From news to features, your daily dose of everything Penn State.

Innovation in sight: A Penn State-led team received a $10 million Expeditions in Computing award from the National Science Foundation for the development of a machine vision system that replicates human cognitive abilities. The project, says an NSF manager, “holds promise for making momentous impact on society.”

Among the Ivies: Penn State University Libraries rank eighth among North American research libraries, according to a recent report from the Association of Research Libraries. Also in the top 10: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, and Columbia.

Reputation rehab: The New York Times’  Tim Rohan profiles members of the Penn State community, including Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, who are fighting for transparency after the Sandusky scandal — and hoping to change Penn State’s image.

Sandusky hearing: Lawyers for Jerry Sandusky laid out their case for a new trial during Tuesday’s appeal hearing. Attorney Norris Gelman said Sandusky’s former attorney Joe Amendola was forced to “fly blind” and was not given sufficient time to prepare for trial in June 2012.

Love actually: Onward State issued an open call Tuesday asking readers to submit Penn State love stories for publication on the site. Sorry in advance to my officemates — I’ll try to keep it down with all the awww-ing.
