Awards for two professors of computing at Georgia Tech

As an associate professor at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Ashwin Ram works primarily in the areas of artificial intelligence and cognitive science. Ram founded the Enkia Corporation and is the director of Georgia Tech's Cognitive Computing Lab. His research group won a $2.8-million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Integrated Learning Program, becoming the second of only two teams to receive a four-year contract that is part of a $25 million scheme. Lockhead Martin and many prominent universities are involved. Another computer scientist at Georgia Tech, Subhash Khot, is as assistant professor with an interest in complexity theory. The $45,000 award he won this year was one of the 116 fellowships given by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in New York. Khot is also the recipient of a 2005 Microsoft New Faculty Fellowship.
