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, with applications in domains such as national security, journalism, history, biology, and design. This work is funded by the NSF (including a CAREER Award), the NIH, the NEH, the National Archives, and Google.

The Crowd Lab is based in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. We are also affiliated with Virginia Tech’s Department of History, the Center for Human–Computer Interaction, the Hume Center for National Security and Technology, the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology, and the Information, Trust, and Society Initiative.
