CREATING THE NEXT IN RESEARCH
2020 Small Bets Seed Grant Program
The Office of the EVPR is pleased to announce the launch of new annual $2 million seed grant program, Small Bets. This program is our bet that Georgia Tech researchers are the key to solving many of society’s most intractable problems.
Collaborating to Create the Next Great Innovations
Today’s innovations often take place at the intersection of disciplines. Georgia Tech's research enterprise encourages the kinds of multidisciplinary collaboration that makes these advances possible.
We've broken down the barriers between our schools, colleges, and interdisciplinary research organizations to provide federal agencies, companies, state government, and private organizations the results they expect from research investments.
Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities in the volume of research conducted, and in 2019, we attracted more than $1 billion to help address critical challenges in computing, engineering, design, the sciences, liberal arts, and business.
Ranked fifth among U.S. public universities by U.S. News & World Report and with all of our graduate engineering programs ranked among the top ten in the nation, Georgia Tech attracts top faculty, researchers, and students to develop the next big ideas in areas such as enterprise-level artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, quantum systems and hypersonic technologies.
Putting Innovation into Action
But developing the next big ideas in research isn’t enough. We’re also moving these solutions out into the world through commercialization and technology transfer, powering an innovation ecosystem to benefit stakeholders ranging from students to startup companies.
We recently opened Coda, a 21-story public-private building designed not only to encourage interdisciplinary research but also to create new collaboration opportunities with industry in Technology Square, one of the South’s largest innovation districts.
Georgia Tech is in the business of creating the next — the next big idea, the next great technology, and the next legion of visionary leaders. Bound together by passion and skill, spurred by our imaginations, and rolling up our sleeves to get it done, our faculty, researchers, and students are solving the grand challenges of our time.
The Minds of the New Machines
Machine learning has been around for decades, but the advent of big data and more powerful computers has increased its impact significantly, moving machine learning beyond pattern recognition and natural language processing into a broad array of scientific disciplines. Georgia Tech is a leader in this application-rich component of artificial intelligence.read the full story
