Swarm robots called "droplets"

CU-Boulder researchers are working to build a swarm of small robots that can work together to accomplish complex tasks. In the future, teams of intelligent robots could be deployed to tackle a number of challenging problems, from containing an oil spill to self-assembling into a piece of hardware after being launched into space.

Congratulations to Doug Smith and his team of CS students on their invitation to the ISC 2013 Cluster Competition! CU is the only US team to be invited to next year's international competition!  Doug has led our teams in every competition so far.

The University of Colorado Board of Regents has approved a new Bachelor of Arts degree in computer science for non-engineering students. The degree is expected to be offered beginning in Fall 2013. For more information, please click here.

Assistant Professor of Computer Science and BioFrontiers faculty member, Debra Goldberg, sees computer science as truly interdisciplinary. Goldberg is a computer scientist by training and a teacher at heart. One of her favorite classroom tactics? Silence, which grabs the attention of sleepy students and pulls them back into the discussion.
