At Ohio University, faculty member Basil Masri Zada has dedicated the past several years to helping develop the coursework for the new concentration in the School of Art and Design, Digital Arts + Technology. This area of study focuses on the constantly developing relationship between technology and art and allows students to develop their own approaches to creating art in an increasingly digital age.

Rosie the supercomputer

In 2019, the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) unveiled a major addition to its campus: the Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall, featuring Rosie the supercomputer. The facility opened in the wake of the launch of MSOE’s bachelor’s degree in computer science, with a curriculum focused on the growing field of artificial intelligence.
