IPaT Overview

Empowering People Through Human-Centered Technologies

At the Institute for People & Technology (IPaT), we connect Georgia Tech researchers and a network of industry, government and nonprofit partners to create game-changing ideas and new technologies that drive economic growth and empower people.


Everyday, our interdisciplinary teams of computer scientists, system scientists, and engineers collaborate with doctors, designers, teachers, government officials, architects and others to change our community and our world. Through living laboratories and multidisciplinary projects, we tackle and solve society’s most pressing problems.

IPaT focuses on five main areas of research: health, media, education, humanitarian systems and enterprise transformation. We maximize the impact of our research through a “3T” approach:
