MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms is an interdisciplinary initiative exploring the boundary between computer science and physical science. CBA studies how to turn data into things, and things into data. See www.cba.mit.edu for more information.
The MIT Center for Bits and Atoms is declaring it's interest and support to the Global Humanitarian Lab as follows:
"The Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA) at MIT will collaborate with the GHL on the research roadmap for the network, as well as on field trials of innovations, and collaboration where projects align across the network so that GHL partners can contribute to, and learn from, CBA research."
