Gizmodo: How Vanderbilt’s secret software lab is saving America

On a quiet street just off of Nashville’s historic Music Row, a dedicated team of more than 100 researchers are developing software systems that may very well revolutionize the modern world.

From cutting edge cyber-security tech designed to defend America’s most critical networks to computer-learning algorithms that could all but eliminate airline crashes, Vanderbilt’s Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) is making our Internet of Things safer, better, stronger, and more resilient.

I recently sat down with Professor Doug Schmidt, Associate Chair of the Computer Science and Engineering Program at Vanderbilt University, to learn more about what goes on at this secretive research center. You won’t believe what they’ve got in store.
