The Crowd Lab, directed by Prof. Kurt Luther, is an interdisciplinary research group at Virginia Tech. We build and study systems that leverage the power of crowdsourced human intelligence to support creativity and discovery. Our work has applications in many domains, including national security, journalism, and history.

We are affiliated with the Department of Computer Science, the Center for Human–Computer Interaction, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology at Virginia Tech.

Our research is funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Archives, the National Institutes of Health, and Google.
