Brian Magerko, professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, has received a $573,561-grant from the National Science Foundation to further his work at the intersection of cognition, performance, and artificial intelligence.

The grant (NSF 2123597) will fund “research to develop a computational architecture (called PACE) to model embodied and co-creative behavior between humans and embodied intelligent machines,” according to the NSF award.

Thinking about engineering? Think Georgia Tech, of course. There are scores of reasons why America’s No. 8 public university always figures into the top recommendations for engineering schools — and why our College of Engineering's undergraduate program ranks fourth in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 edition of America’s Best Colleges.

As we remember the contributions of Black students, faculty, and staff at Georgia Tech, we also remember the significance of the spaces and places they occupied along this journey.

The communities in and around Atlanta have played a pivotal part in the advancement of civil rights and racial justice. There are sites right here on Georgia Tech’s campus – and many more nearby – that represent milestones from a continued path toward greater equity and inclusion.

In keeping with Georgia Tech’s mission of developing leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition, we recognize the many ways our Black students, faculty, and staff represent, support, and celebrate their rich culture and storied impact at the Institute and beyond. Their stories and voices tell of bold dreams and remind us that change does not happen by chance. It happens through courage, conviction, and diverse and inclusive action. Their initiatives, leadership, and vision are a defining part of our past and a critical part of our future.
