive Teleoperation (HAT), which allows users to control a mobile robot via head motion and speech recognition.

Henry used HAT for tasks such as fetching a drink, feeding himself and scratching an itch, and concluded that the system made certain tasks more manageable than depending on a caregiver.

SCS Researchers Learn Much From In-Home Test of Adaptive Robot Interface Head-Worn Assistive Teleoperation (HAT) — an experimental interface to control a mobile robot designed by students at Carnegie Mellon University, requires fewer fine motor skills than other interfaces to help people with some form of paralysis or similar motor impairments control a mobile robot an...

American Historical Association Honors Joe Trotter and CMU Alumna Jackie Wu 02/19/2024

Carnegie Mellon alumna Jackie Wu and her former professor Joe Trotter were recently honored by the American Historical Association for their social justice work and research that began in Trotter's course, “African Americans, Imprisonment, and the Carceral State."

Throughout the course, Trotter was struck by the way Wu connected themes to her experience as an Asian American. She inspired her class to think more broadly about the African American experience and its connection to other minority groups in the U.S.

As a business student in Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon, Wu eventually declared an additional major in social and political history after taking Trotter's class. She is now pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of History at Yale University.

“Not a week goes by where I don't think about how special it is to work at CMU with this legacy.”

Submitted on behalf of their daughter and Carnegie Mellon staff member Miriam Wertheimer, Rick and Sarah Wertheimer met at CMU in 1974, starting a decade-long love story and Tartan legacy.

Rick came to CMU from Cleveland to study mathematics, and Sarah came from Maryland and had a self-defined major entitled "Writing and Design.”

As Sarah tells it, the pair met at a coffee house on campus after being introduced by Rick’s then-girlfriend. Not long after they found themselves single, and made it official by Spring Carnival! The summer before Sarah’s senior year, the couple got married.

They fell in love with each other, and the city of Pittsburgh, working in education and nonprofits over the past 50 years. Rick taught in Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy and did research with Carnegie Learning. Their daughter, Miriam currently works in the Leonard Gelfand Center.

“You don’t need to be a magnet engineer to know that opposites do attract.” 🧲

Jay Kapoor and Prerna Singh, Tepper School of Business graduates, met through the business club SIFE during their time at CMU. Initial flirtations turned into real friendship through Craig Street lunch dates and late evenings working on group projects at Hunt Library.

After graduation, their friendship remained but jobs took them to opposite coasts. One day, a chance encounter rekindled college feelings. Jay stepped out of a Lyft in San Francisco only to see Prerna walking down the street. As if fate had brought them together, Prerna shared she was moving to NYC that summer and promised to meet up, where they started dating shortly after.

CMU alumni Prerna and Jay got married in Grand Cayman in May 2022 and recently welcomed their first child and future Tartan: Aveer Prem Kapoor!
