From Big Data projects like Strayer University's student support system to AI projects like Carnegie Mellon's socially aware robot, researchers are discovering that cloud technology can help make academic research cheaper, faster, easier, and more secure. Whether you're just starting out with a new idea, or validating your work before sharing it with the public, we want to help you advance your new discoveries. Academic researchers in qualified regions are encouraged to apply. Like the Google Cloud Platform Education Grants to support computer science courses and the partnership to support National Science Foundation (NSF) grants in BIGDATA, our GCP research credits program supports faculty who want to take advantage of GCP's data storage, analytics, and machine-learning capabilities. Andrew V. Sutherland, a computational number theorist and Principal Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is one of a growing number of academic researchers who have already made the transition and benefited from GCP.
