Pitt Cyber Accelerator Grants Fund SCI Faculty Projects

This year, three faculty members of the School of Computing and Information (SCI) received funding from the Pitt Cyber Accelerator Grants.

The Cyber Accelerator Grants are distributed to innovative projects that progress Pitt Cyber's mission to engage the University in issues regarding networks, data, and algorithms within the relevant fields of law, policy, and technology.
