Small autonomous robots perform group tasks and their emergent behaviors are studied with big data techniques.

The Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) provides a unified point to connect government, industry, and academia to advance foundational research, and accelerate the adoption of Big Data technology. IDEaS leverages expertise and resources from throughout Georgia Tech's colleges, research labs, and external partners, to define and pursue grand challenges in data science foundations and in data-driven discovery, with energy infrastructure as one of those grand challenges. We are also dedicated to educating students and those already in the workforce through innovative educational and training programs.
