LSEC Resources

Computational Resources

The lab is equipped with several high end PCs and Macs, but also laser printers and substantial hard disk space. Computational support by the College and University (Dietrich College Computing Services, Computing Services) is outstanding.

Intellectual Resources

Joseph Ramsey, the Department's Director of Computing, the graduate students in Logic, Computation & Methodology, and the Department's faculty provide a wealth of computational experience.

Institutional Connections

LSEC is connected to several other labs and centers at Carnegie Mellon. The Department of Machine Learning combines faculty from Philosophy, Statistics, Computer Science, Robotics, and Language Technologies with a common interest in practically computable methods to learn from data. The Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), has faculty from Philosophy, Computer Science, Design, the Software Engineering Institute, and Psychology with expertise in designing, implementing, and evaluating user interfaces, educational software, and computer mediated interaction in general. The development of web-based courses is being pursued in the context of Carnegie Mellon's Open Learning Initiative (OLI); there are also close interactions with the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center (PSLC) and the Program in Interdisciplinary Educational Research (PIER).
