Finding fraud in digital images, recorded Jan. 12, 2006

Associate professor of computer science Hany Farid is interested in detecting whether a digital image has been manipulated. Because digital images are found everywhere today, he explains that his research can be used to examine images to see if they have been tampered with. This has immediate relevance for the fields of law, media, and science. In this podcast, he talks about his work in digital forensics and how it can be implemented. [ More ]

Language instruction, recorded Jan. 17, 2006

On January 5, 2006, President Bush announced that he would ask Congress for $114 million dollars to teach languages critical for national security. The proposal included enhancing language instruction from kindergarten through college. In this podcast, John Rassias, the William R. Kenan Professor of French and Italian, talks about why this proposal is needed, but he questions the motives behind it. [ More ]

Blending medicine and engineering, recorded Jan. 19, 2006

Today, some fields of medicine rely on advances in technology, especially, say, through enhanced imaging techniques or improved artificial joints. In this podcast, Michael B. Mayor, the William N. and Bessie Allyn Professor of Surgery at Dartmouth Medical School and an Adjunct Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering, talks about how his career has blurred the lines between medicine and engineering, and how he thinks this should be the model for the future.
