The Crowd Intelligence Lab, directed by Prof. Kurt Luther, is an interdisciplinary research group at Virginia Tech. We build and study crowdsourcing systems that support creativity and discovery. Our recent work focuses on crowd-supported investigation and visual analysis in domains such as national security, journalism, and history. We are funded by the National Science Foundation (including a CAREER Award), the National Institutes of Health, the National Archives, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Google.

The Crowd Lab is affiliated with the Department of Computer Science, the Department of History, the Center for Human–Computer Interaction, the Hume Center for National Security and Technology, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology at Virginia Tech.
