  • To address the unique clinical needs of resource-limited environments through the development of equipment and apps that support (and can be maintained by) local hospitals. A key design constraint will be the use of equipment and technologies that can be maintained and repaired by the hospitals that use them.This includes using locally sourced equipment and developing apps that can run on...

  • This VIP employs the sidekick model of global social entrepreneurship to leverage market forces to accomplish 3 critical objectives.  The first is to identify superhero local leaders in the global south who have a long track record of success in transforming their communities with social innovation.  The second is to inspire the world about these largely unknown change agents and...

  • Develop, evaluate and deploy health analytics applications that can help doctors and patients to make better and healthy decisions.

  • The project is an ongoing project focused on designing a hip hop-based innovation archive of educational resources and online courses that is accessed/experienced in three ways: 1) a subscription-based portal of downloadable materials, online courses, and webinars that offer hip hop-based educational resources for use in secondary and post...

  • To improve health outcomes, nutrition, and general living conditions in developing nations and resource-limited environments through a variety of key technologies. These solutions include: sensors for sanitation in challenging environments, improving access to...

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

  • To enhance spectrum utilization, enable improved use of smart devices (smartphones, tablets), and create intelligent mechanisms for debugging, monitoring, policing and enhancing all types of wireless communications through the use of software defined radio techniques, machine learning, and a cognitive systems architecture.

  • 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.

  • Design, test, and use systems to enhance student learning in Tech courses by applying techniques that include video and data mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and human-computer interfaces.

  • Internet of things (IOT) has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry. Thus far, most IOT applications focus on improving monitoring and physiological sensing of healthcare and patient care; however, the next generation of healthcare technologies will focus on multiplexed points of care testing, diagnostics, and treatment. The goal of this course is to engage students to explore...

  • 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 purpose of the Living Building Science team is to evaluate the impact of the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design on the non-human living and nonliving environment using sustainable scientific methods.

  • The goal of this VIP course is to get students engaged in the design and deployment of low-cost air quality sensors on the Georgia Tech campus and around Atlanta, in the analysis of the resulting data streams, and in the development of new policies and practices to address poor air quality on campus and beyond. Throughout the VIP, we focus on building strong collaborative research skills,...

  • 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 examine how small, low cost unmanned aerial vehicles can be used to deliver items, operate in constrained environments, and maximize efficiency.  To achieve this, we will develop electromechanical designs, avionics, and algorithms for small, low cost, aerial vehicles.  We will first focus on developing gliding vehicles that are catapult launched.  Once the platforms are...

  • NASA, Georgia Tech, and GTRI are developing energy technologies to support future missions to Mars. The VIP M.A.R.S. Team will research, develop, and test renewable energy systems in collaboration with scientists and engineers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Moon and Mars offer difficult challenges to NASA’s ambitious plan for exploration, including acquisition of reliable and...

  • The 2020 Great American Outdoors Act allocates over $9 billion to support a backlog of National Park Service projects, equity outreach programs, and infrastructure needs. This VIP seeks to establish a Public Innovation Center where GT students collaborate with Atlanta based NPS staff to bring innovate research methodologies and practices to our state and federal agencies while helping build...

  • The United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to promote peace, end poverty, and protect the planet. Building resilient Infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable Industrialization, and fostering Innovation are the themes for UN SDG9. The UN SDG16 promotes peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, and building inclusive institutions at all levels....

  • Modern electronic devices are powerful but uninspiring; they are ubiquitous but ephemeral. We will design and fabricate devices for music production, gaming, and computing sparked by real-world designs from the past as well as fictional formulations of imagined futures. The black-and-white, utilitarian minimalism of modern laptops and cell phones that blight the aisles of Best Buy with boredom...

  • To develop robotic sensing platforms for environmental and other monitoring tasks such as oil spill surveys, environmental clean-ups, etc. To develop autonomy solutions for airborne, maritime, and other mobile sensing networks.
