Defying the Laws of Physics? Columbia Engineers Demonstrate Bubbles of Sand

A recent discovery by Columbia Engineering researchers explains a new family of gravitational instabilities in granular particles of different densities that are driven by a gas-channeling mechanism not seen in fluids. The team observed an...

A Step Closer to Self-Aware Machines

Columbia Engineers have created a robot that learns what it is, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics. Initially the robot has no clue what its shape is. After a brief period of “babbling,” and within about a day of...
