  • With an approval from the Georgia Tech IRB, we are in the process of building and transcribing a corpus of recorded audio interviews with Georgia Tech students. (So far, we have recorded and transcribed 25 interviews, but we aim for over 100 to get enough data for each of the different demographic and political affiliations that interest us.)  We use phonetic software to measure the...

  • The main goal of the ACT (Autonomous and Connected Transportation) Lab is to understand interactions between drivers/travelers, emerging vehicular technologies related to connectivity and autonomy, and novel infrastructure designs using a driving simulator environment, analytical modeling, and field test tracks. Using the collected data, we seek to develop analytical models and perform data...

  • To develop a system that will be able to drive like an expert human driver. In order to achieve this, we will initially monitor the driving styles of several drivers using a high-fidelity driving simulator. Based on the measurements, we will be able to classify drivers according to their skill using graphical inference models. We will then develop suitable models for drivers’ actions and...

  • Creation and analysis of a repository of humor collected via crowdsourcing and social network integration.

  • To develop and implement new approaches with cognitive reasoning modules and advanced data and knowledge visualization to enhance the experience and usefulness of crowdsourced problem-solving.

  • To discover physical principles of how animals move in complex, challenging environments. Use tools from physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, and robotics to extract mechanism of how animal and engineered systems move, especially with respect to stability, agility, and robustness.

  • To produce novel, creative media about recent scientific discoveries and engineering innovations. These include but are not limited to: interactive museum-style exhibitions, online articles and videos, and festival exhibits. Specifically, the team will create one exhibit or demo per semester, and each team member will publish bi-weekly in the online science magazine Charged. ...

  • The built environment plays a fundamental role in hour daily life. It impacts our health, performance, stress levels, social relations, and even the contagion of COVID-19. This project explores expanding the Building Performance Analytics towards a dynamic spatiotemporal framework, studying the characteristics of spaces combined with human activities and organizational processes that...

  • Electronic sports, known as esports, are experiencing a meteoric rise in popularity thanks in large part to technological advances in network connectivity, game engines, online streaming platforms, and novel fan experience engagements. Over 300 million fans have streamed more than 300 million hours on the Twitch platform alone, and global viewership is now expected to exceed 400 million....
