Technology and Society

Technology and society research at Carnegie Mellon encompasses work focused on applications that enrich and sustain the conduct of our lives and the functioning of our society — or mechanisms enabling those applications. The domains are varied and include every level of society’s functioning: from personal interaction with cyberspace and optimized business-to-business electronic commerce to new methods for manufacturing self-organizing micro-systems and improving individual healthcare diagnostics to detect pandemics. The outputs vary from comprehensive systems to component technology, and the time frames for transition from research to field deployment may stretch from a year to a decade. Our research thrusts include the searchable web, Internet hygiene, patient care and early epidemic prediction.
