The School of Interactive Computing (IC) aims to redefine the human experience of computing using two primary tools: research and innovation in computing education.
Our School nurtures an open, inclusive, supportive environment made stronger through multiple perspectives and diverse expertise. Research takes faculty and students on a path to study, invent and integrate the computational capabilities and their interactions that empower people and machines to affect the world. Through innovation in education, they help create a computationally literate citizenry and new generation of computational scholars.
Our faculty conceived the discipline of interactive computing to examine the impacts computation and computing-mediated interactions have on everyday life–on “big issues,” such as health care and national security, but also on the activities in which all of us engage: children playing video games, adults keeping in touch with elderly parents, professionals using computers as tools in the workplace. These interactions take place not in laboratories but in homes and offices, schools and hospitals, and computation plays a central role.
Specifically our research concentrates in several distinct areas: artificial intelligence and machine learning; geometry, graphics and animation; human-centered computing and cognitive science; information visualization and visual analytics; learning science and technology, and computing education; robotics and computational perception; social computing and computational journalism; ubiquitous and wearable computing; and virtual and augmented environments. Together these areas form a rich, panoramic view of the myriad ways computing and computational devices interact with their human creators and users.

Where there is a potential problem, predictive health aims to intervene at the very earliest indication, based on an individual's personal profile, and restore normal function. One of the cross-cutting initiatives in Emory's new strategic plan, the Predictive Health Institute includes not only medicine, public health and nursing, but also anthropology, ethics, behavior, health policy, law, business and religion.
