MCLA's Department of Computer Science had a strong showing at the 2012 Undergraduate Research Conference. Five Computer Science students presented their work, which focused on the limits of parallel computing and the application of Bioinformatics to Human Computer Interaction.
This spring (2012), student Michael Wheelock went the extra mile as part of a class assignment in Sever-Side Development. When challenged to create a maze game that automatically generated a randome maze, Michael did not hesitate.
Behavior traces contain a wealth of information about how users perform tasks. Unfortunately, analyzing these traces by hand can be time consuming. Working on his independent study with Professor Cohen (Spring 2012), Sean Ezrol borrowed ideas from bioinformatics to analyze traces automatically.
