The Crowd Lab at Virginia Tech, directed by Prof. Kurt Luther, is an interdisciplinary research group exploring the power of crowdsourcing for catalyzing creativity and discovery. We build innovative systems that augment computational techniques with crowdsourced human intelligence. This work benefits diverse domains, including national security, journalism, and history.

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