The MIT Laboratory for Computer Science (LCS) is an
interdepartmental laboratory whose principal goal is research in
computer science and engineering. It is dedicated to the invention,
development and understanding of information technologies which are
expected to drive substantial technical and socio-economic change.
Currently, LCS is focusing its research on the architectures of
tomorrow's information infrastructures. In the interest of making
computers more efficient and easier to use, LCS researchers are
putting great effort into human-machine communication via speech
understanding; designing new computers, operating systems, and
communications architectures for a networked world; and automating
information gathering and organization.
