Computing beyond the limits of Moore’s Law, diving into an ocean of big data, and defending critical economic and technological pillars from cyberattacks are a few of the initiatives highlighted in the 2016 School of Computer Science (SCS) Annual Report.
Released today by the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Computing, the report emphasizes the school’s recent accomplishments and new initiatives in novel computer architectures, big data, and cybersecurity research that transpired during FY ’16.
The report surveys the growth of the Georgia Tech Institute for Information Security & Privacy’s multi-tiered cybersecurity research, delves into next generation computer constructions with Georgia Tech’s new Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies, and discusses the need for Georgia Tech’s latest interdisciplinary research institute, the Institute for Data Engineering and Science.
Additional highlights featured in the report are the $11.6 million awarded to SCS in FY ’16, the highest acquisition of new research funding by the school since 2013, and the remarkable success of Georgia Tech’s online Master of Computer Science (OMS CS) program.
“Our school is dedicated to breaking the silos that hinder computer science’s progress and expansion,” said SCS Chair Lance Fortnow. “This report encompasses the school’s investments in engineering tomorrow’s computing world, and we’re happy to share those accomplishments through this annual report.”
The report also showcases the success of SCS’s graduate students with a collection of profiles that shine a light on their accomplishments and future endeavors. Moreover, the publication shares stories of SCS alumni who are delivering astounding contributions to the field of computer science.
