From the Dean's Desk - July 28, 2020

Dear GT Computing colleagues,

Georgia Tech Dean of Computing Charles Isbell

One of the great pleasures of being here is watching our colleagues find new ways to use computing to solve problems. This is especially true right now when the problem in question is a pandemic, and the solutions can positively impact every single person on the planet.

As such, I am proud to say that our faculty, staff, and students have risen to the challenge. I have spoken before about Covid research in the College of Computing, but new projects continually arise… as tends to happen when you have a world-class research community. I’d love to take some time today to recognize some of these efforts:

Please join me in thanking these folks for their contributions. Our community is making a difference in an environment of chaos, and I think we can all feel good about that.

Peace.
