Johns Hopkins has launched an interdisciplinary institute aimed at developing the mathematical theories that will hasten the analysis of the massive amounts of data being used to study everything from the inner workings of the human cell to the structure of the universe.

In late 2017, the Whiting School lost two founding chairs: Robert E. Green Jr. and Gerald M. Masson.
Johns Hopkins University has purchased Baltimore’s historic Stieff Silver complex, making a highly visible symbol of the city’s manufacturing heritage a part of its future in the knowledge economy.
Johns Hopkins engineers are developing a new kind of camera to help self-driving vehicles better detect obstacles and surrounding traffic and prevent accidents.
Engineering principles have influenced a variety of areas, but one that remains relatively untouched is the human brain. Archana Venkataraman aims to change that.
Yannis Kevrekidis and his collaborators work on algorithms that exploit data to enhance, or even circumvent, conventional modeling of chemical and biological systems, and help scientists better predict system behavior—from reaction rates to materials properties.
A team of eight undergraduate and graduate engineering students are developing a system that can shuttle food to hungry customers across the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.
Residents of the tiny Guatemalan village of Chicorral used to struggle up and down a steep ravine to fetch water from a stream for cooking, bathing, and drinking. Thanks to a solar-powered pump installed a few years ago by Johns Hopkins engineers, water now comes directly into their homes via a pipe.
Clark Kent has Superman. Peter Parker has Spider-Man. And Justin Stith has Jay. The Johns Hopkins Blue Jay, that is.
Scientific knowledge—not technical skill —is what engineers need to tackle modern challenges and meet new developments with creativity and innovation. Such was the fervent belief of Robert H. “Rob” Roy ’28.
In “Superfandom,” Zoe Fraade-Blanar and Aaron Glazer describe a symbiotic world where brand owners and brand consumers have converged —a world in which a new class of “superfans” have more clout than ever to shape the brands they love.
KITT.AI has drawn global attention for its pioneering work in natural language processing—algorithms that recognize spoken language.
It’s time to stop using the words “unprecedented” or “one in a pick-your-large-number-year flood” to fool ourselves into believing that we’re experiencing one-off weather that can’t be defended against.
The pace of change here is almost dizzying. In the last year alone, the Whiting School’s footprint on Homewood campus—and slightly beyond—has increased by 20 percent, allowing us to expand our critical core research facilities and world-class laboratories, and add more space for centers and institutes.
