Engineering, Coding and Musical Instruments

Digital music is not a subject you would typically learn about in an engineering class. However, McCormick School of Engineering Professor Bryan Pardo has integrated coding, music performance, design thinking and instrumentation into a class he taught last Spring. We were asked by the Digital Learning website to film the final presentations of students, who had worked all quarter to create a new digital instrument. The video we created, as well as more information about the class, can be found on the Digital Learning website.

Do Personality Types Actually Exist?

Two months ago, we were approached by Northwestern researchers Luis Amaral, William Revelle and Martin Gerlach to create a video about their study on human personality. The team used new techniques to interpret data from 1.5 million individual online personality surveys. What did they uncover? Four new groups of human personality “types.”
