Foundational and Applied Research for the AI Era
Born out of Cornell University’s historic Faculty of Computing and Information Science and College of Engineering, Cornell Tech is the next iteration of the university’s 150 years of leadership in engineering and computer science. We continue Cornell’s long tradition in foundational academic research with the practical, hands-on, builder-mindset needed to bring it into use in the world.
We bring together top-ranked faculty and researchers across disciplines to consider the societal implications of our research from the outset— not as an afterthought. From privacy to transparency and bias, in contexts spanning healthcare to urban systems, our research reflects real-world challenges.
Learning by building
From fully-equipped robotics and fabrication labs to initiatives shaping global economic policy and social justice, our labs and initiatives prove what’s possible when world-renowned researchers can experiment freely.
Applying technology to real-world challenges
The Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech fosters radical experimentation at the intersection of research, education, and entrepreneurship. Our interdisciplinary approach focuses on three industry-centric hubs that address contemporary social and economic needs:
Urban Tech Hub
Developing and applying technological solutions to make cities more livable, sustainable, and resilient.
Health Tech Hub
Promoting technologies for healthier living, healthcare information systems, and medical monitoring and diagnosis.
Connective Media Hub
Examining the social impacts and full utility of ecosystems formed when communication, information, and media converge.
