Professor Tod Machover and Assistant Professor Cynthia Breazeal of the Media Lab are two of 80 designers and firms represented in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum's Second "National Design Triennial: Inside Design Now" on view through Jan. 25, 2004. Visitors can sample Machover's Hyperscore software, which allows even the musically challenged to compose complex pieces by drawing on a computer screen. Breazeal's project explores artificial intelligence in a generation of robots that mimic plant and animal traits.
