Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University Announces Executive Changes
Oct 21 15
Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University has appointed Burton Hollifield, PNC Professor of Finance, as the new head of its Undergraduate Business Administration program.
Hollifield has taught financial economics at the undergraduate, master's and doctorate levels at the Tepper School since 1998, specializing in market microstructure, asset pricing, financial intermediation, and empirical methods. In this newly created position, Hollifield will provide strategic direction for the Undergraduate Business Administration Program and implement the newly adopted changes recommended by the curriculum committee that he co-chaired. He also will facilitate the strategic growth of the program while maintaining its strong student services and advising component. In conjunction with Hollifield's appointment, the leadership of the Undergraduate Business Administration program was restructured. Stephen Pajewski has been promoted to acting executive director, overseeing program growth, student advising, and program operations. Pajewski's operational role will complement Hollifield's strategic role in directing the program. In addition, Rubab Jafry O'Connor will serve as the director of the program and will be responsible for advising students, and overseeing student activities and clubs. Pajewski is preceded in his position by Milton Cofield, who will remain on the Tepper School faculty working full-time as a Distinguished Teaching Professor of Business. Also joining the program's staff this fall is Tara Trapani, whose primary role is in academic advising. Trapani is no stranger to Carnegie Mellon, having graduated from the Heinz College Master's in Public Management Program.
IBM Research and CMU Announce Open Platform to Create Smartphone Apps
Oct 20 15
IBM Research and Carnegie Mellon University, or CMU, have announced an open platform to support the creation of smartphone apps that can enable the blind to navigate his surroundings. The IBM and CMU researchers used the platform to create a pilot app, called NavCog, that draws on existing sensors and cognitive technologies to inform blind people on the CMU campus about their surroundings by "whispering" into their ears through earbuds or by creating vibrations on smartphones. The app analyzes signals from Bluetooth beacons located along walkways and from smartphone sensors to help enable users to move without human assistance, whether inside campus buildings or outdoors. Researchers are exploring additional capabilities for future versions of the app to detect who is approaching and what is their mood.
