The Crowd Lab at Virginia Tech is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, designers, and engineers exploring the power of crowdsourcing for catalyzing creativity and discovery. We develop innovative systems for making sense of complex, high-volume, rapidly changing data by augmenting computational techniques with crowdsourced human intelligence. This work benefits diverse domains, including national security, journalism, and digital humanities.

Our research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Archives (NHPRC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Google.
