Computer Science at the Core of Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech's executive vice-president of research Steve Cross announced the core areas for interdisciplinary research at the Institute (Q&A with Steve). Four of these areas have their natural home in computer science, broadly defined: Big Data, People and Technology, Robotics and Systems and most of the other core areas have significant overlap with CS.

Georgia Tech really gets the importance of computing, not just with its own college, but with a recognition that the research at Tech has a critical computational component. One can really see computer science in almost every unit of the Institute. Just make me all the more excited to be here.
