A multi-institutional team of researchers is using Chameleon -- the cloud computing system for research operated by the Computation Institute and Texas Advanced Computing Center -- to study cyberattacks, detect vulnerabilities, and improve defenses.  


The University of Chicago Innovation Fund has been kind to the Computation Institute. One year ago,, led by CI Senior Fellow Mike Wilde, received funding from the UChicago-backed initiative to support entrepreneurship on campus. Last summer, the Array of Things project kept the streak alive, receiving $150,000 to begin manufacturing its sensor nodes. But for the fall round of the Innovation Fund, we doubled down with two winning startups from CI researchers: Navipoint Genomics and Praedictus Climate Solutions.


Navipoint Genomics and Praedictus Climate Solutions, two companies launched by CI researchers at Globus and the Center for Robust Decision Making on Climate and Energy Policy (RDCDP), received funding in the latest round of the University of Chicago Innovation Fund.
