Two Lewis University students in Romeoville explore computer science research topics at conference

ROMEOVILLE— Melanie Harrison, a senior dual-major in Computer Science and Mathematics from Tinley Park and Betsy Langland, mathematics major from Downers Grove, attended the annual OurCS Conference held at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. OurCS stands for Opportunities for Undergraduate Research in Computer Science. Harrison’s group worked on a project called “Does this Post Make Me Look Good?” The project applied machine learning techniques to help predict whether a Facebook post would be positively or negatively received by a person’s Facebook friends. Harrison’s research for the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, which she participated in the summer, also focused on machine learning. Langland’s project, “The Golden Years,” was the creation of a computer system prototype. Langland and her group developed a prototype for a wearable device…
