Center for Spatiotemporal Thinking, Computing, and Applications (CSTCA)
The Center for Spatiotemporal Thinking, Computing, and Applications (STC) collaborates with agencies and industry to conduct leading spatiotemporal innovations to improve human intelligence, develop new software tools, and build innovative solutions to address 21st century challenges such as providing just-in-time, efficient responses to natural hazards, environmental pollution, and emergencies.
STC, also called the Spatiotemporal Innovation Center, is building the national and international spatiotemporal infrastructure to use spatiotemporal applications to advance:
- Computer software and tools through spatiotemporal computing.
- Human intelligence through spatiotemporal thinking.
- Human capacity to respond to deep scientific questions and grand engineering challenges.
- George Mason University
- Harvard University
Developing new applications using technologies and methods developed from the other two research areas.
Utilizing spatiotemporal principles and patterns to optimize computing infrastructure to enable science discoveries and engineering developments.
Developing new thinking methodologies to improve human intelligence.
